OH: I grew up right after the Second World War. We grew up poor and we were very lucky, I guess, to eventually have a TV in the home, and that made quite a change for us all, just having a television in the home. We were in there watching Tom Mix or Roy Rogers or Lassie or some of those other shows at the time.
