This Week: Flashback 1963 and Dragon Boats


LBJ Swearing InIt was the year when Lyndon Baines Johnson was sworn in as president following the assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy.  It was also the year when James Bond made his way into movie theaters, when Martin Luther King delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech, and when a group from Liverpool made their way to stateside record stores.

This Thursday at 9 PM, Alan Seltzer will focus on the music and events of 1963 in another Flashback special show 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.

Hong-Kong-Dragon-Boat-FestivalYou can also join Alan on Saturday when he takes part in the Opening Ceremonies of the annual Dragon Boat Festival in Flushing Meadow Park Saturday morning at 11:30.

Hosted by Alan Seltzer, “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.
