In the late 1960's into the dearly 1970's a sub-genre of American popular music arose that was labeled "Bubblegum Music" by it's entrepreneurial creators.

Characterized by simple but catchy melodies and instrumentation, sugary feel-good lyrics and a contrived childlike innocence, these pop ditties were universally panned by the critics, loved by the kids, and sold by the many millions.

This week Joel Najman's My Place program features memorable bubblegum classics by the 1910 Fruitgum Company, Ohio Express, the Archies and others.
