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!

Seems like Speed kept getting farmed out to progressively higher stations; 32..44..50..60..66....

Christopher Michael offers two tales about a common radio mental hiccup - "At WYEN in Des Plaines, Illinois where I was an overnight jock, several of us were talking about Chicago's WCFL, and wouldn't you know, a song ended, I opened the mic and proudly said 'WCFL...' Then I paused for what must have seemed like an eternity while I tried to figure out just what the heck I would do next. I think I said something like "Well, actually, no, this is WYEN. But you knew that." We were known as Request Radio, but one night I was listening to WLS, 'the Big 89,' on my way to work and was really connected to the music and J.J. Jeffries doing the evening show. So I got on the air and with my first selling of the phone number for requests, I gave the phone number for WLS. We were a suburban Chicago station with a fairly low number of listeners - or so I thought. I learned otherwise when people started calling me, saying the guy at the phone number I gave was getting really angry that our listeners were calling him!" Christopher went on to work for Mutual, NBC, was an editor and writer for Paul Harvey - and is now a news anchor at WLS.

Dave Allen and Monty Python - A Great Sunday Night on Channel 11! If you watch this show notice that Allen lost the top of his left forefinger. He tells many different stories about how he lost it.

I'd gotten a DVD compilation of some of his works - apparently an import (must've been that Amazon link 'Polyrasmatazz' mentioned). Fortunately, I have a multi-region DVD player to play it on.

And some commercial stations ran DAaL. In New York City, WPIX Channel 11 ran it for a time in 1975, and then in 1980 it was WOR Channel 9's turn (one of his later seasons).

The details have been duly filled in by the pertinent elves in charge of fleshing out same.

Wonder what cameras were used by 'FLD then - Ikegamis? Philips'?

The one that was on Kingery Road/IL Route 83 is now Binney's and is quite a place
