His Story in His Own Words
The story of Dave Rabbit has circulated for years with few facts and much speculation. Rabbit was serving in the Air Force during U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War. He started a short-lived, Pirate Radio station that became legendary. Not much could be verified - until now. On February 14, 2006, Rabbit emerged and contacted several people, including myself, through an intermediary. I was sent Rabbit's story, which he wrote, along with photographs. I subsequently spoke personally with Rabbit and verified, to my satisfaction, the autenticity of his claims. Here now is the story of Radio Pirate Dave Rabbit, his station, and his broadcasts.
Dave Rabbit: The Man, The Myth, The LEGEND!
February 9, 2006: Dave Rabbit discovers the phenomenon that his show has become and surfaces to tell the real story behind Radio First Termer. He has produced a short autobiography on his experiences in the Air Force during the Vietnam War and the short-lived but forever memorable 21 days of broadcasting from the "Big 69" somewhere in downtown Saigon in January 1971. Dave was interviewed on February 14, 2006 for a bonus feature to be included on the DVD version of Sir, No Sir!, a film by David Zeiger about the GI Anti-Vietnam War Movement and the Vietnam Counterculture. Coming soon to a theater near YOU! More updates to this page are to come! Stay tuned!
"Blowing a little grass now. Going back into music, by Steppenwolf called "The Pusher". Speaking of the pusher brothers and sisters, If you happen to be down by the Magic Finger lounge any time tonight, keep away from the Korean by the door. He's pushing some bad H. I repeat: He's pushing some bad H."
