I was old before my time. I would listen to the Bob Crane show on KNX when I was 6 or 7 and Joe Pyne on KLAC when I was in jr high and high school.

This made me laugh. I will confess that I had a crush on Tom Brokaw when I was a young girl, becoming very interested in the local news. I remember one night, he signed off "For Tom Brokaw, Kelly Lange and.... wait... I'm Tom Brokaw... for Ross Porter, Kelly Lange and myself...goodnight".

The old Moulin Rouge Nightclub, near Sunset and Vine in Hollywood was turned into a teen nightclub "Hullabaloo" in the mid 60's. You had to be 18 to dance there and I wasn't old enough ...

I have a huge box of blue chips and books. Stacks of stamps. Vons used to hand them out, as well as Shell and Signal filling stations (amongst others).
