Site and Page Update History
January 12th 2003
Pirate Sounds - fantastic Sixties
sounds from offshore pirate radio stations,
particularly Swinging Radio England.
January 24th 2003
The Market Place - I get lots of letters
asking where various Sixties items
can be bought. There is now a page of links to online suppliers of original
and retro Sixties items.
Currently working on a listing for the Top20 pop charts for every week
the Sixties. If you want to know what was in the charts on your birthday
on an anniversary this will give you the chance to check it out. It's
take a while though - I expect to be able to upload a new year every 2
weeks as well as small updates to other areas of the site.
February 23rd 2003
Have to admit I've fallen behind with the Top
20. 1960 has now been uploaded.
Also, a complete new front page, menu
and search system which I hope will
be useful to you. Loads of small updates have been done as well. Another
new page is the 'marketplace' which
is a resource for you to be able to find
Sixties items that you often e-mail me about. I will also be adding a
resources section to this so that you can take advantage of the same services
which have provided so well for me over the years.

The site has enjoyed highly
increased popularity recently which has had the effect
of causing bandwidth problems. In order to try and reduce these, many
been moved to new locations. If you have visited recently and have problems
viewing some pages, please click on the refresh icon on your explorer
This should reload the page with the latest links. I have also had to
automatic play on the midi files from the pages for the same reason, but

of the weekly Charts and new and regularly updated quizzes as a lot of
you have requested.
I've added a lot of Amazon links to the pages in the hope of raising a
bit of capital to
support the cost of keeping the site up - these are mostly linked to relevant

I do try to answer
all e-mail and questions - thanks for sending them, and for your patience
in waiting for a reply. Keep them coming!
Linking To and From This Site
Please don't link directly to individual images on this site. They change
occasionally and you will find yourself with dead links. If you want to
use any of them, feel free, but please read my notes regarding copyright
before using them on your own pages.
If you have a relevant site that you think I might like to put a link
to please let me know by e-mail, I'd
like to see it. Any aspect of the Sixties is of interest, no matter how
If you care to put a link to my site on your pages, huge thanks, but please link to the main title page
rather than individual sections. It would also be nice if you would e-mail
me to let me know.
The link address is now:http://www.sixtiescity.com/index.htm
Link Logos and Images
Here are some link logos for the site if you want to use them. If you
prefer the alternative logos appearing on any of the pages, please feel
free to 'lift' and use them instead. If you need to resize them for use
on your pages and can't achieve decent quality, please ask me for another

Sixties City pages are best
viewed at 800 x 600 in IE5+ due to the nature of the page construction.
Several different editors were involved, not all with cross-browser capability.
At the moment, 800
resolution is very common so I will continue to construct mainly for that
format but I am slowly changing
the pages for more universal viewing and a lot of the images appear even
better at 1200 resolution.
Some images are compressed jpeg or gif with the consequent loss of quality.
More recent jpeg images
have been loaded in uncompressed format which provides better quality
screen reproduction but, unfortunately, take a little longer to load
- c'est la vie - doin' the best I can!
Content Accuracy and Advertising Banners
links are provided throughout the site. If you purchase items from Amazon
through these links I receive a small percentage of the sale which helps
to pay for the bandwidth needed to keep this site operational. Some sixties-related
items available from Amazon are featured in various places on the site
but, of course, you also have fuul access to current chart items, videos,
books and many other terrific items which Amazon has to offer. If you
use Amazon regularly, please use the link-through from this site when
you buy - then we both get a good deal!
web service advertising banners appearing on Sixties City are provided
by the companies whose services I use in the presentation of this site.
Their services are provided to me free of charge and it is right that
I should promote their services in return. I receive no income or profit
for their promotion, but I have experienced nothing but excellent service
from all of them and highly recommend them to you if you are starting,
or want to improve, your own web pages or site. They are well worth considering.

This site has taken me over
five years to construct and a lot of that time has been spent on research.
I've done my best to make sure the facts are correct but I can't accept
any responsibility for consequences due to errors that might exist in
any of the information appearing on these pages.
If you do notice any checkable inaccuracies I would appreciate it if you
would let me know.
I retain the copyright for ALL ORIGINAL text and graphics on these pages. If you want to reproduce
any of it by whatever means, please ask. I'll probably say yes - but
it would be nice to know where it is going!
I have very little information
regarding copyright contacts for pictures appearing here - I have seen
most of them in various locations with no copyright contact information.
I am using them to illustrate the articles purely for interest and fan
purposes, but if I have upset anyone through their use, please advise
I will either remove them or be only too pleased to give credit to the
copyright owner if that is acceptable.
The same offer applies to sound files, particularly midi file authors, with whose work I am totally impressed.
Registered names and logos also remain the copyright of the particular
owners. Again, I only reproduce them for interest purposes and the same
To anyone who does hold copyrights on any of these and lets them stay
on here, a very big THANK YOU!
I would also
like to pay tribute to the authors of the many books and web sites I
have looked at while putting this together as I can now appreciate,
even if only to a small extent, the amount of work involved.
I hope you find the pages
interesting, informative and, most of all, fun!
