'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.
