Johnny Quest had some great big band Afrocentric music. Some hot stuff!

Sea Hunt, man, do I remember Sea Hunt!

Richard Diamond, Boston Blackie, Peter Gunn... all great detective shows.

And "Out of the blue of the western sky, it's... Sky King!"

I still think the Cessna 310 is a great looking airplane!

As a kid I was in charge of fixing TV's in our house. I learned to read the tube diagrams. I'd pull the tubes, put them in a shoebox, each one carefully wrapped in an old rag. I'd pedal my bike, shoebox of tubes in the basket, down to a little convenience store that had a tube tester. I'd test the tubes, buy new ones if necessary, pedal back home, reinstall the tubes, and hopefully, the TV would fire up and work. I was all of, oh, 10 or 11 years old when I learned to do that.
