Paul Revere and the Raiders: An American Musical Revolution – Part 1

Original airdate: April 25, 2015


Labeled by Paul Shaffer of The David Letterman Show as “the greatest show band of all time,” Paul Revere and the Raiders became the vanguard of America’s response to the British Invasion with one of the most exciting live shows in the business. Their hits are now seen as bold, unpretentious pieces of ’60s rock & roll with a defiant, punk edge, which would become the foundation for the development of punk rock. Although they experienced disappointment when they saw another version of “Louie, Louie” become a national hit, they bounced back to sell records in numbers second only to the Beatles and the Rolling Stones during their three biggest years (1966-1969) while garnering more TV appearances than any other rock ‘n’ roll band from 1965- 1968. Tonight, in Part I, we focus on the years when a band with a Northwest U.S.A. origin grew so highly in popularity that each member’s charm and fame would rival the Beatles with their own fan clubs and constant appearances in every teen magazine. “Paul Revere and the Raiders: An American Musical Revolution – Part 1 (1961-1967 ‘The Classic Years’)”

Paul Revere and the Raiders: An American Musical Revolution – Part II

Original airdate: July 11, 2015


After their appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1967, three of the classic Raiders form their own band, which leaves Paul Revere and Mark Lindsay to find new members. With the nucleus of a new band with southern roots, they soon have their own TV shows (Happening ’68 and It’s Happening). The shows air on ABC six days a week as life becomes a blur of TV appearances, new recordings, and concert tours. With new members demonstrating savvy studio recording techniques, the Raiders music and appearance evolve in a rapidly changing period of pop culture from the late 60s into the early 70s. The Timmons Brothers unveil how the latter years of The Raiders reflect a microcosm of a quickly transforming landscape in the music industry from 1967 to 1972. “Paul Revere and the Raiders: An American Musical Revolution – Part II (1967-1972 ‘The Happening Years and Beyond’)”

The Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame – An Overview of Who is Not In and Possibly Why”

Original airdate: October 31, 2015


With the release of the next Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Nominees, the Timmons Brothers reveal a list of names that could be labeled a Who’s Who in Rock ‘n’ Roll and all the artists share a common bond of not being inducted into its Hall of Fame. Although the number of artists not inducted is too numerous to give them their due in one show, the two rock historians (David and John) will explore voting patterns, possible biases (and some may be surprising), the philosophy of defining a Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame, and other music related hall of fames. The artists being ignored span four decades and include Paul Anka, Connie Francis, the Moody Blues, Paul Revere and the Raiders, Chicago, Grand Funk Railroad , Jethro Tull, ELO, Kool and the Gang, and you are encouraged to call in with others. While the topic stirs debate, this program will be a catalyst to continue the discussion. “The Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame – An Overview of Who is Not In and Possibly Why”
