Someone  who is 65 today was born in 1948.  That means they were a
teenager for  the first British Invasion, and probably started a family
in the  1970s.  (Maybe as early as '66, not likely much later than
'83.)   They never listened to Big Bands or '40s crooners, except when
forced to by  their parents.

Very true, especially that last sentence.  And many had 40's BigBand  & 
50's standards forced upon them.  BUTTTTTTT.....   it's  something I keep 
hearing over and over and over from WJIB listeners....   They want to hear it 
because it reminds them of their fond memories of their  parents.  Or in the 
case of the 30-somethings that listen... fond memories  of the grandparents.   
-  Photographs and MUSIC are probably the  two major "emotion grabbers" in 
----On a related note, $20k was just spent by WJTO for a new  transmitter, 
and repair of portions of the ground system. So WJTO's music  should be 
blasting onto much of Cape Cod.
