I was five...I still remember my mom telling me a girl that grew up on my street had been shot.

She was on Guadalupe Ave near the University of Texas campus, and was hit in the elbow by Charles Whitman, the tower sniper. She was one of the lucky ones that survived. But, like a lot of people present that day, she had a hard time ever getting over it. PTSD and whatnot.

Cool Threads, iPowrie. I was 12 - junior high school. Like MissElf, I loved the music shows that were on like Shindig, Hullaballoo, Where The Action Is, and of course the old standard, American Bandstand. In addition to the music my sensibilities were starting to be shaped by the musicians I was enjoying (The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, Dylan) and stuff in the news (Indian mysticism, VietNam war, emerging hippie counter culture)

Gas was less than 40 cents!

I was 8 years old too, great times back then, Baseball, riding the mini bike, long summer days.

Gas was probably only 20 something cents in 1966. I remember when i started riding my motorcycle on the highway with my permit in 1973 gas was only 32 cents a gallon, and they may have been high test instead of regular!

yeah ,being 15 in Oct of that year I was front row and center for it, so to speak. The "count five" look like many of the bands I danced to at schools and other social events back then. It was the era of the local live band, most notably in my area Ronnie Dio, who went on to bigger and better things..


Grerat thread and I am looking foward to '67

Wow - I was 10 and had many of those records! What a trip down memory lane. Thanks for all the work it took to compile that list.

I was 10 and digging Shindig, Bandstand, and Ed Sullivan Show. also, my brother and I were doing covers in the carport for all of the neighbors to hear. He was on elec. guitar and I was at the microphone.

We were good.

Ah Moe Drabowski......

Also in 1966......the Allman Joys tour with the Rubber Band, with a stop at Ft. Brandon Armory, in Tuscaloosa....an event attended by a college freshman that would later come to be known as "Buppalo." Also attended by a local piano-playing kid, Chuck Leavell, who would later become known at the regular piano player for the local hippie bar, The Chukker.

The heyday of the garage bands....some now obscure memories, some now household names. Good, good times.

The year of The Missing Ring.

I realize you are referring to musical events of 1966......what a great time to be a teenager then.........I turned 14 in '66....and still have about half of those albums, even some 45's (remember them?)

but another momentous event happened between October 5-9 of that year....

The Baltimore Orioles became the World Champions!!!! Beating the Koufax/Drysdale LA Dodgers in a 4 game sweep. Setting a record of 33 1/3 consecutive shutout innings pitched, using only 4 pitchers for the whole series.

I couldn't stand 'These Boots Are Made For Walking', but my 9 year old brother bought the album & I hung the album cover on the wall of my room.....for a 14 year old, Nancy was lookin' good!



As I said, in 1966 was a great time to be a teenager. Great music. Great times. Thanks for the memories.
