A three-part series in which gravel-voiced American DJ Randall Lee Rose cruises through the doo-wop archives. 1: In the fifties and early sixties, over 8,000 vocal harmony groups made records in the USA. Rose plays some classic doo-wop records from the genre's early era - from its birth in the late forties to the rise of rock 'n' roll in the fifties.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
