Re: Whatever happened to...?

Hog1 you had 5 channels! We only had 3! LOL My boys think I grew up in stone age. One asked me years ago if I had any Mantle baseball
cards. Told him I did, but they would up between spokes of my bicycle.

dmek, plus we could only order a hamburger or cheeseburger. It was big news when McDonalds introduced the Big Mac.

We had the antenna thing as well.
It was equipped with an electric motor that rotated the antenna to the desired direction of the station to get the best reception. Only problem, in Maryland in the winter, it froze up occasionally. You had to go outside and bang on the shaft to free it up.

PLEASE don't ANYONE post a current pic but, back in the day, WHO did not have "the" poster of................Farrah?????????

Farrah was my angel. Got to be one of best posters ever. Curious to see if anyone
says they didn't have her poster.

Thanks...that brings back some memories.

I still hit the side of the TV. All it does is make me feel better.

Re: Whatever happened to...?

Who remembers watching that late night scrambled "porn" on WDCA Channel 20? "I think I saw a nipple!!!"

C'mon don't act like you didn't do that in between visits to your Commodore 64

Scrambled porn? That would have been "Super TV" which was broadcast over some UHF channel but it wasn't 20. You needed a decoder box and I think it was on channel 50 before there was the current channel 50.

Update: Wiki has the answer.

Re: Whatever happened to...?

Oh man! My childhood has finally returned to me! Man...do I miss the late 70's/80's! Ultraman, Schoolhouse Rock, Punky Brewster (yes she is very hot now,) Night Court, etc.....

Kind of reminds me of that time machine thread i posted several months ago. This type of stuff is what I'd like to go back for!
