British Invasion or Soul? Although the British group's cover of Buddy Holly's "I'm Gonna Love You Too" reached number 56 on the American charts, the group had trouble establishing a strong identity in the presence of more popular British acts like The Searchers. The Hullabaloos performed on TV's "Hullabaloo" show several times but their brief brush with fame flickered out by the end of Manfred Mann talked to the KRLA Beat about the resurgence of soul music in the pop charts, noting that "today's teenagers are a lot more hip than they were five years ago.
The nice thing about reprinting photos from earlier Beats is that we often get more detailed captions! Finally the Beat tells us who deejay Bobby Dale was talking to: To our delight, starting with this week's Beat, the editorial crew finally added a publication date to the masthead. All issues from this point forward are easy to place in historical context. KRLA looks for the roots of rock It was an ambitious project.
Most of the basic musical contributors were covered, though Buddy Holly seems a conspicuous omission -- surely there was archival footage afloat -- and the influence of Motown seems to have been under-represented.
But it was a start.Bobby O Jay 35th Anniversary
KRLA had a long-term interest in the history of rock and pop music. For the July 31, issue the KRLA Beat presented an article by singer Jerry Naylor, then touring with The Crickets, which mapped out the growth of rock and roll, complete with a handy chart showing its rhythm-n-blues and country-western ancestry.
And from to KRLA's newsman John Gilliland researched and interviewed musicians for the "Pop Chronicles" radio documentary, which explored the development of popular music from the s through the s. Broadcast inthe documentary ended up being 55 hours long. Gilliland's work was considered to be so ground-breaking that the original interview tapes are part of the John Gilliland Collection at the University of North Texas library.
In the photo gallery this week The Hullabaloos are featured, visiting the station and getting acquainted with Dave Hull's fan club.
If you look carefully you'll see some details of the KRLA studios as they looked in the mids. It's no real surprise that the Beatles came out on top, followed by the Rolling Stones and the Beach Boys. This was the second hootenanny organized by KRLA. If the Beatles hadn't been so hard at work redrawing the map of rock-and-roll's future, there might have been many more "hoots" to come.
A number of folk musicians would quickly find their niche in the pop charts, but the hootenanny was on its way out. Will they or won't they? This week's Beat published an alarming report about the suspension of H-1 visas, which would prevent most if not all non-American entertainers from performing the United States. Meanwhile American pop stars like the Righteous Brothers, Chuck Berry, and Del Shannon had no trouble obtaining travel documents to perform in England.
The Beat included a second article on the topic on page three. This one sounded a lot more positive, citing "last minute flashes" that suggested the travel ban would be short-lived. Considering the number of British groups queued up for American concerts, that must have been a relief to readers at the time.
Several forthcoming editions of the KRLA Beat mention the story as a continuing annoyance to British Invasion groups who hoped to entertain American fans. The idea of a KRLA deejay with his own nightclub wasn't new. Check out the groovy Rebel Room! Kramer and the Dakotas, Roger Miller, "Shindig! It also presented spots on "surfers and surfing" and had a crowd of dancing teenagers ready to demonstrate the latest dance steps. The brief biography of Eubanks beginning on page 1 and continuing on page 4 offers a new nugget of information worth noting, if you're a Beatles fan.
Ex-Beatles associate Derek Taylor, who had recently stepped down from his role as press agent and assistant to Beatles' manager Brian Epstein, had been scooped up by Bob Eubanks' talent agency. This would lead to a flowering of interdependencies: If you're of a musical mind, check out the page 4 article by Dick Moreland on the Beatles' instrumentation. Most folks weren't paying attention to gear and model numbers at this point.
Both Cashbox and Billboard picked it as a "best bet", but it didn't see too much chart action. Dave's column refers to another article about it in the Beat but it must have been pulled for reasons of space. There was a lot of other news in this issue, that's for sure. It's not clear whether the editor of this version, Bonnie Golden, was aware that another project was in the works. In fact, Bonnie went on to a career in news and sports journalism under the name of Wina Sturgeon.
Still four pages long, it was now printed on newspaper stock, had professional writers and photographers, and raised its price to ten cents The biggest news was the hiring of the former Beatles press officer and assistant to Brian Epstein.
