    I grew up in the 60's as a child and my father had Jim Lowe's 45 version of Green Door, which we played a whole lot in that decade and beyond. My father was a part owner and PD for XEAK (The Mighty 690), which was a "border blaster" top 40 radio station based on the West Coast. He brought home a whole lot of 45's in the late 50's and early 60's by everybody from Elvis to Jim Lowe. I was really disappointed that they did not include Jim Lowe's stellar original version on the soundtrack album. Is is played during the movie at all?

    No, the soundtrack version is played as the character was performing it on TV in the movie. I remember it being maybe 40-60 seconds tops.

    Where in that video does Ramos deconstruct Once Upon A Time In Hollywood? I skipped ahead hunting for it and it's all mainly what Ramos does as a support service agent for acquiring music. Nothing about why the songs were chosen.

    The link provided is to an article that probably goes deeper into song decisions (I have not seen the video) Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood’: Deconstructing the Soundtrack I believe someone here in the thread did the interview and it was well done... although I wanted to know more about their needle drops!

    The actual record by Mr. Lowe was not played in the movie, as my post #146 explains I looked it up after I recalled hearing a cover of the song

    That was prompted by Leo’s character singing the song in a scene in the movie.

    Was the Mighty 690 where Wolfman Jack worked? If so, did he know him?

    Where is it mentioned in this thread that someone here did the interview? The poster "Seque" out of Hawaii posted the YouTube video and didn't mention anyone's name.

    Just saw it and California Dreaming was playing right after Sharon Tate had went and watched herself in the movies and they were showing all the movie theaters around town.

    I have to say this movie was incredible. Nobody can do a movie like Tarantino when he is on his game. The pop culture was amazing.

    I didn't want it to end!

    Might have to spin this tonight!

    Guess this song from the Movie , Valley of the Dolls, was to obvious to include, ( and probably not fitting any scene) but it makes my extended soundtrack!

    Perhaps you didn't notice there are 2 links in my post. One linking to: Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood’: Deconstructing the Soundtrack, written by an esteemed SHF member and then a second link to the video interview with Ramos.

    On a side note Tarantino used to come into my LA record store fairly frequently in the 80's when he was still working at a video store in the area. He had a deep knowledge and interest in great music even back then. Now he has a virtual record store in his home, complete with bins!

    Here’s another gem that could help expand the Soundtrack, if that was ever proposed.

    Yes indeed, my father was an early proponent of Wolfman Jack and he did indeed broadcast his shows on the Mighty 690. This is something I wrote about in the liner notes for John Klein's A Christmas Sound Spectacular that got released on a CD twofer by Real Gone Music last year. It was my father's favorite Christmas album and a really usual album on the RCA Living Stereo moniker. It featured the largest carillon in the world and a fantastic orchestra with some of the finest New York based studio musicians from 1959. The Wolfman never forgot about my father's early help in his career and come to see him many years later in the 90's, when my father was president of television station KTTY (Channel 69) in San Diego. The 69 designation was a pure coincidence, by the way. The original radio station was featured in the movie American Graffiti, but they got a few facts wrong in the movie of course. The Mighty 690 had sales offices in Los Angeles, but was actually broadcast out of San Diego. The transmitter was located in Tijuana, Mexico and broadcast at 50,000 watts, which was very rare for the times.

    Thanks, great story and info, awesome!

    I became aware of some of the history when Americans Graffiti came out.

    Than when I moved out to the West Coast, it had become an All Sports Station of note with”blowtorch”
    Level reception with”Hacksaw”, Rome, et all.

    Here’s The Wolfman from another movie with a famed Soundtrack and featuring a music radio station, as well.

    Now, we are here discussing a movie and soundtrack again, about 45 years later. LOL.

    They have it right here about the whole show being on tape as well. The Mighty 690 did not have the technical ability to do a live radio broadcast at that time. So, it least they got that part right. The actual broadcast studio was not in Los Angeles however, but instead was located in Mission Valley, a part of east San Diego.

    Another song that would make my extended Soundtrack, this deep album cut from Tommy James+ The Shondells.
    Night Time (I’m A Lover)

    There's a podcast on Spotify where QT talks to David Wild about his choices for the soundtrack and he mentions that Sony (I think) made him a one-off two-LP set of songs from the era, just to let him know about all the great catalog stuff they had. Must be nice, eh?

    For the extended soundtrack I feel like if their was ever going to be a song by Love in a movie it should have been in this one.

    Something from Forever Changes should have made the cut
