    Beth can remember doing that too.


    She did get hopelessly confused though whenever her dad would ask her to adjust the rabbit ears.

    In 1960 we had a TV with a remote but it was hard wired to the TV.
    There was a little motor connected to the channel changer and volume control.
    When u pressed the button to change the channels you could see the knob turning and clicking thru each channel.
    Ahh, the good old pre digital days. Thank god they are gone!

    I still sing the brylcreem song to my son when I comb his hair after a bath. I wonder if they still sell this stuff? I'd like "disturbingly healthy hair" ... again

    My Mother God bless her worked for RCA for almost 30 years. They helped put a man on the Moon. Now RCA couldn't make a tv worth putting in your living room

    I am pissed that every video has 30 seconds of shit at the start. Now it almost even, the commercials and the actual content. :grouch:
