The 60s Official Site Guestbook

I've been enjoying your site for years.Tonight I was reading about 1965 on your site and I couldn't help to reflect on a comment made that "Dancing in the Streets" by Martha Reeves and the Vandellas was used as a rallying cry in the Watts Riots. While that may be true, I have a different story. I have always had a fond memory of being at Coney Island on a hot summers night in 65. There were rides and other amusements there and at least one with loud speakers playing music. When this song played I distinctly recall both black and white teens moving to the middle of the street to dance. They may not have been dancing with each other but they were dancing together. I recall thinking that something positive was happening to race relations that night but it unfortunately it didn't last.

Admin reply: Thank you for your comments Charlie. Indeed a great song and a period of racial unrest during those years.

Your site is great. When I first went to work for the Department of Housing and Urban Development in Atlanta, I was told that we had working with us an original member of Jefferson Airplane, before "White Rabbit". I really thought they were pulling my leg, but it was true and his story was great, can you take a guess who?

Admin reply: You have me but it may have been the first drummer who left before the recording sessions, Jerry Peloquin.

Hello: I have a laugh-in question. I'm doing research on Martin Ransohoff. The late novelist, Elmore Leonard, told me that there was a running gag on Laugh-In, mentioning his name. Does anybody have any knowledge or that, and if so, possibly what episode?

Thanks.

Hi there! It's been quite awhile, but I'm back! I'm still a lover of much, if not most of the 1960's music, especially from the midd-1960's through the late 1960's.

Although I wasn't part of any of the huge events that took place during the 1960's, I still loved listening to the music of that time, as well as seeing lots of cool movies.

Recently, I saw my all time favorite film, West Side Story, when Fathom Events and TCM (Turner Classic Movies) re-released it on a national level, in select movie theatres around the United States. I, my sister-in-law, and a longtime good friend of mine saw an absolutely pristine copy of the the 1961 film, West Side Story, on a great big, wide movie theatre screen, in a nearby Boston Cinema, and enjoyed every minute of it.

I still love listening to the music from the 1960's, and viewing this website. :!sun: :!sun: :!sun: :)

Admin reply: Thank you once again Miki for stopping by. Always great to hear from you.

Thank you for adding "Never Made It Above 30" to your site and keeping these gems alive. Yes, we still hear all the #1 hits, but going back and saving this collection is priceless. "Transistor Sister" brings back the Christmas memory when my sister and I both got the newest gadget to hit the market called Transistor Radios. THANKS!!!!!!

Admin reply: Thank you for your comments and for being a fan Chuck. Be sure to check out August Show of Soundtrack of the 60s as we play the songs that made it to only #13. Lucky or unlucky you be the judge.

Thanks again guys! I loved this show. The back stories are so interesting. What a great job you two do. It is funny how one, or maybe it's just me, thinks that the version they like the most is the original. But great songs do get a lot of covers and many of them are so good. Neal, I was wondering if you and/or Carl would happen to remember a song, The Dubuque Blues by the Association. It was written and recorded about Dubuque after doing a "ramp dance"(remember those)in February 1966. I don't think the song did that well, but it was a really good song. Anyway, I was at that ramp dance on leave from Air Force Tech School and heading to my assignment at Glasgow AFB, Montana where I met you Neal. Now I'm still listening to you and it's not even blasting in the dorm.

Admin reply: Oh yes Wally. Songs blasting in the Supply Squadron dorm at Glasgow Air Force Base in Montana. A 60s memory! One room trying to outdo another. Great story! And I just was at You Tube to listen to The Dubuque Blues. Now I know the west side doesnít have all the beverages on my menu. Good tune from 1970. Thank you Wally. You and Lois ROCK!
