I keep on posting pages of the scrap-books of Silvia Paula Jentsch, a Brazilian girl of German extraction who was born in São Paulo in 1942. She was a fan of Brazilian-style-Top 40 radio stations. She listened to the radio, memorized the lyrics of the most air-played songs then bought lyrics-magazines, clipped the words out and pasted them on note-books, adding a few photos of her favourite stars to boot. These here are 2 of her scrap-books which in themselves is like a snap-shot of that moment in time. Silvia finished her 1st scrap-book in August 1962.
