TV Guide
TV Guide
Remember when there were only a handful of TV channels? I enjoyed doing the TV Guide crossword
puzzle every week. And remember when there used to be Premiere Week every September? The
special issue covered all the new shows and the season premieres of returning shows.

Casper Citron! There's a name I haven't heard for ages. Whatever his show was it was too adult for this wee tyke to care about. He was on radio too. Probably similar to radio's The Barry Gray Show back then.

Kup I vaguely recall -- can't forget a name like that -- but remember nothing.

Bob Matthews: When I was a kid I thought "To Be Announced" was the name of a television show. I often wondered why it aired on so many different stations.

I loved TV Guide. Remember "Kup's Show" and "Casper Citron"? In later years, I used to do the crossword puzzle - it was so easy. I always tried to complete the puzzle by doing only the "downs". The clue I remember best was "He's Hawkeye".

The TV Guide week went from Saturday to Friday. A TV Guide day began at 6:00 AM. It would consider today's 4:30 AM news as being with the day before.

Remember the frustration of looking up this or that favorite upcoming show and the only description was "To be announced"?

When our copy arrived...I'd call, "first dibs" on the crossword puzzle.
