My Dad worked in Television when I was young. We lived in Cincinnati Ohio when I was about five years old. Don't really remember watching much television, my brother's and I would Play outside. Most folks can remember having a television and watching it all the time. For me the first time I really remember watching it is about the age of thirteen. At that time we lived in Rochester New York, I was in the seventh grade. back then there was no middle schools, so I was going to high school. In the 1960's Television really took off, Most people by that time, could afford a television. My Dad was once again was working in Television. Shows were starting to emerge that were family friendly. Like, The Dick Van Dyke Show, The Andy Griffin Show, The Avengers, Flipper, Get Smart, Gilligan's Island, Gomer Pyle U.S.M.C, and many more. The networks were flooded. Television came on at about 9 am and went off about 11pm. No 24 hour television like today.
