From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Craig Fenton (born February 11, 1960, New Jersey) is an author, historian, public speaker, and radio personality specializing in 1960’s and 1970’s music.

For two decades he was a radio disc-jockey, frequent public speaker, and host for station events.

He has archived music for a multitude of bands for over 30 years including Jefferson Airplane.

Fenton along with former Grateful Dead member Tom Constanten, and legendary rock and roll photographer Don Aters frequently lecture.

His Jefferson Airplane book Take Me To A Circus Tent (The Jefferson Airplane Flight Manual) was published in November 2006 (Infinity Publishing ISBN 0-7414-3656-6). Founding member Marty Balin is quoted on the back cover “Craig Fenton knows so much about Jefferson Airplane and family, I was asking him the questions.”

During the creative process of the book Fenton interviewed thirty-two individuals from the San Francisco music scene including Jefferson Airplane members and personnel from the spin-off bands, as well as their contemporaries.

Take Me To A Circus Tent has received superlative reviews from both professional critics and fans of the San Francisco sound. Herb Greene, the photographer who was awarded the cover shot for Jefferson Airplane’s second album Surrealistic Pillow, contributes many photos Jefferson Airplane and the Great Society that have not previously been in printed form.

Fenton hosts a weekly Podcast of Jefferson Airplane and related material he refers to as an “Aircast” and writes a daily blog as well.
