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 his second term, and Frisbees and hula hoops were on beaches, parks and backyards. Alan Seltzer will play the top 50 hits of 1957 along with as many bonus hits as possible from the year in Flashback edition of “The Grooveyard”.
