Interesting article, but perhaps the most interesting phenomenon is the  
tendency of Boomers to think they invented or discovered EVERYthing.     
Their latest discovery is:  (get this)  nostalgia.

Steve Miller, Isaac Hayes, Frampton?   It's pretty much the same thing  
as their parents or grandparents looking for their favorite Glenn  
Miller records. Most people can be "age-dated" by their favorite music  
-  the music that was popular when they were between 18 and 25.

Programming tip:   an 8-track show for boomers!    ;-)
