Honouring The STARS...part 4
To honour the C3A's 7 Active Ageing Ambassador Winners of 2008, the organisers have spared no effort and left no stone unturned so to speak.
Nostalgia and Golden memories were the order for the night. And to bring the best of nostalgia for this occasion ...you'll have to get the very Best in the business of music and entertainment.
For emcee, it was Mr Gold 90.5 himself....Brian Richmond ! I have listened to that rich, golden and mellowed voice of Brian for as long as I can remember since he appeared more than 3 decades ago..on the
airwaves. Believe me when I say this top talent is in a class of his own. He knows his stuff and is extremely easy-going and relaxed. And moreover he has a huge storehouse of songs, singers, tunes, hits and all the quirky tid-bits, all at the tip of his fingers. Amazing!
Here we were, the two of us, comparing our ages...year of birth right down to the month and day.
And we discovered we were both born about 3 weeks apart in the same year! Fancy that! So, if you have never seen two handsome 61 year old man in a picture together...here's one for you!
In case any of you start wondering, Brian is my senior by 3 weeks lah! I called him my " elder brother" and we had such a great laugh over it.
D2 was saying here...I have always enjoyed the sentimental songs of yesteryears that you host on 90.5 Gold, nightly.
