RARE & SCRATCHY ROCK 'N ROLL_099 – "Sex-Rated Hit Singles Of The 1960s & 1970s"
Our earlier episode #8 – “Risque Records, Banned Ballads, & Profane Platters” – is the second most downloaded show in our “Rare & Scratchy Rock ‘N Roll” series. It covers 52 songs spanning all the decades since the 1950s.
Now, as an extension of that rockumentary, we’ll listen a little closer to how rock and roll reflected the evolution of pop culture attitudes about sex in the 1960s and 1970s. Radio stations played all the songs we’re presenting in this edition back in the day, and most of these tunes are still heard today. That said, we suggest you cover the ears of any younger rock and rollers who might be listening to this download with you. That’s because we’ll sample 40 songs with lyrics that have adult content.
We’re calling this presentation “Sex-Rated Hit Singles Of The 1960s and 1970s.”
