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.
Comment posted by FuzzyMemories on Monday, June 8th 2009 at 9:36pm.

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.

Comment posted in WMAQ Channel 5 - NewsCenter5 Update (1978) by W.B. on Thursday, March 22nd, 2018 at 5:34pm CT

Here is what I mean by WNBC Channel 4's protocol for sign-off news (and sign-offs in general) as of 1979. Bill Rippe was the newsreader (and voiceover). That is what I mean by their newscast slide on sign-off news as "WNBC-TV News." Mr. Rippe and others at the time characterized such sign-off editions as "a report of late news, sports and weather from NewsCenter4."

Comment posted in WLUP - The Loop FM 98 - "Baby Boom" (Commercial, 1984) by LaPrincess on Monday, March 12th, 2018 at 5:03pm CT

I was watching Windy City Live this morning and Mancow was on. Whether one likes him or not, he said something that resonated with me and he said it wasn't that surprising. He then mentioned rock is pretty much dead and he sadly might have a point. Look at most of the most popular acts today, how many are actually "rock"? I'm not sure. Even if one believes there is still a format, listen to new rock stations. I mentioned this on Facebook to a few of you, but I've been listening to Q101 more and more and so many of the bands today sound like bands of yesteryear. I mentioned that I thought two songs were done by Duran Duran but they weren't (nothing against Duran Duran, I love them, but we don't need bands that sound like them when they are still around). Rock music is becoming more cookie cutter. Yeah other genres are worse (country and rap are vile), but I expect more from rock because it's bands playing their own instruments and writing their own songs. I am what is called a rockist, and make no apologies. I don't really like mainstream pop or hip hop or country or most of today's music. I like alternative and classic rock, I love guitar and drums.

Well, it's been a great 41 years.

If the sale/demise of The Loop isn't evidence that terrestrial radio is on the decline, I do not know what is!
Looks like the only area classic rock stations left (as of this date) are The Drive (97.1 and 96.9 FM) and The Fox (103.9 PM).
I guess this is because of the rise in popularity of on-line radio services like AccuRadio (my personal favorite), Spotify, Pandora, TuneIn, iHeart, Sirius/XM (pretty good if you have the money), etc. that pretty much has some advantages over terrestrial radio: less commercials, less talk, and some services can let you listen to stations from "out of market" which gives listeners more choice.
The listeners as well as the personalities are aging!
Times they are a changing!
Don't be sad that it is over...
Be glad that it was there and you were a part of it!
Thanks, WLUP/Loop.
Cheers.

Oh, and the price tag for WLUP's sale? $21.5 million.


Comment posted in WLUP - The Loop FM 98 - "Lorelei's Rock Show" (Commercial, 1980) by VintageCanada on Tuesday, March 6th, 2018 at 5:55pm CT

As everyone in Chicago knows now, WLUP has been sold to a Christian-based company, and by now, the classic rock era of this station has come to an end. Heard about the news this morning.


Comment posted in WFLD Channel 32 - M*A*S*H (On-Screen ID, 1981) by Szake on Sunday, March 4th, 2018 at 9:12am CT

David Ogden Stiers (October 31, 1942-March 3, 2018)

Peoria, Illinois born actor, voice actor and musician David Ogden Stiers has passed away at the age of 75. More recently known as Reverend Gene Purdy on "The Dead Zone," Mr. Stiers was also the narrator for "American Experience" and voiced cartoons such as Lilo & Stitch, Winnie the Pooh, Beauty and the Beast and other Disney projects. Here he is as Major Charles Winchester on "M*A*S*H" from season 8, episode 22 "Dreams" which originally aired on CBS (locally WBBM-TV channel 2) on February 18, 1980 and rerun on WFLD Channel 32 on September 9, 1981.

Wonder if any of the Metromedia stations ran "SoS" in a manner not too dissimilar to some Field stations when that company ran 32 (think WKBS Channel 48 and KBHK Channel 44) . . . I know, given the movie skeins New York's WNEW Channel 5 had on Saturdays (including "Drive-In Movie"), they would've never aired "SoS" . . .
