Gettin' in the Groove

Music is a big, like HUGE, thing in my life, and it plays a big part in the story of Ontario. While I was working on the story, I decided that I needed to make a playlist. Ontario works at an authentic 1950s diner, and I wanted to feel like I was there. I wanted to be immersed in the story, and dang if this doesn't do it! I did some research and made a playlist of my favorite songs that would be playing at Maggie's Diner and I now fondly refer to that list as "Ontario's Jukebox." Take a listen! You're bound to know some of these great songs!
