You have to grow older, but you don't have to grow up...

We're Generation X'ers who spent our childhood immersed in the music, movies, games, and pop culture of the 70s, 80s, & 90s, and all that stuff shaped who we are today as adults. GenXGrownUp looks at yesterday and today through the eyes of Gen X'ers who refuse to grow up.

Backtrack: Novelty Records

I won’t say that Generation X had the silliest novelty songs, but we sure had a ton of them! Such classics as “Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah,” “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer,” and “Monster Mash” were at the top of our hit list when we were kids! In this episode we talk about some of the unique songs and unique methods of how we got them. Remember, no internet back then, we actually got records in cereal boxes if you can believe that!
