Coffee With Jeff #175: Broadcast Signal Intrusions

26 mins - Published Sun, Apr 21, 2019 by Jeff Kelley

Imagine this, you are watching TV in the evening or late night. Maybe it is a movie starring Timothy Hutton and Sean Penn or a 1977 episode of Dr. Who, when suddenly something odd interrupts your viewing. Maybe it’s a message for a cable channel or a man in a mask getting spanked.

Today, I have two true stories of broadcast signal intrusion, the Max Headroom and the HBO Captain Midnight Incident, on the 175th episode of Sunday Morning Coffee with Jeff.
