While visiting my brother last month, I played his Gretsch Country Gentleman guitar. For a few seconds, anyway, I felt like George Harrison. Note to self: Next time I visit Todd, be sure to take some Fender medium picks and leave a few there.

Howling little tune from 1966: “Li’l Red Riding Hood.” I used to wait by the radio for this one.
It’s Johnny Rivers on Hullabaloo! My dad and I used to watch Hullabaloo, which ran on NBC from January 1965 through April 1966. Repeat episodes aired in summer 1966.
The first prerecorded tape I ever owned was Time Peace: The Rascals’ Greatest Hits. I wore it out on my Radio Shack mono cassette player.
A dandy Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones
The Who when they were still known as The High Numbers
This is what Saturday mornings looked like when I was a kid.
My dad owned this one. I listened to it over and over.
