With the holiday's about, I'm in a constant state of remembrances concerning my parents. As those of you that knew my mother Johnnie are quite aware, she was a force of nature. Many years ago when working at Phillips Andover, my parents and some PA friends went to dinner in Lawrence MA. The Smothers Brothers were dining at the next table and after a few minutes Tommy Smothers had slowly moved his chair over to our table. Evidently my mom was too entertaining for him to ignore. Thanks to Douglas Kinney for sparking this memory!

In 10 days, we will recall the era of Marilyn, Dylan, Beatles, Motown, Stones, Janis Joplin, Beach Boys, Doors, Hendrix, Santana, Elvis, Animals, Kennedys, Martin Luther King & Blood Sweat and Tears. The 1960s - a cultural explosion of art, music and politics. Music spanned the range from acoustic folk to hard rock. There was the Twist, Ventures and Kingsmen, then Simon and Garfunkel, Otis Redding, Cream, Joni Mitchell, Canned Heat, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young and many more, including the Temptations, Creedence, Clapton, Dean Martin, Cash, Sinatra and Buck Owens. Inner cities (the ghettos) rioted and burned; 50,000 troops died in the jungles of Nam. Peace and civil rights marches were frequent, with college protests, draft card and bra burnings and assassinations. And, man landed on the moon. It was time of great accomplishments and expressions, tragedies and entertainment. We laughed to Andy Griffith, Carol Burnett, Rowan and Martin, the Smothers Brothers and George Carlin. Return with us on Saturday, ...

When I was watching the Hall of Fame induction ceremony on HBO the other night, there was a clip of Linda Ronstadt saying how her career took off after she appeared at the Troubadour, which is in West Hollywood near Beverly Hills. This brought back memories for me, as during the 1970s I went to the Troubadour several times, seeing such performers as Don McLean (who sang Amerocan Pie) twice, Neil Sedaka, Johnny Rivers and a slew of others. The Troubadour has a unique atmosphere, as it only seats about 200 people, so you have a good seat no matter where you sit. The only cost was a two drink minimum, which cost only about $15bucks in those days. Elton John made his first U.S. appearance there on August 25, 1970, being introduced by Neil Diamond. Others who performed there were James Taylor, Carole King, Jackson Browne, The Eagles, The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, Bette Midler, The Pointer Sisters and Bruce Springstein. Comics Cheech & Chong and Steve Martin were discovered t ...

Chicago Blues guitarist Otis "Big Smokey" Smothers was born on this day in 1929 in Lexington, MS. Chicago Blues has its own 'Smothers Brothers. I don`t know which one Mom always like best. Otis "Big Smokey" was the older brother of Albert (Abe) "Little Smokey" Smothers by a decade, and was the first to arrive in Chicago from Mississippi. Big Smokey played around the South Side and hooked up with Howlin` Wolf, recording "Who`s Been Talking", "Tell Me", "Going Back Home" and "I Asked For Water" with The Wolf in 1956-'57. Federal Records recorded Smothers with Freddy King on lead guitar and released an album in the early 60s that is now highly prized by collectors. Aside from a few obscure singles, Big Smokey did not record again untill 1986 when he released "Got My Eyes On You" on Red Beans Records. Ace Records has re-issued the delightful "Sings The Back Porch Blues" and Wolf Records has "Chicago Blues: Vol 1". Smothers also recorded with The Paul Butterfield Blues Band and Bo Diddley.
Chicago's most listenable comedy show clocks in for its fourth year with a tighter format and a revamped playlist. Highlights include Bill Cosby on marriage, Robert Klein on dentists, the Smothers Brothers on the Smothers' mother, Bob and Ray on football half-time shows, Shelley Berman on the Steve Allen show, and Jay Leno on his parents.

For no apparent reason at all I remind u: Significantly, the Smothers Brothers received their Freedom of Speech Award [in 2012] from comic David Steinberg, whose controversial mock sermons on The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour played a key part in having that variety show yanked and the brothers fired, despite three successful seasons on CBS from 1967 to 1969 and an announced renewal for a fourth.

