958. London, June 1967

WindWhisperer got #957!

Let's stay in London a bit longer. We first saw this man as a boy in #759, way back in 1955. At the time he was part of a forgotten film. Now he's on a meteoric rise to the top. Er, maybe just to the middle. He still can't believe he wasn't invited to the Monterey Pop Festival.

Before SNL, before Laugh-In, there were these two. They might look wholesome but after a while they agitated the network censors so badly they had to submit shows in advance for review and approval.
