50 years ago today people were gathering for the Monterey International Pop Festival, the first major rock festival. It thrust artists like Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Otis Redding and the Who, all relatively unknown into the world's musical and cultural consciousness. It was also the start of the Summer of Love. We'll get groovy tonight on the Heart and Soul Radio Program tonight from 6-9 PM PST on Blue Mountain Radio KQBM 90.7 and 103.7 FM or stream from www.kqbm.org. Music from the festival and other artists from 1967 - We can all use a little more love today!

great to see this
Greetings Mark Dyken!
(Apologies for this not being a review as such-- I'll give this a listen first & then come with that in future.)
Just wanted to thank you for your presence here. Was so glad to have stumbled across your show (and station-- LP radio is so great!) Have loved Clan Dyken playing our Whole Earth Festival going back many-a-moon.. THANKS! I'm even old enough to remember when it was so festive it seemed almost like `67 SF for a minute.. very glad you're still performing, btw.
Most folks would just use F*book to connect, but it's always troubled me for various reasons.. even Twitter is showing signs of being similarly oppressive. But I digress. SO great to have archive.org!
Speaking of which-- give my new KDVS public affairs show a listen, if you like. I've yet to get up the courage to do my originally-planned call-in segment, but may still do, as what motivated me to get a show was the departure of many long-running, quality shows from KDVS lately. Would be happy to interview you about the band & sundry topics.. we have a pretty good signal strength now, and it's at drivetime!
