124 for the 1950s


This is a different kind of musing; none of my thoughts or observations. In fact, unless you were around in the 1950s, as I was, it will probably be a meaningless musing. If that is the case, please don’t give up on me.

However for those of the 1950s: This musing is a listing of 124 vocalists – men, women and groups. Every one of them performed in the 1950s. Maybe as you journey through the artists’ names, they might ring a few bells and put a smile on your face. So take a slow, enjoyable journey down memory lane, back to when life was good, back the time of our music.
