K/mentertainer October 28, 1967

Lovely Linda makes the cover of K/mentertainer. The new Kmen Mark Ford and Brad Edwards.
Mark will be around KMEN for a long, long time. Sounds like a good title for a Linda Ronstadt song.

The Doors are making it big on the radio, and not just FM! I remember KMEN played a lot of songs off this album.

Linda Ronstadt article.

Making it to #1 Music Box-The Light

Robert Knight moving up the Hit Bound with Everlasting Love. I assume 2nd from the top means #32.
Other Hit Bounds.
Wild Honey-Beach Boys. Didn't ever think that was a good followup to Heroes & Villians. I did like Ten Little Indians-Yardbirds. Different from their other songs. It's a Nilsson song, even though back in 1967, that didn't mean much to me..
Couple interesting most requested: By The Time I Get To Phoenix-Glen Campbell and Strange Days Album by The Doors. Quite a contrast.

KFXM Plane

Here's a closeup of the KFXM airplane

KFXM Tiger Mag Oct 27, 1967

Announcing KFXM is #1 Michael Nesmith with the KFXM guys.
How about that picture of the KFXM Tiger Stripped Plane! Anyone see it in person?

The Cowsills. What is a Cowsill? Perhaps an inspiration for a Partridge Family?
Marvin & Tammi-Your Precious Love #1
Big movers this week #2 Please Love Me Forever and #3 Try It. What a difference in the style of music.
Highest debut #22 You Better Sit Down Kids-Cher
Two Personal Picks I like Out Of The Blue-Tommy James & The Shondells and She Is Still A Mystery-Lovin' Spoonful

K/mentertainer October 21, 1967

The Light making the cover. The same picture featured in the newly released Light CD. Music Box is #2 this week on the survey. See below for article on the group. Article about The Who, with their song I Can See For Miles debuting this week at #29
KMEN events

#1 Incense & Peppermints-Strawberry Alarm Clock
Try It-Standells jumping up from #20 to #7.
Interesting this week two songs at #30 How Can I Be Sure-Young Rascals(encore)and Soul Man-Sam & Dave. Two songs you still hear on the radio today.
There's a song by The Looking Glass that's hitbound Virginia Day's Ragtime Memories. Is this the same Looking Glass from Brandy fame? It is on a different record label.
Nilsson has a heavy album on this week's survey,
Good selection of songs under MOST REQUESTED, even though Beg, Borrow & Steal-Ohio Express is just a hit bound sound.

KFXM Tiger Mag Oct 20, 1967

Car Fair-This is one of the shows put on before Route 66 Righteous Brothers picture.
Stone Poneys with Linda Ronstadt. EdGRrrrr SEZ article mentions Linda stopped by the KFXM studios to talk to Danny Dare. Danny, if you read this tell us about that day with Linda.

Marvin & Tammi #1 with Your Precious Love. Elvis up to #6 with Big Boss Man. Too bad it didn't do that well nationally, you could be hearing it once in a while on the radio.
A song I liked then, and I like now Beg Borrow & Steal-Ohio Express debuting. I've been told Joe Walsh was involved with the original group. Any Joe Walsh fans out there have any details?

A Personal Pick Hung-Racket Squad. Anyone ever hear that song?

K/men Articles

I'm a little behind in my scnning of Tiger Mags and K/mentertainers,but in the meantime, a few articles I had scanned from the K/mentertainer Dick Van Dyke as Kennedy? Dn't think it ever happened.
Early picture of Linda.
Monkees making movies.

The Hollies

Articles from 1967 Kmentertainers, read about one of my favorite groups, The Hollies and their lead singe Allan Clarke.
Always enjoyed their songs, Bus Stop, Stop Stop Stop, On A Carousel, Jennifer Eccles, Carrie Anne, Long Cool Woman, Long Dark Road, The Air That I Breathe and on and on. In the 70's most of their albums weren't even released in the US, but I managed to get imports. Graham Nash and Allan Clarke were the singers. Graham Nash went on to other things, but Allan Clarke made them great.
The Hollies (without Allan) even released an album earlier this year. It did need Allan Clarke.

KFXM Tiger Mag Oct 13, 1967 + bonus

Nancy Sinatra 1967 Lightning's Girl. Didn't do as well as These Boots Are Made For Walking, but the song had a similar attitude. If you look below the 1967 issue, you'll see one of my favorite Tiger Mag covers, the first Nancy Sinatra from March 1966. Article about Nancy and also one about the Association inside.
Curent Beatle news included.

I don't remember how I did it, but I must have won about a dozen of the Wink 6 packs. They were not 12 ounce bottles, but rather either 8 or 10 ounce, I really don't remember which.

#1 Incense & Peppermints-Strawberry Alarm Clock
Highest debut Try It-Standells at #31 and #40 this week Glen Campbell-By The Time I Get To Phoenix. I wonder if these two songs ever segued into each other on KFXM.
Personal Pick I really like Back On The Street Again-Sunshine Company. Glad The Blades Of Grass didn't cover that one.
Two old Donovan songs as a personal pick Hey Gyp/War Drags On
Third Nancy Sinatra song as another personal pick Lady Bird (with Lee Hazelwood)

Interesting that in both issues that Nancy is on the cover, both hits are dropping down the charts
A lotof good songs on the 1966 Top 40.
A couple of good personal picks on the 1966 issue My Little Red Book-Love and Love's Made A Fool Of You-Bobby Fuller Four

K/mentertainer October 7, 1967

Donovan Concert details, with pictures and an intereting article about the concert.
One of the readers mentioned the rock groups scheduled didn't perform, and the article mentions this, but it also mentions a group called The Midnight Strings opened up the show setting a "Mellow " atmoshere for Donovan's "recital". Be sure to click on the article to enlarge it, so it will be easier to read.

#1 Apples Peaches Pumpkin Pie-Jay & The Techniques
also Music Box-The Light moves up from #20 to #10 this week.
Hit Bounds I like this week Try It-Standells, Get On Up-Esquires, Lonliness Makes Me Realize It's You That I Need-Temptations.......and my favorite I Can See For Miles-The Who

KFXM Tiger Mag Oct 6, 1967

Bobby Vee article. His current hit is Come Back When You Grow Up Bits & Pieces has Rolling Stones news and Beatles news. Click on the picture to enlarge.
Picture of Charlie Walters with his article he had in Radio-TV Mirror publication. Anyone ever read/have a copy of the article?

#1 Never My Love-The Association
Music Box/Backup-Light up to #5
Who Could Be Lovin' You-Al Wilson first time in the top ten in the Inland Empire as a solo artist
Higest debut on the top 40 Big Boss Man/You Don't Know Me-Elvis Presley
#40 Debut Different Drum-Stone Poneys featuring Linda Ronstadt on vocals her first hit.

Personal Picks have some follow ups to first hits Hamburg-Procal Harum and Heigh Ho-Fifth Estate

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.

On K/MEN Hiptionary and Sinatra, too.

Articles in the K/mentertainer about the Now generation and Frank Sinatra. Generations away fom each other. But in 1967 Sinatra was still hip, along with The Electric Prunes. Afterall, they were on the same record label.
