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.

Do you have any Little House On The Prairie stuff recorded off
WMAQ?

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.

I'm WAY too young to remember Old Chicago, but from looking at these old commercials, it looks like it was an indoor type of amusement park, kind of like what Camp Snoopy or I think it's Nickelodeon Land at Mall of America. Am I right?

@Brian1978 - Well, they did air the same commercial that day (almost - see below) but the one posted here did come from an entirely new and undiscovered Bozo's Circus episode that I found, which aired on Wednesday, July 11th 1979.

By the way, the version of this ad that did air during Chicagofest interestingly has a slightly different opening title card - all in white versus the oscillating multi-color seen here. Take a look.

This was the second commercial during the first break of the special, "Bozo at Chicagofest" taking place on August 3rd, 1979. I will always think of it being after the commercial for Dispensa's Kiddie Kingdom.


Comment posted in WLS Channel 7 - AM Chicago (Preview & Pre-Show Break, 1981) by Studio76Art on Sunday, July 27th, 2014 at 8:02pm CT

Wow, old post! Anyway, that's Steve Vinovich ("Mannequin") as the hapless father in the Aunt Jemima ad.


Comment posted in WFLD Channel 32 - Big Movie - "Waterloo Bridge" (On-Screen Station ID & Commercial Break, 1978) by Studio76Art on Saturday, July 26th, 2014 at 8:23pm CT

I like that several minutes of the film was shown, even if it was just for the onscreen ID. After watching, I felt as if I actually earned that commercial break. :')

"So whaddya got Johnson?"

"A brand new gum named for something your bathwater comes out of!...and wait until you see the commercial I came up with!"

What? No MGM Lion here?

Felipe Rose (the Indian) scarily resembles the Twi'lek dancer from Return of the Jedi who's dumped into the Rancor pit by Jabba, the way he's moving around on stage with the headdress swinging behind him.


Comment posted in WMAQ Channel 5 - NBC Monday Night At The Movies - "A Case Of Rape" (Commercial Break, 1975) by Studio76Art on Thursday, July 24th, 2014 at 4:55pm CT

Matt Snell is famous for having scored the only Super Bowl touchdown in NY Jets history, in their 16-7 win over the Colts in 1968.

Wow, that looks...gross. No wonder it didn't stay on the market for very long.

I'm almost positive that's Eddie Deezen as the groom; his face is a giveaway but I couldn't find any pictures of him with that hair. This would've been a year after he appeared in Grease.
