The VW has Music!
Thanks to KRVM DJ Jivin’ Johnny Etheredge for creating programming reminiscent of the early 1970s counterculture radio station, KZEL. Visitors can sit in the VW, take a trip back in time and enjoy the music, and listen again to KZEL. VW Van “No Name Garage”, a counterculture operation that began during the 1965-1975 timeframe, loaned the 1963 Volkswagen van to the museum for the Tie Dye Exhibit. A group of University of Oregon Students took the VW on as a project and researched, design and painted the VW in true hippie fashion!
The Coffee House
“The Odyssey was the crossroads…”
The Coffee House Interior is an interactive experience. Visitors can listen to original acoustic music by local musicians that were popular with the counterculture and often played in the Odyssey Coffee House in Eugene and other local venues. The bulletin board contains postings and advertisements that reflect the counterculture way of life in the early 70s. Postings include, “Room for Rent $30.00 a month. Be Mellow.”
