“Thanks to the grace of God, I took a lickin’ and kept on tickin’ until April 21, 2012.” When you hear my name, you probably recall the old me. You see, I’ve led two separate lives.

Baby Boomers Invented Reality Television In The 1970s

Posted on October 14th, 2013 in 1970s,Celebrities,Gay Issues & Celebrities,Pop Culture,Television by Terry Hamburg

Reality Televison. So contemporary. So 21st century. So wrong. Let’s return to ancient baby boomer times: A.D. 1973. A reality show used to mean National Geographic. Everyone thinks the pop culture genre was invented around 2000. It was re-invented. A daring series hit television in 1973: an out-the box idea to do live running footageRead the Rest…

Baby Boomer Celebrity: Who Am I?

Posted on October 4th, 2013 in 1970s,1980s,Celebrities,Me Generation,Pop Culture by Terry Hamburg

  I was one natty, cool dude, dude. I rose like a meteorite in the auto industry by developing models baby boomers craved. First was the wildly popular Pontiac GTO. Next came the Firebird, soon outselling the Camero. And then the Grand Prix, the most successful new car in 1969 that blew luxury competition outRead the Rest…

I produced The Dating Game and The Newlywed Game – colossal baby boomer TV hits of the 1960s and 70s. My name appeared in the credits but no one recognized me walking down the street. I stepped in front of the camera in 1976 to host my latest creation, which was way ahead of itsRead the Rest…

Baby Boomer Life Up In Smoke

Posted on September 23rd, 2013 in 1950s,1960s,Fads & Toys by Terry Hamburg

    I started smoking regularly—a pack a day—at the tender baby boomer age of fifteen, no longer sneaking as I had in my pubescent days. “Too young,” my parents declared.
