Comment below about KFXM being #1 in the ratings with a L.A. station coming in at #2.
Yardbirds article and picture with Al Anthony and it appears to be Jim Conniff, too.
Under Bits & Pieces there is a mention of a Beach Boys tour of England, next single of Heroes & Villians and new album Smile (to be delayed only 45 years)

I never got the connection between
the lyrics and title of WHO KILLED THE ICE CREAM MAN.

Splain, Lucy.

Do you all know JIM CONNIFF was the
son of RAY CONNIFF of SOMEHWERE MY LOVE fame? Jim hated to reminded of
that. DOn't think he had a good
rapport with daddy.

I just remember Jimmy Conniff for that horrible fright wig he wore to cover his bald pate!
And yes, it was already known about his famous Big Band leader pappy.
