1960's Music

Do you remember where you were or what you were doing in the 1960s?  It was said in last night's "ATC Workshop & Swap" that if you could remember, you weren't really there . . . what do you think?  Whether you do or don't remember, the '60s were filled with new and exciting music and musical innovations.  The music scene was moving away from the doo-wap and rockabilly of the 1950s, and the "psychedelic" and "British invasion" sounds were gaining popularity.  Times were a'changin'!  And at last night's "ATC Workshop & Swap", those changes were evident by everyone's creativity in their incredible ATCs.

This month's theme was "1960's Music", and once again, it was exciting to see what everyone did . . . from The Beach Boys to Janis Joplin, everyone shared their ideas of what we all were listening to during this musical era.
TOP ROW: "Psychedelic '60s 8-Track", Charmaine Conway; "3 Days of Peace & Music",
