flashback 385 Saturday Morning Flashback 2/26/11Saturday Morning Flashback1969: a potpourri of music! We fit as much as we could into 4 hours – rock, blues, soul, singer-songwriters, and an instrumental piece from Frank Zappa. An X-rated film won the Oscar for Best Picture (Midnight Cowboy), and John Wayne won the award for Best Actor for his portrayal of Rooster Cogburn in the original True Grit. It was the year of Woodstock, a new TV show called “Sesame Street”, the first men on the moon, and a February evening at the Kinetic Playground featured Jethro Tull, Led Zeppelin and Vanilla Fudge. Tickets were $5, and it wasn’t even a budget show!
Next week, it’ll be 1989.
