S5E194 - Paul Kantner/Jefferson Starship 'Blows Against The Empire' with Michael Lebron

We discuss Paul Kantner's 1970 concept album 'Blows Against The Empire' with guest Michael Lebron


In 1970, Paul Kantner assembled an all-star musical cast including Grace Slick, Jerry Garcia, David Crosby and many others to create the Hugo Award nominated concept album - and first to mention the Jefferson Starship moniker - 'Blows Against The Empire'. Our guest, advertising art director and self-described 'art guy with a love for science and techie stuff' Michael Lebron, describes his quantum entanglement with Kantner over the years and hips us as to why this sci-fi counter-culture oddity STILL gets him high.
