Sounds like you guys were those stoooopid noisy boys (she says with a voice of a 7 year old girl). To be really cool you needed a pinwheel and streamers on the handlebars

You are young, we listened to the Dr. while picketing an entry point at the packing house, while on strike. First time I ever saw a .32 cal chrome plated revolver. Scary.

Dick Biondi is still on the air on weekend mornings on WLS-FM, and this is the radio I listened to him during my misspent youth. Edit tried to add a picture of an old 60s Mitsubishi transistor radio and it didn't take .
