SelecTV - "Short Subject, Previews & IDs" (1981?)

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

Short Subject opening (I edited the short out because it ran 20 minutes)

"Next" SelecTV bumper followed by preview for "Stone Cold Dead"

"Coming Soon" SelecTV bumper followed by preview for "Bruce Lee Film Festival"

SelecTV station ID for WCGV-TV Channel 24 Milwaukee

Brief Intermission - Please Stand By (?)

SelecTV animated ID

"Feature Presentation" SelecTV bumper and opening of "Stone Cold Dead"

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

Wow. I've never seen Paul Williams in anything other than Smokey & The Bandit. I've also never seen Belinda J. Montgomery in anything other than Miami Vice.

Also, during the Please Stand By portion where the signal is scrambled, the movie Motel Hell is mentioned. Great horror flick. Anyone seen it?

We need some more Bruce Lee Film Festivals in this world as well.

I remember watching "Stone Cold Dead" on WGBO Channel 66 in the late 80s. I recently recorded this off of Comcast's Impact Action On-Demand which is under the Free Movies section.

@Pete: I have seen "Motel Hell".

Regarding the airdate - I'm unable to confirm ours right now, so you may in fact be correct. I will check into this. Thanks for pointing it out; I'd say our airdate listings overall are still at least 99.5% correct though. :-)

On the East Coast, where Dolly Madison is not sold, the sponsor is Peter Paul Cadbury candy bars.

This aired in Fall 1981, not March 16, 1981.

What was the WCFL "Bribo" contest like?

On 0:00 you'll see a brief snippet of WFLD channel 32 cartoons.

Last week Thursday, there was a speaker at my school, who is a recent Wall of Fame Inductee named Don Smarto and he mentioned Giancana as his ''Uncle''. And when I told him about these videos, he would be happy to see them.

MildApplause - This is another occasion when I wish we had Facebook style "Like" buttons on comments because I like your comment. :-) I too have wondered about the stories behind the people. Once in a while I get little glimpses like getting contacted by the kid in the Kraft Macaroni and Cheese commercial, or the little girl in the Jewel commercial, etc.

Every time I see an actor or actress in an old TV commercial, and it's someone who I don't recognize and who maybe never "made it," I always wonder what that person's story ultimately turned out to be.

Like the two ladies here in the Sani-Flush ad. Both very attractive, and especially the brunette had some very endearingly cute and memorable characteristics. At the time both were probably thrilled to have gotten to do a national commercial, but then... ??? Work in theater? Go into writing? Go back to college and learn another trade?

We all have to ultimately find our own way in life. Of all these old commercials, and each of the actors in them, probably many have a fascinating and untold story.

Willie reminds me not just a "hobo," but he sure a lot looks like Foster Brooks.


Comment posted in WLS Channel 7 - ABC News Special Report - "Death of Bobby Sands" (1981) by Detroit4Chicago on Sunday, September 21st, 2014 at 7:57pm CT

I remember vividly this bulletin; it was also a period when I was preoccupied with the notion of death of human beings. I think we changed the channel from watching M*A*S*H and happened to see this. And this came on.

There were reports of Bobby Sands' hunger strike and it was all over the news. When I saw this bulletin, I was asking a lot of unresolved questions thereafter.

It was hard to understand at the time.

A few days later, another IRA member, Francis Hughes, also died of a similar hunger strike. And another, which whose name I can't recall, died soon after also.

Man, I remember this too well....
