Comment:

The first Star Trek episode, "The Man Trap," is broadcast on September 8. The plot concerns a creature that sucks salt from human bodies.
CBS backs out of plans to broadcast Psycho, deeming the movie too violent for at-home viewing.
In an interview published in The London Evening Standard, John Lennon comments, "We're more popular than Jesus now," eventually sparking a controversy in the US.
England were crowned Football World Champions for the first ( and last ) time.

We Said Hello to John Cusack, Halle Berry, Jeff Buckley, Stephen Malkmus, Sinead O'Connor, Mike Tyson and Eric Cantona.
We said Goodbye to Buster Keaton, Walt Disney, Lenny Bruce, Montgomery Clift and Alma Cogan.

And the Music? Pet Sounds, Revolver, Blonde On Blonde, need we say more?

This episode was brought to you in conjunction with the esteemed RetroJoe

So here we are in the year of Our Eric 1966. The music was/is mind-alteringly great. This was the year I was "allowed" my first pair of "long" school trousers -- my Dad held out as long as he could -- I'll never understand that one. All in all a crucial year for me and my bright-eyed hopes for the future.On a side note -- I am becoming convinced that Sammyg has a vested interest in track 1. You must watch these points...

This looks like the greatest year in the history of humanity. Perfect balance of innocence and progressiveness. I am extremely jealous of anyone who experienced this year on earth.

Wow -- I just today watched the 40th Anniversary Star Trek first episode -- marvelously cleaned up to look like new, with enhanced special effects. And now this equally smashing aural flashback to '66!

What an absolutely fantastic year. That Four Seasons cut, the Beach Boys, Dylan, Beatles, Ike & Tina, Tim Buckley...I've never really harboured that much jealousy of people who could appreciate the 60s heyday but I think that's changing now ;) Great mix, guys.
