This first era of rock and roll dates (more or less) from Eisenhower’s first election in 1952 to The British Invasion in 1964. Doo wop was a signature sound with its beautiful vocal harmonies, beat, and nonsense syllables, but there was a lot of pioneering going on with rhythm and blues, rock and roll, rockabilly, and crossovers from country music. That’s why we go beyond the doo wop genre per se and explore those years. Each blog post is just a mosaic. When put together, the posts start to provide a picture of the time. Please visit the Rec Room for a featured record on the record player, a TV with four channels, and a jukebox with 60+ songs. We have an all request Juke Box Saturday night in the rec room each weekend so you can hear your favorites from the 50s and 60s. There is also a Daily Doo Wop for videos of those golden oldies.
