And watching Saturday morning cartoons on an old console B/W in my room sos not to wake anybody up.
A couple of channels stayed on in the wee hours, especially the first local cable channels like ON-TV.
What was with the Indian anyway?!
I think the indian was for fine focus. My father was in Radio in the 60s. They had turn tables and Ginormous boards.. And these 8 track Carts that they used for all the commercials. But in the 60s they did alot of live commercials. I used to love going to watch my dad produce commercials. He would do all these different voices and they would run them slower and then tape them on a real to real .. Thick on too. Then they would put them on those carts. And they had these huge grey electro shock paddles that they would erase the Carts with.
Satuday cartoons... Wow.. We got a Color TV early in life. My dad had to have all the latest stuff. And FM Radio started.. That was like wild fire.
