KFXM Tiger Mag April 28, 1967

Jocko on the cover. Interesting articles this week in Bits & Pieces. Legal action brought about by some radio stations playing Day In The Life-Beatles before album release. LS Bumblebee getting some attention, also.
Also an announcement that The Beach Boys next single release will not be Heroes & Villians, but Vegetables. But it didn't turn out that way.
Picture of local group Blues In A Bottle, and a picture and article about The Good Feelins

#1 again I Think We're Alone Now-Tommy James & The Shondells. Respect-Aretha Franklin debuting at #32.
Anyone rememeber Yes, We Have No Bananas-United Fruit Company?
A couple of picks this week Let's Live For Today-Grass Roots and Mirage-Tommy James & The Shondells

My Danny Dare autograph issue of the Tiger Mag.

Yea, I remember "we have no bananas"
back in 67. I thought it was
a weird title. But I think that
song is older than you think.
From the 20s?

Look it up in your Funk & Wagnal ??

Couple of notes:
1: "Dead end Street" by Lou Rawls
is never played again. Another
chicago ghetto story.
Cabrini Green had a lot of stories,
I guess.
I always did like the song, though.
Along with "Give a Damn" by
Spanky & our gang. ALso, "In the
ghetto" by Presley. They too relate
to ghetto problem in Chicago but have a universal message. Thus
their popularity.

2: Nancy Sinatra had 3 songs in
the top 40. Nice to have a daddy
that was the chaiman of Reprise.

Just a couple of observations.
