WFGR Retrovision–Swanson TV Dinners
As I was making my mac and cheese last night, I started thinking I could have had a frozen dinner. And before dinners were "frozen dinners" they were "TV Dinners" and were made by Swanson. People of a certain age will remember the tin foil trays holding turkey, ma…
WFGR Retrovision: Kaboom Cereal [VIDEO]
Remember this cereal?  How can you possibly have a bad day if you're eating a bowl of smileyfaces anyway?!   This cereal with the creepy clown was a favorite of mine as a kid and I think it was because the colors in the cereal were so crazy it would actually turn the milk an day-…

WFGR Retrovision–Love, American Style
The new show about to be remade from CBS? Love, American Style. Again. I hadn't realized this show has been remade 2 other times, including in the late 90's with Melissa Joan Hart. But CBS is will to try again.
WFGR Retrovision: Bosom Buddies [VIDEO]
TV like this just doesn't exist any more.   This show only last two years, but started a loyal following, and of course, launched a career for Tom Hanks.  There just aren't enough TV shows on these days with men dressing in Drag! Remember what song they used at the theme...
WFGR Retrovision: Disco Duck [VIDEO]
Wow - Here's a throwback - maybe in a good way? Can you believe this was 1977? Check out the stash on Rick Dees and this really lousy video. This song would go on to sell over 1 Million coipes in just a few short months.  Long live the novelty songs...
