Beginning with all four of our CD players filled with lots of 60s jazz played all at once, and a reprise of The Last Poets relating the history of jazz, we continue with Nico and The Velvet Underground, The Byrds, Country Joe McDonald vs. LBJ, an ode to Richard Nixon, and lots of other mid to late 60s rock. After a review of the early 60’s Mercury and Gemini space flights, Nasa’s Apollo program to put us on the moon “By the end of this decade” begins.

3 Hours.
