Some 60 years ago, pop music forever changed after the British Invasion brought with it waves of Manchurian pop bands eager to tug on the ears and hearts of young American listeners. One would be hard pressed to find any heartthrobs from that period more iconic than Peter Noone of Herman’s Hermits and the late Davy Jones of The Monkees, who serve as the hosts of PBS’ ’60s Pop, Rock, and Soul (My Music), which will be broadcast on WOUB-HD Saturday, December 30 at 8:30 p.m.

The ’60s were an interesting time for music — psychedelic pioneers Jefferson Airplane pumping out seemingly bizarre underground hits like “Somebody to Love” and “White Rabbit,” while The Kingsmen released the song that all middle schoolers would play in marching band during the early years of the new millennium “Louie, Louie.” ? and the Mysterians would unleash the profoundly garage rock sounding “96 Tears,” while Paul Revere and the Raiders were busy chasing their “Kicks.”
