Remember these? I honestly haven't even seen these cereals much less had them on my countertop in decades!

Wow, what a difference huh? Things have come a long way and it's always interesting to see what lasts, just like the music you listen to on this station.

Have fun reminiscing and check out this classic commercial that you might remember too from the 80's!
