Ahh.. Melanie Safka's rollerskates (with hard rubber or steel wheels before polymer plastics).
In the day before the day, you were lucky if your car had AM radio that played the Monitor network for coast-to-coast programming. And then there was CONELRAD.
Tapes? They still made new piano-rolls back when our player piano still worked.
My latest favorite oxymoron is "rap music." But I've never learned to enjoy that new-fangled rock-and-roll, so ......
(And "new-fangled" isn't even on my spellchecker.)
Oh...and when did "no problem" replace "you're welcome?" And "thank you" become "thank YO ?"(I think I've asked this before. Another sign of advancing decrepitude is saying something more than once, unsure whether you've said it before.)
