OMG I loved that show! Wish they'd bring back the good shows like that again. Also Green Acres, Beverly Hillbillies and Laugh-in. The kind where you don't need to really think, just sit and laugh.

I was checking out at a store today and the mindless doofus at check out asked me for my phone number. I told him it was BR-549. His blank, mindless, quisling stare was priceless.

Isn't the T behind Junior a 16 going by the headlights? Its hard to believe Hee-Haw is over 40 years old. Man how time flies.

Is Amos and Andy on any of the other satellite TV services? I hadn't found it yet.

Paul :-) I usually tell then Michael2-6251 it's fun to watch the wheels turn because they don't want to admit they have no clue!

GR, to be completely correct, that number is written: MIchael2-6251. My childhood number was CEdar5-2721--it's still my brother's phone number too! (he bought the family biz)

When my father started his business in Seattle his 1st phone number was 72, later they added 50 which was the location so the number became 5072, then later they added a name for the location, Main 5072, years later they added the sub number, and the number became Main 3-5072. He held this number until retirement and selling the business to his oldest son. Hi son held this number until his retirement and selling the business some 20 years ago. So the phone number started in the early 20's and remained mostly the same for nearly 100 years.

When the phone company added names to the numbers, the names designated the neighborhoods around Seattle. Main designating central Seattle.

just sayin,

A lot of these shows are on Netflicks, Hulu and Youtube. Also there's a few retro stations like MeTV. #43 on Direct TV. Been watching The Adventures of Superman on there. Great fun. Plenty of other older shows on there too.

Just in case some of you aren't familiar with the "word numbers" the first two letters are the prefix numbers; ie: CEdar5-2721 becomes 235-2721, but when I was a kid we only had to dial the 4 numbers, then the 5 numbers, as any other prefix number was long-distance and went through the local operator exchange (a building downtown). Almost every town had an operator exchange.
My brother's number has only changed by the area code, 916 mostly become 530. It used to cover almost all of Northern California. When the split it, Sacramento kept the 916, everyone else had to change. I still think it should have been the other way around!
