When I first came out to MN for college I didn't listen to the radio a lot, but when I did it was the "oldies" station, Kool 108, which mostly played stuff from the '50s and '60s. Everly Brothers, Herman's Hermits, Richie Valens, Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding etc. Fast forward a decade or so later and I'm always in the car driving my kids places and occasionally turn to Kool 108 and there's some of the same stuff but also slightly newer things too, focusing mostly on songs from the '60s and '70s from groups like the Rolling Stones and Elton John and the Grateful Dead but including a handful from the bands I used to hear more often on the station.

I turned it on today and hear them playing Prince and Toto and Men at Work and Men Without Hats.

These are apparently considered oldies and classics now?

"Africa" and "Safety Dance" and "Purple Rain" are all good songs. But.....
