Interview with Jefferson Airplane founder Marty Balin08/15/11 Robert Lorei
Last Call Monday | Listen to this entire show:
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 1960â€™s and early 70â€™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 weâ€™ll talk with the founder of Jefferson Airplane - Marty Balin who is live with us in the studios.
Heâ€™ll be performing at the WMNF Peace Awards on Saturday August 27 at the Straz Center in Tampa.
