Now Playing: 1965

I turned 10 years old in August of 1965*. I wasn’t much into popular music yet. I was far too busy with my books, but my sister turned 16 that year. Accordingly the radio was often tuned to one of Seattle’s two two most popular radio stations – KJR or KOL – so  while I may not have been actively listening, I did come to love many of the songs simply through osmosis.

King of the Road – Roger Miller

Seventh Son – Johnny Rivers

Eight Days a Week – The Beatles

Same Old Song – The Four Tops

For Your Love – The Yardbirds

I’ll Never Find Another You – The Seekers

Baby, I’m Yours – Barbara Lewis

Yesterday – The Beatles

Baby, Don’t Go – Sonny and Cher
