Hi again from the black lit hippie pad that we call the revolution. Join me on the bean bag chair and enjoy this week's trip. Eric Burdon will remind us why the Monterey Pop Festival was not only the first, but in a lot of ways maybe the best music festival ever. Arlo Guthrie will give a whole new meaning of to the termHomeland Securityand the Beatles will lead us down Abbey Road with a couple of George Harrison's songs. Bob Weir is celebrating his birthday today I'm sure of it. We'll get some good ol Grateful Dead going and we'll pass it around to our friends. Been going into the early Fleetwood Mac stuff lately and this Saturday we'll pick one from 1973. Justin Hayward is another sixty something celebrating a birthday this week. He will take us to the dreamy world of those special days, the Days of Future Past. The Stones will sing one of the songs they sang on their very first appearance on the Ed Sullivan show. Later Ed would say, "geez these guys are thugs, We'll never have them back again". ...of course he would have them back a bunch more times. Hey they were a lot bigger than Ed Sullivan, eventually. We'll hear from Zombies vocalist Colin Blunstone about his band. How they met, why they went to places they never anticipated. Pink Floyd, the Allman Brothers and Cream will keep this thing rocking on Saturday. We'll also talk about the American Tribal Love- Rock musical Hair. It was a cultural breakthrough and it played before the public for the first time on October 16th 1967 at New York's Public Theater. It would go on to play on Broadway and beyond, even a movie was made from the play. It even had a local Sacramento Production a few years ago. So let's get together this Saturday, share a good vibe or two, be sure to hold it in till you grin. Peace Out.
Hair today...............Gone Tomorrow
