Remember These???

I watched it until it went off in the 80s. I think they even changed the name to "Good Morning Captain".
I wouldn't be surprised. Come to think og it I do have a few memoris of it in color so I must have seen it now and then in the 70s on my grandmother's color TV.
 
I don't drink coffee, but it's been so long since I've heard these names, that i forgot they even exist.

I haven't had coffee in other 20-25 years, mostly because I prefer a good cup of tea in the Winter. I remember the Sanka and Folgers, but don't know if the supermarkets around here still carry them. Maxwell House is definitely still on the shelf.

Edited to Add: OK, I just checked their website, and they also carry Sanka and Folgers, but whether the local store here carries those 2, I don't know for sure.
 
For the record, no, I wasn't drinking beer back then. Although, I think my sister or brother gave me a hit of wine once. But, do you remember when you had to use a can opener to open a beer can?

I remember the can opener. IIRC, back in the day we used one like that to open soda cans too.
 
Remember when these were considered top of the line high tech? I've had one each, except the fax machine. I had to go to kinko's for that.

Actually, the can openers like that are still around. I had one in my hands not more than three years ago.
Yup. THey are still around. We sell them at the store I work at. I think their most common use for our customers is on the big cans of juice.
 
Saw this and it brought back memories! My brother used to play the trumpet in school. We had to buy used instruments in a local pawn shop.

A couple of years later, I moved up from a recorder to a Clarinet.

I was in a live chat on YouTube and one of the participants reminded me of something. Remember when you could pick the phone (landline) and dial for the time? Or when you were a kid, if you were up past ten, your tv flashed this message:

I do remember calling for time and temp. Never was watching TV late enough for the message you are showing. It was likely there though.

A lot of stations just went to static. These days, it seems all of them are 24/7. Many with informercials all through the wee hours.

In my state, they all signed off. Sometimes they would show a test pattern. I found out later that this was to help the cameras white balance. The colorbars came along when tv went to color.

Anybody remember your first tv set? Remember when you had to actually get up to change the channel? Speaking of channels, there was a second dial on most tv sets. It was called the UHF dial. It was a second dial on your tv that you had to use to get the higher frequency stations, like around here it was channel 28. The Regular usually went all the way up to 13, then had a "U" or "UF" on it. Then you would twist the second dial until your channel came in.

@eclark1894 Yep, I remember it well. As a college class (Microwave Theory) project, I designed and built a channel specific antenna (channel 36). Aced the project with an ugly entry (coat hanger pieces stapled on a 1" X 1" piece of wood).

I don't know where my head was. It's not likely that the station just went to static as that would most likely be a violation of FCC rules and regulations. Stations are licensed to broadcast during specific hours of the day, particularly radio stations. However, if a station DOES go to static, it's most likely doing some transmitter maintenance. I know all this because I studied broadcast communications in college. I even had to do some transmitter maintenance with out school's station engineer.
