Cruise The Streets of Harlem with:


By 1955, it was very UNCOOL to name your vocal group after a bird or a flower. Why? Well, because the most successful doo wop/R&B; group in the land was named after a car. Thus, the beginning of the car naming trend. The Cadillacs made history when “SPEEDO” not only became a huge top 3 R&B; hit in ’55, but also made it to an impressive and virtually unheard of #17 crossover on the Pop lists. This week Matt The Cat will dig up some Cadillacs spare parts, so we can cruise in style. Only on HARLEM, The 50s on 5.
