I remember I was introduced to listening to the radio when I was 16 (that was a decade ago). Yea, my antenna was THAT short back when I was still an innocent secondary-school girl *grins* A group of us girls were sitting in class one day and were chatting about music. Boy bands. Girl bands. The Top 10 charts. And because I was such a “late-boomer”, one of my best friends, Joey, recommended that I tuned in tobecause according to her, Mix FM plays “contemporary but not hard rock music”.
I believed her, and so that was how I was hooked to the radio for the next 5 years or so. I took an interest on the Weekly Top 10 charts, who sang what, who released what albums and what-nots. The “obsession” kind of spread to my sister because she even bought some Backstreet Boys and Spice Girls albums!
Some of my favourite artists in the late 1990s include:
My, this is nostalgic! It feels like it was just a while ago that their songs topped the charts and I got to listen to them on the radio over and over again! Thank God for portable music players *smiles*
