Music all around

My teenage years were defined by the music I listened to. It played on my little silver radio that I took everywhere with me...from the edge of the cricket pitch, swimming pool, rugby field, tennis court or wherever I found myself...I was besotted! I was a number one fan of our local radio station in the Border region of South Africa, Capital Radio 604. I still hear some of their advertising jingles in my head and smile. The Capital Countdown was my favourite show presented by the legendary Kevin Savage. It was tricky recording the top hits on my cassette recorder - trying to hit the record and stop buttons to get the song and not the adverts. Those were good days - it was all about the music and the music was good. Music in the 80s... what was not to like?
