During a conversation with my wife and daughter, the subject of the first Rock N Roll song came up.
What was it?
It was probably some obscure Black gospel type thing. Gaby recalls the first Rock n Roll song she remembers hearing was Rock Around the Clock.
I clearly remember the first time I heard Rock N Roll. It was 1956. I was 13. My brother and I were searching the air waves in rural South Carolina just out of curiosity. Just passing time.
Suddenly, a sound we’d never heard before. Did not know it then, but it proved to be the first Rock N Roll music we ever heard.
Our reaction was immediate. WOW. That was different. What is this?
Most of my generation were there at the beginning. Do you remember?
