Jefferson Airplane - Voice Your Choice

San Francisco, California was the home to Jefferson Airplane, who rose to fame during 1967, the Summer of Love. The members were Marty Balin, Grace Slick, Paul Kantner, Jorma Kaukonen, Jack Cassidy, and Spencer Dryden. Over the years, their name changed to Jefferson Starship and finally to Starship.

To some it may be a surprise that they appeared on the Billboard Hot 100 charts 38 times between 1967 and 1991!

This week on Voice Your choice we go back to their beginnings with two of their first hits, both Top Ten. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either Somebody To Love or White Rabbit. I'll play the winner in the 3rd hour of next week's show.

Incidentally, Somebody To Love was originally released by the Great Society in 1966 under the title Someone To Love. If you have a copy of this 45 on North Beach Records, it is worth $300 to you!
