During the months of April, May and June we surveyed our listeners to find out their favorite 50’s and early 60’s songs and artists. Wow! We received over 200 entries from a number of listeners and began compiling, counting and defining the artists and songs. On June 26 we premiered the first of the listings, roughly from #65 to #36. Below is a list of those songs along with the artist who performed them. Do not include the Special Requests as those were played at the request of several of our listeners.

On July 3, 2016 we will unveil the top 35 songs as identified by our listeners. Listen in at KSBR FM 88.5 or and hit Listen Live!
