We always like to say that our show has a little something for everyone, and our 8:30 half-hour this morning was a prime example, at least speaking from a generational perspective. First, our resident gadget guru Paul Hochman was by to talk about some cool gifts for graduates. Throughout the segment, just for fun, we had various facts about the Class of 2007 flashing across the screen, to illustrate the age in which they grew up. Some of those factoids:
-The Class of 2007 has never driven a Datsun
-The Class of 2007 has only known unleaded gas
-The Class of 2007 has always been able to fit computers in their backpacks
Immediately after we finished discussing some highly technological gadgets such as a portable satellite TV system and a pair of sunglasses with a built-in MP3 player (awesome!), we brought you a concert by BLONDIE. The first song they performed was "Call Me," which was made famous in the film "American Gigolo." WATCH VIDEO That film was released in 1980, at which point the college graduates of 2007 were still about 5 years away from being conceived. Then 21-year-old new music sensation Lily Allen joined the band for a performance. WATCH VIDEO 33 years after getting together, Blondie is still rocking it. And I'll bet that they could teach the class of 2007 a thing or two about driving a Datsun.
