Cotolo Chronicles: Ain’t That a Trip in the Head
The first hour of the Feb. 28 show will be a satirical tribute to the origins of progressive-rock radio. In 1967 FM stations began to drop classical-music formats, replacing them with a hip, “meaningful music” soundscape where the DJ donned a near-guru personality to engine the train of musical thought. Any recording was fit for a show as long as it was part of the theme, though many times the theme itself was a stream of consciousness. Turn on and tune in the first hour with “Frank Michaels” and a trip into the head of your soul, man. Then, join our usual host for the second hour, a review of Rolling Stone’s 30 greatest rock ‘n roll movie moments.
