This afternoon, I could afford to spend a few minutes of lunch time listening to Graceland, one of my most favourite pieces of music.

It reminded me of the late '80s when I used to relish such authentic African music by listening (as well  as singing sometimes in my English and Physics classrooms for pedagogic reasons).

I particularly remember one pleasant evening in Kochi in August 1986 when I had the pleasure of listening to it for the first time, thanks to my short wave receiver, and Paul.
