Sidney, Ohio

A song, belatedly, for the moon landing anniversary (I'm so happy for all this Summer of '69 anniversary stuff in the news; I was born in a very eventful and interesting summer. The Woodstock and Tate-LaBianca murders' anniversaries are coming soon as well.) And a song for summer as well.

Astrud Gilberto - Fly Me To The Moon

Jay Ferguson - Thunder Island

I was turning 21 that summer, I had my first car, a 62' Buick full of headaches but I was in radio at the top of the game in Binghamton, NY. (WENE) I'll never forget THAT summer. So much was unfolding and a lot of people weren't ready for it. The Lunar Landing, The Manson Murders and Woodstock were the biggies that year.

It was an amazing year! I had to do a term paper once for a history class about the month I was born. I fudged it a little and went with two weeks before and two weeks after so I could include everything you mentioned. I got an A+ with the notation "You got an easy month!"


Music is posted for a short time, and while I use it in part to (hopefully, though not always) go along with the theme of the photo, I also post it in hopes someone will give it a try and fall in love with it as I have. Perhaps they will then seek out more by the artist and buy more cds. That's how it works with me, anyway. If you like it, pick it up at the store; support the artists you love.
