When the most popular Slovenian ceremony began in 1978, the celebration was held at the Latvian Radio House, which also had a direct connection with the "microphone". Namely, in the autumn of the year, I addressed one of the most popular Ausma Indrixone radio speakers, for which we have been conducting programs for the "microphone" for more than 10 years, as well as the final events of the annual survey. All good wishes Cinderella, as we called it, came from the edges of the edges, as well as baked bread pastries, candy, gloves, socks and various other goodies.
The final concerts were traditionally held between Christmas and New Year, this time on December 30th. The day was unusually frozen, the glowing column in the thermometer fell to minus 31.2 degrees. The atmosphere in the Philharmonic, which was filled up to the last occasion, was another. The world crossed the disco, although "Bonei M" performed in Moscow, and not in Riga, "Rivers of Babylon" sounded a lot in homes, villages and city streets.
The fact that the victory of Raimond Pauls will again be the winner is expected when the research begins, and it has become equally clear that the honor of the laureate to this day will come with a lively modern melody with the words "For the City" by Mirzad Zivere, Aije Kukule and Performance Group "Modo ".
A few votes were Maestro's album "Eliia" in the performance of Victor Lapchenko, but in the third place, the violinist of former professor of radio station Jurasso Karlsons during "No Time" with singer Ilze Binde Mirdz Zivera fell to third place.
The fact that the popularity of the annual poll of the songs "Microphone" continued to grow in geometric proportions was also shown by the fact that this time in the first ten without Raimonds Pauls there were five other songs, that is, Juris Karlsons, as well as Zigmars Liepins, Harijs Uans, Zigismunds Lorentss and Gunars Freidenfeld As long as the poll was not a popular melody in the unique performance of Edgars Liepin's "The Three Speakers", it was censured that the old days were over-complimented.
The "Microphone" Concert in the Philharmonic Hall in 1978 was the third and most recent, because many people had to stay behind the door due to lack of space.
As a result, the organizers began to consider other possible surveys for concerts, such as the Daile Theater or Riga Sports Palace, where more than 5,000 listeners could fit in.
