We purchased tickets – three for our neighbor and her parents and two for ourselves.
“STAND BY ME” – SPAINISH HARLEM” “UNDER THE BOARDWALK” ” CHARLIE BROWN”
“YACKITY YAK” ” THE GREAT PRENDER” “ON BROADWAY” “YOUNGBLOOD”
and the list goes on and on.
I guess trying to remember the ’50s and ’60s at our age is not easy –
and I hear music but I can’t really tell you each and every time who sings it!
But – regardless – it all came back one by one
as the songs came out to much delight.
For me, it brought back memories of our local park Tennis Courts.
I belonged to a group one step up from the Boy Scouts – called THE EXPLORERS!
We raised money for our trips and activities – one way was by holding dances at the Tennis Courts!
I think we charged 25 cents – sold soda and candy –
and someone – for my life, I can not remember who although I want to say Guy
spun those 45s!
All these songs we heard at the Alabama Theater from –
THE DRIFTERS – THE COASTERS and THE PLATTERS
were played those evenings under the park lights and stars!
A memorable concert – through the years and back in time –
this was the way it was when I was growing up!
