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.

Comment posted in WTTW Channel 11 - Movie Eleven - "Dr. Who" (Opening, 1976) by FuzzyMemories on Monday, February 8th, 2016 at 9:58pm CT

Music Source Discovered!

Another mystery music track is identified...

(are you ready?) :-)

The theme used for Movie Eleven here was composed by Dave Grusin and is from the soundtrack for the film "The Heart is a Lonely Hunter" [1968]. Apparently, although not yet confirmed (since the soundtrack is hard to come by) - the specific name of this track is called "Growing Pains". Here's a link right to the scene in the movie where the music is used.

Many thanks to Paul Simmons for providing us with the answer!

Bernie Drayton actually e-mailed me with this information back in October of 2013, but somehow it got overlooked until now. Sorry for the oversight. :-(

From W.B. - "It has since been revealed that the theme was composed by a chap named Walter Raim (who over the years, wrote many music cues for ABC promos) around 1968, in the movie program's waning months under its original title "The Big Show," and indeed it is registered with ASCAP as "Big Show Theme." It had been commissioned by ABC in New York, and was recorded at the now-defunct Gotham Recording Corp. in New York City, with Bernard Drayton and Susan Hamilton as producers and Herman Edel Associates as the music house, with The Lampert Agency and two of its staffers, agency producer Diane Flynn and agency creative director Bill Wurtzel, also involved in the making of this piece (this info courtesy Mr. Drayton himself, in a message to this individual on YouTube, where he has an account under the name "Last Minute Entertainment"). Ed Rice was the recording engineer."

I am curious as to what format this may be. I know it's not CV-2000, since that only recorded in black-and-white. I'm thinking Type A VTR.

I.I.N.M., Chuck Barris, besides being responsible for both "The Dating Game" and "The Newlywed Game" (not to mention "The Gong Show"), also produced "The New Treasure Hunt," which may explain how that post-Game 1 music on "The Dating Game" that 'BobAnthony' mentioned, ahem, got around . . . as well as the tuxes.

You kind of get the feeling that this go round of The Dating Game was quite ribald...Jim Lange's tuxes notwithstanding. These I think were among those worn by Geoff Edwards when he hosted "The New Treasure Hunt." And yes to WB's point this was the version seen on WOR-TV Channel 9 along with The Newlywed Game's 1977-80 run. I remember seeing reruns of these shows on 9 in the mid 80's as a prep for the "New" versions of these shows.

By the way, the music used after the end of game one should be familiar to game show fans like myself. It was used when one of the prizes was won or perhaps passed up on The New Treasure Hunt (1973-77). It also served as the show's closing theme.

Thanks so much! I tried, but couldn't find anything!


Comment posted in WNBQ Channel 5 - The Dorsey Connors Show (Part 2, 1963) by W.B. on Thursday, January 21st, 2016 at 7:37pm CT

Ms. Cameron was fashion editor for the Chicago American at the time. She was mentioned in a September 16th 1962 article in the Chicago Tribune's Magazine of Books section, in the "Bystander" column by future WTTW "Book Beat" host Robert Cromie, in relation to an upcoming talk at the Chicago Public Library to be held that October 4th. One of her articles - penned in 1959, about a Swedish fashion designer named Katja - can be found online within the New School site.

Does anyone know who Jean Cameron (briefly seen in a slide at the end) was?
