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.

Now that I'm now a local Las Vegan, I see Anderson Dairy trucks all the time. I wonder if they still supply the Mac & Dons out here...

I'd swear that 3rd guy with the tie was none other than a certain Gunnery Sargeant from "Full Metal Jacket". The one & only Mr. R. Lee Ermey

In the opening of the commercial is the store front of a Woolworth store in some shopping mall with 1970's-1983 Woolworth logo signage.

1975 is my guess.


Comment posted in McDonald's - "Nobody Can Do It Like McDonald's Can" (Commercial, 197?) by Dth1971 on Tuesday, April 14th, 2015 at 6:56pm CT

This is really from 1979, I know it.

I can tell you that my father, my first stepfather, & my last stepfather all had something in common(other than my mom): They all would have preferred the Bob Seger "Night Moves" LP. LOL.

What an interesting piece. I wonder if they still raise buffalo. I looked on Google and there is a listing for a tree nursery business owned by Lynn. I couldn't find anything when I looked up the Reeds.

There used to be a buffalo farm on Route 60 near Mundelein. I remember seeing it when my family would drive to Hawthorn mall.

Man, the McD uniforms were much better looking in the mid 1970's, especially on the females.

Once they went to that "common look" which everyone wore there, circa 1979, I didn't care for it much. Bland or tacky, perhaps?

Also notice at the 0:03 mark, is a vintage truck for Anderson Dairy in Las Vegas. (Local supplier to McD for their dairy or just a free plug?)

My guess is that this was probably produced around 1979, and it was played around the 1979-1980 period.

I remember on a field trip to a cider mill. While riding on our school bus going there, some of the kids on our bus, young as 7 years old (I didn't join in, but I did enjoy it) were singing the chorus of this jingle over and over, for approx. 10 minutes. And this was in the fall of 1979.

We never went to McDonald's on the trip, however.

Before this, it was:

"At McDonald's, You're the Only One,"
"At McDonald's, We Do It All for You"
and of course,
"You Deserve a Break Today, at McDonald's.

1976-1978, no earlier or later than that (just a guess).
