*JAP* BEATING THE WINTER BLUES INSTALMENT 2

Drag out those old LPs, dust them off, and crank up the turntable.

 

Here come the 50s, 60s, 70s . Those singalong tunes, the cheesy lyrics, the falsetto yodelling of Slim Whitman, the brassy trumpets and the salsa music. The heart broken cowboys lamenting lost loves, accompanied by mournful guitar twanging. You no longer own a turntable? Chucked out the old records? Not to worry. Just turn the radio dial to LM Radio, which is pumping out pretty much non-stop music of our youth. Reprising a few of the old dance steps will your blood flowing, and warm you up. Dancing not your thing? Then go & sit in the sun. Bask a little. Turn up the radio. Enjoy!

*JAP = just a paragraph to keep my blog ticking over, whilst I’m busy with longer posts.

    Hi Alison. I was recently introduced to Magic 828, a Cape Town based AM radio station that only plays music from our youth. I’m loving listening to it in my car. Nothing like the old times!

  2. Aaah, LM Radio! Tuned in straight away and yes, it’s just as cheesy as ever. And just as compelling. Thanks, Alison.

  3. Good to know I’m not alone. I’ve have a Spotify nostalgia playlist full of yearning and teenage angst for dancing and singing along to.
