Are -- rock and roll on the FM dial because everything previous to that was on the AM dial. Right so people when people discovered it. They've basically Woodstock nation when they discovered music on FM. I was the midnight power struggle from midnight to 7 in the morning seven days a week and the greatest thrill from these seven days away seven days a week I was a dedicated -- -- -- -- I loved it. And my guests were Muddy Waters at hello wolf Roland Kirk. I had and Van Morrison I had Led Zeppelin The Who year old guess because they should. They came to the after the show after the show in the new boss who was the first place that many of the British fans came to play this that would come from England the Boston played the Boston Tea Party. And then come up to my radio show and it was the first actual. Airways that they got in the states so I got to meet them and then as the Kyle's been. Became more more popular had to leave. Radio prisoner couldn't do it seven days a week then I started doing that we Jones never started taping. Though it's a -- taping it wasn't as much fun because -- like -- radio right -- dressed. This yeah that's -- that's the only way it should be right exactly. You know -- Bruce's friend of mine -- -- -- come here come in yet or not but he's he used to work that the BC and when you come back for the birthday every year oh yeah. And he says that -- -- one of the things he always remembered by the it was you'd say. You be about ten minutes and -- say. Don't get hungry. I can use a pizza. Say about a half hour later the cavs would start arriving at. And they would just be like the whole street would be thronged with people send them over pizzas that are elderly all the -- the guys like him the interns in the lower rank and producers that'll take all the pizza Solomon Mike from. For weeks afterwards that do have an off the Peter Wolf pizzas well this does might be true but I think you might have emulated that because I see here and beyond that I. Actually the best deli food and towns and I've brought to you from Leo's placed into my favorite breakfast nook and only real. Restaurant -- Harvard Square it's Leo's actually Leo's boy's diner. When they're great so that they're -- to about seven and I'm and there -- seven days a week we OC and then now ya Michael sole woman brought in some yes it will grow Formica for about your -- Coolidge corner calorie royal artillery old -- here and down. Thank you Michael -- bring him in the -- -- isn't much of that and there's our Larry has just arrived in peace stood. He's -- you lived off your pizzas every year he he didn't have to buy any food for Ramallah there where there went the pepperoni. Now knowing how -- Chris what was the first rock concert you went to. I think and you I'm glad you asked me this -- think a little but I think it was I saw. Slide in the film we stoned enough Providence sun hung up in 1968. I'll give an interest in fact sly and the family stone came to Boston stay here for about a month and a half. And they've played at a place called the psychedelic supermarket which was on commonwealth avenue right near you. And for some reason is they were so the resident band there and and that was before their album came out people don't realize I went to see him quite a lot. But it was before they actually recorded the first record on Columbia. And I was working when DJ and I broke their first. One of the first singles but -- I was in Boston for very long time and he also. Like you like myself with the DJ in San Francisco you -- that -- anywhere in the -- and -- some later on at Harvard Square -- -- -- at Harvard stadium they were there we're doing some kind of fund raiser for somebody yes and I saw him at a very sad concert in harvest group at a place called Jonathan swift's aren't there right maybe forty people there now is very sad to see someone who. Changed the face of music so dramatically to -- -- -- so far from grace and -- -- -- the sad story there but there is still alive right he's still with us in certain ways and still out there and certain ways. But -- his talent is undeniable. Got the movies the more somber later his concerts got blessed my son was in Fayetteville, North Carolina and 71 he was about three hours late -- -- we're doing go to bill. I was going to school at UNC and so we went down we were a couple of us went down there and you know we end up and well we we went -- to the base for a while -- -- we came back out and you know what at a concert and have a good time. Just lie I was I was something else he didn't he was one of the -- actually a list. We -- there at the -- the most famous these do the most memorable concert for me would be there in The Rolling Stones and 72 when they got arrested on enough problems down from Rhode Island yes I was there it was that that the Boston Garden correct and the mayor and -- white came out and rolled up his sleeves and said. Do not worry I am going will let the trains run all play and we're gonna get -- I am gonna get chief riches out of jail in the place whether. And in the meantime I got to pull all the cops out because I -- riot going on down in the south and the need the cops that go fight the the people in the south and so was everyone gonna behave themselves yeah we're behave ourselves. And that I'm only good thing you like you said I'm gonna have the trains open and then like 130 or so we all walked out. Expecting to get the Green Line. There were -- -- but not in the world. Those the first woman ever heard Kevin White lie to me personally. You know it was not the last but it was the first like like. Well did Q3 got a jail he did keep Richardson a photographer some come off the plane and I think that's what happened right I think there wasn't a photographer. Yeah I -- access. -- -- And had a little more serious than that. 1877469432. To listen I I heard that tell you what -- the. He wants had a baby sitter named by the name of Norman Rockwell. Well not yes I did actually my dad was a singer and he was working up and