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.

Rick: I'm not able to update this post. Are you able to change my website link to the current address of www.waltdatedworld.com ? I am having trouble with traffic still showing in Google from my old site address (we are working on redirects but it's really a messed up, long story) and this was one thing that showed up. Thanks!

Voiceover by Dave Martin, who was WCFL's program director at the time. He later held the same job at WCLR, and voiced this commercial, too.

After his near fatal car accident in 1954 that left him blind in one eye, was it really the best idea to have Sammy Davis Junior getting in a car ready to drive off after mailing a letter?

At the start of this ad, there is a 0 in the upper left hand corner, a 1 in the upper right hand corner, a 4 in the lower left hand corner and a 3 in the lower right hand corner.


Comment posted in WMAQ Channel 5 - NewsCenter5 - "Disco Demolition Already In Progress" (1979) by Gator Girl on Sunday, July 10th, 2016 at 3:10pm CT

This happened exactly on my birthday, but since I lived in Florida I didn't hear much about it until some time later.

I really don't believe disco was all that bad. The real problem was that it became so ridiculously popular that it was everywhere, and pretty much everything was being done as disco. There was a lot of garbage with a dance beat that was put out back then, and people just got sick of it. But that's no excuse for violence. It would have just faded away quietly in a matter of time if this hadn't happened.
