Lil bro, I plan to spend this eve listening to all these songs in the lonesome company of 🍷

Hope they bring back memories for you.

Its great to hear the crackling sounds that emits from those records rather than the clean crisp sound that is remastered on CD's now.

Many of us growing up in Guyana in the late 60's and during the 70's will know  that our families were not fortunate  to own a record player (radiogram) as we use to call it then.

One of our  sources of music was from either one of 2 radio stations that we had, Radio Demerara or GBS and we all had our favorite time slots that we will listen.

Our second source was the local rum shop that played these songs on the Jukebox.

Our exposure to music was limited compare to the variety that is available now.

The lyrics back then was pleasing to listen to when compared to today's vulgarity and some that we cannot even make sense of.

Bro some of those music I never heard and few did bring back a lot of memories. I got to where my previous post is, will continue tomorrow eve.

Mr Bhim and his band used to play at some of our cricket dances…last time I saw him was 7 yrs ago. His son is also good on the guitar.

Radio Dem was what we listened to but even that was limited by my parents.

I never went to a rum shop in Guyana…oops I believe I did go into Poach’s at MMZ due to a classmate being a relative but the place I used to go to listen to jukebox was at a famous cake shop over the road from my high school.
lyrics are crazy when I listen to what my ‘rebel’ has playing…so sad, so much crap
