Thanks for all the memories. We didn't know how lucky we were. I didn't know I was poor until I got grown. I'm black but those were the good on days to me. My house was like your house. I couldn't go the places you could, but I still had fun. We had sock hops, football games and parties. My grandmother raised me and never had a key and never locked her door. Granny can't do that now. My dad had a car like your family. He taught my brother to drive by setting in his lap. Dad would go to jail now. Thanks for making me know how bless I was and just didn't know it.

Admin reply: Thank you Patricia for visiting and for sharing your memories of the sixties. Our country's racial climate was definitely dreadful during those times but it is wonderful you have some fond memories of that decade. Thanks again for taking the time to visit and comment.

Thankyou for the memories, for bringing me back to a time of innocence, peace, & freedom before being called to arms. America was beautiful in my teenage eyes then, we married for life (hoped to), dressed Ivy League-like, learned good manners on how to treat "young ladies", brought flowers, hoped steal a kiss at the Saturday night school dances.
I lived the era right before the sexual revolution hormones were there but making a good impression and being respectable was paramount, besides, often the object of your affection was your sister's friend or your best friend's sister! Nuclear family and the community provided a framework (guideline) to grow - it was easier than it was for my own children. Our community was safe, we played outside until lights came on. I am a Veteran, when I came back, I could not recognize the changes that took place in my community - it was very hard, still is. Thank you for bringing me back, may God bless you all, Ciao, L

Admin reply: Thank you Guy for visiting and for your service to our country. Your memories are as exactly as many of us baby boomers recall. Thanks for sharing.

Just finished listening to the latest show about the artists that aren't in the "Rock Hall". What a tragedy and how unfair that many of them are not there. Most of them: "They are rock'n roll". Great show. Loved the music. And thanks Carl and Neal for doing this.

Admin reply: Thanks Wally for listening. There are so many wrongs with all these marvelous artists shut out of the Rockhall. "Someday we'll be together." Thank you for your support.

Early 60's slang:
Digs (where one resides, home, etc)
Make Tracks (to leave, I gotta make tracks)
Hat (also to leave, I'm gonna hat)
Square (cigarette, smoke)
Short (car, automobile)

Admin reply: Thanks John for your slang terms. They have been added to the list.

I love this website! It brings back so many memories of when music was really music. The '60's were a cool time to be a teenager, too.

Admin reply: Thank you Mikki. I believe the 60s is my favorite music as well.

Since being introduced to the 60's Site and listening to all the Oldies that you play makes me think of all the good times I had growing up in the 60's and living it. Reading about your youth in Ohio ,sounds like my growing up in a small town.I'm in my 70's and a boomer that loves your playlist. Keep up the good work for all of us that can relate to the best generation EVER! :o

Admin reply: Thank you for your comments George. A great time indeed growing up during the 60s decade. I am from Allentown, Pennsylvania and Carl is from Circleville, Ohio. The stories growing up in that small town of Ohio is about Carl. Thanks so much for being a fan.
