    I was a 60's kid, so I guess some of those things came after my childhood. I remember most, the current events of that era and products, but some of the toys are not familiar. By 1970 I was in my second year of drag racing and was in college. I'm a fossil.

    Born in the 50s......Don't remember 1. The telephone - area code 518. Upstate NY, Albany area. That's where I lived. And Lee Majors, the 6 million dollar man. If they would make him today, would it be 6 billion? Great memories!

    I remember nearly all of the stuff from the 70s when I was growing up. K-tel had some great commercials for their records.

    I had quite a few K-tel and Ronco products. Their commercials always got my attention. Kind of like looking through the Sears toy catalog.

    Oh man, I haven't thought about that in a long time! That was a big deal in our house.

    Hell yeah, how else were we supposed to let Santa know what you wanted. I included page and item numbers on my list :)

    I used to sit down with that catalog and type my Christmas list and would include page numbers and item numbers on the page so Santa didn't get confused and bring me the wrong god damn AFX racing track. Lol
