Remembering Radio Gaga

We went to see It's a kinda Magic! and I remembered the song Radio Gaga . I bought it on audio tape. Remember audio tape ? I remember using these tapes to save and restore programs using a ZX81 when I was fifteen. This would be a good exercise in teaching any problem manager about patience. The procedure was fraught with potential issues and a person had to be real thick skinned to use it! I wonder if I should add, learnt to program on a ZX81 to my CV? BTW: Craig Pesco as Freddie Mercury was absolutely brilliant! It has been a long time since I have been to a show and could sing along to all the songs, not only because I enjoyed it but because I knew the words! Queen was the greastest band for me, from 1980 to 1984 when I was at Grey College. They played Sun City in '84 and were the first through the Iron curtain . God bless Freddie Mercury , wherever you are.
