Timmons Brothers Thank All who Attended the British Invasion and America’s Response Presentation
Authorities on music history (the Timmons Brothers) thank all who came to the presentation on October 12, 2013, and many who brought items from their homes of rock memorabilia. Also, thank you to Steve Chambers, the Director of the Mt. Sterling Museum in Mt. Sterling, Ohio for coming up with the creative idea to have a 1960s rock ‘n’ roll exhibit.
Timmons Brothers in the News Updates
David is currently serving his second year on city council and continuing his research on the origin and the early years of Led Zeppelin. John will be serving on a panel at a University campus in the upcoming fall season. The topic will be “Americans and their British Obsessions.” He will be discussing the success of British rock’n’roll in the United States. More details to come. He is also currently teaching an Honors Symposium on the 1960s Popular Music and Culture for the fall term. In the class, a range of topics from folk music to surf music to the British Invasion to the Summer of Love and Woodstock will be explored. Of course, a huge dose of The Beatles will certainly be included.
The Timmons Brothers were also the special guests on Fayette Focus, as they discussed their debut presentation, “Hollywood and Rock ‘n’ Roll: Through the Lens of Cinema”. Fayette Focus can be heard by accessing http://www.wchoam.com/main.html anywhere and anytime via podcast.
Recently, our show was selected in the Columbus Dispatch in Ohio in the “Weekender” of Thursday, June 27 for one of the top five things to do over the weekend. Here on the attachment below is a scan from the newspaper. Kenny Chesney was the top on the cover, but we were one of the “hidden gems”. It is quite a thrill to receive such recognition and reach so many new people to see one of our shows for the first time.
Here is this excellent article from the Madison Press of July 11 and The Tribune of July 9. The Timmons Brothers both think this article captures the ambience and atmosphere of one of their “Rock n Roll Trivia Shows” in a creative and humorous, which signifies the core of the show – informative yet entertaining. We certainly want to acknowledge the writer of the article (Fran Odyniec -former editor of The Madison Press).
Timmons Brothers Next Radio Show
Timmons Brothers – “A Review of The Byrds”
Air date: Sunday, November 17 at 06:00 PM
“A Review of The Byrds: Folk Rockers and Innovators”
The pioneers of folk rock and country rock, the Byrds combined harmony, an electric 12 string guitar, and thought provoking lyrics. They were influenced by The Beatles, but they also fascinated The Beatles. The Timmons Brothers review the legacy of a band from the original five of McGuinn, Crosby, Hillmam, Gene Clark and Michael Clarke (who were inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame in 1991) to several shifts of changing personnel. Through the changes, they continued to be innovators with their sound. A rare combination of combining commercial success with Top Forty singles while extending rock into new underground areas, the story of the Byrds is as interesting as their freshness in their music to this day.
