We begin a sub-series on space in the 60’s which also focuses heavily on the music of the decade. This one is all about the early 60’s, including NASA’s Mercury Program launches from Cape Canaveral which put America’s first men in space while music became folk-inspired and psychedelic drugs began to appear.
