I was born in December of 1969...


In December 1969 I was sitting in my MGB with my girlfriend Nancy listening to WOR-FM 98.7 New York City...





...and this song, which was just released, came on...


Badfinger - Come and get it (1969)



We smiled at each other and said "A new Beatles song!"

I was born in December of 1969 so I don't have much.

Seriously though, interesting reading guys.  Keep em coming.

Ditto. I was born in January 1968, but I love reading all these.

June 1956 for me. I was a kid when it started and the end of kid hood in 1970. I'm glad of it too. I didn't get into the bad stuff but enjoyed the music. You could actually go out after dark and your parents didn't worry about the wacko's out there. They worried abut what you were doing! ha2ha

I remember my brother getting a transistor radio - blown away by the concept of portable music. For years I thought that because they were so small trannies could only play music and not words.
I was thinking about this not so long ago and I realised why I probably thought his; my brother was listening to back to back music on a new fangled commercial station, while my parents big old valve radio had only be tuned to state radio, where the only music I remember was the mouth organ solo in The Goon Show intermission.

Having a paper route

I could identify with most of the items on your list, George, but this one really struck me. When and why did newspapers stop being
delivered on foot by kids and just tossed at the end of your driveway by adults in trucks/cars? I had a paper route from ages 12
through 16 (when I got a job as a cashier) and really cleaned up, money-wise. People appreciated have their papers delivered on
time in the morning (and the evening; I had both) and would tip you accordingly. It was a great lesson in responsibility; after all, it's
not like you can just skip a day, or call in sick. I wish my own kids could have had paper routes. It would have been good for them.
