Explore Store Route, Charlie Greer, and more!

Dennison Men's Clothiers ad (c. 1960s), read by overnight deejay Charlie Greer on 77 WABC. Always loved hearing those ads for the now-defunct store (Route 22, Union, New Jersey) whenever I listened to my transistor radio under the covers in the middle of the night. The ads, always tongue-twisters, were written in "iambic pentameter." (Yeah, I had to look it up too.)

Joe and Aggies Cafe, Route 66, Holbrook, Arizona

On Route 66 in Holbrook, AZ,, Joe and Aggie's Cafe has been there since the early '40's. Wonderful, friendly service and good food. Still family owned

Always had the "rarest" action figures you couldn't find anywhere else. Bought my first ever CD here. :)

If you EVER go to Maine and happen to be driving on Route 1 in Kittery, you HAVE to stop at this store! It opened back in the 80's, if I remember right, and I'd get some old-fashioned candies there. The store is an amazing treasure trove of hard-to-find candies! They have a website, too. And, no, I do not get paid to advertise, I just like to tell folks about a good thing.
