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:


WFLD-TV
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!

It would be interesting to hear an aircheck of the early Loop...get an idea of what they were putting out on the airwaves before they went personality-driven, unabashedly hardcore rock.

It says video not found or access denied. I can't play it at all.

Was that pilot they're talking to high? What was the matter with him?

LMBO @FuzziyMemories and BabyBear on your comments!!

It used a red/white/blue motif. That wouldn't do today, too offensive. Now it would be pink, cream and aqua, with a vegan represented just so no one feels left out.

So much better than Ving Rhames bellowing "AW-Bee's! We have duh Meats!"

I miss those big cans of Hi-C Citrus Cooler - it was the perfect drink to go with brown sugar cinnamon Pop Tarts.

Where do you guys think you're going? Have some beer before you go out driving on those dark, icy roads!


Comment posted in WLUP - 'The Loop' FM 98 - "Do You Like Music?" (Commercial, 1978) by David H on Sunday, May 13th, 2018 at 10:57pm CT

Why, I like music. Especially "good ones." I think I'll give this musical radio station a try.
