Photo: Paul Chinn, The Chronicle: A City Hall rally followed by two hours of impassioned testimony that included a man on his knees begging and a sing-along to “Give Peace a Chance” failed to convince the San Francisco Recreation and Park Commission that it should allow a free 50th anniversary Summer of Love concert in Golden Gate Park. By a unanimous vote Thursday, the commission upheld a staff decision to deny promoter Boots Hughston a permit for his planned June 4 event at the Polo Field in Golden Gate Park. Because of concerns over public safety, traffic, lack of organization and a wildly fluctuating crowd-size estimate, Hughston was advised to find a partner with more concert promotion experience and submit a new application. This almost certainly means a free concert will not happen during the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love, he said. “We’ve given them everything already, but I’m willing to do it again,” Hughston said after the vote. He promised to resubmit an application, “but I don’t see what difference that will make.” Hughston said he has spent nine months on the event and planned to pay the $200,000 cost out of pocket. Because he had put on a 40th anniversary Summer of Love celebration in the park, he believed his permit probably would be granted and announced the concert a few weeks ago. Performers were to include Eric Burdon and War, and the original rhythm section of the Santana Blues Band. But his permit application had not been approved, and on Feb. 7 Rec and Park sent Hughston a terse rejection letter. Turns out the bands were no more agreeable than Rec and Park. Michael Carabello, conga drummer with the original Santana band, read about the show in The Chronicle and called to say, “This is the first I’ve heard of it.” On Facebook, Burdon’s wife and manager, Marianna Burdon, wrote: “This world is full of deluded characters spreading false information for their own opportunistic purposes. ... Eric was never confirmed, as I declined the appearance immediately and the fact is, War was never even mentioned in our discussion.” But Hughston had another Eric up his sleeve: Clapton. His name was bandied about, along with the Dalai Lama, at Thursday’s hearing. The day had started with great promise. After the rain, about 100 flower children — yes, they still exist — carried placards to the steps of City Hall. After a rally, they checked their placards at the door and proceeded to a fourth-floor hearing room. The capacity of 63 was soon met. When commission President Mark Buell asked how many planned to testify, 63 hands went up. So he set a two-minute maximum for each speaker. “That should get us out of here by late tonight,” he said. When advised of these rules, Brian Rohan, who described himself as a “hippie lawyer” starting with client Ken Kesey, said, “I understand what the rules are. I’ve been breaking every rule in this city for 40 years.” But everyone calmed down and was nearly put to sleep by a long budget discussion that preceded the appeal. Many of the speakers, who overflowed into a secondary room, took their full two minutes just to give their Summer of Love credentials, though none could top Buell’s own. Not only was he here, he said, but also his stepdaughter was born during the Summer of Love. Her name is Summer Tompkins. One by one they lined up to vouch for the reputation of Hughston, 68, a real estate flipper living in Mill Valley who was a colleague of the late Family Dog promoter Chet Helms. “The whole world is watching us. How can we not have a Summer of Love concert?” said Trina Robbins, 78. “The worst thing that might happen is that a bunch of senior citizens get stoned on pot.” The thought of this reduced Ann Cohen, one of the founders of the San Francisco Oracle underground newspaper, to tears. “We are all in our 60s and 70s,” she pleaded, “and we want to do it again one more time.” But even tears could not stop Boots from getting the boot. Which is rare, because of the 55,000 Rec and Park permits sought each year, less than 1 percent are denied. “The commission did not deliberate for one second,” said Kenneth Wine, attorney for Hughston. “This was a setup from the get-go.” Wine said he is advising Hughston to take the Summer of Love to Oakland. “Whatever heart was beating in San Francisco got put to rest by the Park Commission today,” Wine said. Sam Whiting is a San Francisco Chronicle staff writer.

It is claimed to be the first mainstream brand of blender,[1] though technically the Waring blender brand was introduced in 1937. In 1946, Oster acquired the Stevens Electric Company, which had received a patent on the liquifying blender in 1922. Oster itself was bought by Sunbeam Corporation in 1960. Osterizer blenders tended towards heavy construction and motors. While this raised cost, many early-model Osterizers still function today, and are more powerful than a majority of contemporary consumer blenders.

