5/1/1965 (53 years ago today) - Alright, this time you can blame The Beatles: At the height of The British Invasion, lotsa stuff snuck by, like Herman's Hermits starting a three-week run at No. 1 on the singles chart with the Monty Pythonesque ditty "Mrs. Brown, You've got A Lovely Daughter". Yes, you bought it.

5/1/1967 (51 years ago today) - How d'ya think this would go over these days?...: Singer/guitarist Carl Wilson of The Beach Boys was arrested by the F.B.I. on charges of avoiding the military draft and refusing to take the Oath of Allegiance. Half a century later, the Vietnam war still holds its place as one of America's most controversial pieces of history...

5/1/1969 (49 years ago today) - Keep in mind the most popular shows on TV at this time were "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In", "Gunsmoke", "Mayberry R.F.D." and "Bonanza": On this date, Bob Dylan recorded an appearance for "The Johnny Cash Show" at the legendary Ryman Auditorium in Nashville -- Bob performed "I Threw It All Away" off his current release, the now-regarded-as-a-classic "Nashville Skyline" LP, followed by the debut of a brand new song, "Living The Blues", which would be released as a single in June, then he and Johnny did a duet on "Girl From The North Country": Cash fans were baffled, Dylan freaks could only scratch their heads. Beautiful, really...
