Have you ever wished for a time machine so you could go back and see what the world was like before you came into the world? Sadly, you cannot have one, but you can come close with the help of the Internet. Radio Time Machine is a really cool web app that allows you to choose a year and go back and hear the music that was most popular in that time frame. All the music choices come from the Billboard Top 100, which is one of the most reputable sources for music tracking.
