Cool Site Recommendation: RetroCRUSH

From time to time I will run brief notes about some of my favorite sites...starting with this one.

A Feast for your nostalgic tastes

Time to hip you to one of my favorite destinations on the internets, RetroCRUSH.

The site features all kinds of cool stuff to trigger memories of things you probably thought you’d forgotten about, and brings them vividly back to your brain. They also manage to blend in contemporary things like reviews of current movies, which makes this one of my favorite stops for all things disposable and wonderful about popular culture.

What really made this one of my faves was the introduction of their very own podcast. Webmaster Robert Berry, whose unique voice sounds like a cross between a grown-up version of Yogi Bear’s pal Boo Boo and well, someone else, is your host. Robert takes you through a cool audio tour of the retro world, playing vintage audio clips, interviews with forgotten stars (like one of the Landers sisters!). listener voice mails (some of which are truly bizarre, thanks to what appear to be drunken dialers), and other aural treats. The fact that Berry is an entertaining listen makes it all the more enjoyable.

If pop culture is your thing, you owe it to yourself to check out Retrocrush. Even if it isn't the site is an absolute gas, and worth a few moments of your time.
