Just curious, how does one define a "true oldie"?

I consider oldies as Doo Wop stuff. Usually prior to 1962.

Or you can use REW's mirror trick. Hey REW where did you hear about oldies, was it your parents?

Nope, my grandpa. My parents were big Elvis and Beatles fans.

Stranger things have happened. I was shocked when I found out my dad enjoyed Beavis and Butthead...
