It’s time for another installment in my 3 Things series.
Here’s the list so far. I started with the year 1965, because that’s the first year I can remember 3 things about.
Other than starting the 9th grade, here are 3 things I remember about 1974.
1) My sister was in her last year of graduate school at Vanderbilt, in Nashville, TN. I remember visiting with my mom. A few years later, I would follow her to graduate school at Vanderbilt.
2) I remember buying David Bowie’s Diamond Dogs LP and listening to it over and over and over. I’m not a huge Bowie fan, but that record was great then, and it’s great now.
3) I remember seeing all the Watergate coverage on the news. It was a different time then, with no internet and only a few television channels. We weren’t bombarded by information all day long, so we actually looked forward to the evening news. I haven’t watched the evening news in close to a decade.
Is there anyone else around old enough to remember 1974? If so, what do you remember the most?
