Doo Wop Wednesday: The Neon Buzz

Starting next Wednesday, we will begin featuring a weekly column entitled The Neon Buzz, which will discuss the ongoing efforts of the Doo Wop Preservation League (Website / Facebook / Twitter), new and pending projects around the island, and different ways that we can all get involved and help preserve the Wildwoods' history.

We will also get back to profiling a different "Doo Wop" motel or other institution each week, so if you have any suggestions for the subject you'd like to see featured, drop us a line at

Even better if you have photos or personal reflections to share!

(Here's a look back at one of our previous features on the Mango Motel)

On to other matters, in case you missed it, Trudi Gilfillian wrote an excellent piece on how Doo Wop architecture is appeal to a new generation of fans for the Sunday edition of The Press of Atlantic City.

Generating interest among younger Wildwood enthusiasts is a vital topic, especially poignant in the wake of the island's collection of Doo Wop motels being named to the Society for Commercial Archeology's "Falling by the Wayside" list for 2011.

This is one of the many talking points we will delve into, moving forward.
