Christine Koh


I'm Christine Koh, a music and brain neuroscientist turned multimedia creative. I'm the founder + editor of Boston Mamas, co-author of Minimalist Parenting, co-host of the Edit Your Life podcast, and creative director at Women Online. Drop me a line; I'd love to chat about how we can work together!



These days I have very little time for TV, but two nights ago I was exhausted, and all I wanted to do was curl up on the couch with candy (of both the visual and Halloween kind).

Jon and I ended up catching the last block of VH1’s 100 Greatest Songs of the 80’s, and let me tell you, it was masterful. The listener-derived countdown includes video clips, interviews with artists, and classic “where are they now?” footage, all of which will leave you marveling over mullets, air guitaring your way to your shoebox of old mix tapes, and/or paralyzed in a state of psychological remission.

This 80’s spectacular is a five-part series (20 songs per hour); on Sunday (4pm) VH1 is airing the countdown starting from #60, but I would suggesting recording the entire countdown, currently scheduled from 5 - 10pm on Tuesday, Nov. 7, to stash alongside your mixed tape archive.
