A mis-spent youth...? Well, some (including my parents, bless 'em) might call it that, but I had a really rockin' good time - nearly every song holds a memory of some sort for me! Not because I was around much in the Sixties, well I was there of course, just not quite old enough to get the best out of it (as the saying goes, if you can remember it, you weren't there!) but as motorbikin' people in the Seventies we ate, drank, danced and dreamed Sixties music and Rock'n'Roll !

By the way - if you think you remember me from then and we've lost touch over the years, see my home page - Kyndamagic - for personal pics, some info and contact details. Sixties chart listings seem to be quite rare on the net. If you know of another, not linked, please e-mail me to tell me where it is ! You will find periodic updating of the pages with the intention of eventually relating each artist to a relevant web site or page as I find them ( if they exist! - maybe you can help?) and a picture.

Inevitably, there are many copyright issues here and I hope, in the interests of Sixties music fandom, that there will be no objection to anything used on this site. Of course, if there is, please let me know and I will do my best to change it or negotiate something or other. Eventually I hope to collect every single track that hit the top 50 charts - I have about 75% of them at the moment. If you see someone with his head in a box of old scratched plastic at a car boot sale it'll probably be me - take pity!



e-mail Mike Sweeney
Here's a link to the Capital Gold site - click on the logo. If you like Sixties music, Mike Sweeney does the most brilliant Sixties show I've ever heard - reminds me of Capital's Friday night 'Cruising' from years ago, but much better!! Not only do you get the music but also lots of fab stories, statistics and trivia.

You can e-mail Mike from the Capital Gold website - or use the left hand link. If you do - please tell him Sixties City sent you! If you like Sixties stuff check out the times and listen to him. He also does a good Seventies gig as well... maybe I'll do a 70s page... hmmm... anyway...

make like the Beach Boys -
