A few 'Gollden Oldies'

'Housewives' choice' on the English service of Radio Ceylon, was on at 2pm on week days. Afficiandos would gather round the largish walve-type radios at 'Bloem' Medical Hostel, and the student 'Common  Rooms' at the Medical Faculty  at Kynsey road, Colombo.. The medical students would live in their dream worlds, listening to these favorites in the early 1960s. Hope these songs tickle your memory.

My  dear  Carlyle
Chitra  has  written  to  me    that  you  had  wanted  some  matters   cleared    about  the   charges  for  this  event.
I am  attaching  a  copy  of  the  tentative  programme  to  this  mail.
Please   read it.   You  may  not  have  received  it  before.
At  the  time  of  Registration  ,   you  pay  Rs  3500.00  ,per  person  , to  cover  the  cost  of    Lunch  &    , morning  and  evening   tea.
For   those   NOT STAYING  IN THE  HOTEL.  the  cost  of  the   Gala Dinner  &  Dance  will be  Rs  5000.00  +  500.00.   The  latter is  for  music  Group.
For  those  WHO BOOK IN TO THE  HOTEL  for  the  7th   night  ,  The  Gala Dinner  will  cost  only  and  additional  Rs 2000.00 +  Rs  500.00  per person.
