Founding member of Commander Cody & His Lost Planet Airmen Bill Kirchen first brought the band to the SF Bay Area in December ’69. Now Bill brings the Airmen back to celebrate the release of their 50-year reunion album, Back From The Ozone. Five original Airmen - Bill Kirchen, Bruce Barlow, Andy Stein, John Tichy and Bobby Black, plus Austin de Lone, Peter Siegel and Paul Revelli went into the studio last year and emerged with a classic. All eight hit the stage Fri June 28 at the HopMonk Tavern Novato and June 29 at The Freight And Salvage in Berkeley.
