1964 in Showbiz

1964 in Showbiz/The Four Major Showbiz Awards from 1964

On our brother blog DJBC Adventures, the blog from The DJBC Happy Hour radio program on WCRS-FM in Columbus, Ohio, there is a bonus podcast from last night’s broadcast, which featured songs from 1964.  1964 was a big year in music.  Four young men from Liverpool, England made their first North American appearance on a television program on a Sunday evening in early February in New York City, launching “The British Invasion” of music.  There were a lot of great television programs, motion pictures, plays, musicals, and songs from that year.  Here is who won the Major Awards in 1964, and some of the entertainment culture from 1964.
