How many did you get correct? I missed #13.
11/15 right! I never actually watched the Lone Ranger or Red Skeleton, I'm too young for the Beatles debut, and I just plain forgot the Timex one, but I do remember the old ads now.
so if I got them all correct, without even having to think about it, does that make me old?
or just incredibly knowledgeable about useless trivia?

I missed Freddy the Freeloader and Buddy Holly. That should have been ELVIS!
It makes us just old.
