"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." - President Ronald Reagan

Growing up with John Fogerty & CCR on the radio!
(From left to right: John, Doug, Tom and Stu)
In March 1969, The Beatles were still enjoying the success of the so called "White Album".
The Rolling Stones had released "Beggar's Banquet", one of their best LPs. Later in the summer of 1969, they'd release "Honky Tonk Women", one of their best songs ever.
The Bee Gees were about to release "Odessa", a great album that included "First of May" and the lovely title song.
Add Creedence Clearwater Revival to the radio playlist. Everybody called them CCR because their name was too long!
