September 28, 1964

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

Randy King  

Taylor's Supper Club - 7000 W. Colfax, Denver

The Famous Taylors

Cloud 9 - 8611 W. Colfax, Denver (later became Fat Daddy's)

Gene McKnight Trio

Johnny Rivers, Chad and Jeremy, Ronnie and the Daytonas, and The Ventures

Denver Auditorium - October 10. 1964

Had to show off this record record cabinet advertisement.
While not music related, I thought you all might like seeing some other advertisements in this paper.
