Not possible. What is going on. These are my teenage heroes
Almost time for another Top of the Pops clip
But in absence of that and associated fond (private) teenage remembrances here is one of my favourites of theirs

Ghost Town

Seriously one of the coolest and most influential bands of my life

Me, too.

Around the time he was big, I think I knew two things about soccer: the name Pele and an announcer shouting "Goooooooaaaaaallllll!"

The link mentions she got started in the early fifties when half the country still did not yet have a tv set. I started high school in the fall of 1952 so I somewhat recall how the world was then. She (probably in the late fifties) did an extensive interview with a Playboy bunny! Later she interviewed Fidel Castro, Richard Nixon, and many others. I have not made it through all 90 minutes of the clip you posted but I will. It's fascinating. The world has changed. That's a cliche. What to make of it all? That's a good question. But not for the RIP thread. I will be recommending this site to my 30-year-old granddaughter.

I was born in the early 60's, so Barbara Walters has been a fixture on TV news for most of my adult life. I do remember the hooplah when she became the first female co-anchor of a network news program, but it's still hard to imagine all the glass ceilings she had to shatter during her career.
