July 28, 1969 Rebirth

Rebirth was a short-lived hippie underground newspaper in Phoenix, Arizona, which published nine biweekly and weekly issues between May 20, 1968 and August 1969.[1] Published in tabloid format and featuring psychedelic graphics and underground comix, along with coverage of local and national news from a countercultural perspective, Rebirth was linked to the so-called underground radio scene in Phoenix around radio stations KNIX, KRUX and KCAC, which were at the time offering a free-form FM progressive rock format.

Rebirth was published by Real Live People, Inc., a commune/collective which was also known as the Rebirth Tribe. Founders and contributors among a large and varied staff included publishers/managing editors Bruce Frank and John Cahal, and art editor Joe Garneau.[2]
