Themes (No3 - 1966 - Looking Back London Style)

Themes - Gigs, Sessions Documentries and More.

(November 2017) We take different musical themes as our focus for this page. Our goal is to update this feature every four to six weeks (we have limited resources so please be patient).

Following on from our Krautrock feature we presented some Fore-Runners to Punk Rock, this time we take a look back to London and 1966 for our third update to this page. It is pretty random, the idea came from a documentary, the result is hardly earth shattering, hopefully though you will find it interesting.

In due course we hope to make this more interactive, however more about that another time. If you have anything to add then your welcome to leave a comment at the bottom of the page.

 Radio London News - September 1966.

When offshore pirate radio was Great Britain's first radio listening choice, with over half the nations population tuning in daily, even including the news! Can you even conceive of that now? Free uncontrolled opinions and a spirit of real rock & roll, those were the days (even if the news was 'borrowed' from the BBC & others).
