Glad you're here. Sorry about the cancer! How are you doing now? We're all suffering from the memory thing! I've always had it, (big distraction). We should talk about menopause more. This is a wonderful group to hang with! The talks we have trigger memories for me all the time. What a great era to grow up in!

Hi all! I've been on SP for a month and a half...took me this long to find you! Anyway, I love what I see on your thread...brings back lots of memories, many I have forgotten! My memory is not as good as it used to be since I'm getting older, had cancer and lost some memory during treatments, and going through menopause!! Getting old sucks! But, if I hang in here with you gals, maybe some of the memories will come creeping back!! BTW, I think your idea of getting together in TN is awesome! I know that's on another part of your forum... emoticon

I am a person of infinite possibilities and dreams.

Forgive your enemies. It messes up their heads.

Hey there! Hope you don't mind a new member! I've been popping in to all the "40's" groups and this one definitely looked like the most fun, although I don't know if I'll be able to keep up to everyone. I checked out some of the other threads... you guys are goooood!

I agree, Leannie.

I'm moving to the Holly area and hoping I can still get CKLW in there! And a few of the other Canadian stations I like listening to. I've never lived away from the CK area. Does anyone know if I'll be able to? There is a middle of the night radio show I like to listen to when I have a hard time sleeping, and I hate to lose that.

I listen to AM radio sometimes, but it's all talk radio. Does any one remember when cable tv first came out? We had something called Qube, and it had a cord that connected it to the tv!

Maggie MG,

I wish they still had the old CK! Remember the old 580am station with their 'elevator music'? Well, they now have the OLD 'CK music', and have 'oldies'. CK has gone pretty much talk radio.

Lori,
Hi, my dog's names are Sandy and CoCo; I thought you were a cat lover. My cat's name is Perty.
This IS a wonderful place. I am thankful every day for the support and togetherness.
It's time for me to step away from the computer and get some work done. Thanks.
Have a wonderful day emoticon !

Hey Leannie,
Thank you for the warm welcome. Rod stewart, funny how our memories go along with the music. Remember when dateline asked a question and gave you an event, what was happening in history, and the number one song that year? It was easy to guess by the song. Do you remember CKLW?

I love Elton John too. He is still my favorite. he has been there throughout my whole childhood releasing one great hit after another. I think he is the best of the best. You can't say that about many musicians. Especially today. The music is so different. I think it would be much harder to play name that tune with todays music. Remember back in the day you could name that band in 2 or 3 notes.

I was just playing Elton tonight while I relaxed in the jet tub after a hard day at work.

Hey there Leannie thanks so much for the warm welcome on my sparkpage. Can't wait to run down memory lane with you- I am a married (ALmost 20 yrs) SAHM of 4 boys ranging in ages from 17 - 5. They all love the 70's music. One of my sons refers to it as old school- old school is very cool! you should see our ipod playlists- they pretty much cover all of the decades. We're pretty well rounded. Well all have a great Tuesday- TTYL

Hi, I'm Becky and new to this team.
Just thinking about the 70's is bringing back so many memories. I lived out the 70's in San Diego, CA. and Lenexa, KS. Very different places, but they both had the same influences.
I was a latch-key kid so my sister and I were either listening to an album, watching TV or roller skating on Fri. nites with my big Goody comb sticking out of my back pocket and feathered hair.
I can tell this is going to be a fun team.
