Time to fold up the rabbit ears for good. As of June 12, 2009, over the air broadcast television is kaput!
I think I was about 12 years old when Mom and Dad bought me a small second-hand black and white T.V. It sat on my dresser all through my teen years. It looked a lot like the one in the picture above.
I spent hours - HOURS - adjusting the antennas - VHF and UHF. I especially enjoyed Monty Python on PBS, WWF wrestling, the classic Saturday Night Live, and all of the old re-runs. Ha - old re-runs! This was 1976! I guess they are ancient re-runs now.
