Good Monday, Persephoneers! So glad to have you here, and to have a “here” for you to be. An interesting phenomena is happening in the Sally J minivan: my near seven-year-old has started to demand that I “turn it up!” Wow.
She goes nuts for LMFAO, Miley Cyrus, the Bieber, Adele, and KT Tunstall. She gets excited when the Beatles are on, and knows a few songs by heart. Which got me thinking to about what I was listening to in the first grade, and I don’t actually remember. I do remember getting a Walkman in the the seventh grade, along with several tapes. And before I entered into my “dark” phase where all I listened to was The Cure, I was a fan of some pretty bubble-gum pop myself. Tiffany and Debbie Gibson? You betcha.
How old were you when you started paying attention to the radio? What were your first tapes/CDs? How was your long weekend without us? Go ahead, talk it up!
