Play On…Oh yes, it’s the time of year for love songs, romantic tunes and playing our favourite songs of years gone by. Valentines Day, whether you’re celebrating or not, is always a prompt for us to remember those slow tunes from those early discos and awkward first dates. Is it because the radio is playing them incessantly? Whatever, we can’t resist the temptation to get the old vinyl out and look up those old classics on our phones. We’re then tempted to dig out the old photos we’ve uploaded and then we’re really off on a nostalgic trip down memory lane! How do we do it? With these lovelies…
