Planet Earth Rock and Roll Radio is back. Based on the
legendary Planet Earth Rock and Roll Orchestra, a Band of
Bands on the island of San Francisco, CA, (an island by the
fact that it is completely surrounded by reality). In the
time warp between the late sixties and early seventies
members of the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, CSNY,
Quicksilver Messenger Service and others collaborated and
created some of the greatest (and now classic) rock music of
the spirit of Planet Earth Rock and Roll Orchestra we bring
you Planet Earth Rock and Roll Radio.
Planet Earth Rock and
Roll Radio is a collection of links to music and
audio/visual media that will both inform and entertain you.
Our format has a tendency to lean more towards Jeff
Beck than Glenn Beck (Even my Communist friends tell me to
lean a little closer to the center-rick ).
We hope that you will
come here often. This is a great place to use as your
Internet Radio, our links to sources is growing everyday.
Here you can get your news from NPR, Democracy Now and other
wire services. We are also linking to Last.fm for a
fantastic music show featuring Jefferson Airplane/Jefferson
Starship and many more psychedelic bands (I heard some
Hawkwind, cool! - rick)
In the very near future
we will have daily broadcasts originating from this
site. We have some great stuff for you to listen to in our
archives. The Dead Hour's David Gans interview with Paul
Kantner is here for your enjoyment (totally uncensored - as
it should be) and a performance by Jefferson Quick Dead shot
on a single camera but still fun to watch or dance to. More
Drop in Turn on
Rock out - Planet Earth Rock n Roll
want you to take control of the Ships Radio. How? Easy, just
drop us a line (well, an e-mail really) and we will connect
to your Podcast, Radio Station or other Broadcast Site.
Of course you will have to
pass our stringent Acceptable Practices and
Program requirements. We just don't know what they are!
What we are looking for is
info about the Planet, Electronics, Politics and general
trouble making. For music we are mostly psychedelic, but a
little classical, jazz, rock or folk is just hunky dory.
Are you creative? Have a
favorite Band that Broadcasts via the web? Got a cool Radio
Station? We will consider just about anythin' to be included
on our Broadcast Page.
We certainly do not hide the
fact that this site contains mostly progressive political
news - comments. If you really need to listen to
Conservative opinion exclusively - you are on the wrong
planet - get in your car and scream at your AM Radio. You
may be a Progressive Conservative - hey welcome aboard - we
all need another opinion. We are ALL on this Planet Together
- Every Hand, Every Heart will make this a groovy place to
Like IN DA GADDA OF EDEN
Do you have a little spare
change - I guess change doesn't come in spares. The times
are a changing but our bills still come monthly. If you
can spare a dollar or two to keep us flying, we will
send you a link to some great downloads (including one to
the poster up there).
can also help out by getting a copy of Paul Kantner's 1982
CD Planet Earth Rock and Roll Orchestra from:
