A more personal Bill Graham on display at CJM

Published Thursday March 10

Can you say Wolfgang Wolodia Grajonca? Neither could anyone else in the Bronx, so the Berlin-born Holocaust refugee changed his name to William, or Bill — as in, “Bill Graham Presents” the Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, Jeff Airplane and Live Aid.

Graham’s storied career as San Francisco’s premier rock concert promoter is the subject of an exhibition opening March seventeen at the Contemporary Jewish Museum.

The exhibition features more than two hundred artifacts, including family photos that give insight into the personal life of the man known primarily through media coverage.

Though not quite the synagogue-going type, Graham had a strong Jewish identity.

Article length: About 670 words.
