The term “gonzo journalism” was invented by Hunter S. Thompson. Gonzo Journalism is a style of journalism where the writer immerses himself so deeply into the subject that they personally become the center of the narrative. The term “gonzo” quickly morphed into into many “over the top” activities, most notably morning FM radio programs.

But there was only one true “Gonzo” journalist and that was Hunter S. Thompson. “Dr. Hunter S. Thompson” as he sometime liked to be called. (Hunter got his doctorate from the Universal Life Church)

Al Satterwhite has been a professional photographer all of his adult life. His work has appeared in Automobile, Car & Driver, Fortune, Geo, Life, Look, Money, Newsweek, People, Playboy, Sports Illustrated, Time, Travel & Leisure and many, many other publications and books. Al met Hunter in the early 70s while covering a GOP convention. The two young lions became friends and for the next several years, from time-to-time, Al would get a call from Hunter. “Al! Meet me at…” and off they’d go on another Thompson-Satterwhite adventure.

5.23.13 Xaviant Haze, Independent Researcher, Did Elvis Really Fake his Own Death?

Click Here to Listen to Archived Show, FREE, Anytime.
 

Elvis Our guest, independent historian, Xaviant Haze, takes a look back at the strange story of the "alleged" death of Elvis Presley and some startling facts that just DO NOT add up.

On August 16, 1977 the entire world was stunned by the news of the death of the King of Rock'n Roll, Elvis Presley. Although it was no secret that he was not in good health, he was only 42 years old.

His funeral was the very next day and was enormous! While some thought that was a little odd, most of us were just in shock, very sad, and didn't give it much attention.

But a few years later, stories began to circulate that all was not right with the official story, and that Elvis was very much alive. The short question would be, "Why would he have done that? After all, Elvis had everything."

Superficially, that would seem reasonable. But a deeper look into the life of Elvis Presley clearly shows that it wasn't necessarily "good to be the King."

By the late '80s the "Elvis is Alive" story was hot stuff. There was even a TV special with Elvis' actor friend, Bill Bixby. A boat load of compelling information was presented, but of course, without a real, provable Elvis, it's just a "story." But it's a story that refuses to go away. Xaviant Haze keyed into the story and pulled together the talking points in his fascinating essay, "Did Elvis Fake His Own Death? "

1-Laurel-Canyon-FB-72Our Guest is Dave McGowan, author of a very intriguing series  of articles about a strange story, a bit of hippie era history as recounted by people who were there but whose memories may or may not be "intact".  Thus the title :The Strange but Mostly True Story of Laurel Canyon and the Birth of the Hippie Generation.

Okay Boomers, let’s do some time trip’n with Dave McGowan, back to the crazy, hazy dayz of the ‘60s and ‘70s. Location, Laurel Canyon in Los Angeles County, California! Yes, somethin’ was happen’n there, and it wasn’t exactly clear. Until now. Rock historian Dave McGowan will take us back to the groovy pad called “The Log Cabin” and we’ll hang with Jim Morrison, David Crosby, Stephen Stills, Neil Young, Jimmy Hendrix, Frank Zappa, The Mamas and The Papas, Mike Nesmith, Cory Wells, James Taylor, Joni Mitchell and on and on, Man.

Any one who was anyone in the rock scene in the ‘60s and ‘early ‘70s drifted through Laurel Canyon. Why? To quote from our guests series, “Perhaps Neil Young said it best when he told an interviewer that he couldn’t really say why he headed out to LA circa 1966; he and others “were just going like Lemmings.”

So put on a tie-dye t-shirt, this will be, “Far Our, Man!”
