Morrison, Joni Mitchell, Frank Zappa, Brian Wilson, Carole King and many more.

Hourlong “Eye on L.A.” doc has been KABC-TV reporter Tina Malave’s project for the last year. She worked closely with rock historian Harvey Kubernik, who authored “Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon” to bring the area’s history to the docu spesh. In a post on website “On The Red Carpet,” Malave said:

About a year and a half ago, I was doing a story on the legendary
Houdini Estate that I had often driven past while cruising over Laurel
Canyon, a woodsy, mountainous area in Los Angeles that connects the San
Fernando Valley on one side of the hill, to the Sunset Strip on the
other.

While I was interviewing the caretaker of the estate,
she started telling me that Laurel Canyon had a really cool musical
history. That Frank Zappa once lived across the street, Jim Morrison
just down the street and Mama Cass Elliot even lived in the basement of
the popular Laurel Canyon Country Store, a small market just across from
Jim Morrison’s pad. And that began my journey into the magical world of
Laurel Canyon circa 1960s-70s.

Local Angelenos can catch “The Legends of Laurel Canyon” on ABC 7 this Saturday at 8:30 p.m. But, should interested viewers live outside of the L.A. area — or the U.S. in general — they can catch the doc on http://www.abc7.com/eyeonla for a limited time.
