    Re: which song gets you thinking about childhood

    Not always, my brother's girlfriend's daughter are into 1980s heavy metal & britpop.

    Luckily some recent jukebox musicals are a good gateway to some artists.

    Re: The Krypton Factor

    I remember a lot of the intelligence puzzles used pentominos. Supposedly these took hours to solve & were cut down to 5 minutes, like the assault course.

    One aspect I liked was how the K turned...

    I don't think Charles Bronson has actually killed anyone, but is still one of the most dangerous criminals in the prison system.

    Re: Your first pair of Levi's

    I remember going to the Levi's shop in Northampton in 1997 & buying some jeans at a discount, which I think I still have but won't be able to fit into.

  20. Re: Earliest Football Season you can recall?

    My brother had the Pannini sticker books for a few years, you could send off for the last so many stickers but only so many could be badges.
  21. Re: Comedy Sketch About Bass Players - Possibly Kenny Everett?

    You are welcome, only recently I was reminded about it.

    I remember the music book didn't have any diagrams for the finger positions to play particular chords.
