Talentime 69!



The Radio Television Singapore Talentime 69 finalists were a mix of star-struck talents, offering a variety in musical styles. Among the finalists were a 6 year old piano prodigy, and a contestant offering Mistrel-type entertainment. Of course, there were the singers too, like these two featured here. From a commerative record showcasing each of the Talentime 69 finalists:

Marie Tang: A 14 year old student at St Joseph's Convent whose ambition is to be a school teacher. She has taken part in several competitions and qualified for the Finals of RTS Talentime last year. According to Marie, she owes a lot to a friend - Uncle James, who has been coaching her for this year's talentime

Marie Tang - When Chinaboy Meets Chinagirl

Ainah Ahmad: Took part in Radio Talentime series 1963 and 1964. She is 21 years old and is happily married.

Coincidence that you just posted Marie Tang...I just posted her version of FIREBALL XL-5 on my Myspace site.

While listening to your song, I began to imagine Jonathan Richman performing an acoustic version. It's just his style...

Hi, this is Marie.... Thank you for posting this on the web. I had actually lost the record and am glad that I can hear myself again. Do you happen to have my recording of Fireball XL-5? Thanks

Hi Marie! Thanks for your comment. Yes, I do have your recording of Fireball XL-5. I can email it to you if you like. Let me know.

Marie said...

Oh oh.... thanks so much for that, I'd really love to have it. My email address: marie_ang87@hotmail.com. You must be a collector of old records made in Singapore. It's just unfortunate that my parents had lost it during their move some years back. My children just get so amused when they hear it ! Thanks again.
