Love that song! You should have a category of iconic phone number songs: this one, Empire Carpets, Lincoln Carpets, CET Television... (Interesting that many of them are carpet or carpet cleaning companies.)

Before this came along you had to have your furniture cleaned in a big cleaning plant?

Seriously, come on.

Great jingle though.

Seems strange now, but I can remember my mom sending the couch and chairs out.

There's that McLean Stevenson-type voice again!

A friend of mine had a portly Little League coach w/ the last name of Hudson and said all the guys used to sing: "Hudson weighs 2-700!"

I love how a lot of commercials from years ago used those basic slides- sometimes it would be an illustration of some sort, or one listing a products attributes and amazing price- or as with Boushelle, a great company logo, address and phone number. Very simple and direct, and those are the commercials that usually stand out in your memory.

I remember this commerical coming on Channel 9 during the Saturday afternoon movies.

He will be missed.


Comment posted in WMAQ Channel 5 - Off the Wall (Opening & Break, 1977) by FieldGal44 on Wednesday, September 26th, 2018 at 7:04pm CT

Off the Wall was just one of four college-themed sitcoms that sank over the next two years, though this one was a year before Animal House. In 1979, AH ripoffs Brothers & Sisters, Delta House, and Co-Ed Fever would all bomb, with the latter lasting a whopping single episode like this stinker.


Comment posted in WGN Channel 9 - "Comedy Tonight!" (Promo, 1979) by FieldGal44 on Tuesday, September 25th, 2018 at 2:17pm CT

"Comedy Tonight" was adapted for a Stove Top commercial in 1986.

1:18 Y'know, if you really have to store your leftover crepes in the freezer...


Comment posted in WSNS Channel 44 - "DePaul Basketball" (Station ID, 1978) by FieldGal44 on Friday, September 21st, 2018 at 12:36am CT

The 1977-78 DePaul team was led by the mighty Dave Corzine, who went pro after that season and, of course, would spend seven years with the Bulls.

I ate way too much Quaker instant oatmeal growing up. The raisins & spice was my favorite.

Good Lord, this is not the way to sell a radio station. As Fuzzy says, utterly generic, not to mention redundant ("old great classics"). What genre are they selling?? Plus, the camera is right in his face like an '80s PSA, and he sounds like he's hawking something on a street corner. I'm surprised he didn't start by saying "Psst! Hey, kid!"

I may be wrong, but that mic might look like the Electro-Voice EV-667 . . .
