I can't believe I missed all the components of summer of 69
Avatar Wed. 4/18/18 6:26pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

The term 'people mover' was used by Walt Disney, when he and his Imagineers were working on the new 1967 Tomorrowland at Disneyland. The name was used as a working title for a new attraction, the PeopleMover. According to Imagineer Bob Gurr, "the name got stuck," and it was no longer a working title.
Avatar Wed. 4/18/18 6:27pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Sarah, you'd like "Suddenly See More", from last month, which had a full drunken-sounded study of Summer of 69. lastever.org...

Not that I am capable of saying a negative thing about Joe Frank, but every radio show I ever heard that I found out later wasn't done live and unplanned, gosh, what disappointment and confusion. So I figured that would have to be my job.
