Just because we feel, like, generous and stuff, we’re going to share one of our favorite songs from the 1960s. Released in 1965, ”Just Like Me” by Paul Revere and the Raiders was kind of a punky hair-raiser. It was their second big release and is our favorite PRATR song overall. Here’s a live version of the song as seen on an episode of the short-lived Hullabaloo TV series.
Did you check out the chick shaking her brain stem loose. Her name is Lada Edmund Jr and she was the Hullabaloo go-go cage girl. So, you know, back then the women kept most of their clothes on inside the cage.
At 65, Lada’s still got the kicks and is a personal trainer, fitness guru, karate expert, and former stuntwoman. We should look so good in our mid-60s.
Also of interest is an early version of the Comics A-Go-Go! logo. Back in the day, Comics A-Go-Go! was known simply as “A-Go-Go!” We sponsored the musical program Hullabaloo but after the show ended in 1966, we broadened our scope and turned to all things pop culture. In 1994, we purchased controlling interest in Action KaPow! a comic book fanzine and changed our name to “Comics A-Go-Go!” Although we still cover pop culture in its various flavors, our love for comics drives most of our ventures.
Here’s a studio album version of “Just Like Me.” Enjoy.
