Mickey O'Halloran Newspaper Clippings, 1969 - 1971

Charlestown's Mickey O'Halloran did a LOT in the world of Boston nightlife during a decades-long career, which started in the late 1960s. There's no need for me to rehash too much of it here, since the Music Museum of New England has a short but solid bio of him, by A.J. Wachtel, on their site:

Chuck White, of Motherlode and the David Bieber Archives [see Chuck's Business Card Collection page], was one of Mickey's proteges, and at some point Mickey gave Chuck many of his archives to preserve. These archives currently reside at the David Bieber Archives in Norwood, MA.

Among the many items Mickey gave to Chuck was a file folder with a stack of dozens of newspaper clippings from 1969 - 1971. Most of them were from the Boston Herald - Traveler. Mickey was managing the Kenmore entertainment establishment K-K-K-Katy's at the time, and the club advertised their events weekly.

Looking at these clips is an amazing trip into the world of nightlife in Boston and its suburbs (stretching to Framingham and beyond) during that era.

These scans in the slideshow below were done 1/3 of a page at a time, so some ads can be redundant. Forgive us.

And this is just a sampling of Mickey's amazing clippings folder, we may add more slideshows at a later date.
