Now Playing at the Shady Dell: January 1967

Time marches on! It's 1967 here at Shady Dell Music & Memories. The wind's howling and the snow's flying but the magical Summer of Love will be here before you know it!

Let's have a look now at the Shady Dell's jukebox lineup for the month of January. Remember those three power ballads that I featured in my "Dell in Winter" post a year ago? They are all together in the jukebox this month!

Experience the look and sound of young America!

You have
one month
to speculate
but remember,
ladies & gentlemen,
this is only
an exhibition,
this is not
a competition;
so please --
no wagering!







Have a Shady day!
