  1. So long radio... hello T.V!!! It's amazing how much information/images got captured and put on T.V. With the radio, you listened and it was your own imagination that developed images. With the T.V you just watched. Now look at us!

  2. That still amazes me! I have heard that people listening to the radio thought that Nixon had won. Say what we want, but looks and poise certainly have something to do with the way we view others.
