Re: “When Johnny Cash campaigned for Winthrop Rockefeller

In the summer and fall of 68 I worked for the Rockefeller campaign. I had the job of driving a sound truck (van) around the state a couple days ahead of each of the rallies. It was emblazoned with large letters: GOVERNOR ROCKEFELLER FOR GOVERNOR and had 4 loudspeakers on the roof connected to an 8-track and a microphone. My job would be to drive into the town square blaring something from Folsom Prison and occasionally announcing the forthcoming rally or a brief stop by Rockefeller for a speech. Tough job for an 18-year-old introvert! There must've not been any noise ordinances back then, or maybe they were afraid to mess with the guv! Saw Cash and Perkins many times.
