  •  I remember the names of a lot of the shows (5+ / 0-)

    mentioned, but I don't remember listening to them. I think I spent all my time outside playing. I remember seeing several on TV. My parents were friends with neighbors in the same apartment building, and they had a TV by 1948. I was born in 1946. By the early '50's my parents had a TV. Didn't anyone watch Howdy Doody? How about the Mickey Mouse Club? When I was 5 or 6, I remember coming home from school and my parents glued to the set watching the McCarthy hearings. And I remember getting a colored TV right around the time I had a tremendous crush on Dr. Kildare. Little did I know that while I was kvelling over his beautiful blue eyes, he was lusting after some man.
