I remember 1964 quite well for a 6 year old boy. It was just a few months after JFK's assassination that the Fab Four came to the U.S. and appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show (in the same studio where Letterman does his show, now.) My oldest brother was 16 and he hid me on the floorboard of the backseat so that I could see "A Hard Day's Night" at the drive-in theatre. I started first grade that year and I remember our class even argued about who should win - LBJ or Goldwater. It is the second year that I remember Xmas clearly. I remember my older brothers wearing penny loafers, narrow-legged slacks, and button down collars. They argued with my parents about letting their hair grow out a bit so they could wear bangs like the Beatles.
