For anyone growing up in the late-'60s, the female voice most identified with Leonard Cohen songs probably is Judy Collins, whose Elektra recordings of such eloquent works as "Suzanne" and "Hey, That's No Way to Say Goodbye" helped establish Cohen as one of our most gifted songwriters.

There aren't a lot of university radio stations that that can claim a Beatle among their fans, but Cal State Northridge-based public station KCSN-FM (88.5) just became one. “Paul McCartney called today to express his appreciation of KCSN and to thank us for our support of his new record,” station program director Sky Daniels tells Pop & Hiss. “He told us he was having dinner in L.A. last night and all of his 'friends were raving about KCSN, telling me how you were playing multiple tracks from the album.' " The impromptu phone call turned into an hourlong discussion about the recent 50th anniversary of the Beatles' first appearance on “The Ed Sullivan Show,” McCartney's latest project (composing music for an animated film)

Stephen Stills' new blues band The Rides will headline the latest benefit concert for Cal State Northridge-based radio station KCSN FM (88.5) on Nov. 3 at the university's Valley Performing Arts Center. In addition to Stills' band, which includes guitarist Kenny Wane Shepherd and keyboardist Barry Goldberg, singer-songwriter Lucinda Williams will perform along with rising Los Angeles musician L.P., reflecting the station's programming mix of music from established stars and novice musicians across a broad range of genres.

Woodley Park is a long way from Woodstock--a few thousand miles and a couple of generations. The gap may narrow Sunday when an impressive lineup of musicians provide free entertainment at the park in the third annual 97.1 KLSX Classic Jam. A Woodstock alumnus, Stephen Stills, will be part of the event. "I think it's kind of neat," Stills said. "It's more of the old thing." Stills will perform with his untitled blues band instead of with more familiar mates David Crosby and Graham Nash.

Adoring, nostalgic audiences have let Crosby, Stills & Nash slide by on nights when they sounded as if their ability, enthusiasm and relevance to '80s pop were a long time gone. But ignited by David Crosby's powerful, assured singing, the group earned its ovations Saturday at the Pacific Amphitheatre.

Stephen Stills wasn't shy about giving the House of Blues audience what it wanted Saturday night: He kicked off the show with his 1970 hit "Love the One You're With" and continued dishing up familiar fare from his early Buffalo Springfield work, the Crosby, Stills & Nash (and Young) catalog and his long solo career. But the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and his backing quintet didn't pander completely to nostalgia, offering a few new tunes during the 90-minute set.

"Reports of my obesity have been greatly exaggerated," Stephen Stills announced near the beginning of his performance at the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano on Monday night. And, sure enough, even if the 44-year-old singer is not down to the fighting weight of his Buffalo Springfield days, neither is he still on his way to becoming a bookend for CS&N partner David Crosby. What's more pertinent is that Stills well may have shed a pound or two during his set.

Richie Havens, the veteran folk singer whose frenetic guitar strumming and impassioned vocals made him one of the defining voices and faces of Woodstock and 1960s pop music, died Monday of a heart attack at his home in Jersey City, N.J. He was 72. His death was confirmed by his booking agent, Tim Drake. The Brooklyn native with the powerful ripsaw voice galvanized rock fans as the opening act at Woodstock, the festival billed as "Three Days of Peace and Music" in upstate New York in August 1969.

On his own and as a member of Crosby, Stills & Nash (and sometimes Young), two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Stephen Stills has taken part in many a benefit concert over the last four decades, but usually his role has been that of rock singer and guitarist. That changes with the Light Up the Blues benefit concert on Saturday for Autism Speaks, which CSN is headlining and also features Lucinda Williams, Rickie Lee Jones, Don Felder, Ryan Adams and several others at Club Nokia.

Stephen Murray is surrounded by the sport that made him and broke him. Behind his one-story ranch house in Riverside, a dirt-jumping course is carved into a sloping hill before it gently weaves around to his frontyard, where more jumps await. The whizzing of dozens of spinning BMX bike wheels moving through the course makes his property sound like an oversized beehive that's been disturbed. But Murray likes it that way. He had the course built in his yard, after all, so they would come, just like in a movie.

A Bel-Air house built in the 1930s that has been home to many celebrity owners over the years has come on the market at $10,995,000. Actress Betty Grable, musician Stephen Stills, actress Jacqueline Smith, motor company founder John DeLorean and former entertainment executive Anthony Thomopoulous and his wife, actress-talk show host Cristina Ferrare, have all called the gated residence home. Situated on nearly an acre of park-like grounds with a pool, spa and mature trees, the country English-style house has a two-story entry hall, a club-like den with wood beam ceilings, a media room, an updated kitchen, an office, six bedrooms, seven bathrooms and staff quarters in more than 3,500 square feet of living space.

Stephen Stills, who had surgery for prostate cancer on his 63rd birthday, was expected to return home Friday, his wife said. Stills, of Crosby, Stills & Nash (and sometimes with Neil Young), had the operation Thursday in Los Angeles, said Kristen Stills in a statement. "Stephen's procedure went remarkably well and he couldn't be better," she said. "The pain will be minimal." The two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame artist is scheduled to attend the Sundance Film Festival in Utah for the Jan. 25 world premiere of "CSNY Deja Vu," the statement said.

Has breaking into the music business been easier for Chris Stills because he's the son of Stephen Stills? No doubt about it. "I've gotten gigs just on account of my name," admits the 23-year-old offspring of the Crosby, Stills & Nash co-founder. And in January his debut album, "100 Year Thing," will be released by Atlantic Records, the label his dad has recorded on for most of his career.

"Here is an old, old song from the Jurassic Age of rock 'n' roll," Stephen Stills said as he launched into the 1967 Buffalo Springfield hit, "For What It's Worth" toward the end of his 13-song set at the Coach House. Stills wrote the song to express the political discontent of the '60s, and he could have easily presented it Saturday as relevant to today's troubling times. Instead, he turned it into a merry audience participation tune in which he sang "Stop," the crowd shouted back "Hey!"

It was as far from a rock 'n' roll venue as you could get -- a palatial room at the posh St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort & Spa in Dana Point. Nine hundred ballroom chairs were lined up, theater style. And a stage worthy of a Las Vegas showroom was bathed in a rainbow of spots, ready for the concert by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers that would raise funds for the AIDS Services Foundation Orange County and the Laguna Art Museum.
