Now Playing at the Shady Dell ----- May 1967

It seems like only yesterday when we were celebrating March Madness 1966 at the Dell, and here it is May 1967. Flower power is in bloom across the USA and the illustrious Summer of Love is about to begin.

Our monthly peek inside the Shady Dell jukebox reveals two great new sides from Harrisburg's favorite funkmeisters along with a mixed bag of Motown soul, rock, pop, Brit beat, and psychedelia.

Experience the look and sound of young America!
