What’s today’s recipe for a top pop music show? Mix some
revivals -- “Who’s Sorry Now” by Connie Francis, and Pat
Boone’s “It’s Too Soon To Know” -- with the latest rock &
rollers -- “Sweet Little 16” by Chuck Berry and Little
Richard’s “Good Golly Miss Molly.” Fold in two new dance
routines -- “The Stroll” by The Diamonds, and Al Taylor’s
“The Swivel.” Sprinkle with WMCA’s “best sound for miles
around” at 570 kc on your radio dial... and you’ll have
the greatest musical dish ever!
