ested in the other sounds Lincoln has to
KLIN is basically middle-of-the-road
on AM 1400. FM 107.3 is nice, mellow
evening music, as is KHKS at FM
102.7. KHKS used to be KWHG until
DFOR bought them out a couple of years
ago. KFOR, AM 1240, is a nice cross
between KLMS and KLIN-AM A lot of
the schmaltz of KLIN falls out along
with the Donny Osmond-type junk
KLMS, AM 1480, is the most popular
and best Lincoln AM station and you'll,
see their T-shirts running around town,
usually with funny looking people in
them (strictly my obersvation). Most
of KLMS is top 40 (or 30 or 20 or
whatever it is by now; their secret to
success lies in playing the same record
165 times per hour).
At FM 101.9, KFMQ, which refers to
itself as "The Radio Station" (heavey,
hug?), airs pretty good rock although
they, too, have a small repetition
problem. KFMQ tracks a new or
relatively new release a couple of nights
a'' week at 10:00 and brings one gently
'into Sunday morning with classical
music. v '.. .. ......
KRNU, the University of Nebraska
station at FM 90.3, features a myriad of
prog rams including . classical, contem
porary and Cosell. The University
events calendars that will be posted
around campus soon will better explain
KRNU, which begins this year's broad
casting in about 2 weeks.
KECK Proud Country Radio is
Lincoln's most powerful AM station. It
plays country music sunrise to sunset at
1530 and occasionally offer the public a
free country show at Persing. KECK's
FM, KHAT, piays more music and less
DJ than the AM. KHAT is located at
Omaha offers KFAB-AM & FM, 1110
and 99.9 respectively. The AM features
middle-of-the-road music, good news
coverage, and a lot of, special programs
on weekends. Many people listen to
Nebraska football on KFAB-AM. The
FM resembles KLIN-FM. KOIL (AM
1290) and WOW (AM 590) are KLMS
closest competitors, WOW being less
and KOIL being "more annoying than
KLMS. With a fair antennae one can
pick up KOWH, FM 94.1, which plays
Along about 11:00 at night Beaker
Street takes to the air-waves, emanating
from Little Rock, Ardansas. This is the
best music AM has to offer; Beaker
Street is broadcast on KAAY, 1090 (find
KFAB and go back two spaces).
So there you have it. My opinion .of
Lncoln radio. Now go out and buy a
American Bockm hardcover
Review by David Ware . r ."
. Out of the collective memories of tens
of thousands of teenagers has come
what may well be the definitive
celebration of that curious phenomenon
of the '50s, '60s, and '70s rock music.
Soon to be introduced to the American
market," Rock Dreams Under tho
Boardwalk is an impressive collection
of collages, paintings and photographs
assembled by rising Dutch graphic artist
Guy Peelaert, with captions by longtime
inhabitant of the rock world Nik Conn.
Peelaert's illustrations provide a
glowing overview of rock history,
focusing on various groups or trends
rather than attempting a stricly chono
logical approach. At times this system
seems to founder, examples being, the ,
odd juxtaposition of the Lovin Spoonful
and the Byrds, or the frighteningly
funny group portrait of the Mothers of
Invention in Hell's Angels gear coming
immediately after a disturbing painting
of Jim Morrison sitting dead in his
bathtub, an almost Christ-like example
Special praise should go to Nik Cohn,
the author of the captions. Cohn has
matured immensely since the salad days ,
of 1967 and '68, when he made a name
for himself by writing on the London
rock scene fo Eye magazine, and
ill-fated effort by the Hearst Corporation
to cash in on the growing market for
rock journalism. Cohn's captions are
bitterweet capsule summaries of the
; strengths and weaknesses of th;
luminaries and the also-rans of a highly
competitive, gruelling business. Pun
gent, often drawing blood, Cohn has in
the confines of his role as captioneer
turned out what is probably his finest
"work." ' '" '' "'
, Especially effective are the six
tableaux that Peelaert and Cohn devote
to the Rolling Stones, tracing their path
from their beginning as "six small boys
who built themselves a palace of
perpetual pleasures and gave all their
lives to games" to the logical end of
the group, with Jagger sitting on a
divan, port and bisquits resting on a
table in a room that suggests the
Strange world of Oscar Wilde. Cohn's
caption evokes an oddly sympathetic
note: "And then there was only one, all
alone. Immured in his palace of .mirrors,
he never grew any older and, even
though his stock of games had long
since run out, he went right on playing
them, over and over and over."
Peelaert and Cohn have indeed
penned a celebration of rock in all its ,
glory, but it is a sad celebration, a
reminder that time has indeed passed,
and that the endless youth that rock
built upon is no longer in wide supply,
joining the ranks of such endagered
species as California Girls, Little
Surfers, Little Deuce Coupes and Twist
Parties. ' . , :