For the Beat he offered an insider's connection to the Beatles that no other radio station publication could match. And as he'd later prove, Derek also had an uncanny ability to spot new pop music trends such as the Byrds, a trait that rarely failed him. This week's Beat revealed a couple of new hires at the station: Thanks once more to Jim in Studio City for this historic issue. Derek also annouced the arrival of a new band from Portland, Oregon, Paul Revere and the Raiders, whose goal was to trounce "the British dominance on the disc scene".
According to the Beat they chose the music and read all the announcements themselves Thanks again to Jim from Studio City for this issue. If Hull can be believed, even tourists could visit the set and take photos of the fab foursome. Taylor was a bit perplexed by Peter Evans, a prominent British entertainment journalist, who met the Beatles and called them "rude and arrogant". To be fair, Derek had once been an insider, so he might have enjoyed a more friendly reception than your average reporter.
Who Fell Into My Porridge? It was later to be called "Help!
Derek Taylor is now on board as a correspondent, and it really helps. The Beat also lists new staff members. About half the newspaper at this point is still about radio station promotion, but there are a couple otherwise-unknown photos of the Beatles, plus an interview with John in their London recording studio later more familiarly Abbey Road Studios.
Music notes from all over are discussed in the "At Deadeline" column, where someone has yet to learn that "Kay Davis" was not a member of The Kinks Ray Davies, on the other hand The column also reports on the Rolling Stones, P. The somewhat awkward title, "Eight Arms To Hold You", didn't survive for long, though some early pressings of the "Ticket To Ride" single carried this earlier name on its label. Hull had interviewed Ringo Starr during his recent trip to Nassau with Derek Taylor, and the results are printed here.
In this issue and several more from March to be posted in the next few days you'll notice photos by the late Curt Gunther, taken during his time with the band in For those interested in more of his Beatles photography, Genesis Publications has just released a new collection, "The Beatles: Mania Days -- photographs by Curt Gunther". Many thanks to Jim from Studio City for allowing us to scan this issue.
For you George fans The second part of a four-part interview with each of the Beatles is featured in this week's issue.
George talked a bit about the filming of their second movie, the plot of which was still a bit of a mystery to him: John explains it all for you In this early four-page issue Derek Taylor points out the difficulty of determining accurate chart position for any hit record.
In England two of the top pop newspapers, New Musical Express and Melody Maker, might show a single at two different positions in the same week. But the same situation existed in American publications like Billboard and Cash Box. Dave helpfully explined to John why the title of his second book "A Spaniard In The Works" was a clever British pun but not so easily understood in an American context.
They must have come from the Beatles' BBC radio show not fromnot pre-Epstein, as she claimed, but from Someone must have had good connections to get copies for the KRLA listening audience. The better value, Paul pointed out, was the British release, which usually had more songs. Paul was a little more flinty with deejay Dave Hull, who had given out private home addresses of Beatles family members on the air Several years later Sounds Incorporated provided the brass accompaniment to the Beatles' "Sgt.
Pepper" track "Good Morning, Good Morning". Thanks again to Jim from Studio City for this terrific early Beat. Herman's Hermits taking over? When Derek Taylor thought highly of a performer, he wasn't one to hold back. He stopped short of suggesting that Herman might surpass the Beatles, reminding us that the Fabs "are really above competition now -- part of the folklore and legend of show business.
Derek Taylor fans, take note! Several of his articles are featured in this issue. He discusses the Byrds, the Beatles, the charts, as well as an in-studio view of how the Beatles and George Martin record a little throwaway called "I Feel Fine". Beatles historians may enjoy an early plot synopsis for their still-unnamed second movie, where it's mentioned that the opening song will be written by Paul.
Phil Spector also gets a positive review. This eight-page issue announced the Beatles' return to Los Angeles. There's a nice photo on the front page of deejays Bob Eubanks and Dave Hull, with Derek, at the Bowl scoping out the situation. KRLA was already accepting applications for tickets more than three months before the concert. Immigration problems bedeviled British acts wishing to come to the States to perform on TV or in concert and the U. Immigration Department wasn't making it any easier for groups or their managers to navigate their restrictions.
As the Beat notes, British immigration authorities had begun retaliating by refusing to allow American musicians to come to the U.
