So, you're asking yourself... what is this website about?

I Wanna Get That is the culmination of years of gathering really cool, seldom seen information, images, articles, and just plain fun stuff about every year from 1940 through 1979.

Now you can check out the "latest" news, television, radio, fads, fashions, Tonys, Oscars, Nobels, and even music for the year you were born, the year you got married, or whatever year you want you remember. We even added a section about what things cost for each year with the price of gas, milk, bread, homes, cars, the minimum wage, and more.

So, what are you waiting for? Pick a year and see how much you remember (or have forgotten).
