Hi Sheila, hi all. Couldn't listen last week before Saturday. The pronouncation of Eefje's Platenmaatschappij wasn't too bad! Platen = records, maatschappij = company and we put "tje" to something when it's small. So it means Eefjes small record company.

It's interesting, though, that friends of mine from the East Coast cannot abide by doo-wop. They heard way too much of it. That's me with a lot of country and folk-rock music. Heard too much of it.

My reflections on my youth are necessarily distorted by time, but I don't think I ever even thought about "dressing like" as an activity in which one engaged, except c.1968, when I was determined to look like Peter Fonda in "Easy Rider."

Certainly never thought of dressing like Skyhooks, but sure was impressed by the way they dressed!

@ Cecile - Patti Smith is who did it for me when i was a teenager!
before her, i just could not "relate" to most female (or even male!) pop stars!
although, i can totally understand Ariana Grande' s appeal - the girl can sing (& i do believe that she is vegan too)

I related more to males, but most of all to Patti. It was that mix of masculine/feminine I guess.
