1/9/20 - Season of the Witch - Donovan

HarpFac: I'm not sure why TK says he "thinks" Mike Bloomfield made a version of this song when he mentions it every time they play this for OGR on Halloween. The new tidbit that is made is that Jimmy Page plays on this song. TK doesn't like Led Zepplin.

2/3/20 - Well Respected Man - The Kinks

HarpFac: At first I though of Junior and how he was a regular guest on this show, and how TK and Junior had a wonderful love/hate back and forth that made every interview a walk on the tightrope. Then I remember that Junior's song was Dedicated follower of fashion and in this version of a dumpster fire of a podcast, every interview is TK seeking affirmation from his guest about his talking points for the week. sigh

2/7/20 - I want to hold your hand - The Beatles

HarpFac: Beatles on Ed Sullivan in 1964. On this date they landed at Idlewild. Did you know TK was there? of course you did, because he mentions it every single time the Beatles on Sullivan is discussed, Unless you are Cillizza, who didn't know and is an idiot

I guess Tony never saw this: "The only thing that's different is the hair, as far as I can see. I give them a year." That's from Ray Block, the musical director of the Sullivan show.

2/10/20 - Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow - Carole King

HarpFac: TKs relives his experience as a teenage girl. Tapestry is not in the top 10 of all times (it was in 1976). It is currently about number 40. (25 million claimed sales). Hotel California is number 14 (32 million). Album has tailed off considerably in sales from its initial debut. Surprised that they didn't do Boys of Summer for Roger Kahn
