Let me take you through a snapshot view of the 1950's, a view skewed by the fact that I was not even a teenager in 1950, and by 1959 I was already a mother.
Too much happened in those post-war years to give you all the cultural, historical and political details, so these are just a few of my own musical memories which stood out.
It was the decade when Pop Music and Rock 'n Roll really took off but there was other good music too. And we played records on the gramaphone or radiogram.
