Well, there was the “clang clang clang” of the trolley.

Whenever I visited relatives in OK, someone would always ask me if I listened to KSHE.


I will add...Soulard Mardi Gras.
BB's Jazz and Soup
Broadway Oyster Bar
Parking by the airport and watch the planes come in for landing
Cruising Jefferson Blvd and watching the hookers
I remember there being a specific lot on Lindbergh where everyone parked for this. The lot was removed when the tunnel was built, but it was a fantastic spot. Right at the end of the runway, not far from the underpass. Could even see the runway lighting.

And now that reminds me of Carrollton. I wish they would tear up the old streets. It's very eerie for people who remember it.

I recall that lot as well. Was pretty cool seeing the planes land and take off right over you.

I know this is very old, but I will never forget those Maul's barbeque sauce ads - because they were a constant presence on TV and the radio and my Dad did in fact Maul it.

Don't recall the pool one though.
