Classic Rock Bottom


This weekend marks the 50th Anniversary of the Monterey Pop Festival, held June 16-18, 1967, dates oddly mirroring this coming weekend.
50 YEARS AGO? Why am I always shocked, lol?
For some perspective, this was the beginning of the famous Summer Of Love, and the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper was barely 2 weeks old.
And I was beginning to be consumed by this wonderful Music, the likes of which I had never heard before.
Among the people who put together the Festival in 7 weeks was John Phillips of the Mamas & Papas.
Let’s go back 50 years, and have him give the introduction to the weekend and present what might be a surprising Opening Act.
And go from there.
This is new and completely different from the Series I did 10 years ago!

Nope. The Monterey seals. Go there and you'll see (and hear).

Thanks for the listen & writing,

Yayyy...a PICTURE!

I believe this is the rockingest show you've ever done?

Monterey is cool, think I said that before. Especially the barking seals.
