“When you hear old songs on the radio, it doesn’t have the same effect. They never really went out of style. But when you hear the first few words of an old advertisement or show, it takes you right back,” says Cleveland expat Dan O’Shannon.

When he unearthed the Captain Penny audio, O’Shannon, 47, had not heard that signoff since he was a kid. He put the sound bite on a compilation, which is now sold as Cleveland Memory Grenade at The Only Cleveland Store in Tower City. You’ll get lost — maybe overwhelmed — in the nostalgia.
