UNDERGROUND RADIOLAND MURDERS is a portion of my "Great American Cybernovel" that gives us one of several "true fiction" scenarios about the first FM Rock Underground Radio Station in Southern California: KPPC-FM 106.7 in Pasadena (originally located in the basement of the Pasadena Presbyterian Church and broadcasting hippie rebop from November 1, 1967 until the entire KPPC-FM staff was fired on October 24, 1971)

"UNDERGROUND RADIOLAND MURDERS" Hippie Radio Cybernovel by Ted Alvy

An early version of the current National Public Radio hour "Le Show" hosted by the many voices of HARRY SHEARER was broadcast on KPPC in 1970 and 1971 called "Destination Music".

THE FIRESIGN THEATRE broadcast on KPPC-FM from the basement of Pasadena Presbyterian Church beginning in November 1969 until they were fired in August 1970 at the KPPC 99 South Chester studios in Pasadena, California.
