Pictured here is Debbie Harry, better known as Blondie. The iconic Punk new wave singer founded Blondie and is also considered the first female rapper to chart at number one in the United States because of her work on "Rapture". She’s also had over 60 film roles and numerous television appearances.

The members of Blondie were pioneers of the punk scene but were noted for their eclectic mix of musical styles. They incorporated elements of disco, pop, and reggae. For this, they are credited with introducing mainstream American listeners to alternative elements of Rock and Roll in the late 1970’s. Blondie has sold 40 million records worldwide, is still active, and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006.

Pictured here are Cheryl Ladd and Jaclyn Smith, willing to do whatever it takes to solve each episode’s mystery… including shaking their pompoms in an undercover operation. This particular episode of Charlie’s Angels, titled Pom Pom Angels, aired in November of 1978. In it, three cheerleaders, just up and vanished mysteriously. Even stranger, the coach had been receiving notes from religious fanatics in the days leading up to the disappearances. The notes basically condemned him for objectifying women by putting them on display. So naturally, the Angels slid on those uniforms and put themselves on display! The mission ends up leading to a haircut and a cult where they serve 'The Good One'. Good times!
