SOUPY SALES



Sales got his unusual nickname from his family. His older brothers had been nicknamed "Hambone" and "Chicken Bone"; Milton was dubbed "Soup Bone," which was later
shortened to "Soupy." When he became a disc jockey, he began using the stage name
"Soupy Hines." After he became established, it was decided that "Hines" was too close to the Hines soup company, so Soupy chose the surname "Sales," after comedian Chic Sale.



Man I love the old Soupy Sales shows! I am getting the dvd sets for Christmas.
I grew up watching Soupy everyday. There was no Sesame Street for us! Now you might understand why we all turned out a little twisted! Pookie and White Fang were our favorites.
Soupy is my friend on Myspace SEE




THE SUPREMES




The Supremes rose from the poverty of Detroit’s Brewster housing project to become Motown’s most consistent hitmakers and the most popular female group of the Sixties.



The Supremes sang in a polished style that bridged the worlds of pop and soul. Their greatest success came with songs tailor-made for them by Motown’s peerless in-house writing and production team of Brian Holland, Lamont Dozier and Eddie Holland (see “Holland-Dozier-Holland").



Under the watchful eye of Motown founder Berry Gordy, the partnership between the Supremes and Holland-Dozier-Holland yielded an astounding run of Number One hits at mid-decade. In June 1965, they set a record for the most consecutive Number One hits by an American group when “Back in My Arms Again” rose to the top of the Billboard singles chart. The other hits in that streak were “Where Did Our Love Go,” “Baby Love,” “Come See About Me” and “Stop! In the Name of Love.”

TWIGGY!


Twiggy

As a teenager I believe we all spent a tons of hours painting little black "lashes" under our eyes! We absolutely were fascinated by this tiny little model.

Here's a bit from Twiggy's website:


Twiggy was born in north London on September 19th, 1949. She was named "The Face of '66" by the Daily Express. In the mid 60's at 16 years of age, Twiggy became internationally known as the world's first supermodel, her photographic modeling success epitomising the age.

JAMES BOND IS SEAN CONNERY


There never will be a hotter guy to play James Bond than Sean Connery. One of my favorite
things about growing up in the 60's was seeing Sean's James Bond at the theater on Saturday
afternoon matinees.


Everything about Sean was perfectly suited to that role. His face, his voice and those eyes...
He was slightly sinister with a sly humorous sparkle. The movies were action packed and
often corny. Like why didn't the bad guys just shoot him? They always tied him to a bomb or something and of course he always managed to set himself free.... Sir Connery was Bond!
