    Looking for a song

    Back in the late 1960's and early 1970's there was a radio show called "Beaker Street" on 1090 am KAAY Little Rock Arkansas. The show was on from 7pm to midnight. It was heard all over the midwestern United States. I live in Northwest Illinois. I had to listen to it on my car radio.

    Clyde Clifford the D.J. sometimes played a talking song called "Sinking Of The Bismarck". It was 90 minutes long and started out really slow , worked up to a fever pitch and back down again. He only played this song about three times as far as I know.

    It was the longest song I have ever heard. I would love to have an MP3 of it.

    Beaker Street played songs by artists that might not have otherwise gotten air time. Definitely not main stream music.

    Legend of The U.S.S. Titanic

    Don't recall any songs about the Bismark, but there was one called
    "Legend of The U.S.S. Titanic" by Jamie Brockett

    You can find the complete lyric here:

    &

    Yes, it's available on cd:

    I don't think it ran 30 minutes, but time was VERY relative back in the 70's
