I was kind of wondering if anybody around here was vintage "o), I still have the Lionel Dad got me for my first Christmas, it even has some lead tinsel wrapped around the engine's axles.

Here is a picture of my first Band, Dad took this picture in 1965 at the Skyhook Servicemens Club on Wiesbaden AFB, I was 12, I'm on the left playing the bass.

Vintage I say!

Used to climb on the roof and rotate the antenna, until we got a "Rotator".

We didn't have a roof antenna, we just added more aluminum foil to the rabbit ears.

My grandparents had one of those huge dishes at their farm. We used to change channels just to watch it rotate. We were easily entertained.

we didn't have sat dishes when I was a kid. Only NASA had those, well,,,,and eth Navy. What we had was an old Sears Hi Gain Rural antenna with a reception range of about 150 miles, but to watch a different channel we had to go outside and manually crank it around until somebody inside yelled "OK"

The grandparents had that before. Then they got the sat. dish. They were more high tech than we were at the time. They were even the first in the family to get a microwave. It was HUGE, but it was the first microwave any of us got.

We had CBS, NBC and ABC and if you switched to dial to 0 and the other dial to 17, we had the Turner Network. That's the first place that I ever saw a music video. It was also the only channel that was broadcasting 24 hours a day.
