May 18th

It is announced today that The Beatles will take part (as one of two British representatives) in a television program set for live, worldwide broadcast on Sunday, June 25th.  They agreed to be shown live in the studio recording a brand new song composed especially for this occasion.  (That song, of course, would be "All You Need Is Love".)  They couldn't have come up with a more perfect summer anthem … which is why it's almost IMPOSSIBLE to think that they also considered doing Paul's "Your Mother Should Know" for this momentous event!  

The Jimi Hendrix Experience perform at Stadthalle in Offenbach, Germany.  

The crew for the Apollo 7 space mission (the first manned Apollo flight) is announced by NASA:  (L-R): Donn F. Eisele, Walter M. Schirra, Jr. and R. Walter Cunningham.  

Character actor Andy Clyde (whose career spanned over four decades) passes away.
