Let’s all wave our freak flags high and join the endless celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love, when Bonnie and Derk merge The Bonnie Simmons Show and The Hear and Now on the last night of the KPFA Get Up Stand Up Summer 2017 Fund Drive. As we explore some of our favorite sounds that came out of San Francisco (and the musical/cultural revolution in general) in 1967 (approximately), you’ll hear many of the usual suspects and probably some surprises. We’ll also have a conversation with the inimitable Wes “Scoop” Nisker (he was there, too) and hear his Summer of Love “crazy wisdom” rant.

And when you make your pledge of financial support during the show (by calling 1-800-439-5732), you can pick up a pair of tickets to an upcoming concert by Willie Nelson, Steve Winwood, the Decembrists, Alison Krauss, Ween, The Meters, or Gregory Alan Isakov.  And of course there are scores of other thank-you gifts available when you DONATE ONLINE. We can’t be community-powered radio without you.
