September 5th

The Hollywood Palace kicks off the new television season (their fifth) with The Association, who perform their latest hit "Never My Love".  

The Beatles hold their first recording session for "I Am The Walrus".  It is their first studio session since the passing of their manager Brian Epstein on August 27th.  It is said that the vivid images and lyrical wordplay in both "I Am The Walrus" and "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds" were both inspired by Lennon's love of Lewis Carroll's writing as a child, most notably "The Walrus And The Carpenter" and "Alice In Wonderland" … but Lennon also admitted that after learning that a teacher at his old primary school was having their students analyze Beatles lyrics, he threw in a bunch of nonsense words just for fun.
