Stuck in the Psychedelic Era
Genre: Classic Rock, underground rock
Stuck in the Psychedelic Era is a weekly two hour radio show featuring music from roughly the years 1964-69. The show is literally a throwback to the days of “underground” radio. There are no pre-recorded jingles or promotional spots; just two hours of music, punctuated by occasional commentary by the Hermit, whose own radio career began on a small closed-circuit station in the early 70s.
Much of the music is taken directly from vintage vinyl, scratches and all. The rest comes from Compact Disc compilations and re-issues of original albums, all taken from the Hermit’s personal collection.
Commentary is centered on the music itself: artist histories, contextual information, anecdotes, personal memories and occasional forays into how the music of the psychedelic era relates to today’s world.
