CLA Radio 05/01/15: One-Hit Wonders (1955-1965)

The next ConservativeLA Radio show (on Duane FM in the Hughniverse, Friday night, 05/01/15, 7:00 Pacific/10:00 Eastern–and at 9:00 in Dallas) will consist of a very random sampling of one-hit wonders from the mid-1950s to the mid-1960s (another theme suggestion from Breck Nichols).

Hope you can stop by and listen, and join us in chat!

Here’s the Spotify playlist.