Tanglewood the Wen -- -- first started Leonard Bernstein was the conductor. And my dad would like to do shopping I was always a very ventures child and love to draw are so he would take me to this. So when he knew. Up to the studio and sit me down. And just generally give me crayons and paper and yet -- art studio. And I was young child I didn't realize it was Norman Rockwell who had son also by the name of Peter the sexing me ages myself. And -- really sweet gentleman then you're gonna show me who what is doing and ask certain questions I must have been about seven or eight. I remembered and when I went back. Too -- to studio was as I passed the steps I remember exactly. Precisely go there or maybe every other day it's a different hour to our. So he was he was quite a guy and there's a wonderful museum now mr. bridge yeah Norman Rockwell amusing if it's worth books. There are no CC this is in this is one of these new things and Cuban radio yet daily basis Peterson you have to you have to war make sure that should turn off of the yes -- PS yes cellphone to override our god -- I don't door all the time or turn on. Turn on and turn off 18774694322. Again. Peter Wolf as with us from the BM and he will be at the Wilbur theatre tomorrow night tomorrow night with the midnight travelers right. And you were talking earlier army will take some calls you're just -- moment. You were talking about how things have changed everything is fragmented you know whether it's our Radio One and there all media is fragmented certainly. It's the same thing in -- in music isn't it I mean nobody he can't it's harder to become of a big shot Austin band and it used to be isn't it. Well I think it's worth some music brings I think music it was the first major. Show is say industry to be really dismantled by digital technology. And then it's now moving to journalists and moving into radio. Moving into many fields of TV many of the field and into with the music. Industry was really the first one to be hit. And a lot of people feel low near the record companies is that there's lots of different theories like and talked for awhile on on that but I think. It it is something that because obviously here it's here to stay. But it it it has caused damage and more and mostly. It's given the sum of new bands -- advantage. And a great disadvantage -- that don't have the concentration. But I was coming up where there is specific stations that really supported you -- and also -- radio today -- the music radio. You can do it you oil which is good and that's why I think talk radio so popular but music radio and not all of that but the majority of music radio. The jocks can't play what they feel like -- they're programmed. And they're do so much research that you lost the personality and of abandon this plane on Tuesday night. In the old days -- the Jockey Club do you play on Wednesday. How much about the voice track and I mean a lot of times there -- you know there how many mid day DJ's or even left in the whole country mr. This is true and so I think that's why college radio so important then there's some small independent radio stations for music that's very important. And a satellite has tried to fill the void. But again you're right it's very fragmented it's very hard and that's why with his new album the next souvenirs. I collected there's some great duets one was Shelby Lynne who's a Grammy Award winning artists. The other Neko Case is another award winning artists and someone who you -- I know I love I know you're gonna say I love him. Moral -- immoral and that was one of the highlights of my career. -- is -- sit next to -- the record distract. And we did it right here in Boston actually wryly that he was doing. He was and why did you bring him down here well. I didn't know we have all this food. Pat pat pat pat pat. Swing and all our staff. And well you're very very good with. Okie from Muskogee is drug fighting side -- was two Brothers so yeah that's right but you know with the blue Merle. That those are gonna -- and down my country hawks yes there you walk on the fight and site today you got it. And that Merle. Actually we're very interesting gentlemen very bright German and politically very astute it is not quite what you might think he would be. His politics are very broad and he's an interest in men and one of our greatest songwriters and singers he's on the highest shelf -- who in turn make battery there -- -- not sure Ray Charles. Merle Haggard he is the creme dollar credit. The best. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And a everybody showed up its admiral so I thought we were gonna record turned out there was a Cracker Barrel on world got lost because Cracker Barrel gave a special. Credit card if you believe any Cracker Barrel for free yeah. No -- like Gregor -- was -- junior Gotti -- you we he all was would be there that's the cracker barrels quite quite a place. Now did you find that out. How right I think I read that somewhere -- good -- that do or maybe somebody that some would call me are you somewhat -- rhetoric but where he will he come across the Cracker Barrel. I think he just when he was in prison and that you get the -- would get out of council -- I don't know but we all know is that he they had a couple of big -- -- they -- a couple of -- sit -- and he insisted that they go to Cracker Barrel on everybody and all the other guys the where there were going what what. Come back -- maybe at a Cracker Barrel credit card to how the process. 