When asked what caused the explosion of the popularity of rock 'n roll that took place in the 1950s with him and a handful of others, Berry said,"Well, actually they begin to listen to it, you see, because certain stations played certain music. The music that we, the blacks, played, the cultures were so far apart, we would have to have a play station in order to play it. The cultures begin to come together, and you begin to see one another's vein of life, then the music came together."
