She'd tune the radio to the A.M. station that played oldies from the '20s through the '50s. The station I.D. was "Your memory maker." Suki Anderson Art director I will never stop mourning the loss of Wild and Woolly Video. I know the Internet has heaps of everything. But there was something thrilling about roaming the store and catching a glimpse of the odd and obscure, entertain- ing and campy. I'm bummed movie nights with my kids won't include scanning the walls for the new stuff and then fingering through an army of plastic-encased film covers in hopes of hunting down something spectacular. Anne Marshall Senior writer The Vogue Theater on Lexington Road was Louisville's last single-screen independent movie house, and it showed an eclectic mix of black-and-white classics, art and foreign re- leases, and other noncommercial notables. It closed in 1998, but I remember like yesterday my last trip there: Revelers like me, many of us having smuggled in a few adult treats, filled nearly all 800 seats to watch David Byrne of the Talking Heads do his big-suit dance in the Stop Making Sense concert movie. It got even better as we exited through a gaggle of costumed, in-character cultists waiting for the weekly midnight showing of The Rocky Horror Picture Show that ran for more than 20 years at the Vogue. Bruce Allar Contributing writer 15 Ounce Premium Denim on Lexington Road. The staff would always fetch a different size or give an honest opinion. In many other stores, the employees seem to avoid catching your eye or watch you like you're a criminal. Mandy Wood Advertising account executive I miss not being able to make more blurry memories at T. Eddie's. The dive bar, on the border of Shelby Park and Germantown, was where I learned how to throw an unwanted shot of booze on the floor undetected, and it's where I cut my teeth as an up-and-coming karaoke star. Speaking of teeth, it's also the place I chipped my front tooth. I think of you every time I smile, T. Eddie's. Katie Molck Contributing writer I was crazy about trains as a kid. Thomas was my ride-or-die, and I'm pretty sure his bright- red buddy, James, came as close to a crush as a three-year-old can have on an anthropo- morphic locomotive. Even though I don't col- lect trains anymore (though I still have a scar from when I was a little dude and tripped and slashed my neck on a model's smokestack), I was bummed when L&N Trains and Things on Frankfort Avenue closed in 2013 after 32 years in business. Tiny tracks wound through idyllic villages and other elaborate setups. It was so easy to head over to Clifton and catch a quick ride to childhood. Dylon Jones Staff writer
