I knew brothers who would not allow a television in thier house. You were lucky if you were around any that listened to music. We would jokingly among older ones talk of going out and pulling our Earth Wind & Fire albums out and taking them for a spin.
It was such a tight asseded religion that there was never any room for the normal things. Did you ever go to those gatherings where there was nothing on for background music except for Kingdom Melodies? Were we a lost cause or what? It's scary to think how far gone some of us were, and we only associated it with normalcy.
