TODAY'S EXAMINER SPOTLIGHT - DONALD RIGGIO, AUTHOR OF SEVEN-INCH VINYL

It's not a mystery or a crime, but during the 1950s some parents thought rock and roll was criminal. Used to the lovey dovey tunes of the 40s and early 50s, all of a sudden there were these wild-sounding, hip-swiveling acts and parents were really worried that rock and roll would corrupt their youth.

Donald Riggio traces the history of rock and roll from it's R&B roots in his new book, "Seven-Inch Vinyl: A Rock and Roll Novel." We chatted about how his book came to be and about the book itself.

Read the Spotlight at http://exm.nr/SpotRiggio , then scroll down to the end of the Examiner column where you will find a comment box. Got memories or comments? That's the place to have your say. I added my own to start it off.

Happy reading!

Cheers,

You've got that one right. When I was a kid, my uncle had a juke box route and I earned money by typing the little labels that went into the slots to identify the 45 rpm records. Ah. memories.
