    I remember a lot of trips as a kid when we stayed in motels that had no TV. And when they did, all the channels were different.

    It took my family years to get a color tv then it took years to get cable.

    I recall being the remote control and the one that had to smack the side of TV to keep the Sears Silvertone tuned in…

    I remember the first color TVs. Too much green or too much pink. I didn’t like it until they perfected it some.

    Ha! That was me, too! And I was the only one in the family who could do it right. I tied two yardsticks together so I could reach the TV without getting up, would whack it just right on the side near the top and viola, clear picture.
    Conversely, my grandparents had a TV before we did. Then, when they replaced their B&W with a color, we got the B&W, with three glorious channels! (Well, two glorious, one kind of staticy)

    Sounds exactly like my family, Chess. My g-parents bought themselves a beautiful full cabinet Curtis Mathis and we got our first TX – their BW hand-me-down.

    When I was a kid: black and white TV on a round screen. Te screen was only about 8 or 10 inches and we had to get up and walk across the room to change channels. We had three channels, but only one TV.

    @Allan i remember a quart of milk being 17¢.
    BW 2nd hand TV.
    3 Channels. CBC, Channel 8,and KVOS out of Bellingham. On clear days when the wind was right, we got CHECK TV.
    I was the channel changer.
    Thanks to CBC – I learned that the world may end at 10:00 pm, but in Newfoundland it ends at 10:30.:-)