18774694323. So you wanna take some calls sure I'd look at Dick -- called it was the first rock concert you went through. None is is is this this is really a spoiler because this was my baptism my sister Julia was a dancer and she danced on the Alan freed big -- TV show. -- -- Is the reason why the rock and roll Hall of -- -- in Cleveland -- great disk jockey echoing that many people. It is disputed that some people feel he coined the term rock and roll. But he surely made rock -- world very popular. And my first concert was and Alan freed rock and roll. Show complicate it was called an -- it was Little Richard. Chuck -- Jerry Lee Lewis joy Campbell of blonde bombshell Frankie lemon and teenagers -- in the Belmont Buddy Holly. To -- -- the don'ts the sheriff tells instead Townsend and and big. And where was this this was down in Manhattan and in the move does so the second show and moved to the Bronx paradise Buddy Holly wasn't on that one but beyond -- and I Jerry Liu and -- Richard then what I soared. Chuck Berry duck walk across the stage when I saw little Richard Pound that piano. Is that it didn't get any better than that and then -- Frankie lemon teenagers came out and saying why do fools fall love. -- -- You know doom and gloom. -- On the I just went nuts. And I became a huge I -- does rock and -- does for another day on I bought records went to the record store every day. Then radio was very very you're listening to satellite what does decade do you listen to them for you listened to some of the new -- type stations I listen to all of it. Kelly but I tell you the one I really. Enjoy a lot is the forties. Because the forty says some of the great swing bands seek Caroline. Seat Caroline Caroline they they hate it when I listen to the forty channel all men you get -- so similar great. Great I mean there there is so final Hampton for all of slash home yeah you can't get better groove and that and that's the interesting thing. That's so much of rock and roll came from or Indian Country and there's so much embedded in the great big bands and many people forgotten how great the big bands but to me. They're like we're Rembrandt does the pinging. -- they -- it doesn't get better than that now there's a new world biography of Duke Ellington just came -- see that it's there we will as who look hasn't -- -- but I have to I've bought the one on Louis Armstrong. And as -- new -- the came out on Arctic shore mean which is a really good ones and they. The one on Louis on charcoal pops this really good and if you like a little modern music -- -- another great biography on Thelonious Monk with who is afraid go to mine too I got to see a lot. And my dad it was an entertainment. Who was a singer his brother was his manager and his brother also managed that -- a -- twirl her. The world's strongest man and a -- My -- And they would need if you automatic right next to Jack Dempsey the and they were there would be the Cilic Christian people with puppets in the red parrot -- almost that would be Alamo Broadway -- go to Barbara yeah that's already so I've I was brought up another whole genre of music but my dad. Insisted I go see. Louis Armstrong and it took -- see Louie Armstrong. With Bing Crosby and it was one of the first musical experiences I -- but. We'll show you don't people lot of people my age anyway I mean the first we -- -- Armstrong was hello -- -- come like. Not even seem like a ground breaker let's put it that way bright he just seem like a -- smaltz a guy. Right -- -- well but history it proved right right I know I know hadn't yet and the pay you DI he had he had paid his dues looks like it's like -- would have been to many actors done. For instance Walter Brennan or -- -- they ended up on TV and people would forget the rich legacy they hadn't film right and even James Stewart and -- fund of people don't remember but they had TV shows that. Even last longer they had him. So the the big bands to -- so that I enjoyed. That's also a Boston. We had the jazz workshop that Paul's mall. All smaller -- the -- we can in there with fake IDs and they had not only Muddy Waters but it's good to see Bob Marley and some of the great big bands and then when he is on the turnpike thought. Article noted that it was pretty rich and because of Berkeley there's a lot of great players buddy rich would come through all the time has been. So and to me. It's like food. I like at all I I don't discriminate in my music if it's good a lot of good. Contemporary country -- stuff I have very hard time taken. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And you hear an old Ernest -- cut or you hear Hank Williams cut -- and earlier Merle Haggard George Jones. There's something they're like in the early rock and roll that right that is like a great. Photograph that's the decisive moment that's captured. So you should listen to what we -- than some all yeah I would usually a matter of fact I was on Willie's bus I was one of the few walk off still standing. I was always sorry when they -- they from Hanks placed a Willie's place -- I thought Hank was hastily Hanks bigger than dwelling but. Well. I agree unless you're talking by Hank snow is very short no -- I think we know who I'm talking gets. -- -- written -- not junior either not -- Monday Night Football that I'll tell you very quick little story we're the Winston-Salem north -- Miller doing what they called chicken -- where you go up the tournament's come down. And Johnny Cash is also. Touring and sure every other stop we run into Johnny Cash and call Perkins though is get the sick and between call and Johnny and talk. I wonder if there was this very attractive woman on the plane. And she called me over city does in the band with a yes and she should do look at a musician rocker growth should do you like country unison yes. Since you said who do you like Eshleman favors Hank Williams who is well really -- I was married to -- As -- you're listening to sergeant saw no not that long I'm going to pick and it turned out to be Hank williams' second wife. Going merited Johnny Horton and yes jewels and our drove over Lazio should shoot some battle getting -- just existence. The very attractively dilemma it's a really gene is Billie Jean Horton with the name at that time. And the issues go we we were chicken hopping -- somewhere in Louisiana and a invited her to the show. And shouldn't come but I -- But Ilya that would salute that I got pretty close to -- millions on the U Tank Williams 187 says he has some good if our flex right who. No great -- 1877.
