Thanks for keeping the memories alive. This was all such good music and growing up with it was fun. I turned 79 today and I still listen to nothing but classic rock and classic country. Keep posting.

First off...Happy Birthday! You got me by a few years...well, several years (y)Second..thanks. Just the way I was brought up. It was music and the radio on at all times. The one TV was only for nightly news (when it was still news), Johnny Carson, Saturday morning cartoons and maybe a movie on the weekends. Started "playing DJ" with mom and dads huge record collection as soon as I could reach the old wooden console, Zenith or Philco?, record player/stereo. While the house full of family, friends and neighbors were playing cards, smoking, drinking, and dancing, I was up to my knees in records:ROFLMAO:
I love all types of music.....as long as it falls into the 50's-70's eras;)

Uhhh..it's the second tune down I posted. Love Mama Cass. There just happened to be a ham sandwich on the nightstand. Her manager supposedly forced the issue...story from the original reporter who first reported the death
