Bobby Vee  The Night Has a Thousand Eyes    DID WE REALLY LOOK LIKE THAT WHEN WE DANCED?? One of the longest lasting of the teen idols of the early 60's, Bobby Vee got his lucky break when he and and his band the Shadows filled in for the late Buddy Holly at a 1959 Mason City, Iowa, concert a few days after Holly was killed in a plane crash. His 1961 summer release Take Good Care of My Baby went to #1 on the Billboard U.S. He went on to record a string of international hits in the 1960s, including Devil or Angel, Rubber Ball (1961), More Than I Can Say (1961), Run To Him (1961), The Night Has a Thousand Eyes (1963), and Come Back When You Grow Up (1967). Bobby Vee currently performs at Dick Clark's American Bandstand Theater in Branson, Missouri. He performs in the "Original Stars of American Bandstand" show along with Fabian, Chris Montez, Brian Hyland, and the Chiffons. His sons Tommy and Jeff both perform in the show with him. When I look at him now I realize how very young he was at the time.

Gary US Bonds Quarter to Three This clip may have been from Bandstand, the year was 1961 and the music was wild! We were dong the "Mashed Potato", the "Pony", and the "Twist", and we were having a ball! Gary joined record producer Frank Guida's small Legrand record label and Guida changed his name to U.S. Bonds in hope that it would be confused with a public service announcement advertising the sale of government bonds and in that way get more airplay. Bonds' first hit was the song "New Orleans", which was followed by "Not Me", a flop for Bonds, but later a hit for The Orlons, and then by his only Number One hit, "Quarter To Three" in June 1961. Subsequent hits, under the name Gary U.S. Bonds, included "School Is Out", "Dear Lady Twist" and "Twist, Twist, Senora" in the early 1960s. In a 1963 tour of Europe, he headlined above The Beatles. While Gary U.S. Bonds is mostly known for achievements within rhythm and blues and rock and roll, he often transcends these genres, he has been nominated for the Country Music Association's "Songwriter of the Year distinction. He is also an honoree of the Rhythm & Blues Foundation. He was inducted into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame on 15 October 2006, and still performs onstage. "Quarter To Three" appears on The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll list.

Gorgeous George Pro wrestling's first superstar was George Wagner, better known in the world of grappling thespians as Gorgeous George. His shtick was designed to outrage conservative-minded Americans of the 1950s. George was quick to realize it didn't matter if the patrons bought tickets to cheer him or jeer him--as long as they bought tickets. With Pomp and Circumstance as his entrance music, George would often climb into the ring clad in effeminate robes, his long hair pinned back with gold bobby pins. His valet would spray George's corner with perfume and his opponent with disinfectant. Gorgeous George was a TV icon in the early 1950s. His appearances on the tube often scored higher ratings than Milton Berle. Muhammad Ali cited Gorgeous George as the inspiration for his braggadocio. George retired from wrestling in November 1962. He died of a heart attack just 13 months year later, on December 26, 1963. He was only 48 years old.

Warren Commission On November 29, 1963, President Lyndon Johnson appointed a commission under the leadership of Judge Earl Warren to investigate the November 22, 1963 assassination of John F. Kennedy in Dallas. This photograph was taken on September 27, 1964, the day the Warren Commission presented Johnson with its 26-volume report. Known as the Warren Report, it concluded that Lee Harvey Oswald fired three shots from the Texas School Book Depository and was the sole assassin. The accuracy of the report has been questioned since that day.

Polyester leisure suit The ultimate men's fashion statement from the 1970s: the much-maligned polyester leisure suit! Polyester was first developed by British researchers during the Second World War. It became a consumer item in 1963 when an Illinois chemist named Delbert Meyer came up with a better way of producing the material. The new threads were blended with natural fibers to create clothing that almost felt like cotton or wool but was washable and wrinkle resistant. Cut from rolls of spongy double-knitted polyester, leisure suits came in all variety of colours: earth tones, blues, racing green, maroon, and the entire spectrum of pastel hues. Airless and horribly uncomfortable in hot and humid weather, polyester leisure suits clung to the wearer's arms and legs. The highly flammable synthetic melted when it burned and stuck to its wearer like napalm. Upper-class men were not impressed, and preferred to stick to their genuine wools, silks and cottons. One fashion writer declared, 'Leisure suits were just too democratic. They made everybody look like a bus driver.'

December 1963 Oh What a Night Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons in 1975. At the time this song was recorded, the group had gone through many changes and Valli was the only member remaining from the four that had recorded all those hits during the 1960s. The song itself was actually co-written by another member from those successful years in the 60s, Bob Gaudio, who left the group in 1972 as a performer but continued to help write and produce for them. Their new drummer, Gerri Polci sang the lead on this song, while Valli's solo only consisted of the lyric "Oh I, I got a funny feelin' when she walked in the room, Yeah my, as I recall it ended much too soon." Around this time, however, Valli did have a successful solo career with the songs "My Eyes Adored You", "Swearin' To God" and "Grease".

Dr Who And The Daleks Remix This TV series started in 1963 and continued up until 1990 when the plug was pulled by the BBC. Later revived it as a series in 2005. It once again grabbed a lions share of the TV ratings. All I've got to say is, long may it continue. From a life long fan.

WORLDS FIRST RONALD MCDONALD Who was the world's first Ronald McDonald? In October 1963 Ronald McDonald made his television debut in a costume far from the one we all know and love. The world's first Ronald McDonald was played by Willard Scott who had several years experience of being a clown starring as Bozo the Clown. It may be speculation, but some give Willard Scott credit for creating Ronald McDonald. Not only was 1963 a good year for Ronald, McDonalds also sold it's billionth hamburger.
