Was 103.5FM...now 'Memory Lane'

I remember that when I was in HS (1972-75), that we could not bring a calculator into any math classes, that was cheating....and obiously, there were no PCs at that time (In fact..I thinks some people called calculators 'computers')

Heck...if it wasn't Live on Ch 2 (WGBH-TV Boston), we didn't watch TV in the classroom (OH...we did watch the first couple of innings of the 1967 World Series...back when they still played in DAYLIGHT!)..

We couldn't afford them when I was in elementary school (ca. 1985).  In
High School, in 1991, we were using Commodore C-64 machines that had been
in service since 1986...

Currently I'm writing this from Pentium III running Windows 2000 at work
telnetting into a 90Mhz Pentium running Linux at home. :P

Go figure.
