It was the year of new beginnings . . . JFK’s Inauguration…Barbie meeting Ken for the first time . . . Alan Shepard becomes the first American in space . . . Roger Maris hits 61 home runs . . . and a group from Liverpool plays at the Cavern Club for the first time.
This Thursday at 9 PM, Alan Seltzer will focus on the music and events of 1961 on a Flashback special on “The Grooveyard”.. We’ll play all the songs that made it to number one in order, plus clips from some of the major events of the year and as many other hits from the year as possible.
“The Grooveyard” can be heard on 88.1 FM on Long Island, the 88.1 FM link on wcwp.org or the TuneIn app on your SmartPhone. Feel free to send song requests, comments and suggestions via Twitter or the form below.
