#1 This was the Turtles, who recently played at the Savannah Center.
#5 I'm pretty sure this was Barbra Streisand.

RW answered #5 as "Babs"

Is that a well know nickname for Barbra Streisand or does it refer to someone else?

I've know a few girls named Barbara who were called Babs. I don't think it's especially mysterious. As far as I know, it's a common nickname.
