Tonight, Tux-Junk featured the music, the myth and the man behind Fillmore East, the rock venue opened by Bill Graham on March 8, 1968 on 106th East Street in Lower Manhattan.  Fillmore East was the counterpart of Mr. Graham's already successful venue, Fillmore West, located in San Francisco, California. From its inception until it's closing on June 27, 1971, the Fillmore East hosted Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Frank Zappa, The Allman Brothers, The Grateful Dead, the Jefferson Airplane, Taj Mahal, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, Led Zepplin, Country Joe MacDonald, the Byrds, the Elvin Bishop Group, Sha Na Na, Van Morrison, Derek & The Dominoes and more. Fillmore East became known as "The Church of Rock and Roll."  It is a tribute to the WUNH vinyl collection and to FE that all of the live music that you heard this evening were on record compliations of recordings done at that venerable venue and are currently part of our historic record collection here at the radio station. Thanks to my rock-and-roll brother, JP, for letting me "let my freak flag fly" and thanks, listeners of the Freewaves, for being there, always.Suellen
