Sunday Respite – “John Birch Society”


The Chad Mitchell Trio back in 1962 gave this tune. Anyone out there recall the book “None Dare Call it Treason?” Just a reminder of earlier days.

    Somehow, it just isn’t funny any more. Prophetic maybe, but not funny.

      Yes, I thought the same thing. The McCarthy hearings aren’t so funny anymore are they?

    Yeah, I had the book since ’64. Recently tossed it and “A Texan Looks at Lyndon” out. They say one should never do that, but you finally have to make room and clean out.
    Someone did a song about Lyndon too, but I forget the name. I’m sure it’s on the web somewhere.

      Nothing like memory lane is there?

        No. Particularly when you’ve seen it and lived to remember it. 🙂

    Funny. Chad is a good friend of ours. He lives in Spokane. Hubby played with him at the 92nd St Y in New York for a huge folk gathering back in ’95. Pete Seeger and Burl Ives were also on the ticket. Even though Pete Seeger is a dyed in the wool commie, hubby thought he was very nice. Turns out, Seeger was a big fan of hubby, who used to write for many music magazines. Probably why hubby thought he was nice. 😉

      Great story A. The group was a favorite of mine in those days, along with the Kingston Trio, Peter Paul and Mary… oh the good old days!🙂
