Great idea! Looking forward to this.

Anybody know how to get a hold on some "Action Directe" stuff? You know, Nico Favresse and company from the Asgard Jamming film.

"Sorta."

This program's theme song was on the Top 40 Hits Lists in its first season. Everybody wanted a piece of this cat Kooky with his comb.

As far as the climbing theme content goes, Ed Byrnes' character reminds me of the young Mark Powell, while good old Batso would have been driving the convertible. The others came and went.

Or move it to the next generation. I'm in my van, Cox and Myers and Cagle and Yohollum and one of the Bircheffs is in the back and we're cruising the Valley like the Main.

As a Flame, a lowrider from Campo Quatro, I approve this mode of transport and the activities it promoted. Like reefer madness and mattress sex and rock climbing.

“Wow, Man, that’s real kooky! Way out!”

77 Sunset Strip Lyrics

Seventy Seven Sunset Strip.
Seventy Seven Sunset Strip.
Seventy Seven Sunset Strip.

The street that wears a fancy label
That's glorified in song and fable.
The most exciting people pass you by
Including a private eye.

Seventy Seven Sunset Strip
Seventy Seven Sunset Strip
Seventy Seven Sunset Strip.

You'll meet the high brow and the hipster
The starlet and the phony tripster
You'll see most every kind of gal and guy
Including a private eye.

Seventy Seven Sunset Strip
Seventy Seven Sunset Strip.




77 Southside Drive.




There is more to Dick Clark, leader of the American Bandstand Expedition and the annual Rockin' New Year Party, than most younger people (under 55 is the new "younger generation" in case you didn't know) realize.

He only climbed 5.4, but he was a player who managed to affect everyone who grew up in the fifties and sixties. And seventies. And eighties. And nineties.

Dick is "off the air" permanently now, resting in pieces of vinyl.

He was "sorta" the Fred Beckey of Rock.

And because the rock climbing scene relies so heavily on the HITS THAT KEEP ON HAPPENING for naming our projects, it seems only fair to mention the Father of Bubblegum, old Beech Nut himself.

Dick Clark is not to be confused with "Tricky Dick," the obscure route in the vicinity of Arrowhead Arete, named for the esteemed late ex-Vice-President. Arrowhead Arete could easily have been named "The Stylus," had someone thought of it...

Which brings to mind the climber known as "Sweet Pea." His last name escapes me, but many of you will remember Raleigh. He hung with Annie Baker and Slings and the Bircheffs and Jerry "Atrick" Anderson.

There are many climbing-themed songs, but more song-themed climbs, I think.

Something will happen to enliven this thread:

The light will shine on your brain cells.

You will remember a song from the past having to do with climbing.

It will be extremely personal and you will be happy to share.

Do it!

As I said, more climbs named for songs than songs having to do with climbing.

A toughie.

Tom Patey is the key.

Mort Hempel knows the key.

Andy wants to jam.
