How Music Changed

    With this show, we can really hear how new trends in pop music establish a strong foothold, and also help to reinvigorate the rock and roll music that had been in short supply for the past few years.

    This segment contains no less than four tracks featuring female artists, and three instrumental tracks as well, interspersed between the typically awesome R&B tracks (and a pair of ridiculous “misses” as well), for a record-breaking total of fifteen hit sides in one hour!

    Featured tracks include:

    Telstar – The Tornadoes

    The Lonely Bull – Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass

    Tell Him – The Exciters

    Pepino the Italian Mouse – Lou Monte

    Up on the Roof – The Drifters

    Your Cheating Heart – Ray Charles

    Walk Like a Man – The Four Seasons

    You’ve Really Got a Hold on Me – The Miracles

    Don’t Make Me Over – Dionne Warwick

    Cinnamon Cinder – The Pastel Six

    Our Day Will Come – Ruby and the Romantics

    End of the World – Skeeter Davis
