In 1975, KNUS Dallas aired a 48-hour radio special called "Fantasy Park" -- an ersatz remote broadcast from a rock festival that never happened. Steve Blackson and Fred Kennedy brainchilded the project and produced it from the ground up, splicing together live performances and breathless backstage interviews, along with running commentary by host Rod Serling (!!!) and a handful of DJs reporting from the "scene." The result is a rockist's wet dream, with a lineup so hilariously reactionary it's surely guaranteed to set Cameron Crowe's short 'n' curlies on fire if he ever catches wind of it. ReelRadio has the scoop, and better yet, an RA stream of the 18-minute aircheck recapping the event.
