James Brown's Boston Garden concert

Here's the entire 1968 concert shortly after Martin Luther King, Jr.'s death. It was broadcast live on PBS to prevent riots in the city.

Easter morning dose of 1966

Norma Tanega sings her groovy hit Walkin' My Cat Named Dog.

Janis Ian's Society's Child

Society's Child is a hauntingly beautiful and poignant song about the taboo subject of interracial relationships. Janis Ian hit the charts with this song as a 16-year-old in 1967. Many radio stations banned it. Ugh.

Janis won a Grammy for At Seventeen in 1976 for her tearjerker of a song about teenage pain. Wasn't high school a blast?
