30 day song challenge day 29: A song from your childhood
Sailor—Girls Girls Girls
We used to have this British Relay Wireless (BRW) television that had, if I remember correctly, four channels (BBC 1, BBC 2, STV and Border TV) but if you then pressed a button it would switch from TV to Radio and offered four channels there too (I can’t remember which ones, although BBC Radio 2 was probably one of them.
British Relay was a cable TV company, so the TV was plugged into the wall using a very particular socket with loads of pins. I remember being both excited and disappointed when we had to move to a conventional TV aerial because the signal wasn’t as good as cable and we dropped one of the ITV channels (STV, which meant no more Glen Michael’s Cartoon Cavalcade on a Sunday afternoon).
Sailor’s “Girls Girls Girls” is the first song I remember playing on the radio. It came out in early 1976, before Jane was even born!
Is it just me or does the song in places sound like The Muppet Show theme tune?
