We all have those childhood memories that have given us the most joy, that we still remember to this day.
It could be the smell of your mother’s cooking, the games we played or even your favourite toy.
All these have a special place in our hearts, and the mere mention of them brings back a time we all so fondly cherished.

Some of the TV shows that came to mind from Kaya 959 listener were Micheal Knight’s Night Rider, Macgyver, as well as Xena – The Warrior Princess.
Who can forget the excitement of seeing a kite freely roam the sky.
