Celebrating the season with Summer Tens

Throughout January we are celebrating the top ten songs based around a theme.

Today we are playing the songs from 1987.

The year we had the first mobile phone call in Australia.

Bob Hawke was Prime Minister and Kylie Minogue had her first hit with "I should be so lucky"

Sadly we also had the last episode of Countdown on the tele.

It was a big year in politics with Prime Minister Bob Hawke calling a double dissolution election and winning his third term in office. It was also the year he made the bold statement about Children living in Poverty, which you can listen too below.
