Katherine loves listening to the radio ...




Taffy, whose real name is Katherine Quaye, is an American singer whose particularity is to have distinguished herself in the prolific sector known as "Italo Dance".


His name will remain in the musical history of the 80s mainly for a title but what a title ! The huge "I love my radio", which set fire to all the dancefloor on the planet between 1985 and 1986.


And just for this title, we had to dedicate a particular article to her.


Knowing also that she has other achievements to her credit that it would have been a shame to ignore.


To discover or rediscover.

Clips :


1978 ... the surreal beginnings. Millions of light years from what she will produce in the 80s ...



1982 ... we find her 4 years later. It has nothing to do. And the general trend is given for the 80s : it will be Dance !



1984 ... we are getting closer to the best, slowly but surely. Here she signs her first notorious hit and offers herself a direct place in the big leagues !



1985 ... and the best, there it is. A HUGE title that brings her One Shot into the musical legend of the 80s. Undoubtedly one of the biggest Dance hits of the 80s. MAS-TER-FUL !



1986 ... a quality suite, that's clear. But who can not compete with the previous gem as the bar is high



1987 ... Dance, Dance, Dance. Effective but it lacks the stroke of genius to make the difference. This does not prevent her from signing a last major hit. Always better than nothing !



1987 ... we are far, very far from the Taffy of "I love my radio". Not easy to renew. Even if the title is not without interest, the great adventure is over ...



1988 ... in boiling hot mode to finish. Unfortunately, that will not be enough to set fire to either the Charts or the Dancefloor. Definitive end of the adventure ...
