Do you think the world you live in today is the same world you lived in back in the swinging sixties. Hopefully not! What about the seventies, from prog rock to punk, from the three day week and power cuts to the early advent of yuppies. Or even the mega hairstyle days of the eighties, Live Aid, Band Aid and well er... AID's. The thing is, while we sleep walked into the nineties, where the earlier free radio fans were starting to scratch around for something still relevant, another bunch of people came along and ruined everything, people called young, now what about that.
Some were not white and some liked different music. Their sort of pirate radio was wrong. The authorities you so despised started to use new propaganda, they accused them of being drug pushers, knife carrying lunatics and how easy was it to jump on that bandwagon and go with the flow. Go OFCOM, stop these youngsters, I'm not racist, but just look at their baggy clothes, hats and hairstyles. When I was a lad, it turns out I was actually my Father, who hated everything. Etc etc etc........
So spare a thought for younger folk today. Those born into the world we have left them. Those indoctrinated from seven years old and upwards by the modern thinking of so many so called intellectuals. Did someone mention Caroline is now available on DAB in Scunthorpe. Hooray onwards and upwards, we are keeping your daydream alive!
