Summary
In the early 1950s, before rock-and-roll dominated youth and urban culture, an innovative form of music appeared on the streets of America's cities. It was a mix of strange new harmonies and nonsense syllables that came to be known as doo-wop. This program traces the development of doo-wop music and the accomplishments of musicians who made the style their own. Viewers also meet a group of enthusiasts determined to keep the doo-wop spirit alive, meeting once a month to experience the sounds, nuances, and emotions of the genre.
