Night Train Memories: Sounds of the Cities

Introduction to Urban Vocal Group Harmony (including Doo-Wop) 1950s to mid-1960s. Richard Kwatnoski aka "Squire," a radio producer for over 20 years for Radio Fairfax (a local free-form non-commercial station playing a unique mix of genres & styles) will help us explore through slides and music, the who, what, when and where of this very popular musical art form. Emanating from America's cities in the 1950's-1960's, the music reflected economic and racial influences. Squire's presentation will be accompanied by recordings of the most transformational groups of the era and explore sounds from the nation's major markets.
