It’s February, 1952

We’ve reach February, 1952 in our adventure through audio history – 25 years to the month before I was born. Alas back in 2021, the Scovell family have all come down with a cold that Sadie brought back from her first foray into Nursery… so we’ll make this a light entry while we convalesce.

The songs of February, 1952

We’ll make a bumper February, 1952 playlist to make up for the lack of commentary. Combining the main pop chart:
