Usual times 7PM UK, NY & LA
September 20 – Getting better by the second! Ok, we now have a live playlist on the website, which shows the currently playing track – highlighted, with the last 10 listed. It provides links to Amazon for every track should you wish to go grab it, also a link for artist information, not that we don’t have pages on most artists on the site already in more detail(!), and also adds the ability to ‘rate’ tracks, so we can get feedback on those that are loved and loathed and can make note of things to bring up for discussion here.
New stream, new functions, we enjoy spoiling you! Next up will be the new fab skin for the website and Facebook page, but this is a pretty good start huh!
So, 1600… The Dutch were waging the 80 year war against the Spanish, Scotland adopted January 1st as new years day, the Falkland Islands were first sighted, the East India Company were given royal charter almost signalling the beginning of the British Empire and Shakespeare was debuting A Midsomer Night’s Dream and publishing Merchant of Venice…. Oh, not that 1600?! 1600 page likes, why didn’t you say?!? And only a week after getting to 1500! A Shakespearean welcome to one and all!
This week on the Psyche Power Hour, Whitebread presents “The Super, Sexy, Psycherotic Show,” A tantalizing mix of 60’s (with maybe a toe in the 50’s and 70’s) tracks and assorted curio’s from the erotic archives that’s guaranteed to have you heading to the (cold) shower! Adults Only 😉 7PM UK, NY, LA

Live Psyche Out! This Saturday Night!
There is a band that Rob & I love, a real San Francisco band with the San Fran sound, a band that hardly anyone knows or remembers and I only sought out after seeing their name on a few posters from the era, lower billed of course, the one and only Final Solution! Now, let’s talk about their name, Alec Palao explains: They’d christened themselves the Final Solution, derived from the the cryptic but meaningless epithet “There Is No Final Solution.” With their solidly middle-class backgrounds, none of the group had any idea of the slogan’s implications. “We knew vaguely somewhere back in history it was heavy,” (explains lead guitarist Fosselius). “I’m embarassed to admit I didn’t realise how much the name could mean to a Jew, especially one (like Bill Graham) with direct experience of the concentration camps. I have so much respect for him in retrospect, how cool he was about it. He’d just say ‘Oh, that’s your name, huh?’”. So, the name was misplaced, but their music wasn’t, not that much of it made it to tape, just some rehearsals and a live recording of the band at the Matrix, one of only 50 or so shows the band ever did, and that’s the show you can hear right here on Psychedelicized Radio this Saturday night, so you can get to know and indulge in the meandering minor-key world of the Final Solution. Enjoy! ~ Christy

Rob, Colin, Whitebread, Rusty, Michael & Adam take a bow, they all do sterling work behind the scenes, finding content, adding webpages, keeping the site running, designing posters, promos, radio show production etc. It’s been a great 18 months, as we’ve grown in to a tight fellowship of like-minded psyche heads, I salute them and I salute you guys! ~ Christy
— with 1500.
This week on the Psyche Power Hour, Rob presents “Primitive – The Missing Link,” a listen-back at the early development of psychedelic music (1965-1967). Join us as he spins the sounds of a genre “mysteriously” evolving from raw garage and mod R&B into full-blown psychedelic rock and progressive rock. We’re sure you’ll enjoy the strong drum beats, loud and frenzied guitar riffs, fuzztone, flanging, distortion, compression and phasing characteristic of music sometimes referred to as Freakbeat in the UK or Garage Psychedelic in the US. Be there or be square, man! 7PM UK, NY, LA
