i was born 1956 in San Francisco ca. i want to talk about television, the first one i remember was a big box with doors on it, to big knobs that filled my little hands and tuned with a clunk. 2,4,5,7,that was it.
Dad passed away in 1967 it was just mom and me times were hard for us but in July of 69 my mom spent 75 dollars on a used 25 in b&w to watch the lunar landing, it meant that much to her,
A year later we got cable with 25 channels! to day i have a dish 500 channels and my mom who's 85. when i tell my kids this story they look at me as if i were nuts, but in the same turn i can't imagine sitting around the radio
