A weekly-ish blog sharing my series of collages about growing up in the South during the 1950s.

Teenagers did the jitterbug to "top 40 music" on American Bandstand beginning in 1952, four years before Dick Clark was hired. A television station in Lake Charles, LA, later hosted their own version of the popular show and invited area high school students to appear. I was very happy to be included - not only to be on the show, but also because of our excused absence from school.
