Clay Cole was one of those teenagers he was the host of his own Saturday night, pop music television show. Clay Coles SH-BOOM! is the pop culture chronicle of that exciting time, 1953-1968, when teenagers created their own music, from swing bands and pop to rhythm and blues, cover records, a cappella, rockabilly, folk-rock, and girl groups- from the British Invasion to the creation of the American Boy Band.
