I thought the Geeter with the heater was Jerry Blather, the guy that Rex uses a looped segment of with the eeps and other vocalizations on it?

I love the album. Some favorite moments going on only the listings here. I always listened to my brother's copy:
Teenage Fair (Teenage Nazi Helmet Commercial) by Rosko is brilliant!
Moments of Soft Persuasion- Peter Yarrow
The Family Dog - John Herald (I think Herold is a typo. John Herald was a Woodstock fixture. Probably still is. Did bluegrass after this.)
The Nude Dance is by Hamsa El Din? I'll have to go back and listen to it!
My Name Is Jack - John Simon
The Wabe!
Don't Remind Me Now of Time - Peter Yarrow

Cheers,

It's reasons like this that I look forward to your posts every week. Really, really great stuff.

O.K. who can name the 19th century philosopher who coined the phrase "You are what you eat." Hints: sort of a positivist, critical of religion and more famous for what another philosopher had to say about him than for his own writings.

John L

I cheated and looked it up on the internet.
http://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/you%20are%20what%20you%20eat.html
Anthelme Brillat-Savarin? I've never heard of him but I guess you could call him a philosopher. Did you mean Ludwig Andreas Feuerbach? He seems to fit into the philosopher mold better. I haven't heard of him either but then being a philosophy major almost 30 years ago has taken its toll.

Cheers,

PS I should have written Jerry Blavet, not Blather. And what still mystifies me is that nothing in Rosko's history mentions his NYC DJ days. I can't remember which "underground" FM stations he was on in the 60s/70s but I do remember him being on BAI in the 80s for a little while.

I was very surprised to see that Rosko is white, not black and that he was so raucous. I always thought of his as ultimate mellow. It then follows that it is less surprising that he is also Jewish given some other Jewish chameleons like Ramblin' Jack Elliott and others in the music biz.

Emporer Rosko is not the same as Rosko from the old WNEW days.

illlich

this confused me at first, the Emperor Rosko is not the same as the NY area radio DJ known as Rosko, who did voice-overs (including a radio ad for the 3rd Velvet Underground LP), was on some of the Mystic Moods Orchestra LPs, and who later made a mildly hilarious album of spoken word "poetry" over 80's smooth jazz, called "Private Moments." A voice as distinctive as Ken Nordine or Alexander Scourby.

bartelby

Yeah, it's Ludwig Feurbach of Marx's Theses on Feurbach fame

I do believe you've mixed up your Roskos.

I'm 99.9% sure that the Rosko on "You Are What You Eat" isn't Emperor Rosko but the WNEW-FM DJ, whose original name was William Roscoe Mercer.

I'm ancient enough to have seen the movie in its first run, and to have heard the soundtrack played endlessly on WNEW-FM, by Rosko along with his colleagues, Scott Muni, Allison Steele, and Jonathan Schwartz.

Rosko was one of the first NY progressive DJs, brought in by Scott Muni when he was hired to turn WOR-FM into a rock station in 1967. In one of those miserable radio coups, the staff was forced out (to make a long story short), and both Rosko and Scottso ended up on WNEW-FM, where they remained for the next few years. They were among the real pioneers of the late, lamented flowering of free-form, progressive radio.

Bill Mercer passed away in 2000. I'm taking the liberty of pasting in his NY Times obit, from their archives. (If this violates any blog guidelines, please delete...)

William Mercer, 73, D.J. Known as Rosko, Is Dead
By JON PARELES
Published: August 6, 2000

William Roscoe Mercer, known for decades to New York radio listeners simply as Rosko, died on Tuesday. He was 73 and lived in New York.

The cause was cancer, according to his daughter Valerie J. Mercer.

Mr. Mercer was the first black news announcer on WINS in New York and, as Rosko, the first black disc jockey on KBLA in Los Angeles. He went on to become a pioneer of free-form FM radio in New York City. On WOR-FM in 1966 and on WNEW-FM from 1967 to 1970, his calm, husky voice with its hint of Southern drawl and his wide-ranging programming made him an authoritative companion amid the musical ferment of the late 1960's.

He delved into rock, soul, folk and jazz; he read poetry and conversed with his unseen listeners in almost fatherly monologues. In one set during the late 1960's, he recited antiwar poetry by Yevgeny Yevtushenko to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir singing the Lord's Prayer, then played Richie Havens's antiwar song ''Handsome Johnny'' as a lead-in to a news report about bombing in Vietnam.

