Cruisin’ 50’s and 60’s is a sixteen-record series on Increase Records, CRUISIN’ THE FIFTIES AND SIXTIES, is a year-by-year recreation of pop music radio during the years 1955 through 1970.

Each album is not just a collection of the top pop music of a particular year, but a total recreation by a top disk jockey (of that year) doing his original program over a major pop music station. That means actual commercials, promotional jingles, sound effects, newscast simulations and even record hop announcements in addition to the original records themselves.

CRUISIN’ producer Ron Jacobs monitored thousands of feet of tape, travelled over 10,000 miles and rooted through forgotten files and cluttered basements for old commercials, station promos and jingles. He also managed to get clearances for 84 different records, of which 42 are certified million-sellers, and allare from the Top 30 of their respective years.

The disk jockeys who appear on the series were picked after a month of carefully researching a decade’s issues of BILLBOARD, including tabulating all disk jockey mentions. The names were then cross checked with audience rating services and longtime radio expert Bill Gavin—all this just to determine with jocks on which stations represented each year most accurately.

To have a cover concept as unique as the content of the CRUISIN’ series, it was decided to take a young couple (Peg and Eddie) and age them (in comic strip frames) through each year, noting carefully the changes in dress and hair styles, as well as social attitudes.

Thus, Peg graduates from a Fifties pony tail to a Sixties Jackie Kennedy bouffant/flip… while Eddie lets his flat top grow out. There’s an Edsel on one cover (1957) and Alfred Hitchcock’s PSYCHO is on a marquee of the drive-in on another (1960). On a third cover, regular gasoline is priced at under twenty cents (Eddie was pumping gas that year, 1958) and Eddie’s friend is wearing a WE SHALL OVERCOME button on a fourth (1962).

Peg and Eddie and their world—our world— were created by Jere Alan Brian, Increase Records vice president, and Paul Gruwell, Increase art director.