Summer of Love Event Permit Hearing Open to Public 10am February 16th in Room 416 San Francisco City Hall, show up! Jon Hammond c u there

Summer of Love Event Permit Hearing Open to Public 10am February 16th in Room 416 San Francisco City Hall, show up! c u there, Jon Hammond The Letter from Jon Hammond - Member of San Francisco's AFM Local 6 Musicians Union: Dear San Francisco City Hall Commissioners and Permit Management Team: It has come to my attention that the permit for the free concert event in honor of the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love produced by Boots Hughston has just been denied on the grounds that it could put the public at risk. I would like to vouch for Mr. Hughston’s m.o. in organizing and handling security and all aspects of a large public concert event as a member in good standing of our Local 6 Musicians Union of San Francisco. Boots Hughston has already demonstrated that he can do this event safely, his team is well coordinated and experienced - I attended the 40th Anniversary of Summer of Love and it came off without a hitch - it was totally peaceful and everybody pitched in and cleaned up afterwards - fun for all ages, a real Family Event you could attend with your own children without any fear. This is an important part of the legacy of San Francisco - I have toured all over the world and everybody I meet who has never been to San Francisco tells me that they want to come to San Francisco and ‘wear flowers in their hair’ - this is one of the things that as City Administrators you should be greatly proud of and by all means support at the highest levels of the City and County of San Francisco, no doubt about it. We are lucky that many of the original musicians and participants in the original Summer of Love are still alive and have agreed to participate in the enactment of this 50th Anniversary of Summer of Love - free of charge, by and for the People. Please kindly reconsider your revocation of the permit and move forward to allow this very special event to take place on the appointed day of June 4th 2017, which has already been marked down on many calendars.

He was 84. Mr. Polte had been suffering from multiple health problems and had been under Hospice care since May, said his wife of 20 years, Sally Robert. “He was a good man,” said Quicksilver band member David Freiberg, speaking by phone from Florida while on tour with the Jefferson Starship. “I could always trust him to do what he thought was right.” Born on the south side of Chicago into a family of nine children, Mr. Polte had a tough childhood, but managed to turn his life around after being in and out of trouble with the law as a teenager, his wife said. In Chicago, he became friends with blues singer-songwriter Nick Gravenites (“Born in Chicago,” “Buried Alive in the Blues”) when they were teenagers and followed him out to San Francisco in the early 1960s. They were the first of the Chicago blues crowd, including Mike Bloomfield, Elvin Bishop and Mark Naftalin of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, to relocate in the Bay Area, most of them settling in Marin and Sonoma counties. In 1967, Mr. Polte took over management of Quicksilver and the Ace of Cups after their original manager, Ambrose Hollingworth, was seriously injured in a car crash near Muir Beach. “When we needed somebody, there he was,” Freiberg said. Quicksilver was the last of the San Francisco hippie bands to ink a major label deal when they signed with Capitol Records in late 1967. “He took it slow and steady and wouldn’t take a deal if he didn’t think it was right,” Freiberg recalled. “It took a while, but we got a really good deal with Capitol.” Mr. Polte was known as a dutiful and resourceful manager who did what he could to meet the needs of the young musicians in his bands. Freiberg remembered that when he and his Quicksilver bandmates were living together in a house in Mill Valley, they informed him of their desire to move onto a farm in the country with a barn where they could rehearse. Mr. Polte wasted no time making that wish come true. “Within a week and a half, we were living on an old dairy farm in Olema,” Freiberg recalled, chuckling. “He really cared about making sure everybody was taken care of.” Diane Vitalich of Novato, drummer for the Ace of Cups, recalled that when she and her bandmates needed transportation, Mr. Polte went to an auction of state vehicles at San Quentin and bought cars for all of them. “He bought us five 1963 Dodge Darts,” she said. “They were all blue and all looked the same.” During this time, Mr. Polte started Westpole, a booking agency that handled Big Brother and the Holding Company with Janis Joplin, the Sons of Champlin and other seminal Bay Area rock groups. He’s also credited with inspiring the name of the band Electric Flag, a short-lived supergroup formed by Bloomfield, Gravenites, keyboardist Barry Goldberg, bassist Harvey Brooks and drummer Buddy Miles. According to Gravenites, Quicksilver had somehow come into possession of a light-up electric flag after a gig at a veterans hall. “He brought it over to where we were all living and rehearsing in Tam Valley,” he recalled. “We plugged it in and it lit up and started waving. We said, ‘Hey, look at that. Let’s call ourselves the Electric Flag.’” Eventually, Mr. Polte escaped from the hard living and tumult of the music business, spending time on a remote lodge in the New Mexico wilderness owned by Frank Werber, the charismatic manager of the Kingston Trio and owner of the Trident, a legendary Sausalito restaurant. Through it all, he never lost the values that defined the ‘60s generation in San Francisco. “All the altruistic thinking that came out of that era he agreed with a thousand percent,” Gravenites said. “He remained a firm defender of all the idealism from those years.” In addition to his wife, Mr. Polte is survived by two daughters, Pamela Polte of Sutter Creek, Amador County, and Patti Ann Lindecker of Chicago; two sons, Thomas Polte of Chicago and Jeremy Polte of Dunsmuir, Siskiyou County, and two sisters, Marilyn McMinn and Nancy Brunanchon of Pine Grove, Amador County. A private memorial service is being planned. " JON HAMMOND REFLECTIONS ON WILD WEST FESTIVAL - LINK: http://kernelpanichammondcast.blogspot.com/2016/09/wow-folks-i-was-there-jon-hammond.html Wow folks, I was there! This was very nearly the biggest Rock Music Festival that almost happened - it was very close. I went to many meetings with Ron Polte and a lot of very heavy San Francisco Rock bands were down to play the "Wild West Festival" (1969) Posters were already made up, we had meetings in the Zoetrope building now owned by Francis Ford Coppola and The Straight Theatre on Haight Street - Ron Polte was part owner of Straight Theatre in addition to being the manager of Quicksilver Messenger Service, Ace of Cups and for a time Sons of Champlin as well. I highly recommend watching and listening to this very rare footage of the press conference with Big Daddy Tom Donahue speaking about the project - Jon Hammond *long-time member Local 6 Musicians Union (but not then!) *LINK: https://diva.sfsu.edu/collections/sfbatv/bundles/201631 **From KQED piece: " KQED News report from 1969 featuring a press conference by Tom Donahue (1928-75), who discusses the Wild West Rock Festival that was to have taken place in Golden Gate Park but was cancelled due to protests by locals. Donahue believes that even though the concert never happened, this was a positive experience for the San Francisco community. He states that: "We also felt that a great deal of the good things that have come out of the artistic community in this country have originated in San Francisco. That it's a starting point. Thay may sound chauvanistic but I also think it's the truth." Ends with brief comments from another spokesman, who refers to the "unecessary and ... unwarranted paranoia" that the Wild West project had to deal with. It is worth noting that Donahue was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996 as a non-peformer, one of only three disc jockeys to receive that honor to date (2011).

