Issue #187 - Boss Jock Humble Harve with Bob Hite of Canned Heat.
Donovan's "To Susan on the West Coast Waiting" is a sweet anti-Vietnam War song, but what's interesting here is that it charted just OK on both KHJ and nationally (No. 35), but a few months later, the flip side, "Atlantis," caught on nationally and went to No. 7. But KHJ never played it.
My wife and daughter are big Donovan fans.I got briefly unpopular last week when "Atlantis" played on the CD player in the car and I opined that Donovan might have been unduly influenced by the "Hey Jude" chorus (on which I believe he sang) and pulled something of a scam in creating a four-minute record with only 12 words actually sung (over and over).
