Golden Oldies Galore
Golden oldies music is here to stay! Many thanks to all those who requested songs for Juke Box Saturday Night. Here are 54 of your requests. We have great 1950s music, doo wop groups, rock and roll hits, and some sixties music favorites. Because Fats Domino turned 87 this week, we have a few of his songs as well.
