VictorLaslo asked for a quiz. So here is the first attempt, to see if there is an interest. Question

If there is sufficient interest then we can do more quizzes, and anyone can submit questions or however they want to do the their quiz.

Quiz No 1. I've chosen the 1970s as the subject, so apologies to the very young members. No prizes but you get to see your score Smile

Go to

http://www.r2ok.co.uk/quiz1.htm

I hope all the correct answers ARE correct, I expect there might be some debate Wink

The quiz is created on a common html form style so it should work for everyone Question

Excellent, especially as I did better than I expected (but as well as I should, considering it is my generation). Made me think and exercise the memory bank.

Hah! 65% for me without cheating, not great but ok-ish.
Mind you I altered my answer to the Blondie question to my first thought and got 70% Very Happy
Excellent idea, thanks!

Hey, I'm no expert, I reckon had I seen this quiz last week I would have only scored 50%

I'll put the correct answers on an answers thread later.

The 80's quiz is on it's way, maybe today if you are all so desperate Wink I have the questions and answers, the tricky bit is assembling the quiz page so that the right answers get the score Smile

I will probably fail miserably on the 80's one too if the questions are as difficult as these.
I didn't know any of the answers, the ones I got right were pure guesses. Laughing

I'll probably do quite badly on the '80s. I went off pop in that decade.
