Lois Griffin voiceover? Comment posted by MST3K1993 on Monday, September 29th 2008 at 9:29pm.
Piggy-backing off of MST's statement:
Now we know where Alex Borstein got the voice for Trisha Takanawa, Asian reporter. Comment posted by Melk on Tuesday, September 30th 2008 at 7:49am.
No, the voiceover in the commercial might be Eartha Kitt. Comment posted by dth1971 on Tuesday, September 30th 2008 at 8:15am.
Funny, I thought it would've been Tammy Grimes. Comment posted by W.B. on Tuesday, September 30th 2008 at 12:17pm.
The voiceover IS Eartha Kitt. Close your eyes and think of the black Catwoman in the Batman TV show. Comment posted by NuBnPrnc2k on Tuesday, September 30th 2008 at 12:17pm.
That would be pretty amazing if it really was her. I have no other guesses. So, I suppose we'll never know for sure... (crosses arms, waits for answer to magically appear) Comment posted by FuzzyMemories on Tuesday, September 30th 2008 at 2:00pm.
This was a great album, but I forgot they did a commercial for it. Now that I think of it, commercials promoting albums, like this one, were big at one time. Got any more? Comment posted by ro46214 on Tuesday, September 30th 2008 at 5:31pm.
The album was released in September 1977. My 13th birthday, the month we moved into the house I am still living at, and they month I started Grade 8, and then this album! Peg was one of my favorite songs! Comment posted by visaman on Wednesday, October 1st 2008 at 3:57am.
It appears that this is Eartha Kitt

Today, she does the voice of Yzma/Amzy on Disney's Emperor's New School. Comment posted by ChitownTVFan on Monday, October 6th 2008 at 11:31am.
I believe this album had one of my favorite songs: Black Cow. Comment posted by sugarbear522 on Thursday, February 26th 2009 at 3:39pm.

ABC Records was taken over by MCA Records in 1979. In 2003, MCA Records was absorbed in to Geffen Records. Geffen now has the entire ABC and MCA Records catalog. One of the best LP's by Steely Dan. You might find a lot of these in thrift stores. Comment posted by Betamax75 on Saturday, April 20th 2013 at 9:01am.

ChitownTVFan - Yes, but that "broadcast" you saw was a re-creation. They created it from scratch and put in period-appropriate commercials. No one knows for sure what actual commercials aired during the real 10-9-71 Creature Features Wolfman airing though.
Seeing that shot of the studios at 0:47 made me wonder if the station is there today. Turns out they moved to neighboring Johnson City in 1992.
50 Front St. in Binghamton was the Sheraton Inn, built in 1959. WNBF-TV/WBNG occupied a portion of the ground floor of the hotel. Dick Clark broadcast his Saturday night variety show from the back lot of the hotel on May 30, 1959 before about 1,000 teenage fans. This was the first time a network telecast originated in Binghamton... and it wouldn't surprise me if it was the last! The station has a gallery of historical photographs on its website.
May 19 1979 By Suzanne Barnes Cedar Rapids Gazette entertainment editor
The setting for "Two Guys from Muck" is a sleazy weekly scandal sheet. Currently in production, the one-hour NBC comedy stars Adam Arkin ("Busting Loose") and Rick Casorla. They will play a photographer- reporter team.
Graham Jarvis, who plays John Ehrlichman in "Blind Ambition" this week and who originally gained fame as Charlie Haggers on "Mary Hartman,
Mary Hartman," also stars as Davis, the crusty editor of Muck. (Why are TV's editors always crusty? Ours aren't.)
Rounding out the cast is Gwen Humble as Cybil Sanders, a rival reporter for the posh Beautiful People magazine.
The story follows Buzz (an aspiring journalist who hopes to one day win a Pulitzer Prize) and photographer Louie (grateful to editor Davis for his job)
as they are assigned an interview with a slightly offbeat museum guard with a bullet in his brain. They eventually become involved in a robbery of Cleopatra's jewels masterminded by a mysterious Mr.Big.
