What Turns 50 in 2020?

October 7th, 2020

These days, it’s hard to keep track of all of the new shows, music, and movies coming out. There’s more to watch and listen to than ever before, which is great for staying entertained. However, it can make it hard to keep track of all the amazing things that have come out in years past. 

2020 has been a memorable year for more reasons than we can possibly list in a single blog post. It also marks the beginning of a new decade. Finally, it also marks 50 years since 1970, another eventful year. 

1970 saw the continuance of the Vietnam War, deadly protests at Kent State, and the voting age lowered to 18. In pop culture, Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin died only days apart, the first episodes of All My Children aired, the Public Broadcasting Service began broadcasting, and The Beatles announced they were breaking up. It was also the year these popular songs and movies were released.
