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.

I was only in second grade but remember this. I probably heard about this in CCD since I was in second grade.

Idk... if these ended up on TV's Bloopers and Practical Jokes, they'd get on but bleeped.

Doubtful Dick Clark and Ed McMahon could have used those MASH bloopers.

@ChrisBCritter- It has been in color the film lol.


Comment posted in WBBM Channel 2 - Seal of Good Practice, SSB, & Station Sign-Off (1981) by Detroit4Chicago on Saturday, March 21st, 2015 at 9:27pm CT

@ER3017- Thanks for the info from the schedule. With a two-hour feature (The Court-Martial of Billy Mitchell) including a few commercial spots in between, it does take up a lot of time to force a station like WBBM-TV to cancel the sermonette.

CBS O&O's were notorious for their Late Show lineups circa 1979-1980 IMHO. In places like NYC, Philly and Chicago, it was most common. But in LA, it was variable and in St. Louis, schedules were "normal:" between 1 and 3 in the morning, especially on Sundays.

I just heard a song by Jane Olivor on MeTv radio!

Interesting - I remember once seeing The Court-Martial of Billy Mitchell aired in black and white around this date. Next time I saw it I was surprised to see it was in color! Wonder how that happened?

@Detroit4Chicago- It is the second showing of "The Late Show"; they were airing "The Court-Martial of Billy Mitchell" at 3:30am and probably signed off at about 5:30am. Here's the schedule.
