GenXGrownUp Podcast

by Evergreen Podcasts

Generation X. If you grew up in the 1970s, 1980s, and early 1990s, you know just how cool it was to be a kid back then. We had the greatest music, movies, games, technology, and pop culture of any generation, and though we've grown older, we have refused to outgrow our love of everything GenX. GenXGrownUp looks at yesterday and today through the eyes of Generation X'ers who have refused to grow up!

REWIND: Radio Shack

47m · Published 15 Feb 10:00
“Breaker, breaker 1-9, I just eyeballed a bear trap with a bunch of Evel Knievels about 10 miles past the coop. So if you don’t want a bear bite back it down.” Huh? That was just some CB talk in honor of this week’s Backtrack Topic all about Radio Shack! Any GenX’er who was into anything electronic will have a story about visiting a Radio Shack. They were the place to go when you needed a hard to find part or when you wanted to speak with some knowledgeable people about CB radios, computers or anything that used electricity. Unfortunately, they couldn’t keep up with the times and made some bad turns that led to a few bankruptcies and its eventual downfall.
