1964 – year of the Beach Boy – Beatles – Battle of the Bands… the West Coast vs the East Coast, Tan vs Pale.

June 1, 1964, Sunday. Jannie doesn’t like Dave at all.

Got up at 5 am to finish my term paper. My eyes are sunburned, so wore dark glasses to school. My sister Donna is real sick. She got a sore throat and it’s all pusy, probably from surfing. Hope I don’t peal. Stuck to my diet real good, until after dinner when I made the Saffron cupcakes. Daddy and I went bike riding to Fedco and got Donna a Beatle record, but it wasn’t the right one, so we brought it back. I didn’t go modeling, was too tired. Instead I laid in the sun. I itch so bad from the sunburn on my back. Dave might come to Fosters tomorrow.

Summer vacation is almost here, so Saffron-Girl, Barbie, better get tan asap.  I regret burning myself over and over throughout the years.  Being tan was so important in California, with the beach only a few miles away.  The worst thing was being a super white California Girl in a bikini.

The Beatles – NME – 1964 LIVE

The Beach Boys – Surfer Girl (’64)

The Beatles and the Beach Boys ruled the music scene Summer of 1964.  My sister Donna loved the Beatles, I loved the Beach Boys.
