Transporting viewers back to the days of go-go dancers, mod miniskirts and swinging pop-rock sounds, A 60s POP FLASHBACK: HULLABALOO (MY MUSIC) is the first-ever retrospective of the fondly remembered and highly influential 1965-66 NBC primetime series “Hullabaloo.” The top singers and groups of the hippest decade present their greatest hits, blending the British Invasion with folk-rock and classic rhythm and blues. Hosted by Peter Noone of Herman’s Hermits, A 60s POP FLASHBACK: HULLABALOO (MY MUSIC) is part of special programming premiering on witf on March 1 at 8:30 p.m., March 3 at 4 p.m., March 4 at 12 a.m., March 10 at 4 p.m., March 10 at 10 p.m., March 15 at 8:30 p.m. and March 16 at 1 a.m.

The musical melting pot of the sixties is fully seen and heard in A 60s POP FLASHBACK: HULLABALOO in complete song performances, starting with the joyful pop harmonies of Herman’s Hermits (“Can’t You Feel My Heartbeat”), Sonny & Cher (“I Got You Babe”) and the Four Seasons (“Working My Way Back to You”).

The folk-rock sounds of the sixties include the million-selling “Mr. Tambourine Man” by the Byrds, “Eve of Destruction,” a #1 hit by Barry McGuire, the Pete Seeger-penned “If I Had a Hammer” sung by Trini Lopez, “You Didn’t Have to Be So Nice” by troubadour John Sebastian with the Lovin’ Spoonful, and the classic anthem “California Dreamin’” by the Mamas & the Papas.

Rebellion-fueled rock was part of the scene too, as represented by the Bobby Fuller Four (“I Fought the Law”), the Animals (“It’s My Life”), the Outsiders (“Time Won’t Let Me”), Nancy Sinatra (“These Boots Are Made for Walkin’”) and Paul Revere & the Raiders (“Kicks”).
