Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon: KPFK Wed. 11/17

It’s the Pacifica Archives fund drive, and we’ll be featuring Pacifica audio documentaries on Jimi Hendrix and John Lennon:  for Jimi Hendrix, an amazing show featuring rare recordings and interviews with blues singer John Hammond (who befriended the young Hendrix in Greenwich Village in 1966), Chas Chandler from The Animals (who brought Hendrix to England and became his manager), as well as Hendrix biographer David Henderson.

The Pacifica Archives Campus Campaign places unique historical audio in college and school libraries: 180 hours of audio in two volumes from the vault:  Civil Rights, 1968, Women’s Studies, The Environment, Malcolm X, Noam Chomsky, and Studs Terkel, Black Power, and more.  Presented in mp3 format on 18 discs, this set requires a pledge of $250 — please call during the show — or pledge online HERE.
