  1. After exploring a handful of the blog posts on your web site,
    I truly like your way of writing a blog. I added it to my bookmark
    webpage list and will be checking back in the near
    future. Take a look at my website as well and
    let me know what you think.

  2. Reblogged this on Jam-Tex and commented:

    I have been researching the best songs of 1955. It was a great year. Doo wop, jazz, country, and folk music were important. Plus the sounds coming out of Memphis and New Orleans are incredible. And of course, Chuck Berry lit up the scene with his jaw dropping Maybellene!
