    ok, i know this is a complete dorky thing, but i've been listening to old time radio from the 1930s - 1940s.

    i found an online station one day browsing itunes radio..imo,

    ok, fine....there are completely old radio shows, and yeah, they're a bit dorky sometimes....

    but imo, the most fascinating part is listening to the old commercials that played back then. i swear to g*, the BEST advertising/marketing came from these 1930's - 40s radio shows....and for commercials almost 70 years old, they're still f*ing amazing.

    not sure why the ads are better from back then even with today's radio commercials...they seem so forgettable, maybe it's cuz everybody back then sounds so innocent and trusting....and i think that that's something that's missing in today's ads

    :D

    it's also very interesting to listen to people who lived w/out tv, internet, ipods, cell phones or other tech gadget.....lol

    lol, if anything, it'll remind you of Fallout :D
