June 18, 2007 40th Anniversary Monterey Pop Fest Special w/ Host Bob Dubrow and Guest Host Larry Miller

Whew! We did it! The playlist for today's 5 1/2 hour live audio commemoration of the Monterey International Pop Festival (June 16-18 1967), with its emphasis on unreleased material, is below. We followed via song the festival's own order of band appearances fairly religiously. WMBR's own Larry Miller was a deejay on San Francisco's progressive FM station KMPX (the nation's first!), as well as an attendee at the event, and he gave us plenty of memories to chew on. They managed to become fresh and new again as we went back through the years to a more innocent time...of music, love, and flowers.

Hey Bob,

Was just listening to the 3 segment Monterey Pop Lost & Found, and found that Part 3 that I have ends with the Airplane, and Larry doing his "Radio Announcer" bit and a thanks to Charlie for his R&D slot.

I was hoping to download fresh copies via a Google search, but the clips are no longer available on MBR's server. :(
