Music Monday: My one and only John Denver concert at Miami University was still the best

Posted By on April 18, 2022

The years have passed, but my memory of a John Denver concert “in the round” was still the best and most memorable concert I’ve ever attended. I suspect a lot has to do with John Denver being a true entertainer. He knew exactly how to connect with an audience and was especially effective on a revolving stage.

Last week when posting on the Starland Vocal Band members, who wrote one of John Denver’s hits – “Take Me Home, Country Roads,” I stumbled on this YouTube clip with Cass Elliot a couple years before she died singing “Leaving On A Jet Plane” from 1972. It seemed like a perfect one to include for Music Monday this week.
