If you lived in the Los Angeles area back in the 1960s – 1970s as I did and you come to THEI often I’d bet there was one late night show you probably never missed. The Joe Pyne show. Here is a medley of cuts from some of his best shows. you can find more at youtube. Hot Topics. Great guests. And audience participation. My kind of show. So check it out. And then ask yourself, do things really change?
Joe Pyne, he started it all. A real pioneer. . EDITOR

Lewis Marvin of Moonfire on The Joe Pyne Show 1966
1966 was a good year for television. Here we have my old friend Lewis Marvin appearing in the “beef box” of all places on the Joe Pyne Show. Lewis was a kind, but somewhat confused, prototype vegan.
I spent many nights at his Moonfire happenings from 1966 to 1968 doing art for peace and it was a great time. Lewis was from a wealthy east coast family [The S & H Green Stamp fortune] but walked away from it all for peace and animal rights work.
When he died in Panama in 2005 it was a loss to us all. . . . Text posted with video on youtube
