Remembering Dan Fogelberg Who Passed Today at Age 56 NEW YORK - Dan Fogelberg, the singer and songwriter whose hits "Leader of the Band" and "Same Old Lang Syne" helped define the soft-rock era, died Sunday at his home in Maine after battling prostate cancer. He was 56. His death was announced in a statement released by his family through the firm, Scoop Marketing, and it was also posted on the singer's website. "Dan left us this morning at 6:00 a.m. He fought a brave battle with cancer and died peacefully at home in Maine with his wife Jean at his side," it read. "His strength, dignity and grace in the face of the daunting challenges of this disease were an inspiration to all who knew him.

Id Like to Buy the World a Coke In the 1970s, market research showed that consumers preferred the taste of Pepsi over Coke. The Pepsi Challenge is still being conducted today. But Coke came up with what is arguably the best of all cola commercials, the 1971 I'd Like to Buy the World a Coke ad. This landmark was recalled in Christmas versions in 1983 and 1984, and a 1990 Super Bowl ad, which was enough to make some Baby Boomers weep with nostalgia

Whatever Happened to Remember the Sprint Guy? Until September of 2005, he was the spokescharacter for Sprint wireless phones, the guy who solved pesky cellular problems wherever and whenever they arose. He was ubiquitous, appearing in 155 commercials over a period of six years. More than that, he was an icon of the Internet age, the Mr. Whipple, the Joe Isuzu, the Madge or Mikey of his time. One day The Sprint Guy was gone, dropped like a bad connection. He went away quietly, without making a scene, which is just how you'd expect him to go. He was, it seems, a victim of corporate politics. Sprint bought Nextel for $35 billion, and as a result, things changed. Sprint Guy was great when Sprint was selling its services primarily to household customers. But Nextel began focusing on the business market, and so the company decided they needed a new image. Spring Guy was put on 'hiatus' for an indefinite period.

Featured Member   Roseann Hi Gang, My name is Roseann and I have been part of the YRT family for a little over a month. I grew up in the 50's in an Italian family. I have one brother and two sisters. I live in Syracuse, New York and have lived here all my life. Typical 50's story, got married right out of high school, had 5 children by the time i was 26 years old. Of course I did not live happily ever after like the fairy tales, but it was all good anyway. I was a stay at home mom and we pretty much lived a happy days existence. My husband owned a Big M supermarket so I had the luxury of staying home being a housewife and loved every minute of it. Divorced after 20 years of marriage. I am presently living alone with my 2 shih tzus. I have been blessed with a wonderful family. and thank you all for allowing me to be part of the YRT family. Love to all of you.

The Corvair in Action  1960 Chevrolet Promo Film Ralph Nader will be running for President again this election. His only claim to fame was taking this car off the market back in the 60s. I only bring this to your attention because one if not two generations have no idea who Ralph Nader is. Google his book that took this car off the road Unsafe at Any Speed and you will find so many saying Nader was wrong.

Denver Broncos Vertical Striped Socks The most hideous sports uniforms of all time may have been donned by the American Football League's Denver Broncos in 1960 and 1961. The ugly mustard-colored jerseys were awful, but the true eyesores were the stirrup socks with vertical stripes. They were the idea of Dean Griffing, the Broncos' general manager, who insisted the unique socks made the players look taller. Perhaps, but they also unquestionably looked silly. The media derided them as 'clown socks.' So reviled was the hosiery that when the Broncos' uniforms got a complete makeover in 1962, more than 8,300 people attended a ceremony in which the socks were tossed into a large bonfire. A few pairs escaped the flames, though. One set is on display at the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Some players retained their socks as keepsakes. An authentic pair is apparently worth $500 on the sports collectibles market.

Gigglesnort Hotel Here is a fun segment with B.J. and Blob from one of the best and most remembered Chicago children's shows (although it was eventually syndicated to other markets) - Gigglesnort Hotel. Even though it was seen for many years after it was produced, the show was only in production for 3 years - 1975, 1976, and 1977. In Chicago, it aired on Sunday mornings on WLS Channel 7.
