Daily Doo Wop

We are a time machine to the past….with songs dating from 1952 to the British Invasion in 1964.

Hooray for Hollywood — and TV and music. From the Hollywood Walk of Fame to the Lone Ranger to Ed Sullvian to Annette Funicello, this era had lots of stars and fun for the whole family.

Updated twice a week. You’ll find vintage 50’s and 60’s TV series, game shows, cartoons and shorts, children’s programming, and commercials.

So trivia are unimportant details or facts? Nonsense! How well do you know your 50s and 60s music or TV shows and movies? Come test your knowledge. Nothing is too small.

With rhythm and blues, rock and roll, rockabilly, and crossovers from country music. That’s why we go beyond Doo Wop.As DJ’s at the time said, “If it’s a hit, it plays.”
