No, I don't remember too many of those. Most possibly because I wasn't even born then. On the other hand rememberance of last week isn't all too clear either.

We only had two and a half channels... one barely came in... and I was born at the tail end of the 1980's. I still play my 8 tracks...

Here's another one:
Do you remember when... we all pretty much listened to the same music? Times were that we would like or dislike singers or bands instead of musical genres. And if the other guy didn't like the same band you did, you still could be friends with him.
(I tried and it's impossible these days!)

P.S.:
Just being back from the Slay forums:
Do you remember when... replies to things you wrote could take two weeks to arrive, even if handled without delays?
