[Description by Uncle Ricky]

A Stan Freberg PSA for the United Presbyterian Church, and Tommy Saunders' cough switch bit (very funny, starts 17:04 in) is included in this delightful and charming hour of Top 40 legend KYA in San Francisco, from 10-11PM on May 22, 1964. Lots of Boss going on — a full year before Boss Radio appeared on KHJ in L.A. (This show continues on a previously posted exhibit from contributor Nick Whitmer.)

1964 was a great year! Of course, I was there and 13 at the time, so I'm prejudiced. But the music is so good in this hour, I even LIKE The Beatles songs.

There is no better way to enjoy this epic exhibit other than to kick back and GO FOR NINETEEN SIXTY FOUR. Polished PulseBeat newscasts from Norman Davis connect you to the moment, at the moment, just as it was then. Despite some technical weirdness here and there (mostly in the first 10 minutes), this IS an aural delight which is best enjoyed unscoped.
