The Bear Necessities

Rockin' The Joint - 1950's (mostly 55-59)

Today wed are hopping on board the Rock ’n’ Roll train and disembarking when we pull in to the Rock Station 1950 and taking a look around this decade of music. This decade was the birth of Rock ’n’ Roll and we will be featuring groups from this time. We can’t take a look around at this decade with popping into Sun Studios in Memphis to hear what sounds are emanating from one of the original Independent record companies.

Deja Voodoo - those guys were great. I think an instrumental show at some point with some of their stuff would be a great show. Thanks EC.
