Kemp's Playlist from June 8

Today's show paid homage to the Monterey International Pop Music Festival, which was held June 16, 17, & 18, 1967, in Monterey, California. This festival provided enough material for many hours of programming - whittling it all down to two hours was an interesting challenge.

There are several good resources on the web for information about the festival -, a "fan site" by an attendee (beware of pesky Tripod popups), and a site that features many of the famous and infamous festivals from that era.

Here's the playlist from today's show:

The Mamas and The Papas, "California Dreaming" from the Forest Gump soundtrack
Eric Burden and the Animals, "San Franciscan Night" from Winds of Change (LP)
Simon & Garfunkel, "Homeward Bound" and "The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feeling Groovy) from Simon & Garfunkel's Greatest Hits
Eric Burden and the Animals, " Paint it Black" also from Winds of Change
