While I was reading through old copies of the Honolulu Advertiser and Honolulu Star-Bulletin I kept coming upon the daily t.v. schedules. Now with many fewer channels, these were nowhere like the complex schedule spreadsheets that one sees today. We only had the three networks, plus PBS, plus KIKU (and there was no way I could understand that channel!).
To make a long story short, I was impressed with the number of shows I recognized and the number of shows I really liked to watch. How about you? What would you be watching on t.v. Thursday night, February 28, 1974?
Here’s the schedule of shows you’d have to choose from:
6:30 The Flip Wilson Show
7:30 Let’s Make a Deal
8:00 Mod Squad
6:30 “Beast of Morocco” (Movie)
6:30 Medical Center
7:30 “Elmer Gantry” (Movie)
Me? I’d choose Medical Center then switch to KHON for Let’s Make a Deal and Mod Squad. Then it would be on to KITV for The Streets of San Francisco at 9:00 p.m.
How about you? What would you be watching?
