 Doo Wop Fans, the time has come to check your answers to the 20 Doo Wop test questions. Once again, we THANK NYCFIRE.net member "memory master", aka Charlie T., for passing this on.

 So, take out your answer sheet and see how you did:

 1) C - The movies over, it's 4 O'clock
 2) B - Blackboard Jungle
 3) A - Angel
 4) C - Blueberry Hill
 5) A - Mr Sandman
 6) C - Sun
 7) B - Charlie Brown
 8) A - Mac Heath
 9) C - Tutti Fruiti
 10) C - Alan Freed
 11) A - Little Richard
 12) C - Annette Funjicello

 20) C - Maybelline

 So Doo Wop Fans, how'd you do ? Hope there was no cheating. And if you did well, let's face it; "You really are an OLD Man".

 So go out there and celebrate. Maybe get yourself a couple of Micky Ds Big Macs and Fries Combo. 

 ENJOY, "You earned it".

 And while you are at the counter ordering your celebration meal, maybe you can sing this old Doo Wop Memory Song called "I'm Hungary" and dance while you wait.

Sorry, Willy.  My reward is a bran muffin and a plate of kale (no dressing).  Even if I did get 'em ALL.  :(

I went to the same elementary school as Bill Haley (but long afterward}. I got his autograph during a visit when I was fourth grade. It's long since been lost. My mother-in-law did a lot better. She and her sisters found Frank Sinatra smoking a cigarette leaning against a building in Midtown Manhattan in 1942. Darn if she doesn't still have his autograph!

Excellent choice Dan. Bill Black's combo put forth some good music. As you probably know, he was the bass player for Elvis at one time early on.

They performed an excellent version of "Looking For An Echo" prior to Kenny Vance & The Planetones release around 1975. Rest In Peace Jerry and thanks for the memories.
