The First Video Game Console I Played Named Atari 2600 [Video]

WFGR Retrovision: Classic Ted Nugent Interview from 1978 [Video]

Even back then, Ted Nugent was a kook. Or at least outspoken. I have interviewed the "Motor City Madman" before. He claimed Mao created Communism, and the Obama was a fascist. Good old Uncle Teddly.

WFGR Retrovision: Creepy Taco Bell Santa Claus

Before Taco Bell was a big national chain player, it was a small regional Mexican fast-food joint.

WFGR Retrovision: Classic Black-And-White TV Stars In Living Color

Back in the days before everyone had a 73-inch high-definition flat-screen LED TV, people crowded around little 13-inch wooden boxes in neighborhood living rooms watching Sid Caesar, Jack Benny, Milton Berle and Lucille Ball in glorious black and white.
