I remember it well; that a network connection of TV stations from Schenectady, to Philadelphia, to Washington D.C. It was the true beginning of television coverage along the northeast coast. Channel 3, WPTZ, Channel 6, WFIL the Philadelphia Inquirer station, and channel 10, WCAU. Aluminum and primitive aerials began to appear on rooftops all over the area. It would be 3 or 4 years before the Glover family journeyed over to Bond's Electric on Hamilton Avenue and purchased a 10 inch Admiral "Consolette," thanks to my brother Bud's Navy mustering out pay. What a thrill it was! Every afternoon WPTZ ran old "B" westerns on their 1 hour "Frontier Playhouse" program. Saturday nights were set aside for Sid Caeser and Imogene Coca and "Your Show of Shows." Sunday afternoons in the Glover house included a then popular program called "Super Circus." In those very early years of commercial television, programming began around mid day and went off the air before midnight. The non broadcast hours were filled with what we all found was called a "test pattern" which television technicians used to adjust focus, clarity and the complete definition of the many horizontal and vertical lines that were part of the design.
