On "The Group Harmony Review" at midnight, the entire show is devoted to the music of 1954. It is Volume Two of a special I did early in February, focusing on R&B songs from 60 years ago and tracing the roots of R&B and rock 'n' roll with songs from The Cadillacs, The Five Keys, The Clovers, The Flamingos (pictured) and many others.
