What was on the radio the night you were conceived?

Did the music your parents were listening to shape your life? "Chattanooga ChooChoo" for me, and in my long-ago days as a dj, I would play any train song that came down the tracks. Lordyas was, in a needed digression on one of the sillier religious creat0r-of-the-universe threads, figured out he was likely created to "The Ballad of Davy Crockett". Who inspired your birth? Google "number one hit in xxxx" where ""xxxx" is the month your parents did it, and let us know.

pretty sure there was no music playing on the radio on a Dutch freighter in the middle of the Atlantic in 1956

maybe a Dutch sailor singing ? something?

@jespah,
"Every mornin' at the mine you could see him arrive, he stood 6'6" and weighed 245, Big Jawn...". Can we trade birthdays? And "I Get Around". Wow, the a2k power couple strikes gold. Well, the lapping waves and sseabirds cries would have been a pretty decent soundtrack too, beth.

@MontereyJack,
No lapping waves - huge storm. The way hamburger tells it, it was the reason they were below deck instead of at the table eating the food all the sick passengers couldn't manage.

@MontereyJack,
Hmmmm. Frenesi/Artie Shaw and His Orchestra (late Feb or early March 1941).

I learned as a adult from my adult cousins that my parents were staying at my mother's brother's house, since my Aunt Nan had just come home from the hospital with their first child (she was 41), my parents there to help out. Their next child was adopted a few years later. She's not a baby boomer either, a year or so earlier than the BBs. Think of three grown female cousins laughing..

We didn't make guesses at that time about the music.

My brain keeps thinking that was in the house I remember the family having when some years later we moved back to California, but no, it was a house in the San Fernando Valley that I've no memories of ever being in but certainly was... in my own small way at the time. My parents moved to Ohio (AAF, Wright Field), shortly after my birth.

"Personality" was the number 1 hit when I was conceived. Were my parents listening to it? I have no idea.

@Roberta,
There were a few Personality records in different years. I know which one was in your year, kid. Very Happy

@MontereyJack,
Amapola (Pretty Little Poppy) for me. At first I thought maybe we didn't have radio then. That was until I saw Dale had answered.

I believe I remember hearing Chattanooga Choo Choo when my folks brought me home.
