    Re: Getting Older and Music

    My parents watched it faithfully. My dad would have been over the moon to get a Christmas Card. He had a book that one of the female singers wrote and I know he read it about 10 times.
    They used to try to get me to watch it by telling me that Bobby from the Mickey Mouse Club was on it (it was not the same. Bobby was grown up and not wearing mouse ears).

    But I can and do listen to Glenn Miller, Frank Sinatra, Benny Goodman, etc. now which they couldn't have PAID me to listen to when I was a teenager.

    Oh, I had an 8 track player in my first car.

    My mother, god bless her, had a Flatt and Scruggs 8 track that I loved. I probably never would have heard then otherwise as my dad was into Perry Como, Tony Bennett and Frank Sinatra.

    So did I for about my first month of owning the car, then it broke and I was forced to drive around with one of these on the front seat.

    I can remember listening to I'm Your Captain/Closer to Home by Grand Funk & the tape would change right in the middle of the song. 8 Track was the goofiest medium ever.

    I didn't have any 8-tracks but my brother did. It always tripped me out when the tapes would change tracks right in the middle of a song. Dumb idea.

    I had an 8-track that actually got stolen out of my car. The only tape I remember having was John Travolta....

    You shouldn't share that sort of thing. I hope, at least when they stole the machine they also stole the tape.

    I actually laughed out loud at that one, razorbacker.
    And no - he left me the tape.
