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.

Sorry to make you go through any trouble. That news clip actually precedes the Nite-Owl clip on the tape. I just tried to edit it out when posting this clip. One frame must have slipped through. :-)

That's WLS-TV. (from left) Jay Levine, Diane Allen, Jay Berry.

Anyone know what station this was? I had to do something very clever to make that frame useable.

I actually picked up two tapes at a flea market last weekend. One of the tapes had a CBC Newfoundland sign-off from 1993 that ran after the 1937 British film Return of the Scarlet Pimpernel, and on the other, the Season 11 premiere of Dallas from 9/25/1987. Both tapes contained some soap operas, one of which whose intro can be found here.

I'll be posting some more of the stuff from those two tapes over the next few days.

Do you think the syndicated "The Palace" was a short lived revival attempt of the original 1960's ABC variety show "The Hollywood Palace"?

OOOPS! It seems that somebody got Jane Jetson's & Judy Jetson's hair colors mixed up LOL.

GalagaFleetCommander - Johnny Unitas used to wear his hair in a crewcut until about 1970, when he decided to let it grow out to where he could part it. A real square...

Johnny Unitas did WHAT? I can't believe that! He's got that perfect haircut you can set a watch to like Abe Simpsons said! I wonder if he made anyone any significant amount of money.

About 2 years ago, my brother and I was on our way to the park and I saw boxes and boxes of videos, and my brother and I agreed to get almost all of them. Unfortunately, due to my strength, I didn't carry a lot, so I grabbed like 2 boxes and some videos are quite interesting I tell you. I'am still waiting to deliver these to you because if I wait, not only they'll rot but worried that these will be in the dumpster like my mom did but retrieved by me thank god.
