Flashback Special!

8:03am - 12:03pm

looking back at the first music festival I ever attended. 50 years ago this weekend The Hollywood Music Festival took place on a farmer's field near Keele University in North Staffordshire. It was the first appearance outside North America of The Grateful Dead. Traffic - just prior to launching John Barleycorn Must Die; British jug band Mungo Jerry; and lots more! Plus new releases by Gretchen Peters, The Nell & Jim Band, Pharis & Jason, Canadian singer Elise LeGrow, Jake Blount, Ranky Tanky, Bob Dylan, Les Fireflies, Laura Cortese, and much more. (I messed up the recording and omitted a track by The Burying Ground. I will feature their new CD on next week's show.)
