  1. For the popular tv shows, I only know 5 out of the 10. And in the tops hits, I remember Tennessee Ernie's 16 tons. My parents had it on a record and I used to play it all the time. The yellow rose of Texas is one my dad used to sing a lot.

    1. Yep, I was born in 1951 so I remember most of this from my parents and then later it was just part of growing up. :)

  3. All a bit before my time, yet i've heard all the songs and seen all those stars and at least clips from all the shows. It was great entertainment, much better than what's around now.

  4. The "hotties" of today look pretty weak in comparison to those ladies, don't they? I wish we could just swap them out and get rid of any mention to a Kardashian!

  5. Ha,ha,ha. I was only six years old at that time. I just wanted to play outside at that time and of course eat.

    Have a funny Tuesday Sandee & Zane. See ya.

  7. I was only eight in 1955 but I know my mother watched virtually all of those tv shows. Since most of the stars were still around by 1960, I can honestly say that I thought Sophia Loren was the most beautiful woman in the world. I have always loved music so all of these songs are familiar to me, even the birth of Rock 'n Roll with Bill Haley and the Comets. Who didn't love that voice of Tennessee Ernie Ford? Have a blessed day blogging friend of mine.
