Sixties Sojourn is an initiative of Connection Matters Radio

The Number 1 Hit Today Througout the Sixties

Sunday 28 June 2020 at 3pm on 3KND – 1503AM – or the I Heart Radio App

We launched a new segment today on Sixties Sojourn, the number one hit today throughout the sixties. Sound a bit confusing? Not really. We simply take the number one hit today (the 28th of June) for every year during the 10 years of the sixties…and we rock to them! Well, they’re not really all rock, but that’s for you to find out. 

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

The Easybeats

Cilla Black

Normie Rowe

Zager and Evans

Peter, Paul and Mary

Sandie Shaw

The Seekers

David Ruffin

Charles’ Pick

Under the Boardwalk – The Drifters

How can anyone not absolutely love this song – the Drifters singing the story of a man and his beloved planning a tryst at a seaside town “out of the sun and under the boardwalk”.
