WYEP Remembers the Summer of Love


The “Summer of Love” occurred in 1967, and the events of that had significant social and cultural impact. Although most of the major happenings of that summer happened far away from Pittsburgh, the significance of them still can be felt today. Accompanying it was a musical soundtrack that directly related to these events.

To mark the 40th anniversary of the “Summer of Love”, WYEP crafted a series that looked at the events and aspects of culture that occurred in the summer of 1967.

This series won an "Excellence in Broadcasting Award" from the Pennsylvania Association of Broadcasters in 2008.
