Cool quiz!

I'll freely confess that I only knew the answer to 1 question: the Henry Bains sauce.

Yay, I feel young! Or slow? Shoot...

I got 70%. Being a Baby Boomer helps, and having worked for the newspapers helped a lot. You'd have to be REALLY old to remember all that stuff, though.

5/10 (1, 2, 3, 5, and 6 correct).

I'm sub-30 and have only lived here during my 20s (transplant by way of Ashland, Danville, and St. Louis), so I had to guess on a few.
