The Theme from the Dukes of Hazzard Good Ol’ Boys, Waylon Jennings, this Week’s Solid Gold Pick [VIDEO]

Make no bones about it, this is Waylon Jennings song!  He recorded it in 1980.  He wrote the song and it actually had two versions, one for the hit TV show, The Dukes of Hazzard, and a radio version. It became Waylon's 12th number one hit in Country music.  But, he wasn't the only one singing it and that lead to some confusion.

What Jeans Fit You Best in the 70′s and 80′s, HASH, Jordache, Calvin Klein [VIDEO]

 

If you're around my age, you probably once wished for a pair of HASH jeans.  I begged my mother for TWO years, before I finally got a pair of dark brown HASH cords (corduroy). HASH jeans fit most people really well, they had bell bottoms, a double star design and the letters HASH stitched in gold on the back pocket.  Remember?  Did you own a pair?

Take a Nostalgic Journey Remembering Stores at the Miller Hill Mall from Years Past [audio]

Ken and I posed the question on Facebook "what stores do you remember that use to exist in the Miller Hill Mall"?  You were terrific in sparking our memories!  I thought I was doing well with Tivoli (the store that says, "it's I love it spelled backwards), and I was really reaching for Berman's Buckskins, but I don't know how many times I said, "oh my gosh, I totally forgot that one!"
