I CAME OF AGE IN THE 50S LISTENING TO DOO WOP AND EARLY R/B MUSIC THRU STATIONS LIKE WLAC & WDET. THEN LIFE INTERFERED AND I HAD TO GO TO WORK. I AM NOW FREE AGAIN AND ABLE TO ENJOY THE PLEASURES I MISSED ALL THOSE YEARS. AFTER RESEARCHING THE WEB FOR MY MUSIC MEMORIES I AM AMAZED AT THE AMOUNT AND ARTISTS I HAD NEVER HEARD OF IN MY IMPRESSIONABLE YOUTH.

I AM QUOTE FAMILIAR WITH THE WHITE DUPREES LIKE, “YOU BELONG TO ME”. BUT, THE DUPRIES WITH “KISSY FACE“ ------ WOW?!

ANYWAY I WILL BE LOOKING AT YOUR WEBSITE FOR MUSIC I LIKE.
