    You have to hunt a bit to find the list (at least I did).

    I see Kurt still gives me a credit for the history info I sent him. That's nice to see. Maybe we should "talk" about the bit about R&B being used for WCS in the 50s. What is on film from the 50s for Western Swing/West Coast Swing is at higher speeds than is generally acknowledged. But then, they made use of "single rhythm" for those faster songs, and it was taught as an option as part of overall lessons.

    Oops I was going to say:
    Click on the side bar item labeled: Dances Styles, history, music, syllabus, demos.

    Only list I really looked at was Hustle, since that what I was "googling" for!
    I know people are always looking for fairly current or still popular tunes;
    I noticed in several list Artists that I know.
