The Box! You see it everywhere. They were in coffee shops, offices, apartments, houses, wet markets, barber shops and hawker stalls.
And when the latest songs were requested, Rediffusion played them. The local bands and singers were featured too. From The Silver Strings to Shirley Nair, from The Mysterians to Mike and Herb. Mike Ellery, Tan Swee Leong, Larry Lai, Eric Lim and Tan Hock Lye became household names.
