In this, Volume 6 of the Century Kids, the narrative focuses on Matthew, the cousin of Peggy Aldrich. It is the era of communist witch hunting, and Peggy has been labeled a sympathizer, and her son Charley's radio show was taken off the air because he defended her. We get an inside look not only into the downside of the entertainment world of the 50's, but also the upside as we follow Matthew and his friends into rock-and-roll success.
