I'm a child of the late sixties and all of the seventies, I'm pushing 67. Did any of you listen late at night to Beaker Street with Clyde Clifford out of Little Rock? It was considered to be "THE" best AM underground hard rock station that there was. It made a lasting impression on me, so much so, that my license plates on my '50 3100 reads BEKRSTR. I have a Beaker Street t-shirt signed by Clyde himself. If you are unable to relate to this, you won't understand...I'm sorry for you!

Rocket man, as one who's currently enjoying my 68th trip around the sun we likely share many of the same memories. I grew up and still live about 50'ish miles south of Little Rock in the woods off a gravel road and spent many nights listing to Beaker Street. That along with WLS out of Chicago was a country boy's link to his generation's music.

ps, don't be surprised to see this thread moved to the Spoon.

The border megawatt stations come to mind. Wolfman Jack was a favorite. Listened to WLS many nights when the skip was rolling good. A more innocent time that I do miss.

K A A Y little rock, We used to get it down here in New Orleans on a clear night. Seem to think Beaker Street came on after 9 o'clock, late night listening.

Cousin Brucie on WABC (NYC), and, sometimes WBZ (Boston, MA). The strongest radio signals we could get at night in central VA (pre-psychedelic 1960s).

Hey look! It's a ...
Sorry, but this subject line first had me thinking 221B Baker Street... But WBZ ... grew up with that station late nights (only time you could pull it in up the Northern New England). And the Bluegrass. Started me thinking about my own start in broadcasting .. hosting the 10 pm to 2 am Saturday/Sunday slot with a Bluegrass show on WWEB, 89.9 FM (Wallingford, CT) back in the '78/'79. That was before computer programmed shows -- we actually had to set up the LP tracks on turn tables and cue everything manually in analog while talking. Still love to do my broadcast "patter." All the while keeping an eye on the clock to be able to fade to the UPI news feed at the top and bottom of every hour ... and watch the transmitter output ... and just be entertaining and knowledge able for each track. It was a lot of fun. I miss working in radio (yes, yes, I've been told many times that I have a great face for radio. It was funny the first 250 times ...)

For the late '70's and earl;y '80's, we had a decent audience for Bluegrass in New England. Still do, I think. Maritime and Celtic are related genres and are huge in the Northern coastal states, so it's probably not surprising.
