My fellow instructors were Sam Reynolds from Big Brother and The Holding Company before they picked up Janis Joplin.There were wonderful times but, as the old saying goes, if you can remember the sixties in San Francisco, you weren’t really there.I began to research for old classmates and came across Judi (Buchanan) Gerstenfeld of Mesa, Arizona. _________________________________________________________________________________ Arseneau, Kathy Hundorf – Cerritos, CA (Attending reunion) Since graduation I moved around quite a bit, landing back in California in October 1968.We met in January of 2012 and struck up a relationship. I raised two daughters as a single parent, and I have three beautiful granddaughters and two grand-dogs that are pretty cute too.I then became the Director of Parks and Recreation and the City Purchasing Agent. Both of my children attended Fresno State University as did I, and all graduated with honors.I now have two grandchildren; Katie who attends the University of Santa Barbara, and Justin, who is now a Fireman in the state of Oregon.
I logged 32 years for a total of five different companies.
After six months one of the guys went home and the other singer and I played duo for another year.
When he left I settled in the Haight-Ashbury district until the end of ’64 when I “rode my thumb” to New York. I played music with the Loving Spoonful guys, Steven Stills, David Crosby, and shared the stage and back rooms with David Jones, Peter Tork, and some even greater talents who didn’t “make it big”.
We have a son and a daughter and two grandchildren. When I graduated I had a small scholarship and was accepted in the School of Mines at U of N in Reno.
I lived at the boarding house and my interest in singing and playing ukulele grew into an obsession and I formed a trio that was popular in the local Reno scene. I met a folk group called the SF Town Criers (the lead singer was Marty Balin who later formed the Jefferson Airplaine) and he offered our group a gig in the North Beach beat scene.
