Ages Of Rock Podcast

Welcome to the Ages of Rock Podcast! We are three guys who have a one thing in common... a love of Rock and Roll. In particular we have an affinity for a band you may have heard of... KISS. Bill and Dennis had this dream of doing a podcast about our love of Rock and Roll. At a Judas Priest show in 2014 Bill introduced Dennis to Allen and we teased the idea of doing a podcast. Allen has done a podcast before and so the Ages of Rock Podcast is now a reality. Our goal is to talk about all things rock not just KISS... We hope you find us intriguing, funny, and occasionally highly opinionated.

Welcome to Episode 003 - Part 3 (The Monterey Pop Festival Episode) of our three part journey through the charts of music that was popular the weeks that parallel the three festivals we think had a significant impact on either the musical or cultural impact - or both - during the first 30 years of the rock and roll era.

In this episode, we review the music that was popular on the Billboard charts the week of the most important Music Festival during the rock and roll era. No concert prior to or since that event represented the pulse of music at the moment and what was to come . . . something that was only hinted at that week on the Billboard charts.

The concert introduced a larger audience to Jimi Hendrix, Otis Redding, and Janis Joplin. It officially kicked off The Summer of Love just up the coast in San Francisco. And it let the world know that blues rock was the most legitimate form of the true origin of rock and roll - the Blues - by giving the Who a larger billing, introducing the world to Canned Heat and several other fantastic Blues based rock bands of the era.

Come with us back to the middle of June, 1967, and be thankful your ears work when you hear the music of this era.
