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.

Here is what I mean by WNBC Channel 4's protocol for sign-off news (and sign-offs in general) as of 1979. Bill Rippe was the newsreader (and voiceover). That is what I mean by their newscast slide on sign-off news as "WNBC-TV News." Mr. Rippe and others at the time characterized such sign-off editions as "a report of late news, sports and weather from NewsCenter4."

Comment posted in WLUP - The Loop FM 98 - "Baby Boom" (Commercial, 1984) by LaPrincess on Monday, March 12th, 2018 at 5:03pm CT

I was watching Windy City Live this morning and Mancow was on. Whether one likes him or not, he said something that resonated with me and he said it wasn't that surprising. He then mentioned rock is pretty much dead and he sadly might have a point. Look at most of the most popular acts today, how many are actually "rock"? I'm not sure. Even if one believes there is still a format, listen to new rock stations. I mentioned this on Facebook to a few of you, but I've been listening to Q101 more and more and so many of the bands today sound like bands of yesteryear. I mentioned that I thought two songs were done by Duran Duran but they weren't (nothing against Duran Duran, I love them, but we don't need bands that sound like them when they are still around). Rock music is becoming more cookie cutter. Yeah other genres are worse (country and rap are vile), but I expect more from rock because it's bands playing their own instruments and writing their own songs. I am what is called a rockist, and make no apologies. I don't really like mainstream pop or hip hop or country or most of today's music. I like alternative and classic rock, I love guitar and drums.

Well, it's been a great 41 years.

If the sale/demise of The Loop isn't evidence that terrestrial radio is on the decline, I do not know what is!
Looks like the only area classic rock stations left (as of this date) are The Drive (97.1 and 96.9 FM) and The Fox (103.9 PM).
I guess this is because of the rise in popularity of on-line radio services like AccuRadio (my personal favorite), Spotify, Pandora, TuneIn, iHeart, Sirius/XM (pretty good if you have the money), etc. that pretty much has some advantages over terrestrial radio: less commercials, less talk, and some services can let you listen to stations from "out of market" which gives listeners more choice.
The listeners as well as the personalities are aging!
Times they are a changing!
Don't be sad that it is over...
Be glad that it was there and you were a part of it!
Thanks, WLUP/Loop.
Cheers.

Oh, and the price tag for WLUP's sale? $21.5 million.


Comment posted in WLUP - The Loop FM 98 - "Lorelei's Rock Show" (Commercial, 1980) by VintageCanada on Tuesday, March 6th, 2018 at 5:55pm CT

As everyone in Chicago knows now, WLUP has been sold to a Christian-based company, and by now, the classic rock era of this station has come to an end. Heard about the news this morning.

David Ogden Stiers (October 31, 1942-March 3, 2018)

Peoria, Illinois born actor, voice actor and musician David Ogden Stiers has passed away at the age of 75. More recently known as Reverend Gene Purdy on "The Dead Zone," Mr. Stiers was also the narrator for "American Experience" and voiced cartoons such as Lilo & Stitch, Winnie the Pooh, Beauty and the Beast and other Disney projects. Here he is as Major Charles Winchester on "M*A*S*H" from season 8, episode 22 "Dreams" which originally aired on CBS (locally WBBM-TV channel 2) on February 18, 1980 and rerun on WFLD Channel 32 on September 9, 1981.

Wonder if any of the Metromedia stations ran "SoS" in a manner not too dissimilar to some Field stations when that company ran 32 (think WKBS Channel 48 and KBHK Channel 44) . . . I know, given the movie skeins New York's WNEW Channel 5 had on Saturdays (including "Drive-In Movie"), they would've never aired "SoS" . . .
