Things we will have to explain to our kids

Remember when you were a teenager and had to call the house "land line" to talk to a friend and often had to go through a parent first? That's something our kids will never experience... along with having to memorize your friend's phone numbers! Listen to the Morning MIX and the list of things they came up with.

  • No overnight TV! Television stations used to sign off for the night, leaving us with a 'test pattern' to look at, and nothing more. Photo courtesy 1950's Unlimited

  • TV's that didn't have remotes! You had to physically get up and turn the knobs (one for VHF and one for UHF!!) to change the channel. Photo courtesy jray0001 on Flikr
