Beaker Street – Between mid-March and mid-July 1972

Audio from The Internet Archive

Blogger’s Note: This audio comes to us courtesy of the Mark Arouh collection which was digitized by L.M. Moore and tweeted by Kenneth Hawkins.

The date is unknown but there are a few hints in the audio that could prove helpful.

First, the use of Head’s “Cannabis Sativa” as Clyde’s background music places the airdate between 1970 (the release of Head’s album) and 1972 (when Clyde left KAAY).

Second,and more specifically, Clyde talks about the departure of DJ Phil North from ranks of the Mighty 1090. While I do not have an exact date, I did run into this Phil North audiofile on Mixcloud dated 3-15-72 so it would be some time after that if the mixcloud post is correct on the date.

Third- the Beaver Productions commercial for a July 19th concert by the Allman Brothers Band at A Warehouse in New Orleans means that this show aired between mid-March and mid-July 1972.

If anyone has any information on when Phil North left KAAY, feel free to let me know in the comments or via email at
