I remember when we got our second TV and the old console TV with dials went downstairs for us kids. We then had two things you could watch in the house haha.
And the kids were the remote. Voice activated. "Bill, change the channel"
 
Lol. I'm the oldest of six kids and the son of a TV & Radio repairman. You'd think we'd have the best TV on the block. Think again. Often times we'd have two TV's. One with audio, the other with video. He didn't have time to repair ours. Lol. Bought my own TV at a garage sale when I was about 14. Put it in my room so I could watch what I wanted. Had to kick my siblings out because it was usually the only one working.

Voice activated. LMAO. I just smacked the youngest one and said, "Change the channel!" It was my TV.

Often times certain channels wouldn't come in clear. Not even tin foil on the rabbit ears would work but if I touched the rabbit ears it was fine. Guess who had to stand there and hold antenna while older sister watched favorite shows.:rolleyes:

Oh yeah, we did that to the youngest too. We'd make him hold his arms out in weird positions....And when he tried to lean over and watch the show, we'd yell at him, even though it was fine. Lol.
 
When SNL was worth watching. Good times!
It was incredible. I miss them all. Gilda Radner was hysterically funny at times.
