Mouth Sounds: How to Whistle, Pop, Click, and Honk Your Way to Social Success Newman 1980 Submitter: We recently stumbled upon this book in our public library stacks and are unsure how this book slipped through a previous weeding project.
1970s Pop Culture Fun
Osmonds and the New Pop Scene
I am sure if you are of a certain age you will identify with some of these “new” pop scene acts. Extra points if you can name everyone on the cover. Although the Osmond brothers are the featured title holder, there are lots of pictures of the early 1970s pop culture crowd. In case you are keeping score, I can name everyone on the cover and in most of the other pictures. However, some of the groups, I have never heard of. (Mike Curb congregation? Rock Flowers ?)
How sad is it that I can name pop stars from the late 60s/early 70s, but can’t remember things like where I put my keys. Too bad we can’t “weed” my brain of some of the more useless knowledge.

TV Superstars Scrapbook
Itfinoski and Lackmann
Of course I snagged this title! Four shows all in one book. I am sure that the title/cover alone would have garnered readers back in the 80s. However even for a kid’s book, then the content is a bit “light.” No really solid bio information or even behind the scenes gossip. Although let’s be honest, the really juicy stuff doesn’t happen to some of these people for another few years.
Like Sands Through the Hourglass…

Rock’s Hidden Persuader: The Truth About Backmasking Peters, Peters, and Merrill 1985 Submitter: I found this blast from the past hanging out in our collection. No one has checked it out for about five years. It’s called Rock’s Hidden Persuaders! It’s
