WFLD Channel 32 - License Renewal Notice (1980)

Here is an FCC license renewal notice from WFLD Channel 32 featuring Naurice Roberts.

"On November 30th, 1979, WFLD-TV was granted a license by the Federal Communications Commission, to serve the public interest as a public trustee until December 1st, 1982. Each August 1st we place in our public inspection file a list of what we consider to have been some of the significant problems and needs of our service area during the preceding 12 months and some of our programming aired to help meet those problems and needs. We invite viewers to send specific suggestions or comments concerning our station operation and programming efforts to:

300 North State Street
Chicago, Illinois 60610

Unless otherwise requested all letters received will be available for public inspection during regular business hours."

This aired on local Chicago TV on Wednesday, April 16th 1980 during the 11am-12pm hour.

Hmm...They needed to put more umph into it and have her dance around and scream "YIPPIEEEEEE! WE GOT OUR LICENSE! WE GOT OUR LICENSE! WOO HOO! HAHAHAH! WE'RE NUMBER ONE! WE'RE NUMBER ONE! WE DIDN'T SCREW UP OR SAY THE F WORD ON THE AIR!" as she waves the license like a flag!

I think her hairdresser happened to have an audio supply catalog in the waiting area. Her Afro was clearly inspired by a microphone windscreen!

The "problems and needs" phrase stood out to me... it was also used in the WSNS license renewal script read by Linda Frost. That makes me wonder if this wording was taken straight out of the Federal Register, like the Emergency Broadcast System script, which we know was not "in voluntary cooperation" at all!

The language is not from the Federal Register, but from the FCC "Primer on Ascertainment of Community Problems by Broadcast Applicants."

Wow... that was actually the title of an FCC publication. I thought you were pulling my leg at first!

He will be missed.

Comment posted in WMAQ Channel 5 - Off the Wall (Opening & Break, 1977) by FieldGal44 on Wednesday, September 26th, 2018 at 7:04pm CT

Off the Wall was just one of four college-themed sitcoms that sank over the next two years, though this one was a year before Animal House. In 1979, AH ripoffs Brothers & Sisters, Delta House, and Co-Ed Fever would all bomb, with the latter lasting a whopping single episode like this stinker.

Comment posted in WGN Channel 9 - "Comedy Tonight!" (Promo, 1979) by FieldGal44 on Tuesday, September 25th, 2018 at 2:17pm CT

"Comedy Tonight" was adapted for a Stove Top commercial in 1986.

1:18 Y'know, if you really have to store your leftover crepes in the freezer...

Comment posted in WSNS Channel 44 - "DePaul Basketball" (Station ID, 1978) by FieldGal44 on Friday, September 21st, 2018 at 12:36am CT

The 1977-78 DePaul team was led by the mighty Dave Corzine, who went pro after that season and, of course, would spend seven years with the Bulls.

I ate way too much Quaker instant oatmeal growing up. The raisins & spice was my favorite.

Good Lord, this is not the way to sell a radio station. As Fuzzy says, utterly generic, not to mention redundant ("old great classics"). What genre are they selling?? Plus, the camera is right in his face like an '80s PSA, and he sounds like he's hawking something on a street corner. I'm surprised he didn't start by saying "Psst! Hey, kid!"

I may be wrong, but that mic might look like the Electro-Voice EV-667 . . .
