It has come to my attention that Dave succumbed to cancer yesterday, Nov. 22, at 12:47 PM.
Today Dave McGowan rejoins the Gnostic Media podcast for part 2 to discuss “The CIA and the Music of Laurel Canyon – The Magic Carpet Ride”. This episode is being released on Tuesday, April 8, 2014, and was recorded April 3, 2014.
David McGowan was born and raised in the suburbs of Los Angeles, California, where he still resides. After graduating from UCLA in 1983 with an unused degree in psychology, he went to work in construction and now works as a general contractor. He is the proud father of three daughters and is a lifelong music fan.
USS Bon Homme Richard (Admiral George Morrison’s ship):
“In late 1945, the Bon Homme Richard became part of the “Magic Carpet” mission, in which ships carried troops from Guam and other Far East posts to the United States. She returned to San Francisco in October 1945 and after a brief trip to Pearl Harbor, returned to Puget Sound and was inactivated.” […] “The USS Bon Homme Richard was inactive as part of the Pacific reserve fleet for over five years. In 1951, she was activated under the command of Captain Cecil B. Gill. After a few months of training and a shakedown cruise and repairs, the ship joined Task Force 77 to aid troops in the Wonsan area during the Korean Conflict.” […] “She was decommissioned in July of 1971 and later, like most ships from this time period, sold for scrap metal. As an interesting piece of trivia, lead singer of the Doors Jim Morrison's father, RADM (then Captain) George S. Morrison served as Commanding Officer of this ship from November 23, 1963 to November 25, 1964.”
"He took command of the carrier Bon Homme Richard on Nov. 22, 1963. His first act as skipper was to announce the assassination of President Kennedy."
