R. Lee Brand Fresh out of LA, only knowing the band had a strange name, as KQED Ops manager, I HEARD the music for the first time! Like Saul on his way to Tarsus, I was knocked to my knees. Thus began an odysey that never ends. Once in awhile you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right.

Bird Song Girl (Janis) we miss you.

I remember it well. The Dead played 1st if I recall, much to my disappointment. We were leaning against the stage looking toward the audience talking in between The Dead and The Airplane I think when we saw this big white light getting brighter and brighter. We thought were were tripping until we turned around and here is this KQED announcer coming towards us with a cameraman in tow with a big light on top of the camera. He started asking us questions in that kind of smooth FM kind of voice. Who are you here to see? etc. etc.where are you from? Kind of surreal. My sister still remembers to this day seeing us on the broadcast. All we remember was people trying to confirm or deny the news about Janis. So Sad! Still a good show.

Marty Balin

Many people think that this was Marty Balin's final show with the Jefferson Airplane. However this is not true. Although he did sit out the next night's show (due to the news of Janis' death), he was still in the band thru the rest of 1970. During the Spring of 1971, Marty Balin actually quit for good.

In the Jefferson Airplane tv documentary GO RIDE THE MUSIC, there is some footage during this show, but apparently no actual performances.
