What started as a Facebook post asking “what was the first record you bought” has now turned into a podcast….and a whole lot of fun!
After over 200 comments suggesting over 5 hours worth of music…this is the final result. With tunes spanning from the 1960’s-2000, this is over 30 years worth of “first records”.
The podcast is structured to start in the 1960’s and move to the late 1990’s.
Deciding what to choose out of all the suggestions was not an easy task, so I had to pick and choose. To whittle down the song choices, popularity did influence me. Not only how frequent someone suggested the same song but also how big of a hit it was. Madonna, Adam & The Ants, ABBA, Culture Club, Snap and others came up several times for different tunes, so I picked one track each from the suggestions to represent the multiple choices for each group. As expected disco and house were also popular choices and you will find sections dedicated to these genres.
Play this on New Year Eve, or recovering on New Year’s day and go on a time travel journey.
