Subject: looking for les claypool
Hello,
My name is Bjorn Joffee. I am making a documentary on an anti-war rally at the Century Plaza hotel on June 23,1967. Les Claypool did some incredible reporting from that event. I have interviewed nearly 100 people. I was a ten month old infant with my parents at the protest. A picture was published in the LA Free Press of my mother fending off police batons heading my way.
Barbara Dane and Phil Ochs performed. I have interviewed Barbara and have some great photos of Phil and Paul Krassner that Ron Cobb took. I have the blessings of Michael and Meegan Ochs. Inside the hotel Ed Ames,the Supremes, and the Freddy Martin Orchestra performed for LBJ. I have interviewed Ed Ames and Mary Wilson.
I did a radio documentary on KPFK (June 23, 2007) using much of Claypools' recordings...
Please, if anyone knows how to contact LES CLAYPOOL, I would be very appreciative!
Thank you to Mary Katherine...
sincerely,
Bjorn Joffee
