The Fabulous Fifties Stories

The war was over, the Baby Boom was exploding and the economy was expanding. Enthusiasm and excitement about the future was everywhere. Elvis, picture shows, electric appliances and cars we now call "classics" filled our lives. Things were "cool," and cool was good!

With the strengthening economy in the Fabulous 50s, Americans enjoyed a time of plenty. Goods that may have been scarce during the war years became available, and consumerism was on the rise. Many Americans' old stories from the 1950s are positive, uplifting and wholesome, reflecting traditional American values. The memories of the past you'll find here include family life, cherished holidays, fun family times in Mother's or Grandmother's kitchen, old school stories, and tales from long summer days. What's more, you can also enjoy old time radio shows and broadcasts from the 1950s, like "A Picnic for Father's Day" from Father Knows Best, "Easter Egg Dye" from The Our Miss Brooks Show, and "The Road to Bali" from The Jack Benny Show.
