Stuck In The Psychedelic Era

Stuck in the Psychedelic Era is a weekly two hour radio show featuring music from roughly the years 1964-70. The show is rooted in the music generated by self-contained American bands of the late 1960s (and their British inspirations), yet is constantly expanding beyond those roots to create an eclectic blend of music unlike anything else in modern radio.

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.

Invoking the original underground radio format of the late 1960s the style is clean and direct, with no jingles, stingers or pre-recorded promos to clutter up the mix. 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.

Stuck in the Psychedelic Era airs during select Kansas City Royals games on our internet stream here at KQNK, or at 7 p.m. Sundays on KQNK.com.


ROCKIN’ IN THE DAYS OF CONFUSION

Sunday Nights 9:00-10:00 PM on KQNK.com

Rockin’ in the Days of Confusion is a weekly 60-minute show that revisits the golden age of progressive rock radio (roughly the years 1968-76). Emphasis is on longer album tracks covering a variety of rock sub-genres, including hard rock, folk-rock, heavy metal, jazz-rock fusion, art-rock and more experimental tracks that defy easy classification. As is the case with our sister show, Stuck in the Psychedelic Era, Rockin’ in the Days of Confusion has no pre-recorded jingles or liners. Commentary is centered on the music itself, with additional track information available at thehermitrambles.blogspot.com (or by hitting the blog button at hermitradio.com).
