Star Time #25: '60s Summer Party!


Citizen Kane. Ulysses. The Sopranos. Evil Dead 2. Naked Lunch. Harry & the Hendersons. Dickie Nix's Pop-Up Series for Kids: Let's Go Watergate! All astounding works of art, passed down through generations by lucid hoboes and thermally reactive mail clerks. And to this roll call of classics, we now add the most spectacular Star Time to date: The '60s Summer Party! Featuring songs that were R&B chart hits during the summers of the 1960's, this journey into the social abyss will haunt you until your supervisor tosses you into solitary. Beware the Runaway Horse. Enjoy.

(Star Time is taking a break next week. New episodes resume the week of July 17.)
