Disneyland Grad Nite - 1965

Are you ready for some Vintage Disneyland Grad Nite posts? They’ll be more next week, but lets started off today with this beautiful brochure from Grad Nite 1965. Be sure and check out my previous Grand nite 65 (and 64) post here (link).

That’s got to be one of the best Grad Nite covers I’ve ever seen, I so dig that art work!
















Does that really say what it looks like it says about KFWB? "Featuring Color Radio's popular DJ Larry McCormick." For those L.A. readers, that's the same Larry McCormick that spent over three decades hosting KTLA-5 News.

Wow, great item... it's hard to imagine any amusement park producing such an elaborate brochure for grad night these days. I wonder how many schools will participate this year?

My dad was at KFWB in those days. "Color Radio" was a takeoff on "color TV" which was just emerging. http://rds.yahoo.com/_ylt=A0oGdLhrDwhMLIQBF.NXNyoA;_ylu=X3oDMTEzZmplNzM2BHNlYwNzcgRwb3MDMQRjb2xvA3NrMQR2dGlkA0g1NTNfMTYy/SIG=1250v3b0d/EXP=1275683051/**http%3a//www.colorradio.com/color_radio_history.htm.

OldDLFan, thank you for the info and that fascinating link. It does seem like an odd choice of words if you look at it without any historical context, it's still a bit odd with the context.

Grad Night 65

My yellow dress girl
Walk slow
Let the night go on
Reseda is tomorrow
I made a wish
As Snow White looked on

I've heard that DL no longer makes the grads dress up for Grad Nite. NO FAIR! We had to wear a suit or sport coat, dress shirts, ties, slacks and dress shoes! The women had to wear dresses or pantsuits. You weren't allowed in the park if you didn't meet the dress code.

"And it’s all about Color Radio.”

Bob Sande: “Which is what?”

Me: “It’s an incredibly entertaining team of deejays, each with a distinctive and appealing personality and it’s a stream of compelling content unlike anything you’ve ever heard before. It’s programming that could change the sound of radio forever...”

When Disney dropped the dress code in the 90's I was told that one of Eisner's kids got upset that he had to wear a coat and tie so it was dropped the next year.
