“Shake Your Groove Thing” was a song by disco duo Peaches & Herb. It reached #2 for four weeks on the Billboard Disco chart in 1978. The single also reached #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #4 on the Billboard R&B Chart. Peaches & Herb are an American vocalist duo, originally comprising Herb Fame and Francine ‘Peaches’ Hurd Barker. Herb has remained a constant in Peaches & Herb since its creation in 1966, while six consecutive women have filled the role of Peaches. Herb Fame (born Herbert Feemster, October 1, 1942, in Anacostia, Washington, DC), sang in church and neighborhood groups as a child. After graduation from high school, he worked in a local record store where he met record producer Van McCoy and was signed to Columbia subsidiary Date Records by McCoy and A&R executive Dave Kapralik. Francine ‘Peaches’ Barker (born Francine Edna Hurd, April 28, 1947, in Washington, DC), using the stage name Francine Day, started a singing trio initially dubbed The Darlettes and later renamed The Sweet Things after a change of record label to Date Records. Having produced two releases for the trio, McCoy decided to record Feemster/Fame and Hurd/Day together at Kapralik’s suggestion. The new duo, christened Peaches & Herb, had a string of successful singles and albums over the next two years such as “Let’s Fall In Love”, “Close Your Eyes”, “For Your Love”, and “Love Is Strange”.

Is there such a thing as a universal TV remote control that has a timer to turn ON a televistion at set time?

I have a projection television that has a circuit board problem. It works perfectly but requires a “warm up” period of about an hour or two hours before you can see the picture on screen and then after it warms up it is crystal clear. Repair estimates are in the range of almost $400 so I have resolved to buy a new projection television, but want to wait til Black Friday (day after thanksgiving) to get the best deal which is 3 months away. I am looking to find out if anyone knows of a universal remote control that I can set on my coffee table right in front of the TV and allow it to turn the TV on an hour or so before I get home so that by the time I get home the TV can be watched.
I have seen something like this MANY moons ago for a VCR, back in the day that would turn the VCR and press record for you in case your VCR didnt have a built in timer. Yes, I know that real old school!
At any rate does anyone know if a remote control exists that has a timer function to turn my TV on?
