Rock Doc Chronicles
of 2019 I debuted a new show called "Rock Doc Chronicles." After doing 32 episodes of "Chicano Rock Chronicles" I
realized I needed another show to feature artists that did
not fit into the Chicano/Latino/East L.A.-related music
category. In other words, the other side of brown.
I'm pleased and honored to have as my first guest the
legendary folksinger Ramblin' Jack Elloit. The two
other guests I've had are English rock star Terry Reid and world-class
musician/singer/songwriter Tim Weed. The moniker Rock Doc in "Rock Doc
Chronicles" came from a name pioneer rocker Chan Romero
started calling me when we started working together in 1995.
Since then he calls me Rock Doc. I'm not using the
name to create a radio character, just for the title of the
show because since Chan gave me the name it has special meaning to
Show #1- Ramblin' Jack Elliot- Mark Guerrero
interviews legendary folksinger Ramblin' Jack Elliot.
Ramblin' Jack has been called the "son of Woody Guthrie" and
the father of "Bob Dylan." Jack started singing and
travelling in the early '50s, was part of Bob Dylan's
legendary Rolling Thunder Revue in 1975, and continues to
tour and perform at age 87 in 2019. We talk about some
of his experiences with Woody and Dylan and his encounters
with Jack Kerouac, James Dean, Lead Belly, and Ringo Starr.
Some of his and other related recordings are played.
This is the first episode of my new show, "Rock Doc
Chronicles." (1 hour 32 minutes and 50 seconds)

Show #2- Terry Reid- Mark
Guerrero interviews English rock singer/songwriter/guitarist
Terry Reid. Terry and his band opened for the Rolling
Stones and Cream in the 1960s. Because he had an album out
and was touring with the Stones, he turned down the lead
vocal job for the band who would become Led Zeppelin. In
the '60s, Aretha Franklin was quoted as saying "The best
things to come out of England are the Beatles, Rolling
Stones, and Terry Reid." On this show the best of Terry's
two solo albums of the '70s are featured. The first one,
"Seed of Memory," was produced by Graham Nash. This is the
second episode of my new show, "Rock Doc Chronicles."
