Meat

21 Ιανουαρίου, 2022

Towards the end of the seventies, I was finishing high school.

I used to go to my school by bicycle. In fact, a few other kids from the neighbourhood would do the same, so every morning we had an unofficial meeting time and place before starting towards Kykkos High School.

Ah, I forgot to mention: among the kids, there were a couple of girls as well.

I was naturally punctual on these morning meetings. Then somebody, I think it was Nikos,  told me about this foreign radio station. Not really foreign, a station in Cyprus but in English. It was the station for the British forces in Cyprus. It was BFBS, and it would play interesting music all day.  It was my choice station every morning on the radio receiver of my proud JVC music system.

The only days that I would be late for the meeting with the other kids would be those days that a good song was on air. And I remember that more than once, the song that kept me late in my bedroom was a rock song by a new artist with a funny name.

It was a long song too, and it really caused problems, both with the friends waiting for me near the Pithkias bridge, but also my mother who was not used to listening to rock music first thing in the morning.

Very long. Almost ten minutes.

It was Bat Out of Hell, by Meat Loaf.

Rest in peace man.
