Playlist for Jimmy's Stars

One of my favorite aspects of Jimmy's Stars was the richness of the culture. Rodman had a way of capturing the look, feel, and sound of the era. Here is a playlist I gathered. Some of the songs and/or artists are mentioned directly. Others are just from the same era in general. In fact, a few are probably of the depressing sort that our heroine would have avoided. I hope you enjoy!

What a terrific idea. One gets a real feel for an era by listening to the music of that time.
