You guys in Chicago had an ICON in Harry Caray. He was the voice of the fan, as much Phil Rizzutto was with my Yankees (now nobody from the South Side hold it against me!). Now that the two are together up there, the rage over who started "HOLY COW!" starts again! And congrats on the article fuzz!

Awesome clip Fuzzy Memories. More 80s White Sox Clips please and thank you.

I am getting a whole bunch of 80's White Sox, currently transferred - no WSNS, this is from the WFLD-era, but still cool - I'll post some when I get it. :-)

Bob--remember that, before he moved to Chicago, Harry Caray was iconic in St. Louis as well, broadcasting for the Cardinals on the radio for 24 years before he got unceremoniously booted in 1969. Rumor has it, he slept with Gussie Busch's daughter-in-law (Anheuser-Busch owned the team at the time).

For those who are wondering, the White Sox beat the Brewers 6-5 in the end.

Uh, no - sorry. Can't post anything like this on YouTube. Maybe FuzzyMemories.TV will have an embed function in the future, but not right now. :-(

GO SOX!!!!!

Thanks for working on posting more Sox broadcasts. If you could find more Channel 44 era broadcasts from the 70's, that would be a find, indeed. But I imagine those would be hard to come by. Anything with banter between Harry Caray and Jimmy Piersall would really be great.
Great job with this site. You are bringing us a lot of smiles via your hard work.

Damn, those White Sox uniforms were ugly :) Cecil Cooper batting before the inning ends, his stance was unmistakable. This day was my wife's 12th birthday :)

Those Sox uniforms were just God-awful. Maybe if they said "DETROIT" instead of "CHICAGO" they'd have looked better. LOL Sorry everyone, Tiger fan here :-)

Those were the days! I miss the old lady Comiskey Park! My first ballgame I went to was when I was 6 against the Baltimore Orioles. Thanks Fuzzymemories!

And to think, Brewers - White Sox could be your World Series matchup this year, though I think the Cubs will have a lot to say about that.

WBBM "Sportsradio 78"? What's up with that?

Comment posted by blackwave on Wednesday, October 1st 2008 at 11:28pm.

In those days, WBBM did a lot of sports play-by-play (White Sox, Bears), so they called themselves both "Newsradio 78" and "Sportsradio 78."

This was the last season of the Bill Veeck regime as White Sox owner. Afterwards, I read that Eddie Debartolo was ready to buy the team, but MLB didn't want him. Why they didn't want him was a lot of nonsense.

Say, whatever became of Jimmy Pearsall anyway?

Upgraded the video file on this one.

My parents moved to the same condo development as Jimmy Piersall in 1992. In Wheaton. They moved away awhile back, but as far as I know, he's still there, this Tribune article describes him as a 25 year resident of Wheaton. He was very quiet, but his wife was the unofficial queen of the complex's pool. You didn't want to cross her. Never got the nerve to ask for his autograph. At the time I think Jimmy was still a "scout" for either the Sox or the Cubs, though I don't know how much actual work that entailed.

As for this game, the Sox rallied with two runs in the 8th to win 6-5.

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'?

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