Generation Gap?

This week marks the anniversary of one of the more bizarre manifestations of the 60s..".The Generation Gap". A rather handy shorthand for the ever widening canyon between the hip kids and their confused parents. With so much of the "Woodstock Generation" steadily finding new ways to live and new values to embrace, the Government of course started to freak out. On December 4th 1969, President Nixon, Vice president Agnew and 40 US governors began a fact finding mission to discover the causes of the generation gap. They view films of simulated acid trips and listen to hours of anti-establishment rock music. Their findings were, Well, as Dylan said "Something is happening here and you don't know what it is, do you Mr. Jones"?..Listen below to Agnew's conclusion of what he learned from this experience. Musically we start at 7pm with a musical trip around the world from the Paul Butterfield Blues Band. Simon and Garfunkle will give the weather report, we will get soulful with Otis and Sam and Dave. Wow, it just keeps rocking with Canned Heat, Vanilla Fudge, and Jimi Hendrix. Another anniversary this week is the great Kieth Richards electrocution. It happened here in Sacramento, at the Memorial Auditorium in 1965. It took a while for the smoke to clear. Were you there? Another Memorial Auditorium moment is highlighted this Saturday. The Beach Boys concert album becomes their first to top the charts on this day in 1964..recorded at the Memorial. Birthdays this week include the late Beach Boys Drummer Dennis Wilson, Byrds guitarist Chris Hillman, Bob Mosley from Moby Grape, Ozzy Osbourne and Jim Messina. Be sure to tune in at 7 sharp, don't miss a lick. It will be festive. Peace Out 69 Spiro Agnew generation gap
