This afternoon on ‘Tickets @2′ listen for “Borderline” by Madonna. It came out in 1983.

Madonna’s vocals were pitched up to make her sound younger. She was 26 at the time.

The song was re-released in the UK in 1986 after Madonna became an international star. It went to #2 on the charts. It was her first Top 10 hit. There wasn’t much separating her from other Dance divas at the time, but Madonna managed to reinvent herself time and again, and had 36 more US Top 10 hits by the middle of 2008.

One of the cone bras she wore during her 1990 “Blonde Ambition” tour has sold for approximately 52-thousand dollars. By the way Madonna is now 54-years old,

When we play it between two and three we’ll take caller #10 to win a pair of tickets to see Amy Grant’s Christmas at the Segerstrom Concert Hall by calling 1-800-232-KRTH (5784).
