Hows about Sky King, Fury and Circus Boy? Saturday mornings we had to hurry and help my dad clean the house before we could watch TV. Can't imagine just how clean we got it,we were only 5 or 6 years old.

I remember Sky King and Fury but not Circus unless it was the one I was talking about. Mine were at least 12 years earlier than your memories.

Patch,

Circus Boy had a very young Micky Dolenz in it. One of the Monkee's you do remember that band. I do remember Howdy Doody show. Davey Crockett and one My Friend Flicka.

Yes, I was never a big fan of Star Trek though. When it came out I was busy with too many other things. Starting a business, working a job and raising two young kids.

Patch;

I don't remember Circus Boy either. I do remember Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers with Buster Crabbe.

We both grew up when the radio was our indoor entertainment. Dad limited the amount of radio we could listen too as it was "bad for us." I was about 7 when I saved enough money to buy a crystal radio kit. I built it in a cigar box. I managed a set of head phones from I know not where and low and behold it worked. I spent many nights awake in bed listening to the one station I could get. It was all adult fare at that time of the evening and that is probably why I developed an interest in things that didn't concern other kids my age.

I haven't thought about crystal radios in half a century.

Patch; I never had a crystal set but I was allowed to listen to the Radio between
4:00pm and 5:00pm during the week and until 7:pm on weekends. Something we had in Canada that I don't think you had in the States was up until the early 50s' you had to have a license to own a Radio. That was mainly because the radio was mostly C.B.C and since they were public radio they were subsidised by the Gov. and the license fee. AM Radio and the vaccuum tube that made it possible were invented here in Toronto by a man named Rodger.

I remember that our radio was a wooden table model. My Aunt had a floor model radio with lots of buttons and dials. As I recall ours was hard to tune in but once we had it the sound was good. My wife's grandfather was an engineer who worked with radio transmissions. He was also part of the development team that created the "proximity fuse" that made dropping the Atomic bomb possible. I do not remember what our signal was here but if we would have had to pay for it Dad wouldn't have! I didn't ever take the back off of the radio but I know there were lights you could see through the back panel. I saw one for sale a few weeks ago and thought about it but at $160.00 it was just something else I didn't need.

I go into antique stores now and see things we used in my youth.

Those were the ages of my children when I became their sole caretaker. We had those rules too. The years had their trying moments but I would not trade them for anything on this earth or in the afterlife.

When my children were old enough to help clean we had what I called" Music Appreciation". This is where they took turns choosing what kind of music we had to listen to while cleaning. Micheal Jackson's Thriller was the one my daughter would listen to all the time. My son would just pull out a album didn't matter what it was. By the time the album (both sides) done the place was clean.

Camac and Patch I don't remember listening to radio shows, I guess we had always had a TV.

I don't remember the radio serials. The kids weren't allowed to operate the radio and my parents probably wouldn't "waste time" listening to such. I do remember mom listening to Arthur Godfrey while she did the ironing (back in the days before permanent press). My brother had a crystal set, but he was eight years older than me and wouldn't let me touch it.

My grandparents had a hand crank record player. The records were about a 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick. We got our first record player in 1957 for the family Christmas present. (Mom started back to teaching that year so we could afford a little extra, though not much. Also she won $500.00 in a drawing at the Belks store for Christmas. Big money in those days.) Talk about wonderment. Dad had gotten two records: Oklahoma and a Fred Waring Christmas albumn. We listened to those over and over til the grooves wore out. I still have those two records today even though they are totally unplayable.

I remember laying on the floor in front of the radio with my eyes closed imagining every scene.

We got TV about 1955 though my relatives had it much sooner. I remember going to get it with dad and was it ever heavy. I carried it and was afraid if I dropped it we would never get another. A lot of the old radio shows had moved to TV but there were also many new ones. After everyone had their chores and homework done we could watch two hours. I often did homework for my siblings so we could watch sooner. (I was the oldest.)

It was not long till the novelty wore off and the rules relaxed a bit.

Ahhh the memories.

Just got this email the other day I thought you might find funny, interesting.
It was a piece actually done by Andy Rooney from 60 Minutes about women over 40.

"As I grow in age, I value women over 40 most of all. Here are just a few reasons why:

A woman over 40 will never wake you in the middle of the night and ask, 'What are you thinking?' She doesn't care what you think.

If a woman over 40 doesn't want to watch the game, she doesn't sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do, and it's usually more interesting.

Women over 40 are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course, if you deserve it, they won't hesitate to shoot you if they think they can get away with it.

Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it's like to be unappreciated.

Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 40.

Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 40 is far sexier than her younger counterpart.

Older women are forthright and honest. They'll tell you right off if you are a jerk, if you are acting like one. You don't ever have to wonder where you stand with her.

Yes, we praise women over 40 for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it's not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed, hot woman over 40, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22-year old waitress. Ladies, I apologize.

For all those men who say, 'Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?', here's an update for you. Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage. Why? Because women realize it's not worth buying an entire pig just to get a little sausage!"
