AIR DATE: December 19, 2011

We talk to two local store owners - one deals with toys of the 60's through the 80's - the other sells video games from that era.  We  talk about why people become so nostalgic for the toys of their youth and why everybody's mother threw them out. Rosebud.

GUEST
Johnny Jimenez, owner, The Toy Shack
Steve Davis, Owner, GameWorld
