50's & 60's Rock Rewind

Posted by WVIA Admin

Airs Saturday, September 6th at 8:30p

From the R&B pioneers to the pop teen crooners, the 1950s and early 1960s were an exciting musical time for the youth of America. In this all new MY MUSIC special, the spotlight shines on the sounds of the '50s and '60s rock and pop scene with all archival footage of the hit makers in their prime. Fast songs, slow dances and the back beat were all the rage as teenagers tuned in to their radios as they "readied for their steadies', and went from pony tails to proms. The age of innocence and adolescence created Rock and Roll's first revolution, with the songs that take us back to those happy days of the 1950s and early 1960s.
