RE: Early Television

My dad went to 'electronics school' to learn to repair televisions and radios, graduating in 1959-1960. He became a Zenith TV distributor shortly thereafter. One of the first in our rural area of western Illinois. His first 'showroom' was our living room. As a child of 5 years old, I vividly remember numerous people/couples coming to our house for an evening of TV viewing, before they made a decision to purchase their first TV. Of course we had the latest and greatest televisions in our own living room for many years. I too remember when color and remote control debuted. Dad opened his first Zenith store in a larger neighboring town a couple of years later. Then another store in another town. And finally a larger TV and appliance store, with a partner. He did a thriving TV repair business all of those years also. As people began to buy new instead of repairing their TV and the big box stores became too much competition for him to make a living any more, he retired. He is 89 years old, and can hardly understand how to operate a modern TV with too many buttons on the remote, and all of the new 'gadgets' as he calls them.
