    they play old tv shows but they base them on a "this day in history" type setting

    they also have a show called "Decades" that's new (mon-fri) where they talk about and show tv, movie, news clips about shit that was happening this day in history from 'decades' past

    The Rockford Files is an American television drama series starring James Garner that aired on the NBC network between September 13, 1974, and January 10, 1980, and has remained in syndication to the present day. Garner portrays Los Angeles-based private investigator Jim Rockford with Noah Beery, Jr., in the supporting role of his father, a retired truck driver nicknamed "Rocky".

    The show was created by Roy Huggins and Stephen J. Cannell. Huggins created the television show Maverick (1957–1962), which starred Garner, and he wanted to recapture that magic in a "modern day" detective setting. He teamed with Cannell, who had written for Jack Webb productions such as Adam-12 and Chase (1973–1974, NBC), to create The Rockford Files.

    The show was credited as "A Public Arts/Roy Huggins Production" along with Cherokee Productions in association with Universal Television. Cherokee was owned by Garner, with partners Meta Rosenberg and Juanita Bartlett, who doubled as story editor during most of The Rockford Files run.

    The series theme music by composers Mike Post and Pete Carpenter was released as a single and went to #10 on the Billboard Hot 100, remaining on the chart for 16 weeks. and won a Grammy Award for Best Instrumental Arrangement for 1975.[1][2][3]

    In 2002, The Rockford Files was ranked #39 on TV Guide's 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time.[4]

    Relax, Oaty. I wasn't putting you down. I'm just referring to broadcast tv channels with programs of only retrospectives and old reruns.

    sorry. people have been calling me old in message boards since i was in my mid 30s mostly over at SFN and it wasn't in a "good way" either. they just had no better "come back"

    i think it was my paul lynde av

    but, i am touchy now about it since by my standards i'm approaching "old" i'll hit the big five oh in a few years

    but since you put it that way, it's all good

    i also have a pretty decent memory as far as my "growing up" years

    paul lynde was the center square (my parents watched the Hollywood squares) and he had his own show for a season

    but i always thought he was a riot in bewitched and the munsters (in reruns)
