A Photo A Day – Icons

This photo evoked memories of Sunday evenings with Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom, The Wonderful World of Disney and of course 60 Minutes.  I am sure I shared these experiences with more people than just my family and I wonder what shared cultural experiences do kids growing up today have?  Growing up in an age where there were essentially ony three major networks we all pretty much watched the same programs, for better or worse, and those shows gave us cultural touchstones.  I don’t know that present and future generations will have the same experience, or worse they’ll only be able to share Jersey Shore recollections.
