Radiodiffusion Internasionaal -- popular world music of the 60's and 70's

"Radiodiffusion Internasionaal is devoted to the evolution of popular music from Africa, the Middle East, India and Asia and the proliferation of Western influences on these non-Western cultures. The focus is primarily the music from the mid 60's to the mid 70's." (Description from the front page of the site.) Slightly differently formatted version of the website here. Nice set of links, too (scroll down to the Words and Pictures section).

mid-'60s to the mid-'70s

I'm gonna keep correcting people on here — plural dates are not possessive. So there's no apostrophe. The reverse single quote is used in place of the century ’60s.

I am willing to forgive misplaced apostrophes in the face of such an amazing collection of music. Wow. Wow wow wow.
