Fads of the 60's, 70's and 80's
      #1597956 - 07/09/14 09:42 PM (71.254.116.231)

I thought I would write a blog story about the fads of the 60's, 70's and 80's as I remember them. Figured I could Google them to see what they said were the fads, but then I thought ..... who better would know the fads of these three eras than the people on this great board. Any thing you can remember? One of the things I remember the best was the mood ring that my friend josh Reynolds developed in the mid-1970s. You have to remember them. Can you help me out with your own memories. Thanks, Larry

Hot pants were the in fashion style for ladies featured in lots of bright colors. High style fashion boots were very popular as well. Bell bottom pants for men and women and shoes with a slight heel for men; also plaids were popular during this time.

Liesure Suits! Campus protests, "stick it to the man", Polynesian restaurants, DC-7 and Lockheed Constellation prop airliners, FM radio slowly beginning to challange AM stations, TV networks (NBC, CBS, and the "upstart" ABC) shifting their black and white programming to the newfangled "compatible color", creation of PBS, Crocket's Victory Garden, rotary dial telephones shifting to touch tone, creation of Area Codes so you could dial your own long distance phone calls, creation of the transistor, first transistor shirt pocket AM radios, cars appearing with four headlights instead of just two...
