R.L. Dukes Oldsmobile - "The Deal Maker" (Commercial, 1982)

Here's an extended R.L. Dukes Oldsmobile commercial - these were some pretty catchy and entertaining commercials that never really got their full due.

R.L. Dukes Oldsmobile - The Deal Maker - at 78th Street and the Dan Ryan in Chicago.

Directed by Howie Samuelsohn. I wonder who the voiceover guy is - he's pretty cool. :-)

This aired on local Chicago TV in 1982.

Funky old school R&B theme in the 1980's!

This place was about 4 blocks east from where my aunt lived. I lived farther south in Roseland, but we used to go pass here to my aunts for BBQing. It's loooong gone now.

That voice over dude is really jammin! I'd love to know if he's still working.

Is Howie Samuelsohn the former hippie with the missing eye that used to be on WSNS-TV?

Was the R.L. Dukes Oldsmobile car dealer a former Kohl's grocery store since it's the same shape as one of those Kohl's grocery stores?

The lady in the commercial has a nice chasis ; ). My dad had a '79 Cutlass Supreme Broham, that car rocked!

You could be right that it was an old Kohl's store. Check out this link of one of the old stores.

It did sort of look like Jesse Jackson was mad at Mike Douglas right? LOL!

Interesting, the man who helped lead the Cubs to their closest shot at the World Series played there 24 years prior having no clue just how close he got.

By the by, for those who are wondering what Orion Samuelson's up to now, he appeared on RFD TV recently at a televised parade or something.

Between WMET and WNUA they were WRXR. Loved that station and listened until they flipped the summer of 1987. They were like WCKG with more variety.

Wait a sec - that's Orion Samuelson, right?
