I know, this isn't in line with KAAY, but it IS a significant event! Today, in 1941, there were several things happening with television:
-Commercial TV was authorized by the Federal Communications Commission.
-The world's first legal TV commercial, a 10-second spot, paid for by Bulova Watches, aired at 2:29 PM over WNBT (now WNBC) New York. It displayed a clock superimposed over the U.S.A. with a voice-over: "America runs on Bulova time."
-NBC television was launched.
-The game show "Truth or Consequences" was simulcast on radio and TV, sponsored by Ivory Soap, as a "one-off special", (whatever that means....)
Boy, times have changed, haven't they?
