Moon Landing Anniversary Playlist

July 19, 2018

It's hard to believe that the first American moon landing happened just 49 years ago today. Were you around then? Do you remember hearing the news? Maybe your parents and grandparents shared stories with you about their whereabouts during the historic moments?

Whether you remember it first-hand or not, the first moon landing should be a pretty big deal to you. Here at 'NCX, we celebrate anniversaries the best way we know how --- with a little rock. Pretty fitting that the moon is one giant rock, yea?
