    FYI long term memory is the last thing lost by Alzheimer's patients.

    Also my oldest memory of pop culture is He-Man.

    He-Man. what a pansy. he can't do anything by himself.

    I got most of the answers, but i was born at the end of the do-wop era.
    And the thread is not racist against Italians, I want to DO-WOP every time I see Sofia Loren.

    Aha! Mike smith from the raiders was a neighbor of mine down here on the coast, he and I used to jam around a little. Everyone knew him as a drummer, but he was also one hell of a pianist. RIP Mikey
