Local Television Schedule for Sept. 13-19, 1954

I came across an old television guide from 1955 when looking through the National Archives online database. This is a great window into how different TV was 60 years ago. Pinky Lee, Concerning Miss Marlowe and Hoppity Skippity instead of American Idol, The Bachelorette and Jersey Shore. Times sure have changed.

The four stations listed at WNBW, WTTG, WMAL and WTOP. Click on the image to see the detailed PDF.

It’s nice to see one thing that was relevant in 1954 is still relevant today … Betty White. She had a show on the local NBC affiliate, WNBW at 4:30 p.m., Monday to Wednesday.
