Welcome To Stopadoodledoo's Retro World



Welcome fellow retroettes to my blog the date is 19th January 2011 but im hoping to take you back to the far off days of black and white TV and the sounds of the 50's 60's 70's & 80's music, films, & products, of those far off days when everything was a whole lot better.

No rules really just no swearing and i ask if you take anything from this site you please do not put it anywhere else this is for YOUR personal pleasure Only and if you need to join the larger files please use Hjsplit.

I'm Now Going To Concentrate On The Charts From 1952 - 1990 The Whole Top 40's Or What They Were Back In The Day. If Anythings Down Please Message Me So I Can Then Sort.

So sit back and enjoy with me once again the golden age of RETRO.
