Lois Griffin voiceover?

Piggy-backing off of MST's statement:

Now we know where Alex Borstein got the voice for Trisha Takanawa, Asian reporter.

No, the voiceover in the commercial might be Eartha Kitt.

Funny, I thought it would've been Tammy Grimes.

The voiceover IS Eartha Kitt. Close your eyes and think of the black Catwoman in the Batman TV show.

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)

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?

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!

Today, she does the voice of Yzma/Amzy on Disney's Emperor's New School.

I believe this album had one of my favorite songs: Black Cow.

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.

That's definitely NOT Lisa Whelchel!!!! Such overacting in this commercial. Obviously they were hired for their looks and not their acting skills.


Comment posted in WMAQ Channel 5 - The Richard Pryor Special Tornado Warning (1977) by ChrisBCritter on Tuesday, August 25th, 2015 at 2:45pm CT

Checking the Tornado History Project, there was only one tornado listed for this date in Illinois. It was a pretty big one: an F4 which touched down at 7:20 PM near Atlanta, IL and ran northeast over seven miles along I-55; luckily no lives were lost and only two injuries.

No, I don't think that is her.

As a kid I could often hear my parents watching TV in the other room while I was in bed. I remember hearing the music at 2:25. Was that the "news theme" that Channel 9 news used since this aired on channel 9?

Is the blonde Lisa Whelchel?

This made me curious to know who did the invent the first clock: the full name is Benjamin Banneker.

Is Herb Hugo the guy from up? The resemblance is uncanny.

Pretty awesome seeing Gene Siskel with hair and the porn stache there.

Absolutely one of the worst video games I have ever played. I own 2 copies of this dreck too!


Comment posted in WMAQ All News 67 - "We'll Give You The World" (Commercial, 1988) by GalagaFleetCommander on Monday, August 17th, 2015 at 9:12pm CT

WINS in New York started this concept years ago and brought it to Chicago as mentioned when Group W bought the station from NBC. I remember watching "Goodfellas" for the first time and the scene in which Henry Hill's in the shower WINS broke in with the "We'll give you 22 minutes..." music and told of the Lufthansa heist in the movie. That's when I knew WMAQ didn't originate the concept.
