These Are Not Your Dad’s Versions of ‘Jingle Bells’ [Video]

In addition to my gig as mid-day host on 98.7 WFGR, I am also our operations manager. Part of my job is helping schedule the music for WFGR and 100.5 The River.

So, yes, I have gotten to know my Christmas songs well, very well. And I can tell you this: A couple of new videos of "Jingle Bells" renditions are definitely not your dad's version of the holiday classic.

Sounds You’ll Soon Never Hear Again – #14

Today's printers might actually work -- well, most of the time but boy don't we miss bone-crunching sound of the dot matrix is one of the most immediately recognizable noises in yesterday's technology.

Sounds You’ll Never Hear Again – #17 [VIDEO]

The cry of the AOL mail man was damn near ubiquitous in the 90s. For future generations, it'll be about as familiar as those blasted "50 free hours" disks we used to get sent every seven days. I still think I have a whole pile of them sitting somewhere - Or there is a landfill - or several for that matter full of those things

Sounds You’ll Never Hear Again – #19 [VIDEO]

I bring you #19 on the list of the 20 sounds you'll soon hear disappear in the next 10 years or so...

The brief tone. The dialing of those magical numbers. And that screech -- by God, that screech.
