life in and around NYC is insane

feeling old!

So my favorite radio station is WCBS-FM, a station that plays "oldies".

That once meant music from the 50's, 60's and 70's, but more recently has come to mean music from the 60's, 70's and 80's.

But yesterday...OMG, yesterday they played....they played...OMG, they played a song by Backstreet Boys!

In the late 1990's and early 2000's young girls -- like my twosome -- debated the relative merits of Backstreet Boys versus *NSYNC.  Which boy band was better?  I took the girls to see *NSYNC in 2002, we sat behind the stage, and my kids were convinced Joey Fatone winked at them. I took them to see BackStreet Boys.  We saw Backstreet Boys in 2005.

My music on an oldies station, that's normal.

My daughters' music on an oldies station??????

I feel old.

So here it is, the song played on WCBS last night.  From 1999, here are the Backstreet Boys with their hit song, I Want It That Way.

It isn't our CBS FM anymore. They never use the word oldies and you won't hear any '60s period.
