Rock Is on Its Way Out
Don Page features Stan Freberg's "Payola Roll Blues."
Jan. 10, 1960
Don Page did not dig rock 'n' roll music.
How else can you explain these opinions, looking ahead to radio in the 1960s.
"There are signs (if my mail is an indication) that the teen-ager is getting smart and realizing there are other things in life besides rock 'n' roll and hot rods," Page wrote. "If this is true, then radio is in for a swingin' era during the 60s. The accent will be on good music, top sports and expanded news coverage."
Man, he must have been disappointed. Any 1960 teens out there who were giving Mr. Page the wrong idea?
