Welcome to our 4x Life

Every week, we’re listening to the pop charts from a month gone by. Starting in January 1950 and going (at 4x speed) up until the date we started, September 2020.

So in 3 months we listen to a year worth of charts. Or a decade worth in 2.5 years. It will take 16 years in total, rather than the 70 that have passed since 1950.

Why? Because I wasn’t around for 27 of those years, and my daughter Sadie wasn’t around for any of them. So we’ll experience the hits of the past together, and explore the history that surrounded them at the same time.

Thomas S and Sadie.
