* {{Buccaneer Broadcaster}}: Many illegal radio stations popped up who operated on boats just outside the coastlines, where they couldn't get prosecuted. They owed their popularity to the fact that they played {{Rock}} in a time when most mainstream radio stations didn't.

* ''Anime/ChildrenWhoChaseLostVoices'' is implied to be set sometime in the 60s due to Morisaki (Who appears to be in his late 30s or early 40s) mentioning that he fought in the European theatre of UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, Arch Angel's modified AH-1 Cobra helicopter, and the presence of typewriters and vehicles common during the era.

The Sixties were also the time of UsefulNotes/TheSpaceRace - Following the launch of Sputnik in 1957, the first manned launches took place in 1961 (First Russian UsefulNotes/YuriGagarin in April, followed closely by Alan Shepard in May.) The idea of people actually entering space for the first time led to a new fascination with Science, and a corresponding boom to ScienceFiction. John F. Kennedy ordered the seemingly impossible - putting men on the Moon. After his death, America's resolve was steeled, and the course was set. The route to the Moon was very nearly derailed by the disastrous Apollo 1 fire, claiming the lives of 3 American astronauts in a test. Over a year of unmanned testing went on, trying to repair the mistakes. A return to space flight in late 1968 led to an epic Christmas flyby of the Moon by Apollo 8, one of the most watched television broadcasts in history. Finally, in 1969, Neil Armstrong and [[RetiredBadass Buzz Aldrin]] set foot on the Moon, fulfilling Kennedy's mission and marking the first time a human being had walked on another celestial body.
