Rock, Rhythm and Doo Wop

Airs Friday, May 29 at 9:30 p.m. on KPBS TV

Above: Little Anthony and the Imperials sing their hits Tears on My Pillow, Going Out of My Head, Hurt So Bad and Shimmy Shimmy Ko Ko Bop.

This program reunites original legends of rock’n’roll for a once-in-a-lifetime performance. Hosted by pop music legends Frankie Valli, Jerry (The Iceman) Butler and Lloyd Price, the program also boasts a surprise appearance by Little Richard. Among the many performers is Fred Parris, who comes out of retirement after a decade to join the Five Satins in a performance of In the Still of the Night, the number-one oldies single of all time. Hal Miller joins the Rays after 40 years of retirement to sing Silhouettes; and Kathy Young is reunited with the Innocents to sing A Thousand Stars for the first time since they recorded the hit when Young was just 14 years old.
