This special contains songs and interview clips from The Who, Jimi Hendrix, Buffalo Springfield, Janis Joplin, Jefferson Airplane and others. The Monterey International Pop Music Festival was a three-day concert event held June 16 to June 18, 1967 at the Monterey County Fairgrounds in Monterey, California. Monterey was the first widely promoted and heavily attended rock festival, attracting an estimated 55,000 total attendees with up to 90,000 people present at the event&#39;s peak at midnight on Sunday. The festival is remembered for the first major American appearances by Jimi Hendrix, The Who and Ravi Shankar, the first large scale public performance of Janis Joplin, and the introduction of Otis Redding to a large, predominantly white audience. Tune in for this journey back to this extraordinary music festival on Red River Radio.
