I was young, but I remember when cable tv was a novelty. And the stations would generally end programming by midnight after the news or late night show.

When my mom was in college, she said her roommate was asleep in bed, and a TV signed off with the national anthem and the girl jumped out of bed and stood to salute during the anthem lol. She thought it was the funniest thing

Those were the good old days. We had a little black and white for years, and finally got a larger color TV and thought it was the best thing ever. Of course this was the 1980s when everyone else had had color for a couple decades lmao

Course it had to "warm up" first.

P.S. That was "contrast" not "contract"

I got pretty good at it. But after a while even this no longer worked, so my dad would take the tubes out of the TV, take them to the store to have them tested on a machine, and since of course they were all bad, get new ones. This worked for a while until the new tubes started to degrade, starting the cycle all over again. There were only three channels, i.e., the major networks. Around the early 1970s independent stations started coming on line.

Something from that time that I found funny even then were the commercials for color TVs showing how great their pictures were. What they forgot was that the picture could only be as good as the TV you were watching it on, which in my house was black & white.

Yep, I remember that too, although we didn’t have a rotating antenna mast.
You had to turn on the TV a few minutes before the program started to give it time to warm up.

I remember going outside to turn the antenna pole. Dad was in the house hollering at mom, and she was hollering at me...

"Turn it left! No, the other left! You just had it, turn it back!! TOO FAR, TURN IT BACK DAMMIT!"
