I was born on Oct 4th 1961 in Cincinnati. I have always loved radio and I love classic TV. I'm married and I have an Akita and German Shepard, two cockatiels and a pot belly pig.

1971- The comedy variety show The Sonny and Cher comedy hour debuted
1979- Good Times last aired on CBS
1981- MTV was launched as the world's first video music cable channel. Viacom who now owns MTV along with many other cable channels such as TV (B)Land, CMT, NIickelodeon has done a POOR job for it's viewers in my opinion! Classic TV lovers were abandoned by TV Land when they decided to start airing non-classics like Everybody loves Raymond and many others I don't care to even mention! Classic TV fans do now have an option as the classics are making a comeback with fairly new start up networks like ME TV, Antenna TV, Retro TV and others!
