As reported Sept. 19, 1984, in The Sun:
It won't catch on like "Saturday Night Live," and it certainly won't make any waves for Dandy Don and company on "Monday Night Football."
But County Council members are hoping their Monday night live meeting telecasts will bring county government closer to their constituents.
Starting Oct. 1, the council's legislative -- or voting -- meetings will be televised live, gavel-to-gavel, on Howard Cabvle Television Associates cable Channel 15, the county government channel. The council's more frequent work sessions will not be televised.
HCTA is the only cable firm servicing county residents. The western and southern parts of the county and Elkridge are not served by HCTA, which has concentrated its efforts in Ellicott City and Columbia.
