It's Fun in the Hot Summer Sun with The Lovin' Spoonful and Two Lively Newcomers on the Next "Dave White Presents"!
"Summer in the City." "Do You Believe in Magic." " "Daydream." ""Six O'clock." "You Didn't Have to be so Nice." "Did You Ever have to Make Up Your Mind." "Younger Girl." "Nashville Cats."
From 1965 to 1970, The Lovin' Spoonful were a Good Time Music hit-making machine. The songs of John Sebastian, Zal Yanovsky, Steve Boone, and Joe Butler brought folk, jugband, country, and rock together in a new way that influenced other bands like The Grateful Dead. Did you know they scored the very first Woody Allen movie and played their own instruments in the studio?
On Tues. July 16, it's appropriate that drummer Joe Butler stops by the next DWP. That's because we wanted to hear the inside story of "Summer in the City" and because their first hit, "Do You Believe in Magic," debuted back in July 1965. We'll go back to those hot times as a very talkative Joe remembers how the Spoonful came together, what it was like to work with Woody Allen, the fun of running with fellow music makers like the Mamas and Papas, and how Joe became the band's frontman after John Sebastian left the group. They're still at it, and Joe will tell you about the Spoonful's current itinerary.
The members of Beach Day weren't born when the hits of The Lovin' Spoonful, Phil Spector, and The Ventures filled the charts, but their debut album, Trip Trap Attack, takes listeners back to those fun in the sun years! Natalie Smallish (bass), Skyler Black (drums), and singer/songwriter and guitarist Kimmy Drake have nailed down how to make bouncing, infectious melodies on songs like "Boys" and "Stay" that sound like Top 10 AM hits perfect for spending your day at the beach! On the next DWP, Kimmy Drake tells you why a trio of twentysomethings love that old-time music, and we'll play you two contagious samples!
Speaking of contagious, last year Dave White enjoyed his interview with perky actress Olivia Dunkley so much, he couldn't resist bringing her back for an encore! In 2012, Dunkley talked about her role as super-spy Sandra West on the web-based film series called The Adventures of Super 7. This time, she discusses her own music video, "Not OK You Left Me," which she both stars in and wrote. What's it all about? Well, you'll have to tune in to find out as DWP is once again "predictably unpredictable"!
