Bowing Down To Wil

All hail Wil Wheaton for providing today’s trip down memory lane.

For Wil, it was seeing the old CBS Special Presentation logo that signaled to all kids that maybe, a prime time cartoon was coming on the air. (Think, “A Charlie Brown Christmas)

But, after watching Wil’s provided video; I stumbled upon my own “chill bumps” TV station logo identification.

When I was a teenager, I lived in a town that for a long time had no cable TV. Imagine that? No Cable; only Broadcast channels. And…AND..only 3, count them, THREE of those stations; CBS, NBC and PBS. Sometimes, on a clear day or a freaky cloudy day, our ChannelMaster Antennae would pick up a fuzzy ABC channel.

So, whenever we went to my brother’s house in Columbus, MS–I was in heaven, because I could watch WTBS Superstation(It used to only show old movies and sports), WGN Chicago, and one great station that showed Hollywood movies on TV before anyone else, great music videos, and little short films. They called it Home Box Office(HBO).

How cool was that?
