Don't you love it when on air talent go out of their way to point out a technical error. They never do that when it's their fault.

That was one of my favorite Chicago news themes. Too bad they cut it off early at the end of the newscast.

Remember that Eddie Einhorn was the face of the Sox back in the beginning. Now it's Reinsdorf. I know Einhorn was very ill for awhile I suppose that's why he's rarely seen these days.

Carlton Fisk one of the White Sox best acquisitions ever.

That awesome DePaul team was the best we ever had prior to the Jordan Bulls of the 90's. I wished that Mark Aguirre would've stayed an extra year. They would've been NCAA champs.

What happened to Jim Ruddle? I haven't anything of him in many years.

He's happily enjoying retirement, so I've read.

"Pitch to Fisk at your own risk"!Man,I remember that sign that the Sox Supporters displayed at the left field wall at old Comiskey Park!And I have both the home and road 1981 "Throwback" jerseys that I proudly wear every so often!

What is that thing on the shelf behind Chet Coppock during the Eddie Einhorn interview?
Comment posted by kba on Monday, June 23rd 2008 at 8:23pm.

Books and a obviously phony fake plant that probably goes back to Kukla Fran and Ollie.

On today's Weekend Edition Saturday on NPR, they did a story on former Mayor Jane Byrne which touched on her controversial decision to move into Cabrini Green during the Spring of 1981. They used a snippet from one of our videos - a WBBM-TV Channel 2 Newsbreak with Harry Porterfield.

Dick Orkin was Chickenman back in the 1960's! He was the greatest! And looking at his page on Wikipedia, this site has one of his Henry's commercials.... http://fuzzymemories.tv/#videoclip-3193 . I'm surprised I didn't catch it last year...

Just got one Sarah Miles film in the books. It isn't Blow-Up yet, but I still have the DVD. (The film I did complete tonight features brief appearances by James Stewart.)


Comment posted in Just Pants (Commercial, 1978) by HUdson 3-2700 on Thursday, August 21st, 2014 at 8:32pm CT

We had both Just Pants and Just Jeans at one time. Talk about confusing...

I did a tribute to Don this morning on my blog.

He was a dedicated professional and he will be missed.

"Ladies & gentlemen, it's with great admiration that I present for the 2,753rd time. The star of Jeopardy!... Art Fleming!" - Don Pardo on the last NBC telecast of Jeopardy! aired on Friday, January 3, 1975.

Rest in peace, Don Pardo. 96 years is such a blessing!

My guess is that they had a copy of Primal Scream sitting around the studio and used it for everything...


Comment posted in WBKB Channel 7 - Midwest Sports Special - "Inside the World of Hockey with the Chicago Blackhawks" (Part 1, 1964) by jfthstv on Thursday, August 14th, 2014 at 2:09am CT

This early Chicago Blackhawks sports special is a fascinating look into one of Chicago's favorite sports franchises before the advent of 24/7 cable sports networks and the Blackhawks own Blackhawks TV on the internet. This practice session is also the precusor to the morning practice skating sessions that is occasionally seen these days on Comcast SportsNet.


Comment posted in WGN Channel 9 - Here's Looking At You Kid Theater (Promo, 1981) by VintageCanada on Wednesday, August 13th, 2014 at 8:57am CT

RIP Lauren Bacall, whose film Dark Passage was the only one (of the 4 she teamed up with Bogart) WGN ran during this series of programs in that span.
