Around '73-74, when I was 11-12 yrs. old, I got my first transistor radio (like an Ipod, only a lot bigger for those born after 1980), and had it permanently glued to my ear. I got it by money my Memere gave to me. What a joy listening to the Top 40 on WPRO FM in the early 1970's. It was a great transition period of the British Invasion and the sexual revolution. Wonderful, prolific songwriters, riding on the tailcoats of Bob Dylan, and Lennon and McCartney. I was entranced for the first time in my life. There were actually people out there with the same thoughts, dreams, and desires. It was at this time that I collided with my 1st "soulmate", and my drab, grey would began to color.
The colors of pink and purple sequins adorning platform shoes, with yellow boas, and gleaming, gold lame!
