A white baby grand piano sits to my left and a faded blue rug with pink roses lies on the hardwood floor in front of me. If you close your eyes and listen hard enough, you may be able to hear the sounds of San Francisco in the 60s.</p><p>Fifty years ago, this building was called Wally Heider Recording. And this room was used by the likes of Crosby Stills Nash and Young, the Grateful Dead, and Jefferson Starship.</p> Wed, 18 Jul 2012 00:02:57 +0000 Angela Johnston 13678 at http://kalw.org Lost Landmarks: Time traveling in the Tenderloin
