They never let me anywhere near the studios but I'm sure I'd have the best "one hour - all request hour" if they did!
I've got a phone that sometimes works and an email account that I can't remember. Best way to reach me - just COMMENT below. Thanks!
Hi! I'm Mike The Web Guy. My boss told me that I should start one of these blogs, even though I'm not "on the radio." After being told that it was a "good idea," I figured, "why not?" I could always use another thing to do. Things about me... I'm a HUGE San Diego Chargers Fan (Any SoCal Locals who want to get together for a game - COMMENT back at me and let's HOOK IT UP). I live in Clifton Park. I'm all about APPLE (sorry PC people). I have a woman who lives upstairs in my house who is related to me by marriage. We have two kids who pretty much run our social life.
Now that Twinkies are coming back this summer, there are four other brands from our childhood that could also make a comeback.
Remember when this was the place to go to for dinner? After filing for bankruptcy protection in 1996, Sizzler is making a bit of a comeback under new management. There are currently 170 Sizzlers around the country now.
"Shake it like a Polaroid picture!" Probably the most iconic memory for anyone who grew up after 1963 and before the first George Bush took office will never forget the instant camera that defined a generation of pictures. When digital cameras started rolling out, the death sentence was issued for Polaroid. Now artists use the cameras for inspiration and apps like Instagram keep the nostalgia of the style alive. In 2008, 10 former Polaroid employees saved the last Polaroid production plant in the Netherlands and started to invent and produce new instant film materials for the iconic cameras. In the process, the company saved 300 million Polaroid cameras from becoming extinct.
Some would argue that Lego's were the most popular toy in the 1980s. Mothers everywhere would agree that they sucked up more of the little pieces with their vacuums than what they're kids played with. After taking a nose dive in the late 90s, Lego's made a comeback tying in with movies and pop culture from the early 2000s. Now the toys are enjoying a healthy comeback and the same kids who left them all over the floor are now parents, sucking the pieces up with their vacuums!
We used to have one here in the 518. It was an interesting idea to have a franchise themed around a real Irish pub. In 2008, Bennigan's filed for Chapter 7 and they closed all 150 locations, including ours in Latham. Today, Bennigan's is starting to comeback with 85 restaurants around the world.
