I remember going to a Burger Chef right into Indiana (Dyer or Schererville) and they had his really cool map thing where you could play with cars on.

The copyright probably says 1975. (Probably uploading in high-quality 640 x 480 might be a clue to answering this mystery - just a suggestion.)

According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burger_Chef , many locations became Hardee's and the final Burger Chef closed in 1996.

I remember the old Burger Chef in Goshen, Indiana. Great burgers...also remember "the works" bar.

Forgot that they sold fish at one time.

I think it's a Dairy Queen now.

Burger Chef and Jeff appear toward the end of the commercial.

It's either a 1975 or '76 copyright. I really had to strain my eyes to get a good look at it and even then I couldn't completely make it out.

I can't get that girl's voice out of my head. I keep saying to random people, "Why don't you try our new mariner dinner?" while bobbing my head. No joke.

It was announced yesterday that Bon-Ton is closing this Bergner's store in Peoria. It had been open for more than 60 years.

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.

My parents used to watch him.

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'?
