In reply to: Garage Rocker 's message, "Your first color TV set" on 06:09:40 08/29/15 Sat

Our family got our first color set shortly before Christmas, 1975. Like those of you in Dormont getting WTAE was problematic. My father had electronics training from the military and had inherited about 13 black-and-white television sets that were sitting around our basement. He thought he would never have to pay for a television again in his lifetime. (he learned later to his amazement that there was not ONE interchangeable part in those 13 sets).

He broke down and bought a color set because our grandparents, who lived nearby, had gotten one, and we kept pestering them to come over and watch our cartoons and Christmas specials in color. My mom finally forced him to buy one so we'd quit bugging her parents. It was a Sears brand 19 inch, and the very first color show we watched was How The Grinch Stole Christmas.
