For More Golden Oldies Music

Our Rec Room has daily featured doo wop, rock and roll, R&B, or rockabilly songs that were hits during the first era of rock and roll (that is, from about 1952 until the British invasion in 1964). After a song is featured, it then goes into the jukebox. You are welcome to listen to any of the 40+ selections there. Thank you for stopping by The Daily Doo-Wop.
