The Goldbergs pulled out the cassette deck in ’12 Tapes For A Penny’ and I was immediately brought back to my childhood when I was doing the exact same thing as Adam and trying to record music from the radio. This was the modern day version of pirating music. Everyone did it and nobody cared! Take me back, damnit!
If you haven’t guessed from the title, this episode was allll about Columbia House where people everywhere would purchase tapes or CD’s for a penny and then find themselves trapped in a legal contract where they were required to pay full price for the rest. Not only that, we had to WAIT for them to come in the mail. Yup, life was a lot simpler back then. Still, there was a ton of excitement the day the package arrived after your first order and I remember binge listening to all of my CD’s the moment they arrived. This episode definitely has a special place in my heart for allowing me to relive some great childhood moments.
Now grab yourself a banana split and enjoy all of the best moments from The Goldbergs, fellow ’80s rockstars!
