Ahh -- you bring back memories. I was 11 when the war ended -- so was a teen in the post war years.
A few of my memories don't agree with your information -- at least from the 40s and early 50s. Jeans didn't become popular until a little later. We were still listening to ballads and jazz. Rock and roll caught on a little later.
Your answers are excellent.
