Back in the ’80s, when I was young, I would listen to WCBS fm. It’s the big Oldies station in New York. I no longer live in New York, but every now and then I listen to the station again. Still the same music, which I guess is the point of an Oldies station:  Buddy Holly, “Hey, Paula,” Herman’s Hermits, Motown, “The Logical Song,” Mr. Mister, Madonna, just about every piece of crap (or otherwise) that moved a lot of units sometime during the past 50 years. Except the ads used to be mainly for cars and household goods and now a lot of them are for cemeteries and funeral homes. That’s the depressing part. 

UPDATE:  An ad for Honda, another for Coors, even Insider.com and DirecTV. Hopeful signs.
