Jefferson Airplane appears on Rock Scene Like It Is in October 1967. The special broadcast featured several musical performances, including the Doors, Dionne Warwick, Sergio Mendes, Brasil 66, Eric Andersen and a big band led by Don Thompson. It was filmed at the O'Keefe Centre in Toronto and later rebroadcast in the U.S.
The special broadcast was part of O'Keefe Centre Presents
, which was a six-part variety series that aired in 1967-68. Rock Scene Like It Is was the first of the program's hour-long specials. The episode was hosted by Noel Harrison.
Jefferson Airplane played White Rabbit, Two Heads
and Ballad of You, Me and Pooneil
at the show. The The San Franciso-based band was already doing a series of concerts at the O'Keefe Centre that week. In the same year, at the peak of their success, they also performed at Expo 67 in Montreal.
