Too late for me?

July 9th, 2012 (09:54 pm)

I've written before, I think, that going through the Radio Times of the 1960s leaves me with the feeling that I have been watching the world I know come into existence, as television programmes which I grew up with begin, entertainment personalities still active today emerge. It's an illusion, of course, but only up to a point, as although not obvious to everybody the seeds of our internetted world had already germinated and their gardeners were cultivating them. In this spirit, The Guardian are reporting on the fiftieth anniversary of the first gig by the Rolling Stones: planted with deliberation in the atmosphere of London jazz clubs, one perhaps austere to our eyes but if not its cradle, then perhaps a hammock in which the decade's counterculture swung for a while.
