The 1960s Pop-Rock Music & TV Shows Net

If you are passionate about discussing and reminiscing 1960s pop-rock music and television programming, you won’t want to miss joining other like-minded hams for some great fun and reliving those years of the ‘60s decade. For much of the Net ‘60s music and TV trivia questions are asked which I know will bring back a flood of memories for you from “back in the day”. For more information check out this PDF.

The answer to the November Website Question is:
"This '60s singing group made people dream of going to California to get away from the winter cold." State your response in the form of a question on The 1960s Pop-Rock Music & TV Shows Net.
