THROWBACK THURSDAY


The early 1970's, when KPNX was still KTAR-TV. Producing a weekend newscast. I dressed better during the week.

Quit concentrating on the legs! Dig the pageboy haircut and the love beads. 

Ah, those were the days.

  1. How about that TYPEWRITER?
    As for the legs, well these last months of throwback thursday and travel tuesday
    have revealed that a bit of an exhibitionist must have lurked in the Catalyst.

    1. I was wondering if anyone would notice the typewriter. As for the "exhibitionist" tag, it's hot where I live.

  3. I think someone else asked this before, but did you ever change those shorts?

  4. I was using a manual typewriter during that time. Low tech.

  5. That's the hair all the chicks thought cool in the 70s. Unfortunately, my hair was dark and curly, but at least I still have it, although it isn't dark anymore.

  6. I come for the short shorts. You've got a bit of a Glen Campbell vibe going there.

  7. Very Glen Campbell! Is that a typewriter you are using?

  8. I always wondered what it looked like behind the scenes on those newscasts.
    My son had that same haircut in the late seventies. I think he had those shorts too.

    1. Judy, in Phoenix in the summer, back when anchormen just sat at a desk, they'd frequently come in wearing shorts and a coat, shirt and tie.

  9. I learned on a manual, didn't use an electric until maybe 67' or so. I had a lot of trouble with them because though I 'touch typed', I'd often just rest my fingertip on a key before deciding. I used a lot of white-out. And because of that I hated doing carbon copies.

    1. Me too. I fought fiercely to hang on to my manual when the newsroom converted to electrics. I was used to banging on the keys and that, on the electric, resulted in words like thisssssssssssss.
