Wondering where this place Vietnam was that my dad talked about?

The Iran Hostages and singing that song "Tie a Yellow ribbon" in Music class every single week (maybe that was 1980)

Seeing Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory on TV

Going with my uncle to see movies such as Godzilla and those Herbie the Love Bug shows.

DRIVE IN MOVIES- Being a little kid and watching "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" while sitting in a car. I just knew that Leatherface was going to come running out of the woods at anytime!

Getting a 13 inch Black and White TV for Christmas 1979, and watching the ball drop. My brother and I were so excited, it was about to become a whole new decade and we thought "This is 1980, everything is going to be so different now, bring on the flying cars!"

I remember watching the Smurfs on German TV when I lived there somewhere between 73 and 78.

This was before they became a hit in North America. Moved back to Canada in 78 and shortly after the Smurfs arrived in English.

Star Wars was a big impact.

Some other movies/tv stuff I vaguley remember seeing in that timeframe:

Futureworld
Westworld
Orca
Jaws
Logan's Run
Planet of the Apes
Herbie the Love Bug movies
Osmonds
Robin Hood (cartoon with the Fox as RH)
Star Trek the Motion Picture (V'ger Lives!)
Close Encounters of the Third Kind


'nuff for now

Chiteng and Walterscott are partially correct, but the biggest significance was that Gary Gilmore was the FIRST person to be executed AFTER the US Supreme Court ruled that execution was not 'cruel and unusual' punishment. Utah is scheduled to shoot 2 more death row inmates in June, WOOT!!!!

Most of my memories of the 70s are pretty faint, lots of partying will do that for you

The Hustle and all its variants

Dancing the night away in cheap Studio 54 wannabe clubs

All the John Travolta imitators in their awful double knit polyester leisure suits

Moratorium Day and wearing a black armband to protest the war even though we were told that any military dependent wearing one would result in disciplinary action against their sponsor.

Kent State and the awful shootings there.

Crying my eyes out when they announced Paul McCartney was dead over my local radio station. Turned out it was all based on the Abbey Road album crap.

Those are what stick out for me listed in the order they occured to me not order of importance or anything else.

Default Concerts in the 70's...

/shudder to think Gurg lived near me at any given point in time!
/tease


Pink Floyd on the "Dark Side of the Moon" tour at the LA Colliseum and watching as plain clothes police would jump out of seats and tackle people when they lit up, and how the entire Colliseum was obviously tripping their faces off. During "Time" model airplanes flew down from the back of the room and exploded into the stage. The first time anyone used a "surround sound" mix at a live show. To date one of the top 5 concerts I have been to, hands down, despite Police Chief Willie Davis' attempts to bust the entire Colliseum that night. That concert changed lives, in a way that only Floyd could pull off. /drool

Yes on the "Fragile" tour and Rick Wakeman with blonde hair down to his knees wearing a gold sequin robe and becoming a God-like gold blur behind the keyboards.

Emerson, Lake & Palmer on the "Brain Salad Surgery" tour and Keith Emerson's piano levitated and spun 360 degree upside down circles while he played.

The Grateful Dead at Pauley Pavillion on the UCLA campus in 1978. I paid $5 for my ticket. They played St. Stephen. I spent tons of money and even more brain cells over the next 20 years, waiting for them to repeat that. They never did. /scowl
Well not that I remember, anyway....

A few of my memories....

I remember my older sisters crying when the Beatles broke up.
Watching the Vietnam war played out on the network news almost nightly

The Reverend Jim Jones and the Guyana death cult
Three Mile Island
EVIL KNIEVIL

Charlie's Angels (and that Farrah Fawcett swimsuit poster that hung on my wall)
Emergency
Adam 12
Brady Bunch
Partridge Family
The Love Boat
SNL with John Belushi, Dan Ackroid, Chevy Chase, Laraine Newman, Gilda Radner, Jane Curtain, Garrett Morris, Bill Murray.

Being able to go to a concert by one of the bands listed by Ziktiny for $10-15
Styx
Yes
Kansas
The Eagles
Frank Zappa

Black lights and those velvet posters
Lava lamps
Bean bag chairs
Steve Martin's "Wild and Crazy Guy", doing the King Tut
Richard Pryor was the most dangerous man in comedy at the time

Standing in a line that wrapped ALL THE WAY around the mall to see Jaws, and being so scared after I wasn't able to sleep that night.
The Sting
Silent Running
2001: A Space Odyssey

The battle of the sexes pitting Billie Jean King against Bobby Riggs in tennis matches.

Too long ago and my memory is fading, damn I'm old

I cant help it, even women that keep flaming me.

Even tho I am way to old to pursue them like I did in the 70's

Waiting in line at a disco for a table =)

Pointing out that a motel was just across the street =)

Somehow they never seemed to recognize the utility =)

But its really odd, back then, this was considered 'normal'

I can't imagine how Cattie would know about switching channels really fast....

But I do remember when we had an old style cable converter with a dial on the front. A strategically folded playing card inserted between the face and the top of the box and gentlely pulled back would wedge itself between the contacts on the dial and the scrambling circuit...

I spent many late night hours watching the Playboy Channel.

That was called "Hey, Hey, It's Saturday!" I believe.

It grew up with its target audience as well, becomming "Hey, Hey, It's Saturday Night!" at one point... It was never the same after Ossie Ostrich left.

Finally died sometime in the late 90s/early Naughties I think. I can't remember.

Great show though.

Agreed, I grew up with Hey Hey, it's Saturday. The show was best with that ditzy Jacqui chick.

Ahhh, painless days of youth...

Daryl Sommers was one of the biggest wankers to ever hit Australian TV.

You want the real guys with wit, you look to Graham Kennedy, Bert Newton and Don Lane.

Never watched Hey Hey for Daryl Somers' wit. Didn't know he had any to start with. It was an all round cool show up to the late 80's.

Where else could a non-entity like Red Symons get some semblance of fame anyhow?
