I do remember that now.

I also recall not so fondly that you got hot drinks and a scolding when you or your siblings didn't fill up the ice trays. We were one of the first in our neighborhood to get a fridge with an automatic ice maker. I thought I died and went to heaven.

I bet my kids would think that ice trays are some kind of freaky Lego block if I showed them one.

My brother and I were assigned the task of turning the big outside antenna. We had a pipe wrench outside for a better grip on the pipe... which we also climbed when we wanted to get on the roof.

We were also assigned to WHACK the TV cabinet when the "picture went bad".

Wow! Haven't seen a test pattern in years. My dad used to repair TV 's in the small town where we lived. Even built his own osiilscope from a kit to use on them.

That was me. My parents had only bunny ears back in the 70's. It was not until the late 90's that they decided to get cable. My parents just did not believe in paying for TV. lol. That is how I feel about radio. lol. How times change. Our kids will think nothing of spending $50 to $60 a month on radio.
