heres what I remember

schaefer and the eggman was on magic 96.1 werent they?

I remember Jay Thomas being a DJ on WAYS AM 61 (now 610 AM) Big WAYS. He's been in a few TV shows, notably Eddie on Cheers....

remember when there was midtown square instead of the target and all that stuff? and there was a movie theater over there?

Before it was Mid-Town Square it was Charlottetown Mall...the theater is where we used to go see midnight movies like Rocky Horror Picture Show. And do acid. :)

remember when south park mall was the actual south park mall and not the piece of poo it is now?

Yep, got lost there when I was a kid.

remember when you could go ice skating at eastland and not have to worry about being shot?

How about Farrells in Eastland? That place was the poo for birthday parties

remember when it used to be eckerds? .....o well, i still call it eckerds

Yep me too

Wasn't it like inside SP? Like you could get into it through the mall?

SPEAKING of that, remember when they had the cafeteria at South Park? Man, I loved that place! Yeah it was a little grungy and grimey but it was straight southern cafeteria food and you go through the line with your little tray surrounded by old people. good times.

Also, they don't have music stores in SP anymore. There used to be atleast 2 CD/DVD/Media Play-type stores in there.

Eddie was filmed in Charlotte also...They used the old Morrocroft Estate and the Coliseum

Also, I remember the BBQ stations at the old Coliseum like it was yesterday. I loved that stuff

Anyone remember the Epicurean Restaurant? Then they had the sign up to build a new one across from Brixx for the longest time.

The ribbon cutting ceremony for Speedway Blvd. before Concord Mills was built. That was when Harris Blvd. was pretty much it before Poplar Tent & Concord

Remember when the mascot for the Charlotte NBA team was an homage to both the history of the city as well as a natural disaster that struck the city and was not a narcissistic embodiment of an owner's ego?
