Just been doing some on line research for a Radio programme about things from when we were young
I came up with some great things that I had forgotten about.

Does everyone remember

Mojo´s, refreshers, Caramac bars, midget gems, flying saucers, penny bags.

Hogans Heros, Starsky and Hutch, The A team, MASH, Bonanza, Zorro, Blue Peter, Crackajack, John cravens news round, etc

What about.... flared trousers and teddy boy suits....mods and rockers....Choppers and grifters...the list is endless,

What do you remember from your youth , that you dont see these days??

the Bay city rollers, the Osmonds, pogo sticks, space hoppers and platform shoes.
fruit salads and black jacks.
hugr flairs and huge collars, the multi coloured swap shop on saturday morings, and the saturday club at the cinema.
And long hot summers spent at the open air pool.
