Now for a 23 minutes pickle raid, Imagine yourself as a Decca records executive, listening to audition tapes, looking for the next hot group or performer to sign...an act that would sell many millions of records. So, after listening to this, you decide...nope...not for Decca. Don't call us, we'll call you...

To tell you how times have changed: In High School I was in the Army Cadets. We had a range in the basement of the school, in the cafeteria! The ladies would close up the kitchen, and we'd pop the doors off the range box to reveal stacked railway ties and a foot of sand in behind. We shot converted 22 cal. Lee Enfields with telescopic peep sights. I was a good shot, got my "cross rifles and crown," expert level. 10 shots in the bullseye in one minute from the prone position at 50 ft. Single shot, bolt action. Now, of course, no guns allowed in schools. This was in the late 60's and it was normal to hear gun fire in the hall after 3:30 PM.
My high school had a gun club as well.

Can't say as I blame Decca. That demo sucked canal water! Pizzpoor song selection, didn't highlight their harmony talent and, most of all, lacked the steady beat of Ringo. Even with all that, what I heard at Crosley Field in Aug. 1966 had me very dieappointed. They sucked! Seriously sucked! Their success was due to wizardry in the recording studio. Period.

Gotta agree...they kind of sounded like a band hired for the freshman hop. In '66? You could hear them over the screaming? ;)

(edit) Sorry so slow on the switch...was watching a 1990 matchup...Earl the Pearl Strickland vs. Nick "the kentucky colonel" Varner. If I could play like either of them, I'd be a contender...LOL!

Zzzz

You seem to live within striking distance of anyone who is anyone! Makes one wonder why you live so far away from the Great and Powerful Jimbob... Hmmm...

How do you list the Top 12 and leave out Jim Backus (Mr. Magoo and Gilligan's Island?)



There's a list of 120 famous people from Cleveland, but I didn't recognize a heap of those names.

Hmmm, I'll trade you Steve Harvey for Jo Collins. Deal? :rolleyes:

And it's all real...not a speck of silicone, Yes, Janet Canoy, aka Jo Collins, was amazing eye candy during her glory days.

(edit) Matter of fact, she gets my nod as the absolute yummiest of all the eye candy posted on this thread. Argue if you choose to,,,

How many of you remember "dress codes" back in school? Or, how about that mean teacher or principal who thought they were the Gestapo?

We had one of those "Gestapo" men for a principal. Here's the story.

Our first principal wore an ungodly ugly wide, wide tie with a big flamingo on it. One pre-planned day per year, all of us kids would raid our dad's ties and find the widest and ugliest, then sneak it and wear it at school. Since the nearly-bald principal's nickname was "Fuzz," the day was known as "Fuzz Tie Day." After the second Fuzz Tie Day, the following opening day of school Fuzz called a special school assembly in the school gym. He started his lecture with, "Why-uh, we had it last year and we had it the year before that. But we're NOT going to have it this year!" Of course, he was wrong. We had it. That bit of tomfoolery, though, backfired big time. Fuzz was fired and a new, much younger principal hired. This man was downright mean and would punish the boys with a horrible beating with a thick wooden paddle with holes drilled in it. These day's he would be sent to prison for those beatings. Yes, this man missed his calling. Everyone said he would've made a perfect Gestapo man in Nazi Germany.

Here's the film. Enjoy. OR ELSE!

We had a crazy math teacher who threw a guy out the first floor window into the garden below. Then he packed up his stuff and said, "F--k this S--t, I quit." Never saw him again. His name was Mr. Devine. Can't make this stuff up.

There were the "cool kids"...mostly the jocks and their girlfriends. Top of that heap was the Quarterback and the yell queen. Various groups...but generally speaking, the "cool kids" were happy while the rest of us suffered along in various forms of misery. I was a dork among the miserable...scared to death about the future.

I'm not one to go to high school reunions...
