The Andy Griffith Show - Songs, Themes and Laughs 

The 1960’s were a time of cultural change. The sexual revolution, fights for civil rights, the Vietnam War. That’s just a few examples of things that impact us to this day. Maybe the Andy Griffith Show became so hugely popular during that time because it portrayed a world unaffected of all the turmoil (the fact that there were only 3 TV channels might have helped, too). Our Record of the Day is a rare compilation of “Songs, Themes and Laughs” of this show that every American who lived through the 60’s (and many decades afterwards) is familiar with. Even while it aired it was a retreat to simpler times, it is even more so now. A snapshot of the type of country life that doesn’t exist anymore.
