Step back into time and live, or relive, Tucsons local culture, music and entertainment scene - evolving and revolving- over five decades. The local entertainment scene in Tucson, Arizona during the 1950s through 1985 was vibrant- from the 50s rock and roll of the Dearly Beloved to the 80s with the Pills, Giant Sandworms and everything in between- classic rock, disco, alternative, punk, hard core, country, swing and Big Band. Hundreds of bands and thousands of entertainers over three decades. Within these pages are the memories and the experiences of those people and places. These are the original articles and interviews published in several local newspapers that covered the Tucson entertainment scene over the decades. Follow their stories through the years- the big breaks, record releases, hot performances and duds, break ups, tragedies, personal insights and struggles. This is the first of three volumes covering the years between 1950 and 1985. Volume II carries on the entertainment from 1986 through 1989. Volume III covers the years between 1989 through the 1990s.
