Hey gang! I've recently acquired a huge (understatement) pile of old Denver newspapers. Having a lot of fun going through these, and thought it would be appropriate to supplement the (audio) music posts with some other Colorado music ephemera finds.
Given the date, I thought I would first post some 56-year-old music-related advertisements (and other ads) from the September 28, 1964 issue of the Rocky Mountain News. Hope this brings back some memories.
The newspaper was filled with stories regarding the release of the Warren Report - the official report on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
The 1964 Denver nightclub scene was pretty diverse, with rock/pop, country and lounge acts. Take a look at these ads (click all to enlarge):
The El Cid Supper Club - 4780 Tejon, Denver (club was earlier known as Cavaleri's)
Lee Arellano Trio
Alibi Inn - 495 S. Federal, Denver
Gene McKnight Trio
