‘Tis the season

Always loved this Larry Fritz illustration, which graced the cover of TV Guide for the week of December 24, 1955–exactly 55 years ago today. Back when signals were pulled in from all over on rooftop antennas–for free. Apparently they still work.

Off to Cloverdale to start my shopping. For those of you not wrapping gifts tonight by the Yule log on the “Fireplace Channel” (available 24 hours on Rogers cable 204 in the GTA), here are some holiday TV highlights elsewhere tonight and tomorrow. Merry viewing:
