Description
 
Jeff Kisseloff (au). Re-creates the old-time TV years through more than 300 interviews with those who invented, manufactured, advertised, produced, directed, wrote, & acted in them. Their reminiscences are intertwined with a chronological narrative that tells the technological, bus., & entertainment stories -- from pioneer Philo T. Farnsworth, through the Golden Age of comedy & drama, to FCC chairman Newt Minow’s historic speech declaring TV a “vast wasteland.” Here are household names, from RCA scientists to Uncle Miltie, Edward R. Murrow, & Beaver’s mom. You’ll hear about the great pioneering stations in LA., Chicago, Phila., & NY, & the inside story from the people who fixed the quiz shows.
