The death of a Gen-X icon 30 years later. Memories of Old Country Buffet plus tips on how to be a meat carver. Some heavy-hitting stores that closed in the 1980s and 1990s. The legacy of TV Guide magazine.
Episode 139 of the podcast runs the gamut from heavy to light but is filled with nostalgia.
30 years ago this week the world of music, the world of pop culture, and a generation overall, lost a giant. Kurt Cobain, lead singer of Nirvana, was found dead in his home. The moment sent shockwaves through Generation-X and changed the trajectory of Grunge and Alternative music forever. This week we will look at the death of Kurt Cobain and why it was such a massive moment in music history.
On the other end of the spectrum in nostalgia, we go way Back In the Day and reminisce about Old Country Buffet. Not only are we going to share some fun memories of eating until we nearly exploded, but we're also going to review a classic training video that features the ins and outs of being a meat carver at Old Country Buffet.
Giants of business that have faded away will be the topic of this week's Top 5. We will focus in on some famous stores that closed during the 1980s and 1990s.
In a new This Week In History and Time Capsule we will look back at the creation and legacy of TV Guide magazine.
