There was also a slot-car track at 25th and walker. Anyone remember the dances at the Lions Club, IOOF Hall, National Guard Armory???????

I danced at the Lion's Center on S. Robinson when I was in the 6th grade (1962). My mom would take me and my "neighborhood boyfriend" in her station wagon and drop us off....his mom would pick us up later in her station wagon. I remember slow dancing to "Put Your Head On My Shoulder" and "What's Your Name".....boy, those were the days! Love those Doo Wop songs!!

When I first started going to the Lions Club you would take your own records and they played on a hi-fi. Later they got a juke box and we picked the music and it played for free. Slow dancing is best remembered at the IOOF hall. It was upstairs and had wooden floors. Day or night the place was dark. Boys on one side of the room and girls on the other.

I don't think I remember the Summer Fun Kit.

Hey was anyone listening to KOMA on a particular Friday (or could have been a Saturday) night in 1969 when they played Suspicion by Elvis and the version by Terry Stafford? They played them both one after the other for about an hour and had a poll as to who's version was the best. I believe Stafford won that one. His version was better than Elvis' in my opinion. I'm surprised I remember that.

Yo', papaou, Dennis (we pronounced it Denny's) was great! However,
Daddy Pruner couldn't stand their glazed donuts. One morning brother and I
came to the office and Daddy Pruner was sticking the donuts to the wall.
Daddy Pruner said, and I repeat, "they don't cook the donuts! They're raw!"

At any rate, Tarzan and Fretwell's was a Saturday morning staple. Do you

It seemed as if the guy was standing in a vacant lot or field. How about Tarzan's "yell" and all the animals come running; elephants, lions, every thing.

Remember in the old comedy movies or cartoons when someone would call for help and your hear a distant voice yell "help is on the way" and they showed Tarzan's animal stampede, motorcycle cops and paddy wagons coming out of a garage, fire trucks turning the corner, all kinds of stuff. I still lmao when I see or think about them.

Definition of Doo Wop---
Doo-wop music is often comprised of four-chord progressions. The lyrics tend to be repetitive, simple, dialectical, and awkwardly-phrased. Some are even grammatically incorrect. Nevertheless, many transcend these limitations to convincingly express such complex feelings as disillusionment, desire, and love.

I think Doo Wop is some of the most romantic music....probably more than you wanted to hear from me!!

Yes, I used to dance on "The Scene". They invited different schools each week. And yes, Ronnie Kay's wife, Deanna (I think that was her name), was there giving the boys instructions that they could NOT hold the girls close to them when slow dancing. She demonstrated on my boyfriend on NOT WHAT TO DO....he loved it, she was very well endowed!
