KAAY Question

This, from Bill in Las Vegas:

"Years ago, I found online somewhere, a bunch of playlists (not the mp3's, just a copy of the paper list) for Beaker Street. I think there were some from maybe 1966 and 1967. I cannot find them anymore. Have you seen them anywhere?

Las Vegas, NV"
I sent Bill a reply and I'll be looking into it; in the meantime, anyone know where these playlists might be?  I believe, if memory serves me correctly, that Beaker Street actually started in November 1967....

Beaker Street Tribute

Happy (belated) New Year, everyone!

Without further delay, here is some information from blog friend Doug Virden:

" A radio show paying tribute to Beaker Street is on for an hour every Friday night.  The show airs from 9-10pm on radio station KCCK 88.3 FM in Cedar Rapids, Iowa and hosted by John Helm.  The station is run by Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids and is a non commercial station funded by donations.  They specialize in Jazz music and have a blues program following the Beaker Street Hour.  If you are outside the area, you can go to the station's website at and hit the listen live button.
You can also listen through the tuneinradio app on your phone just search "kcck"."
Thanks, Doug!  Usually by that time, I am dead to the world, after a hard week; business is booming in my industry.  I suppose this is Central Time, as well.  I will have to make an effort to stay up and listen!
