While rather tame by today's standards, our Boston Sports Insider Tom Caron delicately explains the spicy late movies that were shown on 'The French Channel'. A hilarious and nostalgic discussion, and I haven't stopped blushing yet.

We never had remote control for the longest time, so, a few times I can recall running 50 miles an hour to the cable switcher on top of the TV if I thought I heard footsteps in the kitchen.

To be honest though, while he was talking about it, I was still giggling about Channel 10.
