Joni Mitchell, 44 years ago

The year is 1965 and she is 22 or so here, performing “Me and My Uncle”, a song written by John Phillips (later of the Mamas and Papas) on Oscar Brand’s Canadian show Let’s Sing Out, which from memory was on Saturday nights here at 6 or 6.30. As was The Johnny Cash Show (see here for what you missed), Hootenanny, and Hullabaloo, which featured the Stones, the Animals, Ike and Tina Turner, the Supremes. . . TV really was better then.
