I'm up there in years, myself. TV, however, had channel 2,4,5,7,9,11 and an iffy 13. Somewhere in my pre-teens, I think, "UHF" was made mandatory and the availble tuning range expanded from 2-13 to 2-13+uhf and 14-83 (on a separate dial) when the VHF was set to the UHF selection. It was years before anything actually appeared on UHF. Vertical Hold, Horizontal Hold and fine-tuning

Color TVs were a months pay, for what color there was (both in terms of very few broadcasts and quality). Unless one bought one of the plastic overlays that converted one's B&W into color.

Golden days - when people dressed as MD's were on TV Ads for cigarettes touting their favorite brand.