Mr. Mercer was born on May 25, 1927, in New York City and attended a Catholic boarding school in Pennsylvania as a charity student. His first jobs were as a government clerk and then a men's-room attendant at the Latin Casino in Cherry Hill, N.J. He began his radio career as a jazz disc jockey at WHAT in Chester, Pa., moved to WDAS in Philadelphia, and then to WBLS in New York, playing jazz in live broadcasts from Palm Cafe in Manhattan. He played rhythm-and-blues on WNJR in Secaucus, N.J., in the late 1950's, but after refusing to cross a picket line at the station during an effort to create a union for disc jockeys, he was blacklisted for six months.

He became the first black announcer for WINS, and was then hired as a disc jockey by KDIA in Oakland, Calif. Radio station KGFJ in Los Angeles sought to hire him away, leading to a precedent-setting lawsuit that changed the way disc-jockey contracts were written. For a time in the early 1960's, Rosko was heard live on KGFJ and on tape in Oakland six nights a week; he spent the seventh in Oakland, live on KDIA. Then he was hired by KBLA, playing rock and rhythm-and-blues at a formerly all-white station.

He returned to New York to work at WBLS. In 1966, the Federal Communications Commission required radio stations to broadcast separate content on AM and FM stations, and rock music beyond the Top 40 rushed to fill the new air time. The disc jockeys Murray the K and Scott Muni, along with Rosko, moved to WOR-FM to introduce a new style, with disc jockeys freely choosing the music and speaking conversationally to listeners.

But in October 1967, WOR-FM decided to change to a restrictive format. On his last show, without warning the station's management, Rosko spoke for five minutes about why he was resigning, saying, ''When are we going to learn that controlling something does not take it out of the minds of people?'' and declaring, ''In no way can I feel that I can continue my radio career by being dishonest with you.'' He added that he would rather return to being a men's-room attendant.

But within the month, he was hired for an evening shift by WNEW-FM, which picked up WOR-FM's format; soon afterward, WNEW-FM also hired Mr. Muni. Rosko stayed at WNEW until 1970, then moved to France for five years; there, he worked for the Voice of America. He returned to the United States and was heard during the 1980's on the dance-music station WKTU in New York; he also did voice-over work for commercials. Most recently, his voice was heard in announcements for CBS Sports. In 1992, when he learned he had cancer, he refused chemotherapy, turning instead to alternative medicine.

He is survived by his wife, Joanna; five children from three previous marriages, Valerie, William, David, Scott and Melissa Mercer; a sister, Bernice Reid; and two grandchildren.

You seem to have gotten a little carried away on your editing of the blog comments. Not sure if it was purposeful, but my comments directly below Bartleby's first post (had been two identical posts) were dropped. I had reposted link to youtube Tiny Tim post (my mistake) with some additional comments.

Listener Kliph

Woid,

I haven't found any information about the New York Rosko being involved with Your Are What You Eat. I have found information (starting at IMDB) that the Rosko who became big overseas was the one involved with the film. Of course, I might still be wrong, but I haven't found any information stating otherwise yet. I'll have to keep looking for the absolute confirmation, but I imagine you're correct, especially since I seem to have got my Roskos confused in regards to the Murder at Kent State and Massacre at My Lai LPs - who would've thunk two deep voiced radio DJs from the sixties named Rosko!? Godammit.

Krull,

I don't know what happened, your comment may have been deleted by accident while trying to remove a double post. Please leave your comments again. Sorry!

Krull

Thanks for the response and the very informative blog entry. Mine added nothing really, just curious about what happened to it.

JUhrich

You Are What You Eat was edited by Howard Alk who worked with Bob Dylan on Eat the Document and Renaldo and Clara. Alk also made Murder of Fred Hampton, American Revolution II, and edited the Cry of Jazz. Thanks for the post.

Fantastic and much-deserved article on You Are What You Eat! Watching it now is like rummaging through a time capsule of the 60s.

A few comments…

1. Eleanor Barooshian was not Tiny Tim's girlfriend at the time and never was! But she did perform I Got You Babe with Tiny on a regular basis at Steve Paul's The Scene club in NYC. And that's where Peter Yarrow first saw the number and decided to include it in the film. (It was not shot at The Scene though.)

2. Another member of The Cake – Barbara Morillo – also appeared in a few scenes of YAWYE. She is seen dancing in the street, right after the girl blows a gum bubble that breaks over her face. And is also later seen playing in a fountain in NYC. She also took part in a press junket with Peter Yarrow to help promote the film.

3. Tiny Tim's first screen appearance was actually several years earlier. He was in Jack Smith's 1963 film Normal Love. He also made a cameo in the pilot episode of Ironside (in 1967).

4. Tiny was actually taken to audition for Laugh-In by Richard Perry, the producer of God Bless Tiny Tim, at the end of 1967/early 1968, before YAWYE had even been released. I'm not exactly sure of the date that YAWYE premiered but it was almost certainly after Tiny had already become a household name – hence the decision to make him the 'star' of the film and use his name and image so prominently in its marketing.

