Saturday Morning Flashback: 1970 [Playlist]

December 4, 2017
Some writers have suggested that the spiritual end of the 60's began at the deadly Rolling Stones concert a the Altamont speedway in December of 1969. In 1970, more grim news with the deaths of Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin within weeks of each other, along with the break-up of the Beatles, added more fuel to that rising fire. But all was not lost. 1970 saw a greater awareness and desire to protect the planet. The first Earth Day took place and Richard Nixon established the Environmental Protection Agency. It was, like every year, good and bad. A ball of confusion. We have all been here before, as Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young put it. And on Saturday Morning Flashback, it's always Deja Vu all over again. Here's a look at our musical journey through 1970 this time....