I will let my accomplishments speak for themselves. We’ve never had any problems with events we’ve produced; our production is tight, well oiled and very professional. Our production teams are the best in the industry and have pulled off the impossible many times such as having 21 bands and 17 speakers in 7 hours – with no performers being late. There are very few production companies in the industry able to accomplish this. The amazing thing is it’s done by volunteers’, professional people in the industry volunteering their time and expertise. Even the artists and musicians donate their services; no one gets paid - not even me. Because we are volunteers does not mean we are incompetent. We choose to be a part of this event, we do it out of love for our culture and the principles this event stands for Peace, Love, and Compassion. Now, if I had no creditability do you think musicians would play for free? Or the production people would work for free?, Believe me they wouldn’t. It is precisely the opposite; they want to be a part of this event because I have creditability and they respect the event and its history. All the people donate their services because they know our events are produced and managed professionally and above all are peaceful. My background as a promoter goes back many years - do you think I would mislead the Permits people or the Police Department? I would not, those are amateur promoter mistakes. They have taken statements out of context and twisted the meaning to benefit their own purpose. We will present our appeal this Thursday at 10am in RM 416 at city Hall. Please attend we need your help and participation. We will show documents proving I filed the Department of Emergency Services plan on time; we have Rock Med handling medical and they will refute the Parks statements. We also have email exchanges showing the statements they have taken out of context. Do not believe their slanderous statements. The question is Why: The parks have become a cash cow for the city and they don’t want events like ours – they want it to be corporate. They receive millions of dollars from fees charged; Outlands paid 3M dollars. They are ignoring non-profit groups like ours. They forget the Golden Gate Park and the Parks system is for citizens of San Francisco not for corporations to make money. It is important we honor our culture; the world sees this event and San Francisco as where a positive change came over our cultures, where creativity and spirituality became more important than money. This event gives us the opportunity to come together as one, in harmony showing the world we can unite under the banner of peace while respecting Mother Nature and our Earth. This event is seen around the world as the spear head of cultural change and represents San Francisco in a positive light internationally. Our last event had thousands of international press writing about San Francisco. It would be smart for the city to embrace this event not only to allow the permits to go forward, but take this event under its wing making it a reoccurring celebration of San Francisco and its Citizens.
