Now Playing at the Shady Dell --- June 1966

The month of June is underway, and that means it's time to take another peek inside the old Shady Dell jukebox.

The box is on fire this month! This batch of songs represents the starting lineup... the heart of the batting order. This is the greatest collection of 45s that the Dell will have to offer during the period of the mid-60s.

Experience the look and sound of young America!
