This popped up on my social media yesterday: Yes, that is Lynda Carter from the “Wonder Woman” TV show singing and dancing with KISS, who appear to have had a Bob Mackie makeover (which, in fact, they did).

Beginning in the early Sixties, and probably in response to the release of two Barış Manço singles in 1962, western popular music began to exert a significant influence on Turkish young people and their musical tastes.

Futurama) but it’ll do) bar on February 13th a few years ago called “DJ EJ’s Wheels of […]

Occasionally, as events have prompted several among us to despair for our civilization’s future, I have played the Pollyanna by noting that, as bad as things have become, the 1970s were even worse than the present, and yet somehow we survived them. Some have rebuked me for such nonsense. I now give you the final […]
