OPENING THEME:  Good Old Rock ‘n’ Roll – Cat Mother & the All-Night Newsboys (1969 - #29: produced by Jimi Hendrix)

Background Music: Rocka-Conga - The Applejacks (1959 - #38: Philadelphia group that recorded for Cameo-Parkway Records)

Cameo Records was started in 1956 by Bernie Lowe, who used his royalties from co-writing Elvis Presley's big hit "Teddy Bear" to fund the company. The label was located in Philadelphia and capitalized on "American Bandstand" being broadcast from that city in the late '50s and early '60s. Parkway Records was formed as a subsidiary in 1958, and the two merged in 1962. The company slogan was "All the Big Ones Are on C-P", as Lowe produced 45s aimed at the teen market to make the C-P label one of the most successful independent records companies of the early '60s. However, three factors led to the label's demise: American Bandstand moved to L.A.; the British Invasion; and founder and producer Lowe tired of the grind of running an independent record company. In 1967 Lowe sold his company to Allan Klein, who renamed it ABKCO Industries.

Butterfly - Charlie Gracie (1957 - #1: C-P's first big hit, the song spent two weeks at #1; Bernie Lowe produced and co-wrote the song, which was also a hit for Andy Williams)

When We Get Married - The Dreamlovers (1961 - #10: group was named after the title of a Bobby Darin hit)

The Twist - Chubby Checker (1960 & '62 - #1: another inspired by a dance craze, the song is the only rock-n-roll number to hit #1 on the BB Hot 100, disappear from the charts, and become #1 again)
