Wasn't that Scoresby Scotch?


No. It was a cylindrical metal cooler decorated with a black and red plaid pattern.

We bought a new car a few months ago. I came with 6 months trial of Sirius radio. We found channel 5 "50's on 5". Talk about a "way back machine "  We are loving it. Deon and the Belmonts, Buddy Holly, Doris Day, Pat Boone, the Big Bopper, Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis, and on and on.

I have had a zero gravity recliner for about 3 years now, and the side cords are about ready to be replaced as I use it so much. It's the only outside chair I found that has decent support for my back and is comfortable in any position. It is wider than most chairs though. I had to create some additional space at the top of a storage bay with a wire shelf to store it so it wouldn't take up a whole side of a slide out storage tray. 

It's way worth it though. I bought the longer, heavy duty model that is rated to 300#. Hopefully I will never get to test out that limit.

A&W Root Beer.  The canned and bottled stuff just isn't the same as the old fashioned mixed stuff you used to get at the drive-in. 
When you find A&W at the fountain at a convenience store today, I don't think they have the syrup/water ratio adjusted right, either.
If you ever get to Modesto, CA, be sure to try the A&W there. Itís over 100 years old...still the same mediocre food...with great root beer.

Remember going to the submarine races and killing the car battery listening to  the radio. The radios had vacuum tubes with heaters built-in.  No transistors back then.

Franklyn MacCormack and his All Night Showcase on WGN radio ( 720 AM Chicago), who did a marvelous job reading poetry on the air late at night, and who played some nice music, too. I especially listened when I was stationed in Topeka, KS and was working an evening shift, but listened any time I could get it.

And thinking of radio, I really enjoyed the days when radio had shows like The Shadow, Jack Benny, Big John and Sparky (Saturday morning), and Tom Corbett, Space Cadet (right after school).  They were wonderful to lay in front of the radio, close your eyes, and watch the show. And Dad listened to The Bell Telephone Hour, with Donald Vorhees, and Don McNeill's Breakfast Club in the mornings. Mom listened to Stella Dallas, a soap opera.

There is a subscription service (live-365 or at least that is what is was when I subscribed) that has an "old Time Radio Channel" run by a ham from Down Under as I recall.

THey run many of those old time radio shows including the Shadow and CBS Mystery theater and more... But the cost to subscribe got too high for me so I dropped it. Do not recall if that channel was on the "Free" version of teh site or not. but the stations I wanted (other stations) were not.

That was the whole point. Since you could not see them that left you and your girlfriend plenty of time to *ahem* get better acquainted. I used to go to the lemon orchards outside of Oxnard to watch the submarine races when I was in high school. ;D ;D ;D

Or, like me, he might have been reared somewhere away from the big waters. Here in this topic is the first time I've come across that phrase (sub races), but I've only been near water like that a handful of times in my life -- I'm a mountain and desert guy.

Sometime the submarine races were at the airport perimeter road. No water near there. That's just what we called going someplace to smooch.

What I miss from the old days is stuff that can be fixed. Everything is disposable now. When it breaks, throw it out and buy a new one. Some things you can fix, but it's cheaper to buy new, especially if your paying someone else to do the repairs.
