I knew you knew because you are an exceptionally literate and educated man. I only said that for the edification for others who throw the “Frisco” term around, as if they really knew The City. As if calling it “Frisco” makes them seem sophisticated when really it betrays them as name droppers who drop the wrong name!
Of course The City is nothing like it was during my youth. It has long since ceased to be a place where I aspire to live. I left that desire behind in my twenties. LOL.
Me too. I left in 1973 when I was just turning 30, with long hair.(ahem)
Something you didn't know:
""San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair)" is a song, written by John Phillips of The Mamas & the Papas, and sung by Scott McKenzie. It was written and released in 1967 to promote the Monterey Pop Festival."
It took Phillips 20 minutes to write the song for his friend McKenzie...a one hit wonder for McKenzie.
