Mom Upset by The Moon Landing On TV

STORY BY: Bob Burns
YEAR: 1969
LOCATION: Winnipeg

Bob's mom told him the story of how she called the CBC to complain that Mr. Dressup and The Friendly Giant were pre-empted by the coverage of the Apollo 11 Moon landing in July 1969. That hour-long window of TV was the only break she had from Bob and his sister driving her crazy. Thanks for sharing, Bob.
