PULP SCI-FI FROM 1961: Dig this cover of ANALOG magazine from May of 1961! I'm sure you'll agree the cover art by Hugo Award-winner John Schoenherr (1935-2010) is second to none. Schoenherr also illustrated the dust jacket for Frank Herbert's DUNE (1965).
RADIO FREE 1961: Dig this '61 advertisement for station KFWB Los Angeles. Located at 980 kHz (or, as they say here, Channel 98), KFWB was a mostly news-oriented AM station that played some music and sports here and there. Later, it switched to 24/7 news, and just last month (August 2014) I understand it switched to an all-sports station.
