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

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 don't either, but is that Eddie Deezen as the groom?

I don't remember this...

I know there was an ad to the tune of "Let's Twist Again" but the lyrics went "Let's do it again at Old Chicago".

And wasn't there one of a tap dancer on the dome of the building?


Comment posted in WPWR Channel 60 - Music Video 60 - "Get Well Fast Michael" (1984) by Szake on Tuesday, July 15th, 2014 at 9:09pm CT

Brian: True, but Channel 60 was licensed to Aurora, Illinois. When they moved to Channel 50, the city of license was Gary, Indiana.


Comment posted in WGN Channel 9 - Bozo's Circus - "Skylab Synchronicity" (1979) by ChitownTVFan on Tuesday, July 15th, 2014 at 7:19pm CT

Another thing about the plummeting of Skylab is no one was injured.

Fred Astaire and Rita Hayworth. Fred always said that Rita was his favorite dance partner. She was just beautiful.

This was the episode wheer Romana regenerated from Mary Tamm to Lalla Ward. It was the season after "The Key To Time" story line.

It should be pointed out that WPWR 60/50 was licensed out of Gary, Indiana, the birthplace and childhood home of Michael Jackson.

Unreal, just amazing--especially after seeing Harry Caray's promo.

I think the chicken gimmick would have been more effective in interviews if he didn't break kayfabe (character). After all, Ted did win the lawsuit! Reminds me of that episode of Married With Children where Kelly is dating an actor who was a cat food mascot named Neuter; He can only be intimate and extroverted if he wore the head from the costume. I wonder if Ted was that way?

"Every now and then in sports, there are sideline stories that make bigger news than the sports happenings themselves."

Perfect thing to say right before the game that contained Disco Demolition!
