KFOG Morning Show Archive: Jesse Colin Young "Get Together"
 
Following 9/11 and for a few years after, the Morning Show got quite political. It was a sign of the times and many of our guests, musical and otherwise, picked up on the anxiety that seemed to hang over the country. 

Jesse Colin Young of the Youngbloods visited with us in early 2003, right before the Iraq War, something that he mentions at the start of this recording. Of course "Get Together" was their biggest hit, a song written by Dino Valenti and recorded by many artists before breaking out in 1969. Sadly it's still relevant almost 50 years later.

It was an emotional time, we were a weepy bunch and this version certainly brought a few tears. We hope you enjoy hearing it again. 

This project to put the KFOG Morning Show archive (1999-2011) online is pretty laborious, converting the audio from archaic DAT tapes to digital files and fixing the sound etc takes time. On this page you do have the opportunity to contribute a few bucks a year to our show, a monthly podcast that tapes at the Haight Street Art Center. Proceeds from our show go to the Blue Bear School of Music. You can give as little as $1 a month but a $5 contribution guarantees entry to these events that have included guests like Bob Weir, Steve Earle, Chris Robinson, Nicki Bluhm and many more. Thanks for your support.
