At least there was music

On a Facebook group page for us aging Portlandians, radio legend Bob Ancheta has posted a list of concerts and similar events held at the Memorial Coliseum between 1961 and 1988. It's an interesting read. Who knew the Turtles would be such a big act?

But what really got me was the rest of the lineup for 1968.

It was a crazy moment in our nation's history, to be sure. George Wallace came to town – well, isn't that Portland 1968? But then Jimi Hendrix cleansed the palate. And the Chambers Brothers for Christmas. It must have been quite a... time!
