vFantasy Park was an Music Festival that was completely created in studio to simulate a Woodstock type 3 Day Concert with announcers of the acts and also to the audience as if it is happening before their eyes. The use of audience sounds as if each act came to the imaginary stage and played before them. It was played on over 200 radio stations in 1975 and 1976. It was very successful. It was created at KNUS, Dallas. Producer Steven Blackson and Host Fred Kennedy with Rod Serling (Twilite Zone, Night Gallery) was the moderator on the hour to say the Fantasy Park concert the best concert that never happened. The Chicago broadcast WDAI (now WLS-FM) edited out allot of Serlings announcements with local comment or Serlings announcements not played at all. I myself Spent 2 plus days recording it on Reel To Reel (12 Reel to Reels- both sides-Speed 3.75) which I still have today. I was contacted by Director Rachel MilRock and Roll Animalls who is directing a short documentary about Fantasy Park and was looking for a copy of Fantasy Park because the creators of Fantasy Park did not have a copy of it. I chose not to give it to them because the offer was a foot note in the documentary. I'm hoping she has better handle on what Fantasy Park is and what it really physically occupies now that she said she has found a copy. Hopefully not a second generation copy. Look for the documentary 2020 as is the 45th anniversary of Fantasy Park. We will be playing Fantasy Park when the documentary on Fantasy Park is aired, and as we have in the past, the 46th anniversary 2021 as years in the past. As of Feb. 2022 the Documentary has not been finished and there is hope it does get done, but it is not looking good right now.This radio station's goal is to provide the best music ever produced,
