The Old Is New Again!

Hi everyone! I mean, Sneakers! It’s been a while since we did a “Links” post, but we had a special one this week so I thought I’d throw a few up here on the website in case some people don’t see our Facebook page.

First up is our own Ian in a Radio Shack commercial from 1996.

What a nice looking fellow! How are Radio Shacks doing in other parts of the world? Here in Canada the chain was bought out by Best Buy and turned into The Source. I guess there are not enough ham radio operators building their own radio sets to support a store like Radio Shack. Another reason the whole ham radio operator crash of the early-2000’s was such a disaster!

Ian mentioned a Ben Folds Five video featuring Muppets, which I’d never seen so here it is:

Awww, that’s adorable. Actually, the Fraggles are a bit late for me as I was firmly ensconced in teenage gloom by the time they came along so I don’t have any nostalgia for them, but it was cool anyway.

Here is a making of video as a chaser:

People talking about themselves! (Like a podcast.)

Well, I know this one was short and sweet, but sometimes you have to ease yourself back into the saddle.

Ciao, Sneakers!
