My Reel Tapes: #3

This is post #3 in a series with playlists from my audio reel tapes that were recorded from FM radio broadcasts during the 60’s and 70’s that I liked. I decided to create Spotify playlists so I could listen to the music again, and share with others. And it’s a lot cheaper than converting all the tapes to DVD and better quality. This brings back lots of memories for me, and I hope you enjoy them too.

While living in Newport News, Virginia, I also listened to another progressive rock radio station which aired on WNOR-FM 99 from Norfolk overnight from 9 pm to 6 am daily. During the daytime it played music in an easy listening format, but now it’s active rock all the time. These songs were recorded during February and March 1971.

Richie Havens was the opening act at the Woodstock Music & Air Fair (or simply Woodstock Festival) in August 1969 before 400,000 people at Max Yasgur’s 600-acre dairy farm near White Lake in Bethel, New Work. He had to play for hours because so many scheduled bands were late arriving because of all the traffic jams.

There is a 1970 film Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace & Music available from Netflix as a 224-minute DVD or Blu-Ray disk with Dolby sound, which won an Academy Award for Best Documentary along with nominations for Best Sound and Best Film Editing. Jimi Hendricks closed out the festival.
