Oh my, does that bring back some memories. I remember all of those things and so much more. Anyone remember wearing t-shirts with dinner jackets over the top with the sleeves pushed up? Or the guy that sang the Dr. Pepper jinggle? "I'm a pepper, he's a pepper, she's a pepper, wouldn't ya like to be a pepper too?"
