John Sebastian
Wednesday January 30
Oldies 101.1 Welcomes
JOHN SEBASTIAN
Of The Lovin' Spoonful

Over four decades the contributions of John Sebastian have become a permanent part of our American musical fabric.

His group The Lovin' Spoonful played a major role in the mid-'60s rock revolution, but what leader, singer and songwriter Sebastian had in mind was actually a counter-revolution. "We were grateful to the Beatles for reminding us our rock & roll roots," John explains, "but we wanted to cut out the English middlemen, so to speak, and get down to making this new music as an 'Amer- ican' band."

This the Lovin' Spoonful did like nobody before or since, putting their rst seven singles into the Top 10. This was unprecedented, and utterly unthinkable at the height of Beatlemania. At rst they'd taken older material from blues, country, folk and jug band sources - what we now term "roots music" - and made it sound modern. Then, in a series of original songs composed and sung by John Sebastian, they did the reverse, creating thoroughly modern music that sounded like it contained the entire history of American music. Which it did.
