Sally’s Drive Time Playlist – Music to get the Weekend Started Peter Sarstedt and #Nashville

Sarstedt and #Nashville

Music has always been a vital element of my well-being and I often state that in my opinion music is another food group. I have a number of different playlists on my iPod for every mood and activity from walking on my treadmill, driving short and long distances and just when I need a shot of energy or some restorative downtime.

My parents were born in 1916 and 1917 so by the time I arrived as a late baby; they were in their late 30’s. They loved ballroom dancing and so the music of the 60’s and 70’s which was my era, was alien to them. My father being a naval man found the long hair of both males and females an offence under the uniform code and was frustrated at his inability to often tell the difference in the sexes from behind! We were under strict regulations when it came to our hair length and attire and I am afraid was just a little bit insubordinate! At 16, I nearly gave my father a heart attack by coming home with a platinum blonde, Marilyn Munroe hair do. (Grounded for a month)

However, I was allowed to bop around to Top of the Pops and Juke Box Jury, but I was restricted to a small area out of sight where I would lose myself, age 10 in the hits of the day.

I played guitar a little and wrote some songs full of angst as a teenager. I have sung quite a bit in private and also in public over the years – I love country and will sometimes be coaxed into a little jamming.

About Smorgasbord - Variety is the Spice of Life.

My name is Sally Cronin and I am doing what I love.. Writing. Books, short stories, Haiku and blog posts. My previous jobs are only relevant in as much as they have gifted me with a wonderful filing cabinet of memories and experiences which are very useful when putting pen to paper. I move between non-fiction health books and posts and fairy stories, romance and humour. I love variety which is why I called my blog Smorgasbord Invitation and you will find a wide range of subjects. You can find the whole story here. Find out more at

  1. Only a month Sally? LOL, My dad was also military and when I was young he cut my hair. Can you imagine? When I started paying for my haircuts, if I came home and it wasn’t military regulation cut, I was sent back to have it corrected. Oh, those memories.
