I grew up a PBS kid.
Our family didn’t have cable (still doesn’t, in fact), and so that meant almost everything I watched came from WGBH, our local public television station. My dad is a woodworker, with his shop only a few minutes walk from our house, and he was the one that looked after me as a small child. In the afternoons, when he was tired out from trucking toddler/kid-me around to job sites and putting me to work in the shop, he’d head into the house to make lunch and catch an hour’s nap. But, like a lot of kids, I wasn’t too intent on sleeping. So he’d flick on the TV before passing out on the couch.
