Bee Gees Fever ---Catch It!


I remember the Bee Gees were popular but wow, I don't remember this much (or frankly any) merchandise out there as a kid. Then again, I doubt I ventured from the Star Wars aisle at all past 1978.

The Bee Gees are a good example of the fickleness of society. They were HUGE - I don't think you could explain to a teenager today how big they were in the late 70s. Then there was a huge backlash against them and they were ridiculed. I guess that's what happens when you are overexposed - Susan Boyle take note.

Wasn't there also a Bee Gees lunchbox? Not a 'Saturday Night Live' box, mind you, an actual Brothers Gibb version.

I like the portable AM/FM radio that looks like it weighs approximately fifteen pounds.

I also don't remember that much Bee Gees stuff being out there, except for the lunchbox. I think I need to add the box to my collection some day. Although the record player looks cool too. I wonder what that goes for these days? I know the KISS record player sells for some big bucks. In some ways, these were kind of like artist-specific i-pods we have today (like U2, etc). Although much cooler.

I don't remember all this stuff and I was a huge Bee Gees fan.

I preferred the poor girl's Bee Gees...The Hudson Brothers! Okay, I confess that I only remember the Hudson Brothers because we saw them perform in the Sacramento Music Circus production of "The Wizard of Oz" one summer. AND I saw them live once at the California State Fair...good times, good times...

My babysitters (sisters) had their entire loft bedroom covered in Bee-Gees posters. Kind of freaked me out actually.

I had a Bee-Gees record player with microphone, but it didn't look like the ones here. I used to pretend I was a DJ. I would play a record, then announce the name of the song and some radio patter and then play another record.

I was a weird kid. Who pretends they're a radio DJ when they're little?

Funny thing is, I had NO idea who the Bee Gees were. I didn't have any of their albums. I loved the microphone, though.
