    music, movies, broadcasting and buildings..... my life is so interesting
  1. Channel 1 was either a Reserved For Future Use graphic (but never was used) or static. John Lander used to say they were on TV channel 1 during the morning show (Wave to everyone watching) but they weren't.
  2. We got Storer Cable at our house in 1981 had it until 1985. This was the box we had. Still remember what it felt like to use it and turn that dial on the right to fine tune the channel. Storer must have served southeast Houston because we had it in Overbrook. I have family from my mom and dad's side on a small block of houses on Super Street in 2nd Ward and they all had Storer Cable. I can still remember my aunt yelling at my cousin for sliding that dial too fast across the box, I got it trouble for that too.
  3. The front of Katz's is the original facade. The rest of the building is new construction. I remember when the building was gutted for the coming 'M Bar', the side and back walls were removed and the front was shored up.
  4. I've wondered about this as well. I saw Mike McGuff's response to someone on Facebook that said Dave wasn't retiring. I think he will land somewhere else. My suspicion is KPRC because 13's former long time news director is over there now. Eyewitness News is not what it used to be, maybe Dave realizes this.
  5. no actually it wasn't VH1, it was a local low power video channel that went under the calls K05HU with the moniker "TV5" then later "Hit Video USA". VH1 had already signed on in early '85, K05HU went on air in July. Hit Video attempted to go national on cable but it never panned out as they hoped.
  6. The old Del Taco on Edgebrook is now Marcos Seafood & Oyster Bar, the facade has been altered some, mostly the upper portion of the building
  7. I remember that one on Fondren because I used to pass by it on the way to my girlfriends house off of Gessner. They used to go there a lot, her dad hung out there quite a bit too.
  8. Another post here had it listed at 917 Edgebrook Not sure if this is the original building with altered facade but here it it https://goo.gl/maps/tb2iKzZJ8qF2
  9. could be looking at the wrong building but I know it was around there, it sat abandoned for quite a few years
  10. S Braeswood & Hillcroft (became a Shipleys) Edgebrook near Theta (closed for a long time, now a Mexican restaurant)
  11. They were still around in 86. Had a friend in high school that worked there. Didn't know which location though
  12. Was not aware of that Purple, wow!
  13. Wow I totally forgot about those places on Telephone. I was just a kid in the 70s. I remember passing by those adult places along that stretch before and just passed 610, on the way to see family, that was our usual route. I do remember my mom circling the buildings there at Telephone & Lancaster one night, looking for my dads car. She found it. My dad gave her plenty of reasons not to trust him (they divorced in 86). I had forgotten about all of that.
  14. I have an antenna on the roof that can pull in up to 65 miles. Glad you liked our burgers Purple!
