SelecTV (End Of Film & Preview, 1981?)

Here is some footage from Milwaukee's version of ON TV and Spectrum - SelecTV. It aired over WCGV Channel 24.

Includes the ending to "Skatetown U.S.A." followed by a preview for the film "Used Cars".

Not sure when this aired, but based on the films I'd say 1981 is a good guess.

LMAO! Ahhhhhh yes.....Used Cars. One of my generation's most underrated classics. Never ceases to make me laugh.

"Used Cars"; One of Spielberg's rare "failures".
(Personally, I liked it!)
Would make a great double feature at the Musicbox with "1941"

"1941" was another great film that wasn't as appreciated as it should've been. John Belushi was great in that movie.

In 2007, the script was updated. 47 C.F.R 11.54 says:

EAS #2
"This is an Emergency Action Notification requested by the White House. All EAS participants will follow activation procedures in the EAS Operating Handbook for a national level emergency. The President of the United States or his representative will shortly deliver a message over the Emergency Alert System."

"We interrupt our programming; this is a national emergency."

"This is an Emergency Action Notification. All broadcast stations and cable systems shall transmit this Emergency Action Notification Message. This station has interrupted its regular programming at the request of the White House to participate in the Emergency Alert System. During this emergency, most stations will remain on the air providing news and information to the public in assigned areas. This is (station call name). We will continue to serve the (EAS Local Area name) area. If you are not in this Local Area, you should tune to stations providing news and information for your Local Area. You are listening to the Emergency Alert System serving the (EAS Local Area name) area.
Do not use your telephone. The telephone lines should be kept
open for emergency use. REPEAT."

"We interrupt our programming at the request of the White House. This is the Emergency Alert System. All normal programming has been discontinued during this emergency. This is (station call name). This station will continue furnishing news, official information and instructions for the (EAS Local Area name) area. If you are not in (EAS Local Area name) area, you should tune to stations providing news and information for your area. It is important that you listen carefully to announcements
from the station in your local area. REPEAT."

EAS #3
"This concludes operations under the Emergency Alert System. All normal programming operations may now resume."

"This concludes operations under the Emergency Alert System. All normal programming operations may now resume. REPEAT ANNOUNCEMENT"

State and Local
"We interrupt this program because of a (State or Local) emergency. Important information will follow."

Monthly Test:
"This is a coordinated monthly test of the broadcast stations of your area. We are testing equipment that can quickly warn you during emergencies. If this had been an actual emergency such as (insert types of emergencies that may occur in the geographic area), an official message would have followed the alert tone. This concludes this test of the Emergency Alert System.

Seeing this and the other clips, is it my imagination or was WGN's Saturday Matinee, by this point, the Windy City's equivalent to NYC sister station WPIX Channel 11's Sunday Morning Movie which, from the 1970's into the mid-to-late '80's, was likewise an "Abbott and Costello Film Festival" in all but name?

Man, how cynical I was before I had kids! The commercial isn't that bad. And I still have birthday cards from when I was a kid; they bring back memories. :-)

JFTaylor - Very cool, thanks for coming! I will update the video description. Tell me, did you save any airchecks as old as this from your work?

I actually lived at 4715 Boonsboro Road Boonsboro Village Apartments. Just about everyone in Lynchburg knew that. Glad it wasn't Chicago!

I'm the voiceover in the news preview (voiceover by ??) with teases and opening titles (without theme music - imagine that!), with wide shot of news set (voiceover by ??).

In 1977, there were only 6 members of the news staff... News Director/Anchor - Stan Jayson, Weather - Charles Middleton, Sports - John Buren, Reporters - Jeff Taylor & Jennifer Smith and a Photographer.

Wow, lots of new night owl stuff starting to surface!! Fuzzy, I knew there was more, and I'm sure there's some more yet to be found!!

I had Digger. Why I had a fake dog when I had two dogs (one of which I could walk as a child)is something that makes no sense.

@Detroit4Chicago - You got it - only difference is there's no repeat at the end. :-)

My sneak preview guess of EBS Cart #3: "This concludes operations under the Emergency Broadcast System. All broadcast stations may now resume normal broadcast operations. I repeat....."

This is scary. 1985, the last throes of the Cold War. MX and Pershing II missiles. Our launch sites in WEST GERMANY. Before perestroika and glasnost. If you want to get really scared watch "Threads." Better yet, don't watch "Threads."
