Rare & Scratchy Rock ‘N Roll

We play lots of "doo wops," "shoobie doos," and "la la la's" on "Rare & Scratchy Rock ‘N Roll." This episode devoted entirely to those beloved nonsense lyrics.

And we’ll test your oldies I.Q. as we sample brief previews of these nonsense numbers.

We’ve selected 40 such babbling blasts from the past. Then, you get to identify them before we play longer snippets that clearly reveal the names of each record and act.

Some of the performers will surprise you. In addition to numerous rhythm and blues and doo wop acts, artists such as the Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, Neil Sedaka, and even Frank Sinatra included meaningless meanderings in some of their most meaningful melodies.

And based on the numerous names listed above, you probably know in advance some of the songs we’re going to play.

We hope you’ll play along with us on this podcast.
