My Place: Teen Songs

best-of-sam-cooke.jpg

Noting that the Rock & Roll of the 1950's and early 1960's  was a new music embraced by America's youth, this week Joel Najman's My Place looks at songs that are about teenagers or that refer to a teenager of a specific age. Early recordings by Sam Cooke, Neil Sedaka, and Chuck Berry are among the selections featured.

Listen Saturday, November 9th at 8 p.m.
