Sixties music was so diverse — from sunshine pop to Motown to soul to many flavors of rock. Let’s see, there was folk rock, surf rock, acid rock, psychedelic rock, Baroque rock, and much more. Read about the bands and the songs.

Don Herbert as Mr. Wizard taught science to generations of children. Sixties TV had spies, witches, martians, astronauts, and plenty of variety shows.

Not everything was about the Vietnam War, the silent majority, and Woodstock. There was also the Freddie from Freddie and the Dreamers.
