How Music Changed

    If the year was 1966, then you can be sure that the pop music emanating from transistor radios that Summer was absolutely incredible.

    I’m still blown away when I look back, trying to remember a time when nearly every day presented an opportunity to hear something that blew your mind (except Napoleon XIV, which blew my stomach…).

    This show captures some of the best highlights from early Summer 1966, when AM radio would play these songs in steady rotation, until something new came along – which happened every single day!

    Featured tracks include:

    Little Red Riding Hood – Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs

    They’re Coming to Take Me Away, Ha Ha – Napoleon XIV

    I Saw Her Again – The Mamas and the Papas

    Mother’s Little Helper – The Rolling Stones

    Lady Jane – The Rolling Stones
