The B52s (New Wave)+

It been cool listening to "The B52s" since 1979 until 2010. My first recordwas the yellow color album of "The B52s", and then second the yellow colored eight track of "The B52s". The eight track was stolen from me back in 1997, and is probably now a collectors piece by now. All these songs are hip, and wild to listen to!

First Led Zeppelin then The B52s are my favorite tunes to listen to still!

Age 45 now!
