You guys are kids. I listened to radio before rock an roll and we used to sit around every night to stories of the Shadow,Amos and Andy and others. My first car was a used 1950 Chevy. Paid $50 for it and sold it for $50. First new car was a 64 1/2 Mustang. THAT"S OLD.

The B & W tv's we had you always had to adjust the knobs to keep the pic from rolling. We got 2 local channels. We also had a multi-band tube type radio that had a wooden cabinet and was the size of a juke box.

We also had 2 stations, plus another that was very fuzzy.
I think when "Cable" TV started, there were 10 or 12 stations.

Anyone 50 or older have seen a lot of technological and social changes in there lifetime. I still run into some old guys who don't know how to use a computer or a smartphone. They may have a flip phone. There lost in today's world. Everything now is done online with websites and email. No matter how old you are you must adapt to changes in a changing world. One thing I notice about the younger generation they don't save any money, if they want something they buy it now instant gratification. Where us older generations tend to be savers and planners with money.

I remember the first transistor radios. Carrying my radio to the beach and listening to music. Great times.

I remember waking up on winter mornings cold, to the sound of Dad in the basement shaking the "clunkers" out of the coal furnace before adding fresh coal, knowing it was going to get warmer!
