Why I pick the 50’s and early 60’s

When it comes to Oldies, my favorites are from the very early days as Rhythm & Blues and Doo Wop gradually morphed into Rock ‘n Roll and became the music of teenagers. I cut it off at the early 60’s because I think The Beatles, and the rest of the “British Invasion” changed Rock ‘n Roll forever. And not necessarily for the better, in some profound ways.

I am open to and, in fact, encourage debate on this. If I am going to offer up my opinions (e.g. no dead-teenager songs) then everybody else gets to offer his or her own. That’s what this is all about. Sharing our likes, dislikes and memories of the music that has been the background to our lives.
