20. Those pictures do make me homesick
Edited on Thu May-28-09 11:48 PM by Joe Bacon
I left for Los Angeles in 1982 when the steel industry collapsed. I still get homesick for Pittsburgh, still remember the good times when I was going to Pitt, eating fries and hotdogs at the Original, big winks, Isaly's chocolate marshmallow ice cream, AND chipped ham, then there are the pierogis (which only Trader Joe's has a fair version of), and Primanti Brothers sandwiches. Once I was talking to the folks at Canter's deli about Primanti Brothers sandwiches, and they got a big chuckle about cole slaw AND fries on a sandwich.

And I still have memories of Chilly Billy, Paul Shannon, Bill Burns, Paul Long and Ray Tannehill. I can remember listening to KDKA as a kid laughing myself sick over Rege Cordic. Several years ago, I went on KDKA radio's webpage, thinking that Art Pallan may still be broadcasting, what sadness to hear nothing but right wing hate on that station. Years ago, I still remember when Mike Levine and later Roy Fox at least balanced rightwingers like John Cigna. So sad.
