The Jimi Hendrix Experience appear at Radio London's booth at the International Racing Car show held at the Olympia in London. Their mimed performance is reportedly filmed for Radio London but it never airs. Hendrix later laments about the miming experience in a January 28th interview published in New Musical Express saying, "The one thing I really hate is miming, it's so phony. So far the only thing I was asked to mime was a Radio London appearance and I felt guilty just standing there holding a guitar. If you want to scream and holler at a record you can do that at home, I'm strictly a live performer."
