1968 - Part 3

(Episode 22)
Listen to the podcast audio

My two monumental experiences of the Summer of 1968 were connected by a flight from Hamilton, Bermuda where I had just spent a week singing for a group of kids from Manhattan's Lower East Side to Los Angeles where my college friends and I then competed in the semifinals of Your All-American College Show. On one hand doing work that felt like it made a difference, on the other singing with my friends on national television. Two experiences that were opening doors to worlds I had never imagined. Worlds that did not collide but combined for the first time in those few days in the Summer of 1968. 

Here's a link to a Blog Post of a performance that introduced Karen Carpenter to the world. My friends and I are the four guys in the back in sport jackets and ties.
