30 Years Ago Today

Here's an interesting clip - the Illinois Lottery drawing on WGN Channel 9 where on this particular night, the balls did not drop into the mixing chamber for the "Cash 5" game and the winning numbers had to be selected off camera and given via an on-screen scroll about 20 minutes later, during the 7 O'Clock Movie airing of "Vertigo".

Featuring Merri Dee doing the drawing. Not sure who the voice over is by, although it sounds a little like Joan Kohn. Also features supervision by Sheldon Epstein - partner with the accounting firm of Laventhol & Horwath.

The Winning Daily Game number was 4-8-7. The Pick 4 winning numbers were 4-3-1-3. The Illinois State Lottery's Cash-5 game winning numbers were 33-32-09-14-12.

"Here's Merri Dee with todights three Daily Game machines..."

This aired on July 18, 1988.

The music for the drawing sounds familiar, what's it called?

I bet this is not the first time the machines like the one for Ca$h 5 causes technical problems, because during the news on Channel 2, they did a story about the lottery drawing snafu.

ChitownTVFan: It is Beethoven's "Fur Elise" but in a "Hooked On Classics" version.

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?

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!

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