Gratuitious information: I used to play in Sally Quinn’s house when we were both kids (she’s 8 years older than I). She was the daughter of General William “Buffalo Bill” Quinn, who was stationed in Athens, Greece at the same time as my father. It was at her house that I first heard “Rock Around the Clock” by Bill Haley, which must have been 1956. That’s generally regarded as the first rock and roll song, and I remember hearing her playing it up in her room while I was at the bottom of the stairs. Quinn, who married Post editor Ben Bradlee, is now the editor of the paper’s “religion” section.
