History of Husky Football on TV

I've always been a Husky fan but never even attended a game until 1989. I remember watching the 1978 RB and Warren Moon. That game really opened my eyes about how good the Huskies were and could be. My question for you guys is what was the history of Husky Football on TV? When was the first game televised? I know some of of the bowl games may or may not have been televised back in the day but what about the Apple Cup or was it just on the radio. My mother said my dad used to listen to Husky games in the Jim Owen era while working in the backyard. We did have some local Seattle channels on TV and maybe they showed some rivalry games that would be interesting for the region but obviously not on the national scene.
