Tune In, Turn On, And Drop Trou- KVMR's homage to the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love!
50 years ago... Lester Maddox became governor of Georgia and a few short months later Thurgood Marshall was confirmed as the first African American US Supreme Court Justice; with Viet Nam escalating Martin Luther King denounced the Viet Nam war and Muhammad Ali refused military service; the Black Panther Party protested a bill restricting the right to bear arms in public and carried weapons into the Capital Building in Sacramento; race riots in Florida, DC, Detroit, New Jersey and New York. We were a politically divided nation. Sound familiar? Also- first sighting of Bigfoot in a movie- the famous slow creature walking- pulling the wool over our own eyes (that's for you Haines!). With all the violence, social distortion and unrest, what the world needed then the world still needs now: love sweet love. "C’mon people now, smile on each other everybody get together now try and love one another right now." This message is still genius. And we even have tickets to see Jesse Colin Young at the State Theatre in Auburn. Check tickets list here.
