I'd sit by my radio for hours waiting for a song to come on so I could hit "Play Record".

Mix tapes and taping off the radio. Remember waiting for hours for your favorite song to come on...just so you could record it?

1980's ipod- waiting patiently by the radio with your fingers on the record and play buttons, trying to catch your favorite songs on the radio

Memorex Cassette Tape (I still have one of these. I made a mix tape for my husband (boyfriend) 21 years ago!

I remember wearing these in the 90s

Every girl rocked the banana clip back in the 80's and 90's! Oh I had plenty of these :) and then you'd put em over your eyes and pretended to be Jordi LaForge from star trek.

Banana Clips! I always broke mine. It wasn't till the 90's when they made them a little bigger that I could actually wear them cause my hair was so thick.

Roller skating every weekend!

Friday or Saturday night at the Skating Rink. You thought you were it when you could stay for an all night skate!

You spent your Friday or Saturday night at the Skating Rink. You thought you were it when you could stay for an all night skate! Loved Loved Loved skating.Brings back alot of memories

Couples skate, the hokey-pokey, Simon Says and the amazing feeling of cruising around the skating rink backwards – that was roller skating in the 80s. When the weather was bad or you needed a cool escape from the summertime heat, the roller rink was the perfect retreat. It offered good music, a fun activity, junk food a-plenty and the promise of cute boys. Dark and wondrous inside, even in the middle of the afternoon, the roller rink was likeescaping to another world.

I remember going roller skating at the roller skating rink every other Friday night.

I loved spending my Friday or Saturday nights at the Skating Rink.

Roller skating at the rink. Every Friday and Saturday night.

I so loved roller skating and roller skating parties!

Rollerskating on Saturday night !!

Roller Girl

Haha!! I remember this!!

I remember that lol, it took a lot of strength to let those old mix tapes go...funny how my iTunes play lists have a lot of the same songs on them!

Oh the days of sitting in front of the radio listening to the top 40 countdown and waiting to press the record to get in on your mix tape.

YES! And having a mixtape full of half recorded songs because you didn't catch the first minute.

And now we have every song ever recorded at our fingertips...yet another reason the past sucked

I remember the first song I ever recorded on tape...Quit Playing Games by the Backstreet Boys!

...those were the days! @Rósa Guðjónsdóttir Fairytale Stufflebeam Goza

Use to tape the whole thing...
