Clue/Question:  She loved all of Jagger’s music, so she made a – – –

Answer:  MICKS TAPE

(A fine homophonic pun!  And, the answer to the hidden/implied question is “Dancing In The Street”.  Of course, it was a remake of the Martha and the Vandellas 1964 classic.  Other bands have also covered it over the years.  I don’t think that Bowie and Jagger voices necessarily blended all that well, but they were both at the top of their games at the time.

All familiar old clue words today.  Although, we do have a couple of new jumbles, in “grauti” and “mteenc”.  I was able to see them all right away.  The answer letter layout was a fine nine letter jumble.  It didn’t give anything away.  And, I can see some folks struggling to come up with the final answer.

Great cartoon of what looks like a college dorm room.  Rock star poster on the wall.  Remember milk crates as furniture?  Great for storing record albums and such.  And of course, the boom box for playing your mix tapes, or pre-recorded tapes, or just the radio.  My college days were actually 1975 – 1979.  Life seemed so much simpler back in the 70s and 80s.  Technology didn’t go “obsolete” in just a few months, like it seems to today.  Oh, well.  I guess I’m just getting old!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    My college years were 75-80. I managed to heist a gen-u-wine milk crate for my LPs. I also have a watermelon crate to store LPs, I actually still have it. But I do see commercial storage crates which are just like the old milk crates. Sterlite makes them, and now that it’s college time again, you see more of them in the stores. Every time I see one, I think ‘Milk Crate’! 😀 😀
