men's magazines of the 60s before Playboy dominated the market
me and my buddies at 12 years of age used to flip thru them at the local drugstore
until the Manager shooed us away
we usually got some good looks before we got bounced..............................................................................😄

actually I guess the one priced at $.10 - "Snap" - must be from the 50s or maybe even the 40s - that's too low a price for the 60s

They were always in the drug
store with all the paperbacks
with the racy covers. We would
gawk at them in the late 50's
until the pharmacist/owner
came from behind the counter
and pushed us to the comic
book section. He had the mags
there because they were huge
sellers, he couldn't afford not
to carry them. They were a joke
by today's standards, the women
were as old as our mothers. In
the 50's sex was seen as filthy and
dirty and kids could not be exposed
to it and come out with a clean
mind. A strange time to live in.

I figured we were kind of poor because my parents had to sleep in the same bed, unlike all the couples on tv.

We were very lower middle class.
Both parents worked. But we
wanted for nothing, had two
cars, and it never occurred to
me we had no money. Nobody
ever talked about it. All our
neighbors were the same.

If you worked on your own
car, and everybody did, cars
in the 60's were very cheap.
You could get one for $50
that would last a couple of
years if you took care of
it. My dad liked old Cadillac's.

"The Adventures of Superman"

this was absolutely my favorite show as a little kid
actually the show began before I was born, but was put into syndication and replayed thru the 60s
the special effects were lame by today's standards
even for back then they weren't believable - even his costume is not impressive - pretty raggedy
but it was the characters that made the show
the star, George Reeves, died by gunshot in L.A. in his mansion under mysterious circumstances





replays of the old show in black and white are shown on the network H&I on some mornings

Loved the show as a kid. It was just about the only one of "my shows" that was in color.

In almost every episode, Superman stands there, as bad guys shoot him in the chest. The bullets bounce off of him but when the villain throws their now empty gun at him, he ducks.

i love the episode of I Love Lucy where George Reeves plays his Superman character

Remember when Top 40 songs
told stories? This was a huge
hit in 1971, stupidest song
ever written. It was also a hit
in 1955. The 60's car culture
was still very much alive in 71.
This was #9 on Billboards list
and we heard it a couple times
an hour. The orig song was
about a 1930 Model A with
a 1948 Lincoln motor in it.
Hard to believe we had a time
when a song like this was a
giant hit.

Here's the 55 version:

When Casey Kasim was doing the Top Forty on syndicated radio, he wouldn't play songs with drug references. In the mid-1970s, Ringo Starr had a surprise hit with the No,No song, which talked about getting high and doing cocaine. Even though the singer says no to the drugs, Casey would not play it on the air. As it became a big hit and cracked the Top Ten, Casey decided to play the B side of the single.
So while the No, No song was played almost hourly on thousands of radio stations, it never made it to America's Top Forty, and Snookeroo( the B side) was listed as one of the top five songs of the year.
I saw Commander Cody twice. The first time was in a concert hall with traditional seating and the show was okay. The next time was in a converted bingo hall with no seats and the audience was rocking and dancing the whole show.
Top Forty radio in the early 70s was quite the mish-mosh. Neil Young and the Captain and Tenille competed for airplay. An on air news commentary from a Canadian about the state of America became a top forty hit, as did the theme songs from Hawaii Five-O, and Quentins Theme, from Dark Shadows. A song about truckers spawned a hit, a movie,1 and a tv show, and Beethoven had two top forty hits.
