K/mentertainer September 30, 1967

Article shows a picture of the 1966-67 Sunshine Superman, Mellow Yellow Donovan Cover shows a 1965 Catch The Wind, Universal Donovan. Which one did you like better?
Jason St. George has completed his short stay at K/MEN, and they now welcome Russ O'Hara!

#1 The Letter-Box Tops
The last three Hit Bounds listed I don't remember. Little Anthony & The Imperials version of You Only Live Twice Three In The Morning-Bobby Goldsboro and There She Goes-Blues Magooos

The most requested box at the bottom of the survey is interesting. One song Holiday-Bee Gees is hitbound. By being one of the most requested, you would think it would already be headed up the top 30.

You're right about those 3
songs. Never heard of them.
Bet they'll be off the chart
next week.

You're being too logical on
HOLIDAY. Yea if it's that
popular it should be half
way up the 30. Did you think
radio was logical? Nope, it's create
as you go along.....

I was at that Donovan concert. I remember an announcement that the warm-up bands wouldn't be playing due to a request by Donovan. He didn't want the audience to get excited by loud music but to be in a relaxed mood for his performance. Sparing no expense my girlfriend and I had seats in the $5 section.

I have never heard those songs either ! They may have only been "paper ads", a practice common in those days to apease the record promo people. I never did that myself. I like both of the Donovan songs mentioned, but I would go with "Colors" by Donovan. One of my Turtle favs is on the chart this week "You know what I mean". Jonny Bruce

Were there any disappointed Caretakers fans there, when their group didn't go on at the Donovan concert? I've never heard of the group Chocolate Tunnel. Probably their only opening for a star attraction and didn't get to play.

I don't remember any shouting or other objections to the announcement of no Caretakers or other opening act. Thinking about it now, maybe the opening acts weren't intended to show up or didn't get paid and the annoucement was a covering ruse. After all it was a school night...