Also in this issue: On page 8 at the end of Derek's column, don't miss his close encounter with Larry "Wild Man" Fisher, who years later achieved some notoriety on Rhino Records. Immigration blues In this eight-page issue the immigration bottleneck continued to be a major source of bedevilment to pop music promoters. Derek Taylor revealed that restrictions were so unreasonable that few British performers could make it to the U.
This issue also covers the debut of Dino, Desi, and Billy, offers an interview with the Rolling Stones, and explores why groupies behave the way they do. On page 5 readers could order their Beatles concert tickets, priced between three to seven dollars Striking a pose The Beatles' photo that graces this issue's masthead appears to be from photographer Robert Whitaker's first session with the group, conducted in late at Farringdon Studio in London.
Whitaker was later involved in the series of photographs that resulted in a rather notorious album cover for a certain Beatles album in Their attitude was understandable -- they were there to sing their own hit, "Mr.
Tambourine Man", after all. The Beat also interviewed Petula Clark, Ian Whitcomb, and offered some behind-the-scenes photos of the Beatles filming snow scenes in Austria for their upcoming movie. This early issue, for those keeping score, is one of two designated Volume 1 Number 13; the other is the following issue dated June 2.
To be accurate this issue should be Volume 1 Number 12, if you want to get technical about it. Rocking and rolling In June Ian Whitcomb's musical career was just beginning.
There was plenty of Beatles news as well, including an interview with Walter Shenson about filming "Help!
“No copyright infringement intended”
Review of Rolling Stones concert, Beatles filming of "Help! Another world-wide first American Beatles albums were different from the standard British LPs, hence the existence of "Beatles VI", a new release in June with a unique song lineup. The album was premiered on Dick Biondi's evening show, the first airplay, claimed the Beat, anywhere in the USA, and in advance of its official June 14 release.
Derek Taylor's first experience seeing a Beatles concert in June was electrifying, he reported in an article on page 2, though it's hard to believe he'd never heard of Roy Orbison, one of the opening acts.
Other groups covered in this issue include The Zombies, Freddie and the Dreamers at work on their first and only movie, and a long interview with The Byrds. Beatles and Stones in the news The Beat's two favorite groups, the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, are the focus of this issue's coverage. Derek Taylor continued his recollections of his earliest involvement with the Beatles, picking up the story just after his first experience seeing them in concert in mid Proby, who was a bigger hit in England than he was at home.
Proby, born James Marcus Smith in Houston, had been on the scene since as Jett Powers and by began reinventing his image. He'd appeared on the British Beatles' special "Around The Beatles" but American chart action eluded him untilwhen "Nickey Hokey" became his only top-thirty hit.
He still tours occasionally in the U.

Proby quit "Shindig" or was he fired? Proby said he'd been promised a starring gig on the show and producer Jack Good failed to make it happen, so Proby walked out. Good, who insisted he appreciated Proby's talents, said that Proby was simply unmanageable.
The situation came about during Good's last week producing "Shindig" -- he was on his way back to England to develop other TV specials. Saturday, September 21, 8 p. Shanice Wilson, who goes by her first name, is a former child star turned success story. She is currently working on a new CD and other notable projects, which she discussed during our interview.
Shanice is married to actor Flex Alexander, and they have two children together. It was fun to be on stage with Narada.
We still stay in touch. As a matter of fact, I spoke with him yesterday and we are talking about doing more music together. You have such a beautiful and powerful voice! I am taking everyone back, from the beginning of my career to the present. On that note, what was it like making the transition from teen sensation to grown up artist?
I think, for a minute, that transition for the public was hard, but for me it was easy. I signed my first record deal when I was I think that as I started growing up, people still wanted to me to be that bubbly, smiling little girl laughs. What was it like to work with Michael? Wanda Hutchinson, from the female vocal group the Emotions, picked us up from the Greyhound bus station.
I wanna meet Michael Jackson! He had recorded the song years ago, and they just added my voice. It was an honor, but it was difficult. I cried for a minute. I had to stop for a second and get my tears out, and then I was able to sing. It was so hard. We were sitting next to one of the chefs who used to work with Michael.
Everyone—the whole aisle was just crying.
