You'll find ten more Buckeye CableSystem ads today, all from November 1993. There are four additions to the Buckeye CableSystem gallery, starting with a Saturday, 11/20/93 ad for "The Best Weekend Fishing" on TNN. Fishin' with Orlando Wilson was on at 11:30, followed by North American Sportsman and Great American Outdoors.
