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.

As a GenX'er I still remember the thrill of buying a new record album, running home and carefully opening the record, putting it on the turntable, then listening to the entire album while looking through the album cover for behind-the-scenes pictures and lyrics. I'm not saying that this is better than CDs or digital downloads but it was a different experience. In this week's podcast we think back on those days and how records and tapes influenced our lives.
