  • You know, things like segregation and the Soviets shooting down our spy planes and the very first study that linked cigarette smoking with heart disease.
  • Psycho and The Apartment were 2 of the top movies in 1960.

  • A few of the top songs of 1960?  Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini, a couple of Elvis Presley songs and Let's Do the Twist.
  • The US reached 85 million television sets.  Almost 1 for every 2 American.  Today we average 2.5 TVs per household (with just under 120 million households with a TV).
