The Midweek Hop - Black History Month

The other half's guest post - three music videos on a theme...
(inspired by Desmond Carrington's 'The Music Goes Round')
'Rockola Tempo' 1959 Jukebox

This weeks theme is...Black History Month
Inspired by this month's Black History Month, which takes place throughout the whole of October.
To celebrate it, here's three famous black artists...
1. Blueberry Hill by Fats Domino

Apparently this is where Fats found his thrill (and was still singing about it many years later!)
'Blueberry Hill' entered the chart on 21st December 1956 reaching Number 6.

2. River Deep, Mountain High by Ike and Tina Turner

Tina right at the start of her career!
'River Deep, Mountain High' entered the chart on 9th June 1966 reaching Number 3.

3. What A Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong

One of Old Satchmo's finest tunes...
'What A Wonderful World' entered the chart on 7th February 1968 reaching Number 1.

Happy listening!
