Includes a "Last Farewell" WGN-TV ID at the beginning. (not sure who the announcer is)

(Quality's a little iffy at parts - this was at the end of a tape before it ran out, so unfortunately this is all there is)

Man,alive.I don't know what's rare,that opening from the "pre-Jordan" era,or Bob Costas announcing.

I could be wrong,but that guy in the Ch 9 ID might have been Marty McNeeley.

For those who are interested -- don't want to ruin the suspense or anything -- the Bulls won this one 121-112 for their 2nd win in a row out of 3, their longest winning streak of the season.

Ringy - Did you look that up or are you a B-Ball Stats Rainman? :-)

Fuzzy... I know all.

Too bad the Sonics look like they will move out of Seattle because the pople won't give them a new arena to replace one only redone in 1995. Also, currently on the Kingdome site the Seahawks's stadium Qwest Field.

As a Yankee fan I am GLAD to death the Kingdome is no more. I need remind you in 1995, The Mariners beat my Yankees in the American League division playoffs on a walk-off hit leading to Ken Griffey, Jr. scoring the winning run. That place was nightmare alley for the bombers. Other than that, it's quite the thing seeing Bulls basketball pre-Michael Jeffrey Jordan, who happens to have been born on February 17th, as I was!

I was going to watch this game but the arena held more than 20,000 people so I didn't.

With that game alone,the Supersonics outdrew the Mariners!

And now,I hear the Sonics want to bail out of Seattle and move to Oklahoma City.

hey Ringthane, if you know all then who were the starting five for the Bulls that night? The tape ran out before we could find out.
Comment posted by madsixtian on Monday, March 10th 2008 at 6:37pm.

OK, I don't know all... but my educated guess is that the Bulls started Theus and Gilmore, obviously, and then the rookie Greenwood, Sobers, and probably Dietrick.

Also for those interested Rush Street Reggie lead the Bulls with 26 pts that night, David Greenwood and Mark Landesberger each pulled down 11 boards.

Thanks to "hardlines4" on YouTube, we now know the name and composer of the piece of music used as the theme to Movie Greats heard here!

It is the theme from the 1965 movie "36 Hours" - "A Heart Must Learn to Cry" and it is performed here by Marty Gold and his Orchestra.

Here's a link to download the full track:

PVX: I was a master control operator in the 1990s and 2000s, and the ISCI codes were 4 letters and 4 numbers. An Ad Council public service announcement started with the letter C and three letters for the campaign, the digits would start with the year the spot was created, the revision or version number, and the last 2 digits being the length of the ad, so a 30 second Smokey the Bear Forest Fire Prevention PSA from 1999 would have been CNFF-9130.

Is that cottage cheese on the plate, or some kind of tartar sauce?

Mark-Paul Gosselaar's first commercial is for DAS Smurf Modelling Clay. He would have been 8 years old here.
