On Tuesday, October 20 let's take a look back
The Beatles, The Sixties, and Popular Culture
American and British culture of the 1960's is reflected more in the music of the Beatles than in that of any other group. The group shattered many sales records and charted more than fifty top-40 hit singles between October, 1962 and May, 1970. The Beatles have been called the most iconic music group of modern times and Boston Univeristy's Dr. Jeremy Yukdin will show and tell us why!
At this salon, we will see filmed interviews with John, Paul, George and Ringo, and we'll listen closely to some of their greatest songs. This multi - media experience will leave us more knowledgeable about the most volatile decade of the twentieth century and more enthusiastic about the music of the Beatles than ever before.
