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.

They made the plastic Burger King look like this one, I think.

Here's some info I found on Tony the Pony. It doesn't appear to be locally produced.

It was Missy Gold in the Burger King ad. Funny because I knew that the second I saw her. She wouldn't be known to a national audience until Benson's debut in 1979.

You are correct. I can't believe I typed the wrong thing and no one caught it earlier!

The F & M in Buffalo Grove was at Dundee and Buffalo Grove Roads, not Dundee and 12.

There was also an F & M in Joliet off Larkin Avenue. Last I checked it was home to Big Lots.


Comment posted in WGN Channel 9 - Creature Features - "The Raven" (Opening & Bumper Excerpts, 1978) by AdoreSixtyFour on Monday, November 17th, 2014 at 1:59pm CT

I'm so glad this footage has turned up--I remembered seeing Creature Features in the late '70s and early '80s, but every historical reference I could find on the Interwebs told me that it ended in May 1976, so I assumed my memory was just wrong...until now! I also remember the simple opening with the blue slide. I must have been up late during summer vacation to see it, and I don't know which movie I saw (Kronos, maybe, since I remember seeing that on CF, though it only aired once in the "classic" era...when I was 9), but I remember being shocked (and thrilled!) to see it still on the air. I still have dreams about the show, too--usually that somebody has at least briefly revived it and I've stumbled across it on cable. (You listening Antenna TV? Cozi? This?)


Comment posted in WSNS Channel 44 - Monster Rally Movie - "Opening Outtakes" (1976) by AdoreSixtyFour on Monday, November 17th, 2014 at 1:47pm CT

Wow...I remembered Monster Rally (I think I watched every local horror-film showcase in the '70s & '80s), but had completely forgotten this super-cool opening!


Comment posted in WLS Channel 7 - Fahey Flynn Presents Seven's Greetings (Part 2, 1972) by Larkin Royal on Monday, November 17th, 2014 at 2:02am CT

These puppets were later used on a show called I.N.K. -- Interesting News for Kids. I thought it was on WMAQ, but maybe I'm wrong on that. The mic was named Mike Rafone, (get it?), and the show also featured a character who was a spider that looked like a black glove with a huge black pin cushion sewn onto the top of it. This is the ONLY reference I've seen to the show in years.


Comment posted in WSNS Channel 44 - Monster Rally Movie - "Opening Outtakes" (1976) by Larkin Royal on Monday, November 17th, 2014 at 1:47am CT

Did this ever go anywhere, or was it just an opening, which was also used, (as I remember), as a commercial? I don't remember ever seeing the host doing any bumpers or skits, ala Svengoolie.
