It’s the 1960s and in Southern California, NBC — the recognized leader in some burgeoning technology called “color television” since a decade before — is the first of the Big Three national networks to broadcast its prime time lineup and news coverage in the full range of the rainbow, bringing its viewers the world in all of its vibrant palette. Not surprisingly, data showed people watched more color TV than the once-standard grayscale of black-and-white TV. Color was just more engaging, so people spent more of their time with it. It’s technological development has continued to video instantly available at your fingertips, with screens that accurately and reliably show you the world. And with wide access, acceptance turned to expectation. Hard to imagine living as well without it. But we’re not there yet. It’s still the ’60s. A father has just come home from his day as an audio man at NBC’s studios in Burbank to find his son — a self-described tinkerer — building something new. This wasn’t unusual. His boy had been interested in technology since he was little.
