To the editors:

I want to thank Adam Langer and the Reader for bringing back some fabulous memories of the rock and roll scene in the Chicagoland of the 1960's ["Glory Days," January 13]. The biographical updates and the then and now photos were really groovy! Here are a few more bands of that wonderfully exciting and virgin era; Saturday's Children, The Flock, Little Boy Blues, Bangor Flying Circus, The Danny Hoogland Explosion, and Baby Huey and the Baby Sitters. These groups were just as popular in the club circuit as those mentioned in your excellent article, but they could never get that one break.
