In Response to It Was A Very Good Year-1945 In Brooklyn NY by BrendanBrat
Hi Brenda, Thank you for your excellent writing and yes you did bring back memories! Although with me it was Frank Sinatra with his two major albums in the fifties, "For Lovers Only" and Swing Easy". In fact I used to dance around our Florida Room to his music!
My Mother was a Brooklyn Girl and went to Erasamus Hall, and even though we were living on Long Island at the time, I was born in Brooklyn Jewish Hospital. Families were families then and ate together at the dinning room or Breakfast Room table.
I remember early TV, and how we all gathered around our TV set. While my Mother loved Arthur Godfrey, while I loved Sid Caesar and Imogene Coca. Of course we all loved Uncle Miltie and especially "I Love Lucy". Remember when she was giving birth?
We tried to bring color to our TV with a filter, but the colors were in strange places, and we soon forgot that idea. There was also radio and I looked forward to the program, "The Shadow" and "The Long Ranger", while my parents loved "The Jack Benny Show" and "Burns and Allen" on Radio and then TV.
Then there was a program "No School Today" which were children's stories. I also loved the TV Programs "Captain Video and his Video Rangers", "Koola, Fran & Olie" and "Howdy Doody".
We had a Dumont Television set at first. Later my partents bought a larger screen with a Zennith,.but it wasn't as stable as our Dumont. I'm sure you remember the Patern, and having to adjust our TV screens as it would loose the vertical and Horizonal position. It seemed to go haywire along with our patience. :-))
Our Records were 78's then, and I used to like the second side more than the more popular side. Then didn't 45's come along, with that plastic adapter in the middle, or did 33 1/3 come inbetween? I'm having a senior moment and thanks again for the memories! Shelby P.S. Remember the needle sticking?
