This Week: Flashback 1957


nbc peacock 1957

It was the year we first saw the NBC Peacock, and when “West Side Story” was on Broadway, “Cinderella”–starring Julie Andrews was on television, Sputnik 2 was in space, Eisenhower was in the White House to begin a fourth term, and Frisbees and hula hoops were on beaches, parks and backyards.

This Thursday at 9 PM, Alan Seltzer will focus on the music and events of 1957 in another Flashback special show on “The Grooveyard”..  We’ll play all the songs that made it to number one in order, plus clips from some of the major events of the year and as many other hits from the year as possible.

Hosted by Alan Seltzer, “The Grooveyard” can be heard on 88.1 FM on Long Island, the 88.1 FM link on wcwp.org or the TuneIn app on your SmartPhone.  Feel free to send song requests, comments and suggestions via Twitter or the form below.
