@ Insight...And the dial had two; one for UHF and one for VHF. Also I remember when cable first came out and the box was a sliding device like a zipper with a hard wire to the TV where the numbers would light up as you slide the little lever along it and the reason one paid for cable was so one didn't have to have commercials. And there weren't any either. That was great but it didn't last very long.
Jeez and I ain't really that old...least I didn't think so :-/

My son recently asked me... what is a 'station wagon'? owie. my dad had the stereo typical Griswold Family Truckster. The thing was so big it echoed inside!
FP - there still are station wagons, but they've shrunk:

Oh, come on, guys. This is Friday afternoon fun. I will happily claim to be middle class, and I don't think I'm alone.

I was watching (with my 10-year old son) the first Superman movie with Christopher Reeves. Superman steps into a phone booth to change his clothes.
My son asked, "Dad, what did he just step into?"
Me: "It's called a phone booth."
Son: "What's a phone booth?"
Me: "It's where you can make a phone call."
Son: "Why didn't he just use his cell phone?"
Me: (face palm with a grin)
