Music trends always change, sometimes drastically within a few years, and not always for the better. Baby boomers got to experience the birth of rock 'n' roll, with classic greats like Elvis Presley hip-shakin' to "Hound Dog" and "Jailhouse Rock." The Beatles started the British Invasion in the '60s, followed quickly by the Rolling Stones and the Who, all of which had awesome hits we now hear on the oldies station. Who could mistake the iconic riff of Purple Haze as belonging to anyone other than Jimi Hendrix? The '70s and '80s gave us great music from bands like Fleetwood Mac and musicians like David Bowie.
