Queen For a Day – a TV show from 1958

This was fun to watch.  I remember watching it as a child, either before I started school or maybe on sick days. Seeing the beginning of TV advertising was interesting, especially because advertising was also done during the show as well. People were unaware that TV shows had a higher purpose than the show itself and that the money that came in from the companies that advertise.  But today, I have counted up to 15 commercials thrown the watchers at one time – one of the reasons why I don’t own a TV, and haven’t for most of my adult life. I consider the sound of a TV on hour after hour an intrusion. At least with the internet, I can download and watch a program or movie and then turn it off instead of continuing to sit and watch the best of the worst – but to each it’s own. We make our own choices.
