  1. Thank you for making it easier to find such great golden oldiesTV, Kevin. I appreciate your efforts even more now that TV has become my primary source of entertainment. I loved you back when I first discovered and subscribed to ‘retro tv back before forever started for me and I love you even more now. I sincerely hope that you have been enjoying a wonderful and wonder-filled life all these years. I tried googling retrovision tv and they kept on misdirecting me to Retravision (out of Australia). At least ‘retro-tv movies still show up in my inbox, so I still get to watch. Thank you again. love ya from Duncan, SC
