pretty much means the same thing as the phrase back in the day
Way back when, companies had customer service.

There was a time, way back when America produced good cars. Nowadays only Ford produces good cars.

Back in the day, America was a prosperous nation.

Back in the day only degenerates went to tracks like Charles Town but nowadays with slot machines the purses are so artificially high that all of the action is good.
