  • Musicians who have gained experience with the BBS Local Talent and Variety Show and free public appearances (e.g. Playboy band at the Golden Jubilee Celebration of Rangoon University in 1970) turned professional.
  • English, Chinese and Indian songs were provided Burmese lyrics.
  • Sai Kham Leik was one of the few who created hit songs with original melody and lyrics. Sai Htee Saing was his primary choice for singing his songs.

Studios and Shops

Recording Studios sprang up.
They include

  • Sabai Oo
  • Lynn
  • May
  • Kumudra

Many shops sold mass-produced cassette tapes. Most played for 60 minutes. Tapes for 90 and 120 minutes often got stuck in the players.

Several shops allow a la carte. One can select songs and have them recorded in a tape.
