Mad Men, 1966

While poking through my stacks of old magazines the other day, I happened across this gem from 1966. A Fortune Magazine article about a new advertising agency on Madison Avenue. Mad Men is one of my favorite TV shows, and this article is like a story arc from that series. Apologies for the scans, it's a large magazine and not easy to work with!

I'm seeing Peggy (4th from left, standing ) and Layne (5th from right, kneeling). Anyone else?

I'll post the rest of the article in the next few days!

Square Dance Records

OK, it's a cold, snowy pre-Superbowl Sunday afternoon, but I found a batch of very peppy square dance 45s at the local antique shop for 50 cents each. Ca. 1960, call sheets included!
Here's "Spanking Jack" by Don Armstrong with calls.

And "Back Up and Push" by Jack Carter, instrumental only.
