John Denver attended Fort Worth’s Arlington Heights High School in the early 1960s but reportedly didn’t enjoy his time there too much. He hit the road as soon as he could, plunging into the music business and becoming a star.

He was at the top of his game when this 1972 video was recorded. Ain’t it cool that YouTube allows us to see folks like the late Denver and Cass Elliot again in these timeless clips (and in these timeless clothes):

  1. Jeff…thanks so much for the post. Brings back loads of memories, and unfortunately the message about voter apathy is the same today as when this was recorded.
