DANNYKOOL with his oh so fitting screen name and great grasp of the Oldies music scene was one of the first roomies I had the privilege of talking too when I first came into the Oldies Room. I am very glad that he took the time to join in this project. ~GOHAWKSGO
I believe I started in the room some time around September or October of 1998. At that time I was on the verge of canceling AOL because I had no Interests or online friends. I
live in Connecticut. I am 62 years old and smoked for 48 of those years before quitting in 2004 following a serious bout with Pneumonia.
I live for 50’s music with my favorites being Buddy Holly, Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent, the Big Bopper and vocal groups like the Skyliners, Platters, Dubs and the Dells. I could go on and on with at least 100 more. In the last year and a half I have had the pleasure of meeting many roomies including DJF, FOXHARL12, WACKJACKI, HUGYBEAR, EVILRICH CRABALOCKER, MARGYBEAR, GLIMMERTWINS, SECRETGARDEN, SUZANROSE, TJBEATLEFAN, CARRINGTON, FLWRCHILD, NITEMANN, IRISHJIGGER, TERRILEE, MYDOGDOESTRICKS, TIARA, DIKCLARKSCORPSE and more. I did 2 trips to WACKIJACKI’s and 1 to TJBEATLEFAN’s.
The most fun I have had was doing trivia with folks like DUKE, JACOFAN, SUZIEQCCR, CHEX,BARCODE, LILQUEEN58, CHERRICAT, BRORAYFAN and others. I honestly feel that I have made over 100 friends in this room but I can’t name them all as I am afraid I would miss someone.
If I could do anything to make this room better I wish there would be a separate room for 50’s and 60’s trivia and another oneor 70’s and 80s.
