Jefferson Airplane 50th Anniversary Concert

Celebrating 50 years of the San Francisco Sound!

Somewhere back in the 1960s.
The smell of incense and patchouli in the air.
Radio on.
WTRY playing the Bougalieu.
The newsrack inside Aunt Fanny's Garage
on Lake Avenue has recent editions of KRLA's THE BEAT. (Kind of a "big sound survey" popstar version of the Washington Park Spirit.)

Turned to the page with the Top 30 songs being played on the west coast AM radio giant.
Hmmm... # 3 "Come Up The Years" by Jefferson Airplane.
Never heard of it.
Bought the LP later at Woolworth's on Central Avenue.
Stopped by NEBA's for a soda.
Went home in time to catch DARK SHADOWS with the teen-aged girl who lived down the street.
Went home for dinner.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
