Midwest Time-Warp Trips
Keeping the retro spirit
Think back on the 1950s. Has there ever been an era we remembered so fondly, even if we were born a generation later (or even if we really know it wasn't quite so perfect)?
So go ahead. Put on those rose-colored glasses and join us in a little toast. Here's to poodle skirts, bobby socks and skinny ties. Here's to cruising in a Chevy with fins, windows down, the dial tuned to the Billboard countdown. Here's to first kisses in high school gymnasiums and teary breakups in the parking lot outside. Here's to the music that changed us all--and that our children and grandchildren still groove to a half-century later.
And here's to a few great Midwest places and events that, with good humor and a heaping dose of nostalgia, keep those memories alive.
