Sixties Sojourn is an initiative of Connection Matters Radio

The Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Songs of All Time (Part 4…final!)

Sunday 21 June 2020 at 3pm on 3KND – 1503AM – or the I Heart Radio App

This is it! The fourth and final part of our ambitious “play all 196 songs from the sixties that have been included in the Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Songs of all Time.” In total, just about 12 hours of amazing music – and lots of trouble from station management for uploading the full “epic” versions of some songs.

Here are just some of the artists taking to the stage during the show.

Cream

Dionne Warwick

Sam Cooke

The Kinks

Aretha Franklin

The Beach Boys

The Impressions

Ike and Tina Turner

Charles’ Pick

Sunshine of My Love – Cream

One of my brother’s favourite bands and songs, Sunshine of My Love is a classic rock song from a group that’s incredibly underrated in its impact on music of the late sixties and onwards into the seventies.
