Turning 39

Dydd Gwyl Dewi hapus! Or happy Saint David's day to those who don't understand Welsh.

Well I reached another birthday, yes folks I'm now 39...... feels no different to 38 mind you so all you Young one's not yet there don't worry you don't turn green or bald over night.

Listening to Chris Evans on Radio 2 the other evening he was talking about the 80's more specifically TV show 'fame' and listening to 'Star Maker' well if you want to well up and cry buckets then this is the song for you. Although I did not actually cry it did bring back many memories and has triggered something in my dark grey matter, so at the moment I am back in the 70's and 80's and will be sharing some TV shows, music and other things from that era over the coming weeks that I loved and grew up with.

Okay back to 'fame' ran from 1982-1987 the show was based on the movie with the same name. that tells the stories of the students and faculty at the "New York City High School for the Performing Arts." I was not a huge fan by any means and probably didn't watch many episodes but growing up as a teenager this was the big hit of the 80's and all the girls wearing leg warmers yes that's where it came from. And this being the culprit for my 80's re visit.

More later....
