46 years ago this week a band in San Francisco performed for the first time in public. The Jefferson Airplane. They went on to perform at the Monterrey Pop Festival, Woodstock and Altamonte - the most storied music festivals of the 1960’s and early 70’s.

In terms of music and lifestyle, the Jefferson Airplane epitomized the San Francisco sound. The Airplane evolved from roots in folk and blues to become a psychedelic powerhouse. They challenged the conventions of the day on sex, drugs, and politics. In a moment we’ll talk with the founder of Jefferson Airplane - Marty Balin who is live with us in the studios.

He’ll be performing at the WMNF Peace Awards on Saturday August 27 at the Straz Center in Tampa.
