My friend Doug has given me an old '80s television set, with teletext and everything, made by Granada! But will it actually work, given that this 1985 television set remains untested? Will I even experience any of that gorgeous old television static, let alone get to play the Atari 2600 on it and wallow in vintage TV nostalgia?
The suspense will GNAW YOU TO THE BONE - especially if you have fond memories of old school tellies and crave some vintage TV set nostalgia. Be sure to tell me your memories of your favourite television sets from the '80s in comments!
