1960. They were so great. One of my earliest musical memories is hearing "Wake Up, Little Susie" on the radio. Unless my memory is playing tricks on me it was either in my maternal grandfather's cabinet-making shop or in his car which was parked in front of the shop. The song came out in 1957, so that would have been very near the end of his life. It wasn't my earliest musical memory, though, because I also remember hearing Elvis singing "Hound Dog," which was released a year earlier. That memory also is associated with my maternal grandparents. That whole side of my family were great music lovers.
