Well, I guess I'm the young one. When I was in Jr. High, I used to listen to AT40 and the Dr. Demento show on a Panasonic Toot-a-Loop AM radio.

I had ultra modern Spademan spring bindings in 1965 - on wooden skis I painted "racing red" with red house paint.

Always loved "The Cockroach that ate Cincinnati". Now I have all his works on CD.

Picked up WLS-Chicago in Whitewood, Saskatchewan.
It was either that or mating grasshoppers.

That Toot-a-Loop is great. I had a blue AM Panapet. Panasonic... just slightly ahead of our time.

And then someone on a similarly audio enhanced bike could pull us behind the bike on those metal roller skates. Road rash was just a fact of life.

Only later did I learn how many (now) valuable baseball cards I ruined in the quest for motorcycle sound on my bikes.

Other than a bit of healing time in the winter, I pretty much had full time scabs on my knees as a kid. All gravel roads in our town.

We too did the playing card/clothes pin thing. We was cool.
