"Come fly with me, Alison Steele, the Nightbird @ WNEWfm (NY),

As a born & bred (& late night partying) New Yorker, I remember Alison Steele & her program very very well.

Yup. She used to come on at 10pm. I would lay on the bed and listen to her opening, then drift off listening to all the cool stuff.
What an era! (Oh, and it always reminded me of that movie The Fog)

The licorice really tiny candy breath mints that could take your head off.
Why do I think they were called something like Specs or Pezz or Fezz or something.

I saw these in Walmart Kauai when there a month ago. But they were orange and black colors like for Halloween. We love those cookies but just when I went to buy them, I remembered the bathing suits in my suitcase Oh and FlixStix

You're thinking of "Sen Sen"! Still being made - just do a websearch for it. A number of companies still carry it. Believe it or not, I just recently ran out of a box full of the little packets that I bought a few years ago from "The Vermont Country Store".

LOVE "Sen Sen"! A strong "perfumy" licorice taste/scent. One or two 1/16" squares can cut through anything you've eaten - even tons of garlic (which I also LOVE).

Are they available where you live? Can I send you finances? Not real good at subtle hints, but I'd love a little tin of those

I think I may have seen the large tootsie roll candy at the Dollar Stores near movie theaters.
I live in the northeastern U.S.
The little red hen is my all time favorite Little Golden Book, bar none.
