I remember my dad mentioning watching the DuMont Network as a kid. Oddly when I was in my early 20's and had kindergarten aged sister, I used to mess with her head by saying "In my day, we only had three TV networks...and we we're thankful!"

LOL kindall!

Interesting link, for sure, but that is one of the stuffiest web pages I've seen in a while. "The author" this and "the author" that, and look at that huge "how to view this site" section right at the top! Youch.
