This is where I am definitely going to show my age. this week I am going to share some of the songs I remember playing at home during my childhood. I am a child of the seventies and the musical taste within my family is extremely varied, with a large age gap between myself and my siblings (12 and 10 years respectively) I was introduced to a wide variety of music from a young age.
I don't know if anyone else can remember Jimmy Saville's Golden Oldie Radio Show that used to be on every Sunday around lunchtime when I was a little girl. I remember my mum having it on in the kitchen while she cooked the Sunday Dinner. the range of music played was vast and really stuck in my head as a Sunday tradition, I was really sorry when it stopped.
See what I mean by diverse.
My sister was a teenager in the seventies, when I was 2 she was 14 with a serious crush on Bay City Rollers and Donny Osmond. I remember her bedroom walls being covered in posters of them. She had tartan trousers, platform boots and the requisite tartan scarf. She even went to see Donny Osmond a few years ago in Cardiff, lol. Isn't it amazing what sticks in your mind.
My brother, 10 years older, was a rock fan (hmm sounds familiar) his tastes ran to T-Rex, Jimmy Hendrix and Mott the Hoople. Come to think of it he actually looked a bit like Marc Bolan when he was a teen, lol.
I could add more and more but I shall refrain. Goes to play with childhood songs on YouTube [ : D ]
