Huh? / Re: Paul Revere (Paul Revere and the Raiders) dead at 76

One of the finest guitar riffs ever recorded is the intro to "Kicks". I always loved that song.

Sorry Al. I'll try real hard to behave, but when I quit drinking in 2004 I thought those voices would go away.

Huh? / Paul Revere (Paul Revere and the Raiders) dead at 76
« on: October 06, 2014, 0239 UTC »
Paul Revere, leader of the 1960s rock band Paul Revere and the Raiders, died Saturday at his home in Idaho, the band's website reported. He was 76.

Revere -- whose birth name was Paul Revere Dick, according to a biography on the Internet Movie Database -- was frontman for the band that often performed in three-cornered hats and other clothing harking back to the American Revolution.

Revere was born in Nebraska and played in bands in Idaho and Oregon, according to a tribute on the band website written by Roger Hart, who managed the group in the early days. Hart said he took the band to Hollywood and signed them to a deal with CBS/Columbia Records.

The band recorded a string of hits in the 1960s and early 1970s, including "Kicks," "Hungry" and "Indian Reservation." Revere, the band's organist, had a hyperactive effervescent stage personality and came to be known as "the madman of rock 'n' roll."

In a tribute on the band's website, a fan remembered seeing the band for the first time.

"My dad took me to a Paul Revere and the Raiders concert in Buffalo NY in April of 1967," she wrote. "I think other than the male acts he was the ONLY man there. He said he was deaf for a week afterward, but he admitted he'd enjoyed the show and the Raiders. The Raiders were always fun and in good taste, parents didn't have to worry."

The band's fame grew as the Raiders appeared on "Dick Clark's American Bandstand," "Where the Action Is," the "Ed Sullivan Show," the "Tonight Show with Johnny Carson" and even the "Batman" television show, Hart wrote.

Revere recognized his debt to Clark. In a CNN.com story, Revere wrote about seeing his mentor six weeks before Clark's death in 2012.

"I gave him a hug and told him everything I have and everything I am I owe to him," Revere wrote.

The band became a fixture on the oldies circuit in later years and had a tour scheduled to start in November.

Revere's cause of death was not disclosed, but Hart said Revere died "peacefully."

Besides Revere, the original Raiders included Mark Lindsay, Phil Volk, Drake Levin and Mike Smith, the website said. Levin and Smith have died.

I don't know too much about this, but the website has all kinds of cool prop info. I like it better than NOAA

The mention of Denmark that you heard slowtrain, was the LHH DJ acknowledging an email from a listener in Denmark! Also mentioned was that Laser Hot Hits was going to be carried live on Magic Int'l on Sundays. Not sure what time though, but I'm looking forward to this! :)

I'm not taking notes like last night, but I could't help myself when I heard LHH op give Steve Olson a shoutout at 2350 UTC! This is a rebroadcast of LHH's live program last night, so you were acknowledged then live. The LHH DJ read some of your comments Oly1959! ;D
Another great night for propagation from Europe...nice S7 signal with a little bit of fading

Nonstop tunes from 2235 UTC including tunes by Don McClean, Doobie Brothers, Eagle, Steely Dan, Gerry Rafferty. Only ID heard was at 2320 UTC. Nice S5-S7 signal with fading almost at level with Magic Int'l on 6205
2330 UTC Carole King, then Boz Scaggs
0003 UTC OFF
Thanks for the test Radio Nova! Hope to hear you again soon :)

The outskirts of the 49 meter band is opening up now to the east coast of North America and first up for the evening is Laser Hot Hits being relayed by Radio Magic Int'l at 2145 UTC tune in with signal fading in and out of the noise floor . I received a very nice email from the team at Magic and they said that they would be on 6205 this evening because some other free radio stations would be using 6200 today. They plan on continuing relays of Laser Hot Hits in addition to their own programming, as well as possible relays of other European operators in the near future. Details are forthcoming and a LOT OF WORK is going into making all this happen. A website is in the works, the technicals are being worked on, with a possible station name change. Reception reports are going to be most welcome, but it will be a couple of weeks before everything is in place, so listeners are asked to be patient for a little bit longer :) The Magic team is definitely NOT trying to be elusive...it takes a lot of hard work to get this thing going and the station plans on being very interactive with the listeners. The Magic team has made it quite clear that the listeners are very much appreciated and that they need a bit of time so as not to get overwhelmed...reception reports will be verified with eQSL's in the next few weeks, so hang onto your hat and give the Magic team a chance to finish up the details. A formal announcement from the Magic team will be forthcoming shortly! :)
2200 UTC Signal is up to S3 now and if conditions are like last night, reception should be really great tonight!

One last check before I hit the sack and Laser "live" is S8 here at 0220 UTC :)

Black Arrow here with S7 peaks and superb audio at 1345 UTC.  Music booming in, and great copy on announcements between fades. Close down after Small Faces tune at 1358 UTC. Very happy to finally get a solid logging! Thanks Mr BA!!! :)

Also heard here at 0222 UTC with the same details as others have posted
Damn....Captain Morgan one minute and Captain Trips the next..... :o

S7 and well above the noise here at 0058 UTC with Beethoven, into electric blues tune at 0059 UTC. Very nice audio!
Pirate zone standard time ;D 0107 UTC "This is Captain Morgan shortwave", into some more electric blues
0130 UTC A very impressive run of ID's and jingles! A little Jimi Hendrix too....
0136 UTC OFF
( Super show tonight Captain! Mucho appreciated :) )

Tuned in at 2254 UTC to 6235 LSB and I'm getting threshold audio. I can make out music, but darned if I can tell what's playing! There was nothing here earlier on 6226 LSB.
2303 UTC "Just The Way You Are"-Billy Joel ;D
(I'm getting nothing since 2313 UTC)

It's 2141 UTC and the 49 meter band is starting to open up for Europe. I'm hearing 6200 KHZ fading in and out of the noise floor with music.
2200 UTC Signal up to S5 here with great audio...some fading.
2220 UTC Solid S7 now with fairly good copy on announcements. Wish I was more up to date on the European popular music scene :-[
(The Laser Hot Hits announcer talks really fast :D Lots of shoutouts between songs to listeners! Also IDing as Laser Hot Hits INTERNATIONAL :)
2235 UTC "Love Train"-O'Jays
2238 UTC "Boys of Summer"-Don Henley
(There, that's 2 songs in a row this old timer ID'd)
2340 UTC Just checked back in and signal seems to have dropped a bit into the noise with more fading than before, but still quite listenable at S5 peaks
2347 UTC "My Sharona"-The Knack
2352 UTC "Why Can't We Be Friends"-War
0028 UTC "Losing My Religion"-REM
0211 UTC Signal is amazing right now! Solid S9 with 100% copy of LHH DJ's talk! Song at 0213 UTC is like a local now. NICE!
(A quick check of the NOAA prop conditions show that the sun has quieted down rather nicely!)
Time to hit the sack....thanks for the LHH relay today RMI!!! It is appreciated :)

At threshold here when op switched frequencies. Still better than 15880 USB here, but too weak to ID music.

Twice in one day here! Tuned in at 1604 UTC with "This is Sluwe Vos Radio" into "Girls Just Want to Have Fun"-Cyndi Lauper, followed UNID Pop/Dance tune.
1613 UTC ID, then "Twilight Zone"-Golden Earring
1223 UTC ID, jingle, then "Nights In White Satin"-Moody Blues

Thanks Hans! I listened back on the tape and I think you closed down at 1335 UTC while I was posting my logging! Oh well, maybe some day I'll hear you again ;)
