1968: Turn On, Tune In, Change Channels
In 1968, “Mrs. Robinson,” “Hey Jude,” and “Classical Gas” blared from our radios; longtime hits like Gunsmoke and Here’s Lucy found themselves challenged by newcomer Laugh-In on our TVs; and The Graduate, Planet of the Apes, and 2001: A Space Odyssey scored big at the box office. The music, the movies, and the TV of the time reflected the conflict and confusion that reigned across America during the tumultuous year of 1968, and also helped take our minds off it. The pop culture shift in 1968 is still having an impact on us 50 years later.
103.9 WVBO along with CAPITOL/UNIVERSAL feature this one-hour special in support of the Steve Miller Band Ultimate Hits, which will be out on Friday, September 15th.
This exclusive broadcast features interview clips with Steve interspersed with songs off the album such as “Fly Like an Eagle,” “Jungle Love,” “Jet Airliner,” “Take the Money and Run” and many other hits.
