Considering I work in television, no reader should be surprised I idolized it as a child. I still remember the lineup from when we got cable TV.
Yes, we had MTV on channel 2. My parents forbid me to watch it, thinking music videos somehow meant the end of decent civilization. I would craft my own show schedules and draw new logos for existing shows. Graphics fascinated me. I loved the news, of course, because I was not a normal child. But I probably watched cartoons more than anything. My favorite? Dungeons and Dragons. I had a crush on the red-haired girl.
