    I was just a kid when most of these were recorded, but I just loved this music. I grew up with American Bandstand. Thank you for reminding me just how much fun music used to be.

  1. Ah, the years when lyrics really meant something. LOL.

    I love that!

    I used to listen to those songs all the time growing up.

  1. Travis says:

    Drilleraa: I grew up listening to this because it was my mom's music, and I grew to love it as much as she did.

    Lois: Yup...it's toe tappin' stuff!

  1. Trav, Thank you for making me feel young again, being born in 1952 by the time I was8 I was really enjoying listening to these songs. even if my Dad called it noise.

    That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
    I just might have yo go on a Doo Wop posting rampage on my blogger site.
    Big Time Hugs and Blessings

    Trav, I did copy cat you on both the blogger and word press sites.

  1. Making harmonies.....crooning in the castle.....smiling....

  1. I saw where you liked Taylor Hicks on your info page-
    I was a HUGE fan of his- However, my husband and I went to see him at a local casino a few months back- and I was not impressed at all-
    He acted like he was just ready to get thru the show- and really didn't put any effort into the show- It was a huge disappointment!

  1. Roger says:

    Good tunes Travis.

  1. Such sweet songs... they really had better stuff back then.

  1. the teach says:

    Oh you take me way back Travis! :)

  1. Chuck says:

    I'm picturing you doo-wopping and I have to smile. Awesome, Trav! Hehehehe

  1. the teach says:

    Trav, I have a tag for you - it's about songs you're into at the moment. You don't have to do it if you don't want to.

  1. Jeni says:

    Smiles abound! Very heartwarming post for an oldie like me!

  1. Travis says:

    Dana: Just give us some of that old time rock and roll!

    Shelby: YAY!

    Mike: I think the next older generation has been calling the younger generation's music noise ever since the invention of the phonograph.

    CWM: I could maybe make this a feature. There's so much good stuff out there.

    Mike: Cool!

    Mimi: Wooooo and Hoooo!

    Drama Mama: I'm sorry you had a bad experience. I've never heard of him giving anything less than 100% or being anything other than gracious.

    Roger: Thanks!

    Terra: It was pretty good.

    Teach: Let's dance! I'll check out the tag!

    Chuck: We were silly!

    Jeni: You're not an oldie...you're a goodie!
