Astronaut Neil Armstrong was the first man to walk on the moon; the Chappaquiddick drowning of a young woman scandal involving Senator Ted Kennedy; the Manson killings; the Stonewall Riots; Vietnam; Woodstock and the romantic comedy anthology TV series "Love, American Style" premiered on the ABC network on Friday nights.
For the first season, Charles Fox's theme song was performed by The Cowsills, which was the family musical group that the television show "The Partridge Family" was based on. In future seasons, the theme song was performed by the Ron Hicklin Singers. They were also the voices for the TV musical group "The Partridge Family."
