Question of the Day

Suggested by Shaker TA, in comments: "What was your first record (or album) and what was your first concert?"

(We've done these before, but not for a long time, and they're always fun!)

The first single I bought with my own money was a 45 of "Rockin' Robin" by The Jackson 5, which I purchased at a neighborhood garage sale. The first album I bought was Wham! Make It Big.

My first concert (if you discount seeing Gordon from Sesame Street perform at the local mall when I was three) was The Monkees, with opening act Weird Al Yankovic. I was probably 11.

If I remember correctly, I also attended a Tina Turner concert in utero.
