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".

Doubtful Dick Clark and Ed McMahon could have used those MASH bloopers.

@ChrisBCritter- It has been in color the film lol.

@ER3017- Thanks for the info from the schedule. With a two-hour feature (The Court-Martial of Billy Mitchell) including a few commercial spots in between, it does take up a lot of time to force a station like WBBM-TV to cancel the sermonette.

CBS O&O's were notorious for their Late Show lineups circa 1979-1980 IMHO. In places like NYC, Philly and Chicago, it was most common. But in LA, it was variable and in St. Louis, schedules were "normal:" between 1 and 3 in the morning, especially on Sundays.

I just heard a song by Jane Olivor on MeTv radio!

Interesting - I remember once seeing The Court-Martial of Billy Mitchell aired in black and white around this date. Next time I saw it I was surprised to see it was in color! Wonder how that happened?

@Detroit4Chicago- It is the second showing of "The Late Show"; they were airing "The Court-Martial of Billy Mitchell" at 3:30am and probably signed off at about 5:30am. Here's the schedule.

I just Googled sotz for the hell of it, Fuzzy. I came across this and MAYBE this had something to do with it perhaps...

Just for the record, I'm not a huge drinker of coffee but my girlfriend is. I've learned to make a mean cup of coffee and a mean whiskey cocktail. BOTH will put hair on your boo boo. :-D

Some things are better left off of FB, Fuzzy....Just saying. ;-)

This seems as good a time and place as any to note that my dad grew up with his mom calling the coffee grounds "sotz". As in, "Hey, make sure you throw out the sotz before making new coffee". Why? No idea.
