1950's Music Memories
Huddled with ears glued to a radio or hunched over a record player, teenagers had never heard anything like it before. It was wild and free and ripped the dull fabric of life. They called it "Rock & Roll" and it quickly became an obsession and a way of life. It challenged social values of the time, and was the soundtrack to the lives of teenagers.
The power of music to unlock memories is universal. Colour or Paint in these 1950's singers and remember Rockabilly, Rhythm and Blues and the joy of Rock and Roll!
