Summer of 1966

File:The Supremes (Promo Pic 1).pngI’m doing some prep for the show on Saturday, getting together some details about the summer of 1966 – the summer when “You Can’t Hurry Love” was released by The Supremes and became an international hit.  My parents always told me that the mid to late 60s were a hard time, both personally and for the country as a whole, and you can get a sense of that looking at what was going on:  Vietnam escalation was in full-swing, race riots in Lansing, Dr. King getting beaten.  Major cultural shifts were going on everywhere that forced people to reconsider long-held traditions and beliefs.  But then again… England did win the World Cup.

What do you remember about the summer of 1966?
