The SIXTIES were an exciting, revolutionary, turbulent time of great social and technological change: assassination, unforgettable fashion, new musical styles, Camelot, civil rights, gay and women's liberation, a controversial and devisive war in Vietnam, the first manned landing on the moon, peace marches, World's Fairs, flower power, great TV and film and sexual freedom.
Don Fass--an editor and broadcaster who grew up then and wrote and reported about much of it--is gathering the history, sounds, images and feel of the 60's for you right here.
