From “Rock Around the Clock” and “At the Hop” to the lush orchestrations and soulful tones of the “Sound of Philadelphia,” the City of Brotherly Love boasts a rich history of pop, rock ’n’ roll and rhythm and blues music from the 1950s through the 1980s, an era that saw the emergence of such stars as Bill Haley and the Comets, Frankie Avalon, Fabian Forte, Bobby Rydell, Danny and the Juniors, The Delfonics, Dee Dee Sharp, The Stylistics, Billy Paul, The O’Jays, Teddy Pendergrass, and Harold Melvin and The Blue Notes. The music from this period not only continues to endure today, but in many ways helped establish the longstanding, mutually beneficial relationship between music and television, particularly with the dawn of such shows as American Bandstand.

We’ll not only talk about the music of this era, we will play some of the music of this era when Jim Rosin joins us in our second hour. Jim’s latest book, Philly Pop, Rock, Rhythm & Blues, is a nostalgic look at the music scene in Philadelphia that also features interviews with many of the artists, record producers and radio personalities who helped contribute to Philadelphia music history.






Also this week: We’ll take a look at the twists and turns in the world of barrel racing, the only sport for women in pro rodeo, when Darcy LaPier joins us in our first hour. After fifteen years in Hollywood, Darcy moved back to her home state of Oregon, where she proceeded to transform herself into one of the top barrel racers on the circuit, earning the most money as a rookie in her first year in competition alone.

Darcy’s story is part of the focus of Rodeo Girls, a new six-part reality series that premieres Wednesday, Dec. 11 and Thursday, Dec. 12 on A&E.



Plus: Greg Ehrbar with a new DVD report that will include a look back at the histories of Here’s Lucy and The Mothers-in-Law.
