  1. Fabulous! Thanks. I actually read this one like the good old days! :-)

    This is, technically, "before my time" a touch (I would have been 8!) but this was the beginning of lots of the artists I liked a few years later.

    Bananarama's first single is in this issue.

    30 YEARS THIS MONTH!

    Tell a friend ... (-:

    Thanks so much for carrying on with this project. You're appreciated!
