I'm 63 and that was easy. #11 I said draft cards but American Flags would have been correct too. There were several movements going on at the same time: Stop the War, Equal Rights for Women, and Civil Rights. The bra burners were women protesting the treatment of women. It was a great time to me because I was young. Good Luck, Rick

I just turned 45 and I think I did well.  Missed 5 total.

 

#1   had no idea

#8   I could see his face and paused a while but could come up with his name.  I even thought of Zatarians Red Beans and Rice TV commercials, although I'm unsure if they used him or someone that just sounded like him.  Shouldda had that one but didn't.

#10 Got the second half right but couldn't think of the name.  I always have been bad with names.

#16 The clue was short and I didn't even know the subject.

#20  no idea

 

Thanks for the fun Glen

I missed:  #1, didn't have a television until I was in school, then wasn't allowed to watch daytime!

 

                #13, wrong kind of music for me!

 

                #19, remember the song, just not by that clue!

 

#16. Remember LS/MFT _____ _____/_____ _____ _____?  Had another definition, having to do with women's undergarments, but I won't print it here!    :D

I missed #3 & 20, we didn't get T.V. until 1964 so #3 really had me stumped. Thanks for the memories--- who said that? I'll post the answer tomorrow.

I missed 3.  Went blank on the limbo, Freddy, & LS/MFT. Knew what they were, brain just had it filed too far back.
