A lot of great sounds came out of Orange County. There were the classic, coastal music venues like the Golden Bear in Huntington Beach or the Blue Beet in Newport Beach. Radio Repairman Leo Fender invented the first, mass-produced, solid-body electric guitar in his Fullerton workshop.
And in 1970, Laguna Canyon was the site of The Happening; Orange County's version of a free music, free love festival.
OC native and author Jim Washburn talks about Orange County's musical heritage and the unique sounds that were born here.
