5: What was the first single/album you bought? 

I can't remember if I bought it with my own money, but my first single was Jason Donovan Another Night it was on a 7 inch record and I played it over and over again. The first CD was NOW 39 and I did buy this.

I got a CD player that Christmas. I thought it was amazing how you could skip a song you didn't like and it would start at the next one ... you couldn't do that with cassettes.

Before then I used to record songs off the radio and hated it when the presenters spoke over!!!

Jason Donovan. The cover was better than the single.

6: What was the first concert you went too? 

Boyzone, and I cried when I found out my Mum bought me tickets after all my friends said they were going. I met them last year.....I didn't tell them this, they would have thought I was mad.
