If you have every wondered who put the bop in the bop she bop she bop then Alabama Public Television has your answer. APT is hosting two Doo Wop Live in Birmingham concerts featuring the original acts that made the now-classic songs popular. Designed as a fundraiser for APT’s educational mission, the concerts put on stage Gene Chandler (“Duke of Earl”); The Drifters, featuring Charlie Thomas (“Under the Boardwalk and “There Goes My Baby”); The Coasters, featuring Carl Gardner (“Yakety Yak” and “Charlie Brown”), Bobby Lewis (“Tossin’ and Turnin’”); and Doo Wop’s newest sensation, 13-year-old “Kid Kyle,” who wowed audiences on PBS’ recent “Doo Wop Love Songs.”

Cost: $100 (add $50 for meet and greet). Tickets available by calling the Alys Stephens Center at 975-ARTS or by pledging online at
