Re: A TEST FOR OLD KIDS

I got 13-15 (7)The draft card I thought was the flag and (13)Elvis instead of Buddy Holly. I thought burning bras was more to do with the womens lib movement?

Re: A TEST FOR OLD KIDS

All but three. One of them I knew but drew a blank (Louis Armstrong) and I guessed an alternate answer to another one. So really the only one I didnt remember was Freedy the Freeloader but I did get part B of that question right!

(And I am NOT old enough to remember most of it first hand).
