The Byrds & ‘Mr. Spaceman’

Originally posted January 31, 2008

In October 1967, about the time that my pals and I were creating fake UFOs out of straws, plastic bags and candles and about six months before I got a quick glimpse of a real UFO, the Byrds visited the The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour. One of the two songs the group lip-synched for that performance was its own salute to UFOs and the creatures that fly them: “Mr. Spaceman.”
