Better TV programs aired in the 1960s

| December 2008

I grew up in the 1960s, and we had a black-and-white TV. It had rabbit ears on top that constantly had to be adjusted for good reception.

Family members would take turns getting up to change the channel or adjust the sound. We only had three channels to choose from, but even with this limitation, it seemed there was always something interesting to watch.

We’d gather around the TV after the dishes were washed and our homework was done.

Mom and Dad watched the news, then we children watched shows that were on from 7 until 8:30 in the evening. After that, we had to get ready for bed.

The TV wasn’t on during the day, except on Saturday mornings, when we children watched cartoons.

After school, we watched a local program called The Captain Jinks Show.
