Coupled with the REMINISCING THEME from #46, John Gilliland created a documentary, "The Pop Chronicles" (Tennessee Firebird: American Country Music before and after Elvis).

"Conceptualized in 1967 after attending the Monterey International Pop Music Festival, John Gilliland’s “The Pop Chronicles” traces the history of popular music from the 1950’s through the 1960’s. Mr. Gilliland wrote, narrated and produced these 55 hours of broadcasting first airing at KRLA Pasadena, CA. in February 1969. The pop music history is told by an interleaving of Mr. Gilliland’s narration, music, and comments from the interviews of the people directly involved in the music scene of the day. The guests are: Chet Atkins, Ernie Ford, Merle Travis, Marty Robbins, Roger Miller, Hank Williams Jr. and others." UNT (link at end)

Another very interesting piece Gloria, although I cannot access the tracks from the digital library, it is most likely barring the UK from listening!! Unhappy






"WALK RIGHT BACK" Another Buddy Holly-Everlys connection.

Holly guitarist [Sonny] Curtis wrote this buoyantly optimistic post-breakup song, a No. 7 hit in 1961.

The photo where Phil looks over at Don when he got it wrong, the photo captures the moment very well.

One of the earliest national television appearances for The Everly Brothers was on the very popular Ed Sullivan variety show, on August 4, 1957, with Dan Daily as host.





Don was 20 and Phil 18. They are the epitome of cuteness and exciting talent! They handled themselves so professionally and graciously! So very much in sync - breathing, bowing, and flipping their guitars over their heads!


The Everlys sang their then explosive hit, "Bye Bye Love", followed by "Hey Doll Baby"!
