1962 - Missed the "Bay of Pigs", but was around for JFK's assassination, (though I obviously don't remember it), saw (and remember) a lot of the Vietnam war coverage on TV during many, many dinners... remember seeing LBJ, Nixon's Win (w t f), and the thrill of watching the first man on the moon! (Hard to top that one!) Reel to reel tapes, cassette's, vinyl... having to actually get up to change any channel on anything (radio, tv,), playing outdoors for hours and hours, sun up till well after dark, (do kids do this anymore?). Nixon's resignation, Ford's brief stint... Carter (w t f?)... 300 baud modems, BBS's, waiting what seemed like hours for download of a text-based game I could play on my TRS-80 (Radio Shack). Ooh CD's! (they're SO small! How'd they get all that music to fit on there?!)
