My mom(Pam Hooks)
My mom wasn’t born in the 60’s but the kind of music that she grew up with that are from the 60’s are James Brown, The Carpenters and the Beatles. Her favorite Beatles song from the 60’s - Hey Jude.

The Isle of Wright Festival.
The Isle of Wright Festival started in 1969. I picked this topic because I thought about musicology and how we listened to a lot of oldies music. The people that performed were people who are still popular today.
Jimi Hendrix,
Miles Davis
Richie Havens
The festival didn’t stay around long , but from what I see from my sources , there was a lot of music lovers there.

Article:Memorable Music in 1970’s
Because I interviewed a couple of people about music , back when I was born , I thought that maybe I should find an article about music in the 70’s.
In the 70’s marked a decade of accelerated improvements in stereo recording. Also opened big hits with the Carpenters. storyteller songs became popular/common. Keeping the folk music around. Soul music became more popular in the 70’s. The artist that made soul music was James Brown, Diana Ross, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Gladys Knigh. Disco was released in 1970 of the “Saturday Night Fever” by the Bee Gees.Also Donna Summer. Metal got introduced in the 70’s.
As I wrote this slide , it occured to me that a lot of the music that we listen to now were introduced in the late and early 70’s.
