Just a quick welcome to everyone who has found this blog. I started it because of my love for old time TV and my dislike for what passes as television today.
When it comes to TV, I'm a product of my time. Quickly, I grew up in the 60's and 70's living in the NY Metro area and my love for TV was immediate and has stayed with me to this day. Seven channels and everything was on! WCBS-TV Channel 2, WNBC-TV Channel 4, WNEW-TV Channel 5, WABC-TV Channel 7, WOR-TV Channel 9, WPIX-TV Channel 11 and WNET-TV Channel 13.
More to the point of this blog is my love and adoration of the movies that appeared on the above mentioned channels and the movie showcases that presented them. Remember THE LATE SHOW on channel 2? THE 4:30 MOVIE on channel 7? FRIGHT NIGHT on channel 9? Well, you get the picture. Those days may be gone and it's a shame but they are not forgotten. That is what this blog will celebrate. As time goes on, I'll post about various movie showcase programs from that era and the movies I saw on them and remember to this day. Hopefully, as I learn the ropes, I'll post some videos and pictures as the days pass. I hope everyone who remembers will comment and although this blog celebrates stations from the NY Metro area, I'll always welcome those folks who have similar memories from whatever part of the country you are from. Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy.
