Anyone remember KDIA, Jumpin' George? KOBY Radio? KYA? The Doggie Diner? The afternoon Oakland Tribune? Waiting in the car to catch the ferry before the completion of the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge. The Oakland Oaks and the PCL. Bob Sherwood, what was the name of his early TV-Talk/variety show? The dance party on KPIX. The Saturday dance party show with kids from all over the Bay Area.

Not reading through the whole thread so if I repeat any, sorry. These are mainly Berkeley and Oakland oriented.

Liberty House in Oakland

Hinks in Berkeley

CO-OP (remember these for those of you from the Berkeley area? there were only three of them)

The Saw Mill with Marty Sherman. Does that still exist?

The Santa Fe train that went down the middle of Sacramento st. in Berkeley

Emeryville was an abandoned wasteland

The Serramonte Ford jingle: "we wanna be your car dealer at Serramonte Ford

One of my favs. "Pete Ellis Dodge, 1095 west El Camino Real Sunnyvale" (Although he had this exact same jingle with different words for a dealership in Bellflower)

KPIX had Dave Mackelhatten and Wendy Tacuta (sp? on those)

"It's it" ice cream sandwhiches. Do they still make those?

OMG, I sang on the Saw Mill jingle, "You need it, we got it, all at The Saw Mill!"

Are there any Dairy Belles left?

What about Jolly's?

I think they are all kaput.

However, there is at least one Foster's Freeze left (in Menlo Park).

As far as I know the Foster's Freeze in Milpitas is still open. I haven't been in that part of town for a few months.

Is anyone here "of a certain age" (ahem...) who might recall the name of any of the dance clubs the were west of 880 on Broadway from the late 1960's?

If not, ask your parents, OK?

(Oh, and we used to call 880 "The Nimitz".)
