TONIGHT: Author Harvey Kubernik Hosts "My Turn" featuring Music of Neil Young

"Neil Young: Heart of Gold" by Harvey Kubernik

Earlier this year, we reviewed and interviewed author Harvey Kubernik and his new book "Neil Young: Heart of Gold".

Tonight, SUNDAY, DECEMBER 20th at 6p (PT), Harvey Kubernik will host "My Turn," on BONNEVILLE INTERNATIONAL Classic Rock KSWD (100.3 THE SOUND)/LOS ANGELES.

"MY TURN" is a signature feature of THE SOUND where artists and personalities take over the airwaves to play a personally curated playlist.

KUBERNIK's hour will be devoted to 12 NEIL YOUNG recordings that he selected from the station's library and his own record collection. KUBERNIK will provide commentary on YOUNG's career. You can listen online here.

Here's his "My Turn" playlist:
BUFFALO SPRINGFIELD: "Nowadays Clancy Can’t Even Sing," "Flying On The Ground Is Wrong," "Mr. Soul," "I Am A Child"
NEIL YOUNG: "I"ve Been Waiting For You," "Cinnamon Girl," "When You Dance, I Can Really Love," "Heart Of Gold"
CROSBY, STILLS, NASH & YOUNG: "Sea Of Madness" (from WOODSTOCK), "Helpless" ("Deja Vu"), "Ohio"

We all have our ideal playlists, but this one's a little flat to my ears. Nothing after 1972? Granted, Neil's most obvious brilliance existed between 1969-1972, but my playlist would have to include some later 70's work and beyond, showing Neil's evolving & devolving.

Technically, I'd break down multiple playists separating acoustic, electric, lyrically, by decade, etc., but if I had to pick 12 and 12 only, at this moment in my life, here you go:

Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black)
Tonight's the Night
Old Man
Down by the River
Barstool Blues
The Needle and the Damage Done
Don't Be Denied
After the Goldrush
Rockin' in the Free World
Like a Hurricane

*Ok, I just realized that 12 isn't nearly enough. Gotta
have something from Harvest Moon, Ragged Glory, Sleeps with Angels, and there should be something from this century..

**Just noticed I listed 3 songs from Rust Never Sleeps, but I never mention it as my favorite album. Go figure!

***This is to be considered my "unofficial" playlist--it's subject to change daily.

Take my advice
Don't listen to me

No Hippie Dream?

Grey Rider,

Good catch! Hippie Dream was there on my initial short list, sort of in combination with Don't be Denied, but I had to scrap it along with Ambulance Blues, Southern Man, Revolution Blues, Change Your Mind and others to get down to 12. Definitely a hard thing to do--tough to decide between the commercially accessible work and the more obscure.

Instantly, my quick list had over 20 songs and it still didn't even begin to scratch the surface. It's clear to me I need multiple playlists...

Oh, friend of mine
Please take my advice
Don't listen to me

How's that for a new hybrid tag line?
