43 years ago, Richard Nixon was president, we were in the midst of the Vietnam War, and the "Mary Tyler Moore Show" had just debuted on CBS.
It was also the last time a Macon band called Boogie Chillun' made music together.
But for some reason, when they got back together again after all that time, they say they felt like only a day had passed.
In a dimly lit downtown Macon loft Wednesday, the band practiced a few hundred feet from where it all started.
Keyboard player Gary Harmon said, "Next door to the original Capricorn studios on Broadway, in a warehouse."
Harmon said Boogie Chillun' rocked in the late 1960s, as one of the bands signed by Macon record producer, Phil Walden.
