    Now I remember what TV show had Paul Revere & the Raiders on as regulars it was Where The Action Is. (I was in bed when I remembered LOL).

    The title song lyrics:

    Oh, baby come on, let me take you where the action is. (3X)
    It's so neat to meet ya baby where the action is.

    In every little town cross the U.S.A.
    There's a spot where the people tangle everyday
    Just leave your problems and get away
    Come down and listen to the guitars play.

    Dance, dance dance when you hear that beat
    Dance, dance dance get up off of your seat
    Dance, dance dance let your back bone slip
    Let's go to the place on the Sunset Strip

    Oh, baby come on, let me take you where the action is. (3X)
    It's so neat to meet ya baby where the action is.

    That guy from Here Come The Brides was Bobby Sherman, unless she went for the off-brands.
    Remember?

    Do ya love me?

    Ala-At the International Spy Museum in DC, there is a whole room of spy toys from the 60's. Mt bro and I had the 007 attache case, but it was red, not blue. I loved looking at that stuff. The one you posted is super groovy. Bond, James Bond. My 007 case totally had that decoder, I bet it was the same one, can't remember the rest of it though.

    Oddly, we weren't allowed to watch Bond movies. Mom nixed them.

    Does anyone remember Honey West? I became her, the summer of 65. I wore a turtleneck sweater with a belt spray-painted gold over the sweater. Turquoise stretch pants underneath. In AUGUST! Mom made me go back to regular clothes for school. That year I think Batman and Robin came out, we played it every recess.

    Betheny,

    yea I remember Honey West, I wanted to be her too, she was cool....how bout her cat, wasn't it an ocelot?..and what about that beauty mark. I fancied myself as a private detective like her, Ann Francis was a beauty with brains, sass and looks too.

    I had the hots for Bobby Shermam, my bedroom door was covered with his pictures. I saw him in the late 90's in a reunion tour, he was still cute as ever. Yea I am a geek. I also was in love with David Cassidy.

    Who recalls the show Now Explosion? It was sort the MTV of the late 60's, we'd watch on Saturdays. We also watched American Bandstand(had a friends sister who danced on the show a few times)

    I wished I had saved all my hip hugger bells and aviators sun glasses, I'd be a groovy, out of sight and far out chic.....yea baby... cuz now they back in style.

    Honey West? OH YEAH, I remember. Anne Francis. Another show my sister insisted on watching. No objections from me. Then of course there was The Man from UNCLE and The Girl from UNCLE. We used to watch those UNCLE shows until one episode showed a girl dancing in a skimpy bikini (I think she had something written across her mid-section). My dad put the kibosh on those shows after that, LOL.

    Anne Francis starred in the 1956 Sci-Fi classic Forbidden Planet.

    I think I would dig that crazy Betheny West.

    My sister liked Bobby Sherman too as well as his brother on Brides. Oddly enough, my sister married a guy that looked a lot like Robert Brown.

    My sister also liked Illya Kuryakin (David Keith McCallum). Damn, she liked every young guy in movies or TV. I thought Illya was the coolest one on the show.

    All these memories of the 60s and no mention of the civil rights movement? Interesting.

    That was so great! My teens relived. I remember those and so much more as if they were yesterday > > >

    ... I remember working to cover shifts the weekend of Woodstock for one of several people from the city swimming pool where I worked as a Lifeguard ... they only got to within 25 miles of Wooodstock but the world was talking about that weekend, then and now!

    ... I remember being on a canoe trip through Algonquin Park with 8 year olds. I was a counsellor at Taylor Statten Camps in the Park and the night they landed on the moon we all sat on the shore of a remote lake and looked at the clearest night sky, amazing set of stars like none I had ever seen and a magnificent moon ... and we all talked about the fact that somebody was walking on the moon!

    ... and so many more good and bad things ... the War in Vietnam, geography class was where I was when they annouced President Kennedy had been killed, Yorkville in Toronto (our Haight-Ashbury in Canada for the 60's) .. there are so many thoughts going through my head!

    "Thanks for the memories!" as Bob Hope always said!

    Well.....talk about it. Wasnt a big deal to me. 1st grade, I had 2 black kids in my class. So what...they lived right down the road from me. Played sports with them, and shared bikes with each other(whoever had air in their tires that day)...lots of flats from the "off-road" trails.....

    TR in defense of the posters, most of us were only between the ages 1-13. Not something you would think about at that age, or pay attention, at least not moi. We're talking about memories not what was learned after the fact. I do have a vague memory of seeing riots on tv and the protest at Kent state. But shucks, I was only 12 in 68 and boys and music were on my mind, along with hoola-hooping, roller skating and wanting to be a cheerleader, which I never made to try-outs. 12 might seem more mature today but there was no cable tv back then. There was no 24/7 news to remind you of world affairs, only what you caught on the world news at 6:00 and 6:30. I remember getting upset with my dad because I wanted to watch popeye and he wanted the news. I guess we were priveledge, we had 2 tv's.
