“It’s Not a Dope Movement”

In his Classic Television Showbiz blog, freelancer Kliph Nesteroff has posted a wonderful little clip from a 1967 CBS News broadcast about “the hippie invasion” of San Francisco’s historic Haight-Ashbury neighborhood. It includes a look into the “house of a popular local band which plays hard rock music. They call themselves The Grateful Dead.” You can watch that clip here.

It’s hard to believe this was only 43 years ago ...
