Week of June 20

Arts and Culture
June 24 – 1960
- The Time Machine heads back to 1960 this time. The year Elvis Presley is discharged from the service. He didn’t miss a beat. The Everly Brothers were in the midst of a long string of hits. Etta James issued her At Last album. Fifteen year old Brenda Lee was all over the chart. The Ventures kickstarted the surf rock craze. If you were on the dance floor, you were probably doing the twist to songs by Chubby Checker or Sam Cooke. Willie Nelson wrote Night Life and quickly sold it for a quick $150 bucks (OOPS) Dean Martin was still swinging, Buddy Holly was gone but there were still some great songs being issued.
- Beyond the world of music: John F. Kennedy became President. Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho was one of the most talked about films and westerns like Gun Smoke were all over the tv. It’s all 1960, our year on this episode of Time Machine from the Current.
