andrew027:

 

my mother would give my brother and I $10.00 each...

 

You're not old.

 

If you were old, $10 would have bought a week's groceries.

The music you grew up with and like is closer in age to the music your parents grew up with than the music on the radio today.

One thing about music these days (some of it very good I must say) that gets to me most is the post iPod set need to assign a "genre" to everything.

 

The domestic princeling's first band (if that's what it should be called) members very earnestly ensured me that their "genre" was post-punk shoegaze with influences from Jamaican bluegrass, but at their first public performance (as a parent - you have to be there) they start their set with a Johnny Cash cover.

 

Perhaps you know you're old when you realise that perhaps you aren't as dazed and confused as the younger generation.

...you could buy a pie and two doughnuts at the school tuck shop for a shilling.

 

 

 

 

..... you can no longer remember the difference between a shilling and schilling ......... and work it out in your head without a calculator.

You can remember when Dick Smith Electronics sold electronic components.

 

Oh and they had competition called "David Reid Electronics".

All I remember is how much time (and money) I used to spend in their stores in Hunters Corner (in Auckland), which were the closest stores to me for a number of years before Dick Smith won the war and then started opening more branches.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

You could buy ' Valves ' at the local electrical store.
(What the heck was an 'electronics' store?)
