“News highlights of 1972. Presented by the Longines Symphonette Society. “The news, the events, the personalities as they happened as you lived them.”

From Cletus Hunnicutt

1972 was a great year, well for my family anyway, because it was the year that my brother Alex (who won’t go nameless) was born. And what a year to be born in and even on this day being in the middle of the Vietnam War, anti-war movement, Watergate, the 1972 presidential election between George McGovern and Richard Nixon, a year of disaster movies like Skyjacked, The Poseidon Adventure.

Two great movies, Skyjacked with Charlton Heston and many other great actors and The Poseidon Adventure with Gene Hackman and many other great actors as well.

The 1970s was an interesting time to begin with. The whole decade, there didn’t seem to be one slow year in the whole decade. We were either at war, in recession, or going through one political turmoil after another.

So my brother didn’t pick a dull year to be born in and it was a great time to be alive of you really wanted to be living will all the changes in culture with all the great movies and music and sports.

Awful decade as far as the economy and perhaps people’s quality of life. But a great time to be alive, if you could afford it.
