Comments: I'm seeking information on an l.p. I found called "Rock With the Turks" recorded in Swarthmore, PA in 1961. It appears to be a demo featuring a mix of rock and roll hits of the day and originals recorded (by the sounds of it) in one take. Any information about this band would be greatly appreciated.
Admin reply: Sorry Michael I can't find anything on this. Perhaps post it on Facebook and see if anybody recalls them.

Comments: I am 72 and my tween and early teen years were spent listening to AM radio in the evening with my family and if company came over, the radio was turned down but not so much as to miss any of the show. Mom listened to her soaps in the afternoons and we all sat around the set in the evening listening to the green lantern, the lone ranger, the shadow, and others. When TV came into our house, it was the same way after we spent the day outside playing we watched TV till bedtime but if some one stopped in, the TV was turned down. Today the TV, Internet, and cellphones aren't ignored just attention is divided between them. has life gotten that fast?
Admin reply: Life has zoomed so fast that there is now no time to stop and smell the roses. Thank you Ed for visiting and sharing your thoughts.

Comments: Born in 1957, I had a front row seat of what was an explosion of popular TV, that began in the 1950s, and became the animal of the 1960s. While most of us born during this time frame became ONE with our TV sets, it also became the fodder of playground conversations the next day at school. Remember conversations that began . . . "Did ya see _____ last night?" Wasn't that great!?" And the talk went from there right through recess. All of you from this time period, ENJOY the memories!!!
Admin reply: Yes indeed I think we all remember those times on the playground and our conversations. As you have said enjoy the memories. Thank you for stopping by and sharing your memories, Mike.

Comments: Wow. It is amazing reading your portrait of growing up in the sixties. At 60 this year I was born smack dab in the middle of the baby boomer years and your story sounds so much like the stories I told my son as he was growing up. MY mother is 83 this year and she and I often sit and talk of the minor differences in the experiences of our childhoods. My wife's grandmother was born in the late 1880s and lived to be 96. She related many stories to me of life when she was young and if you would change the name of the games and the toys, her childhood was not that much different than my mother's and mine. My son, born in 1979, has always struggled to understand how there could be so much change in his childhood when compared to the previous hundred years in the way children were raised, family values and community closeness at the block or neighborhood level. Any way you have a great site.
Admin reply: Thank you Callen for your memories and sharing them with us. Continue to come back often and revisit the memories here at The 60s Official Site.
