Description

The Cowsills had an incredible ride in the 1960s. A family-based band with up to 6 siblings plus their mom, they went from playing cover songs to being discovered and featured on the Today Show, which was watched by Johnny Nash of "I Can See Clearly Now" fame who then signed this all-white group of kids to his black record label. After adding their mom into the group and completely changing their musical style they had a string of hits with "The Rain, The Park, And Other Things", "Hair" and "Indian Lake". I discuss all of this with Bob, Paul and Susan Cowsill and we do a Songfest.

My featured song in this episode is “Because She Said So”. Spotify link here.
