Objective

Shake, rattle and roll to this new group looking at the sounds of the 60's and 70's. Listen again, and if you feel the urge, get up and dance to the music that got us all twistin' and shoutin'. Dust off your old 45s, EPs, and LPs in the loft and boogie on down! (CDs and cassettes also welcome). Enjoy a nostalgic musical step back to the era when the sounds of the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Tamla Motown, Cliff, Elvis and many more were top of the Hit Parade.
