LMAO! Ahhhhhh yes.....Used Cars. One of my generation's most underrated classics. Never ceases to make me laugh. Comment posted by Pete on Saturday, May 29th 2010 at 10:53pm.
"Used Cars"; One of Spielberg's rare "failures".
(Personally, I liked it!)
Would make a great double feature at the Musicbox with "1941" Comment posted by ArmitageNLowell on Monday, May 31st 2010 at 10:48am.
"1941" was another great film that wasn't as appreciated as it should've been. John Belushi was great in that movie. Comment posted by Pete on Monday, May 31st 2010 at 11:38am.

Hold the presses - we started getting a difference of opinion in the WMAQ alumni group as to who the VO person actually was. I am trying to sort it all out but it seems likely that it is actually Jerry Mitchell, and not Henry "Hank" Cooke. More details as they become available on these FuzzMem stations, and on FuzzyMemories' Overnight.
Aha, Henry Cooke. How long was he with WMAQ? Ditto for Lorry Young.
As for Lee Hanna - he was brought in by parent network NBC to 'MAQ in 1976 to try to lift the station from last place, after propelling NYC sister station WNBC Channel 4 to the top with its 2-hour "NewsCenter4" newscast. Alas, for a variety of reasons, Mr. Hanna's tenure at WMAQ didn't work out and he was gone by 1978. Ron Powers, in the 1980 edition of his book "The Newscasters: The News Business As Show Business," had a section about Mr. Hanna's ill-fated WMAQ foray in his chapter of the ups and downs of WNBC's "starship newscast."
For some unexplained reason I received the Mork and Mindy game from some program that was giving all the kids toys for Christmas because so many apparently were poor (we weren't so I don't know why they included all kids). Anyway it was a card game and one of the creatures on the card was called oopadoo and we would call one of our dogs that.
