Johnny Romita Sr. offered free drawings for fans in 1997 at a fan convention held at Harding Mall, Nashville TN. I got behind him to video this drawing of the Silver Surfer. He also did a drawing of Spiderman and R2-D2 which was auctioned off for charity.

Lyndon Baines Johnson sets up a superhero league called "The Great Society" to battle evil conservative forces, like Richard Nixon as the "Along Ranger" and Barry Goldwater as "Colonel America". Check out the Kennedy brothers, "Bobman & Teddy". Some things never change. From 1966.
Bobman & Teddy returned in their own comic soon after this one appeared. You can read about it here.

Most radio stations used to give away custom belt buckles, especially in the 1970s. Here's a few from my collection: WLAC Nashville, Radio Luxembourg, WSM Nashville, WQXI Atlanta, and a BTO buckle direct from the record label. You don't want to sit down wearing one of these unless you have no belly. Trust me.

Here's another postcard, this time from Nashville. The Anchor Motel and the Flaming Steer Restarant were next door to each other on West End Avenue. Check out the prices on the Flaming Steer sign. I think this card is from the early 70s. Both places are gone now, replaced by a Hampton Inn.

Here's a postcard from one of my boyhood haunts, the Willingboro Plaza in Willingboro, New Jersey. I bought my first 45 rpm record at the Record Shack, Ted Nugent & the Amboy Dukes "Journey To The Center Of The Mind". The plaza went downhill, but recently was redeveloped as the Willingboro Town Center.
