FROM PDX RETRO ~


This year the solstice falls today at 6:34 p.m. EDT. This is the “summer”
solstice in the Northern Hemisphere. The word solstice is from the
Latin solstitium, from sol (sun) and stitium (to stop). Astrologers say
the sun seems to ‘stand still’ at the point on the horizon where it 
appears to rise and set, before moving off in the reverse direction.


This 1958 single reached #26 on the Billboard Hot 100.
