‘Herman’s Hermits: Listen People 1964-1969’ to air on AETN Nov. 29

Posted 26 Feb 2013

“Herman’s Hermits: Listen People 1964-1969” sets the record straight on one of the most underrated bands of the 1960s Thursday, Nov. 29, at 7 p.m. on the Arkansas Educational Television Network (AETN). The program repeats Monday, Dec. 3, at 10 p.m.

Second only to The Beatles in record sales, Herman’s Hermits recorded some of the ’60s most memorable songs. Their first record, “I’m Into Something Good,” was released in 1964 and rocketed to No. 1 in the United Kingdom and No. 13 in the United States, but the band proved to be much more than a pop sensation. Their carefully crafted music is the highlight of this insightful program, which features more than 22 complete performances captured on film. Songs include classic hits “I’m Into Something Good,” “Can’t You Hear My Heartbeat,” “Wonderful World,” “Mrs. Brown You’ve Got a Lovely Daughter,” “I’m Henry VIII, I Am,” “There’s a Kind of Hush” and more.

The musical celebration continues Nov. 29 with “John Sebastian Presents: Folk Rewind” at 8:30 p.m. Folk legend John Sebastian reflects and remembers the very best of the folk years through highlights archival folk (traditional, pop and folk rock) era classics from the vault. The special culminates into a crescendo of excitement with a reunion of folk singers, including: Barry McGuire, Roger McGuinn of The Byrds, The Chad Mitchell Trio, Chad & Jeremy, Jesse Colin Young of The Youngbloods, and more.
