Just remember, there is a difference between

getting old, and being old.

We all get old, but I refuse to be old.

commericals!

Too recent and too narrow for me.

Yeah, I like those commercials. When we gotten new vehicles over the last few years they came with Serius and we found The Bridge station that plays the soft rock that we really like from our earlier years.

Interestingly, we went to Asheville this weekend and decided to stop at Harrah's casino in Cherokee to waste $25 on the slots. Got there at 11am on Thursday and the place was far from filled but it was largely older people spending their SS/pensions/savings. They were playing music that was very much like The Bridge and played at a volume that wasn't overbearing. I enjoyed the music for a couple of hours while my dear wife spent a small part of our kid's inheritance.

You should check out the Classic Vinyl channel, then (C26). It is very similar to The Bridge, to the point that they sometimes play the same song at the same time.



It is what it is.

Thanks. I'll check it out.

That's not old. Being old is when those infomercials have music that you consider to be "new music" that only kids listen to.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Nah, in the 70s “Top 40” was definitely not cool. LPs were what was happening. smoking smiley

I totally agree with this. Top 40 corporate radio was for the most part horrible. There was much better material available via a small number of FM stations and mostly small record producers.

There is a new local station I have been listening to a lot that calls itself "easy favorites" or something.

It plays lots of stuff I haven't heard in a long time. Of course since my mind is like a steel trap RollingEyesSmiley5, I can't remember most of what they play, but Chicago, Whitney Houston, Toto, Toni Braxton and Maroon 5 comes to mind. Unfortunately, I guess you have to take the bad with the good and I've also heard some Michael Bolton. spinning smiley sticking its tongue out
