I Remember….Westerns

   Posted by: John    in I Remember...

One of the things we did not have when I was a young child was a working TV set.  There was a monster console Zenith that sat in the living room for years but it did not work.  Basically, it was a nice cabinet to put things on.

Every couple years we would visit my Grandparents in southern California.  They had a working 25 inch color TV that I thought was just fascinating, and it could get about 10 channels.  All kinds of shows.

In the evening, Dad and Grandpa would often sit down and watch a movie that was playing, usually a western.  John Wayne, Randolph Scott, Clint Eastwood…one of the channels would play them.

When we did finally get a TV that worked, and we would get a whole 4 or 5 channels, the westerns would be on.  One of the Portland TV stations would have them on all the time.  I don’t remember which ones, but there have been many made.  These are kind of fond memories, and while I did not really watch them myself, there’s something about a 1950’s western that is a lot more wholesome than so much of the garbage made today.

I guess that’s why I am trying to collect and watch a few of them.
