Teens flocked to the dance venues……listened religiously to their local Top Forty radio stations…….purchased records being released by the area labels:

Jerden, Dolton, Etiquette, Seafair Bolo. It was a span of about a decade that can never be repeated. But the story lives in the hearts and minds of those who were there and those who were creating, producing, recording, performing, broadcasting and enjoying an era that goes down in the history books of the Pacific Northwest.
