Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

The first College Hour entertainers for the 1965 Fall Semester were the Dillards (Dean Webb, Douglas Dillard, Mitchell Jayne, and Rodney Dillard, left to right), a popular bluegrass group, who performed on September 28, 1965 to a packed house. The Dillards were one of the first bluegrass groups to have electrified their instruments in the mid-1960s. At the start of the 1960s, rock music was banned on campus, and many students complained about the continual “old men” music programs at FJC. Eventually that ban was lifted, and such popular groups as the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, the Sunshine Company, and Poco performed.
