Program: My Music: Doo Wop Love Songs
Date: Thursday, Sept. 11
Time: 7 p.m.
The 1950s and doo wop love songs go hand-in-hand, like two straws and a shake. And now America’s favorite malt shop memories are back with this doo wop collection for lovers only. Hosts Jerry Butler and Cousin Brucie Morrow bring back the backseat ballads in this all new PBS celebration of great vocal groups. Recorded in May 2007 at the Ritz Theatre in Elizabeth, New Jersey, the program features performances by the Tokens, Dubs, Little Anthony and the Imperials, Larry Chance and the Earls, and a once-in-a-lifetime reunion of the Original Drifters (Ben E. King, Charlie Thomas, Bobby Hendricks and Bill Pinkney).
