Situation wie heute - Private sind fr 'ffentlich-rechtliche', (was fr eine hssliche, aber wahre Bezeichnung), wie Piraten ! Dabei gebrden sich die ffentlich-rechtlichen privater als es die Norm erlaubt. Wie die Piraten von damals.....kupfern ohne Ende !

20.03.1960: Fast 14 Tage nach seiner Entlassung aus dem Militrdienst betritt Elvis heute wieder ein Aufnahmestudio. Viele haben ihm vorausgesagt, er wrde nie wieder das, was er vor dem Mrz 1958 war und bedeutete, der King of Rock'n Roll. Zwei Jahre war Elvis nun Soldat, am 5.Mrz '60 wurde er entlassen - am 20.Mrz  um 20 Uhr stand er wieder vor einem Mikrofon.  Im Studio B der RCA in Nashville.Innerhalb der nchsten 11 Stunden nahm er sechs neue Songs auf: Make Me Know It und Soldier Boy noch am 20., Stuck On You, Fame And Fortune, Mess Of Blues und It Feels So Right am 21.Mrz. Seine alten Musiker-Kumpels waren alle dabei: Scotty Moore, Bob Moore, Floyd Cramer, D.J.Fontana und Hank Garland.

23.03.1963: Bei einer Aufnahmesession von Johnny Jenkins in den Studios des Memphis-Soul-Labels STAX erlaubt der Produktions-Chef der Plattenfirma Johnny's Chauffeur, am Schluss auch mal eine Nummer aufzunehmen.

25.03.1960: Ray Charles nimmt mit Sid Feller, seinem langjhrigen Produzenten, in den New Yorker Capitol Studios Georgia On My Mind auf, eine zeitlose Sdstaaten-Ode. Ray kam von Atlantic-Records, hatte hier ein paar annehmbare Chart-Pltze, aber ABC-Paramount bot ihm einen hohen Vorschuss und knstlerische Freiheit. Mit der ersten Single war er sofort erfolgreich, und landete seinen ersten Nummer 1 Hit. Im Stil der Country Music.

28.03.1958: In Los Angeles ist Eddie Cochran vier Tage lang im Studio B von Capitol Records. Er untersttzt Aufnahmen von Gene Vincent & The Bluecaps.

28.03.1964: Die erste britische Piratenstation, Radio Caroline on 199, nimmt den Sendebetrieb von einem Schiff auf. Die einseitig (Staatsrundfunk, europaweit) berieselten Jugendlichen sind begeistert. Neben Radio Luxemburg gibt es nun eine Station die sich ausschliesslich mit den News  der Musikindustrie befasst. Eine Katastrophe fr die staatlich gelenkten und finanzierten Sender, die um jeden Preis die Freiheit der Jugendlichen, in Sachen Kultur, in Schach halten wollten. Wie heute, nur die staatlichen klingen hnlicher als Piraten, als die Privaten !! In sterreich besonders die Landessender ! Karnevalradio das ganze Jahr ! Stimmung, Ole'

28.03.1964: Radio Caroline on 199. Binnen drei Wochen nach Sendebeginn hatte der Piratensender Radio Caroline fast sieben Millionen Zuhrer, was der BBC und der britischen Regierung sehr missfiel. Situation wie heute - Private sind fr ffentlich-rechtliche (was fr eine hssliche, aber wahre Bezeichnung) wie Piraten ! Dabei gebrden sich die ffentlich-rechtlichen privater als es die Norm erlaubt. Wie die Piraten von damals.....kupfern ohne Ende !

29.03.1969: Ringo Starr sorgt fr Aufregung in der Presse. Er sagte  den Reportern die Beatles wrden nie wieder gemeinsam auftreten. John Lennon, von Yoko Ono geschubst, dementierte, noch in diesem Jahr seien Auftritte der Fab Four geplant.  Leider hatte der Mann mit der Knollennase recht. Yoko Ono bedeutete den Tod fr die Formation ! 

29.03.1973: Ein groer Wunsch ging fr Dr.Hook & The Medicine Show in Erfllung: Das Bild der Gruppe zierte den Titel des US-Magazins Rolling Stone. In Anlehnung an den Top Hit On The Cover Of A Rolling Stone. 

30.03.1956: Die RCA Werbung fr Elvis' Single Heartbreak Hotel geht in England daneben:  Er wird dort als King des Western Bop bezeichnet. Keiner kannte sich damit aus. Nur ein Label-Manager, die ja immer wieder mal als Totengrber von potentiellen Hits bezeichnet werden, heute noch !

30.03.1964: Die britischen Medien berichten von ersten groen Aufeinandertreffen von Rockern und Mods. In Clacton, England, hatten sie sich gegenseitig die Kpfe eingeschlagen. Die Gruppierungen waren die Jugendbewegungen jener Tage in GB. Die Mods waren nett angezogen, schmale Schlipse, Csar-Frisuren und waren mehr die braven, netten von nebenan. Die Rocker sahen aus, als htten sie sich aus den Hot Rockin' Fifties rbergerettet. Entenschwanz-Frisuren, Bryl-Creme -gestrkt, Nietenhosen (Jeans) und sie fuhren BMW-Motorrder. Die Mods fuhren auf Trala-La Vespa-Rollern. Wo sie aufeindertrafen, gab es Auseinandersetzungen. Das wiederholte sich whrend der 3. Rock'n Roll Welle in den 70iger Jahren (Revival No.1-.1968, No.2-1972, No.3 1982 - bis heute und mehr ! )

31.03.1957: In Little Rock, Arkansas, starten Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Onie Wheeler und Glen Douglas eine sehr erfolgreiche Country/Rock'n'Roll-Package Tour durch die Sdstaaten.