Michael Powers

200 Motels. I haven't seen that one anywhere since it was new, I don't believe. You wouldn't know it from the trailer but that movie had the most realistic-seeming hallucinogen sequence ever recorded on film; too bad Preminger didn't do something more similar with Gleason and Groucho for the acid scene in "Skidoo."

As for Tiny Tim, in the 70s he was the nemesis of every guy who elected to wear long hair since every middle-aged crone could gleefully refer to you as "Tiny Tim," and would--continuously (we would've preferred "Thor"). He was a heinous one-man blight on popular culture.

Phil X. Milstein

some further notes on YAWYE:

The Rosko of You Are What You Eat is indeed the NYC Rosko, aka Bill Mercer. I don’t know about the My Lai documentary album, but his is definitely the voice on the Murder At Kent State album (reading Pete Hamill's text), as well as the promo 45 for the third VU album (“How do you feel? You don’t really know how you feel, because you haven’t heard the new Velvet Underground yet.”)

[The Geeter with the Heater was Philadelphia DJ (and former American Bandstand dancer) Jerry Blavat.)

Speaking of the Velvet Underground, Tiny Tim’s scenes for YAWYE were shot at the Dom, the Polish community meeting hall located at 23 St. Mark’s Place (“dom” being Polish for home, as per the Latin root that turns up in English as domicile, domestic, etc.) that Paul Morrissey discovered in spring 1966 and used as the site for Andy Warhol’s Exploding Plastic Inevitable. While the VU were on tour that summer Albert Grossman swooped in and undercut Morrissey’s lease on the place, turning it into the rock club Balloon Farm (named ostensibly after a line from some unreleased Dylan song). The VU returned to find they no longer had a home base in their own city, and it was partly in “punishment” for that that (apart from a couple of one-off gigs at a venue named the Gymnasium) they refused to play in the city again until their summer 1970 stand at Max’s Kansas City.

But at time of the YAWYE filming Grossman was in control of the site, and as Peter Yarrow was one of his management clients either loaned or rented (my bet is on the latter) it to him for shooting the Tiny Tim scenes. Grossman also supplied the Hawks/Band, who were of course his clients as well.

According to Chelsea Lee (nee Eleanor Barooshian, incorrectly spelled “Baruchian” in YAWYE credits), the Band played live as she and Tiny recorded their songs, yet for some reason are not seen in the film. Granted the tight close-up on her and Tiny as they sing “I Got You Babe” (with the contralto Eleanor taking the male role, and Tiny doing Cher’s) is very effective (as is Tiny’s solo number of “Be My Baby,” where crowd scenes of screaming, weeping teenies from one of the Beatles’ Shea Stadium concerts are cut in as if they were screaming and weeping for him), and the musicians were unknown at the time, yet I find it frustrating to watch this sequence now, knowing they were there (and not even being particularly a Band fan) but not seeing them. Also present, according to Chelsea, were her Cake-mates Barbara Morillo and Jeanette Jacobs, although I believe they were merely observers. (As noted above Barbara does make a couple of brief appearances elsewhere in the film.)

Chelsea also notes that as Tiny had never sung with a band before (let alone THE Band), he didn’t quite grasp how that interplay should work, and so required over 30 takes just to get down IGYB, this in an unheated studio on a freezing winter’s day. Adding to everyone else’s misery, when he needed to take a leak, instead of using the local facilities he traveled uptown to use the familiar can at his parents’ apartment in Washington Heights.

The YAWYE soundtrack album is one that especially benefits from the transition to CD, as the songs, John Simon’s sparkling incidental music, and the spoken and other audio clips from the film make for a terrific modular album, sounding as great under random sequences as it does under its original one. As excruciating as most of the movie is to watch, the companion album is equally wonderful to hear.

There is absolutely no question in my mind that the Rosko on the LP is Bill Mercer, of WOR-FM (1966-67), WNEW-FM (1967-1971), WKTU and other stations in New York, but his voice does sound a little speeded up on the sample, which perhaps the producers did for timing reasons. (And perhaps that's why there's some question as to which Rosko it was).

There is definitely some live album of that era that has "the other Rosko", Emperor Rosko, doing the introductions, but I can't seem to find it. I thought it might have been Aretha in Paris, but I just checked the jacket and there's no such credit.

Phil wrote: "but his is definitely the voice on the Murder At Kent State album (reading Pete Hamill's text),"

Yes and Rosko used to read this on the air on WNEW-FM often (although I don't know if he was reading live or playing the album). Pete Fornatale, of WFUV, recently dedicated a show to the 40th anniversary of WNEW-FM and replayed that segment. You can probably find that show on the WFUV.org archive.