Today, in the history of Rock and Roll, December 15th: 1957: Mitch Miller and Sammy Davis Jr. blast rock and roll in a syndicated radio talk show hosted by Davis. However, MGM label president Arnold Maxim disagrees, stating he sees no end to the fad in the near future. 1968: The Jefferson Airplane's Grace Slick appears on CBS' Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour in blackface, mimicking the recent Olympic scandal by holding up a "black power" salute at the end of the band's song "Crown of Creation." The network is not amused. 1969: UNICEF holds a "Peace For Christmas" charity concert in London which features the debut of the Plastic Ono Band (featuring George Harrison, Eric Clapton, Billy Preston, Keith Moon, and others). It was to be Lennon's last stage appearance in Britain. The Rascals and Desmond Dekker and the Aces also perform.

The Doors playing Touch Me live on the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour.
    Liam grows some balls, Hope loses her edge, Quinn loses her temper and I’m losing patience waiting on Steffy to show up. Crap sure is hitting the fan with the gang, isn’t it? It was bad enough having to put up with Dopey Hope hosting a family get together in Stephanie’s house acting like the queen bee, but did we have to watch Bill sit between Katie and Brooke as well? I’m not going to go into what a fiasco the entire family thanksgiving was because we all know it was enough to make you throw up your turkey just listening to it. Now, though, it seems that things are getting a bit interesting, especially with Liam growing a pair while Hope gets knocked down a peg or two. Who would have thought, right? LIAM, now, getting all ‘man’ up in Hope’s face, “Look, doll, it’s time to stop the BS and get to saying the vows.” Awww poor Hope, she has to give up one of the Smothers Brothers. Hope is no more ready for marriage than a kindergartener is for law school. What we’re seeing here is ...

T.V. TRIVIA: What corny, uncontroversial variety show did CBS replace "The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour" with in 1969?
So yesterday we were watching something on TV and I said, as I often do "That reminds me of..." and started to laugh because I could not recall the name, as that often happens, and I said to Ray "you know who I am thinking of" as I often do and he laughed and said "The Smothers Brothers" which was absolutely right and we both cracked up -- Ray wondered what was funnier the fact that I could not remember the names or that he usually knows what I am talking about -- so funny! Gosh I love him. :-)
The smothers brothers, remember them? Check them out on utube, so funny!

First song I ever "saw" The Who play - during their appearance on the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour in '67 (before most of you kids were born). Then they blew my mind by playing "My Generation" and destroying their gear, complete with Moon going airborne off the back of the drum riser after a bit too much black powder in the explosive charge that took out his kit, and supposedly, some of Townshend's hearing.
This is tonight. See me and Aaron Henkin as a demonic version of the Smothers Brothers. You will never be the same again.

I really admire the Smothers Brothers ability to spend six minutes getting through thirty seconds of a two minute song.
Whoopi Goldberg has a documentary on HBO about the life of comedian Jackee "Moms" Mabley. Those of us of a certain age remember her being a guest on the talk shows and variety shows of the '60's and early '70's, such as Ed Sullivan or The Smothers Brothers. There is one clip of her on Hugh Hefner Playboy After Dark, which featured actors and actresses, musicians and comedians of the day. Moms performed the song Abraham, Martin, and John, of which she recorded a version which made it to the top 40 on the charts. Now while she didn't have a beautiful singing voice, it was a very intimate and emotional moment considering the assassinations of John F Kennedy, Robert F Kennedy, and Martin Luther King during the 1960's.
Lisa Mikitarian is a friend of ours and is looking for her biological father. If you are in the music industry, and happen to know folks associated with Peggy-Lee, the Smothers Brothers or retired from the Willam-Morris Talent Agency, please pass this on!
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED .Pete Seeger.Blacklisting. During the McCarthy Era of the 1940’s and early 1950’s, many musicians were subpoenaed to testify before the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC). Seeger refused to testify on the basis of the First Amendment and was blacklisted. Because Seeger was among those listed in the entertainment industry blacklist publication, Red Channels, all of the Weavers were placed under FBI surveillance and not allowed to perform on television or radio during the McCarthy era. American Folk Revival and Activism Despite being banned from performing on TV and radio, Seeger re-emerged on the public scene in the 1960s as a solo artist performing protest music in support of international disarmament, civil rights, and environmental causes. Seeger was very influential in the American folk music revival. Seeger went on to influence the Folk Song Revival of the 1960′s, inspiring artists like Bob Dylan, Peter, Paul and Mary, Joan Baez, and the Kingston Trio. In the mid ...
