Jack Hamilton/The Psychology Of Streaks

New York Mets 101

Jack Hamilton, "Hair Breath Harry" was one of the characters the Mets had in 1966. A pitcher who would walk the bases loaded then strike 3 batters out. It could be 32 in April and Hamilton would be sleeveless. He walked 88 guys in 140 innings in 1966 and threw 18 wild pitches. Opposing teams were a bit cautious as Hamilton really didn't know where the ball was going. He had the distinction of hitting a grand slam home run in a 11-9 loss to the Cardinals, and in being thrown out at first base from right field by Johnny Callison of the Phillies. With the California Angels he was the pitcher who hit Tony Conigiliaro in the face with a pitch which ultimately ended Tony C's career. Unfortunately Hamilton's career was probably also over because of the beaning.  How do you win 7 in a row with the same bunch of guys who could just as easily lose 7 in a row. It's all about good and bad stress and focusing on your successes not your failures. We still need to get to .500 to be relevant. Let's keep this streak going and make the next 2 months fun for Mets fans. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/appSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/james-burns52/support

Jack Hamilton, “Just Around Midnight: Rock and Roll and the Racial Imagination” (Harvard UP, 2016)

New Books in Music

In Just Around Midnight: Rock and Roll and the Racial Imagination (Harvard University Press, 2016), Jack Hamilton examines major American and British recording artists of the 1960s to explain what happened during the decade to turn rock-n-roll white. By pairing musicians such as Sam Cooke and Bob Dylan or The Beatles and Motown, Hamilton explores the connections among artists and how artists influenced each other across racial and musical distinctions. Hamilton’s well-researched text seeks to expand how we think about the rock and roll canon and challenge how we think about music during the time period. He explores the ways in which rock and roll critics rebranded rock and roll as white and promoted and sold it as authentic to fans. Hamilton’s book challenges the racial categories of authenticity in the 1960s, and challenges readers to hear music differently. Rebekah Buchanan is an Assistant Professor of English at Western Illinois University. Her work examines the role of narrative–both analog and digital–in people’s lives. She is interested in how personal narratives produced in alternative spaces create sites that challenge traditionally accepted public narratives. She researches zines, zine writers and the influence of music subcultures and fandom on writers and narratives.

Ep. 28: Jack Hamilton on the Golden Age of Hip Hop

The Chauncey DeVega Show

To begin 2015, The Chauncey DeVega Show will feature two shows focusing on hip hop music.  Our first guest for 2015 is Jack Hamilton. He is a contributing writer at Slate magazine, and also an Assistant Professor of American Studies and Media Studies at the University of Virginia. I am a member of the hip hop generation. My own work focuses on race, hip hop, and the politics of popular culture. It is always wonderful to chat with a fellow traveler such as Jack Hamilton. In this episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show, Jack and I talk about the life and legacy of the late, great, MC known as The Notorious B.I.G., the current state of hip hop music, the occasion of how many seminal hip hop albums are now 20-years-old, teaching popular music in the classroom, writing about music for Slate, the colorline and black music, and how/if the conversion from analog to digital has changed--in a negative way--publics' relationships with popular music, as well as the complicated role of the white critic in black music.
