Compared to today’s satellite, digital, and flat-screen technology, the selling points of TV’s during the 1950s and 1960s seem quaint, colloquial, and even ridiculous. Families coveted the cutting edge of TV technology to impress friends, co-workers, and neighbors. This book walks us through the invention of TV and its subsequent replacement of the radio. On the way, there are comments on programming, TV news, and the cultural shift that occurred during TV’s honeymoon years. As an integral part of the new trend, advertisers bolstered buyer enthusiasm with impressive-sounding features and high-tech terminology. “Celebrates the boxes, consoles, and new-fangled features of a country’s newfound obsessions.”  Full-color illustrations.
