@mikeJB You know Mike, and thats a big reason why i don't really vocalize my grievances online is because i feel most chalk it up to bitching about bitching, but you took a stand and I wasn't gonna let you stand alone. I was born in 87 so like you I got to grow up with top 40s till i discovered alternative music, but either way I grew up in the 90s and i remember that in the summer, tv sucked, tv shows would take the summer off and it would be reruns. the only shows on that were new was the news and sports. I also remember after the 10 o clock news is was infomercials till the sun came up. I remember watching Poltergeist for the first time and asking my Dad about the scene where the tv is on and it's playing the national anthem right before it cuts into white noise. I was like, what was that? and he told me that back in the day tv stations would end their broadcast and resume the following day and when they signed off their channel was just white noise.
Also I know this episode well. A Stop At Willoughby, such a good episode. When the its revealed that Willoughby and sons is a funeral home. . . bam the title makes all the sense.
