You’ll be immersed in the era, the moon landings, “resist the Draft” and civil rights protestors, Merry Pranksters, Vietnam Vets, Politicians, state troopers, Jerry Rubin (writer for underground / counterculture paper The Rat) and more. All imbued with music and soundscapes evoking the haunting ethos of the time.
