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".

Check out the technician fleeing the shot at 3:45 as the Camaro comes into view! Lucky his yellow shirt matched the car to help camouflage his exit...

Am I the only person who thinks that Jerry Taft should be surprised on his next birthday with this clip?

Can't beat the million-dollar sound of a jingle performed by the Ron Hicklin Singers. Even after 40 years, "At McDonaaaald's..." still sticks to the brain. It's been so long since a memorable uptempo jingle has been used in a national ad campaign, using one would stand out against all the maudlin and futuristic aural wallpaper used today.

If I'm not mistaken, that's a billboard for Ronrico rum visible through the window at 0:35. Even though no one at home was going to be putting this spot on "pause" in 1975, it surprises me they let that slip into something so tightly produced.

T.K. - You're correct - I hadn't noticed that, but this is the last regular appearance of Frazier Thomas on Family Classics that has yet been found. I don't have the opening for "The Black Swan" but I do have the last half hour or so including the complete ending, some of which you see here. I'll have to give this a proper posting at a later time.

Less than two months before the death of Frazier Thomas... am I right in that this is the latest of his regular appearances to have surfaced so far? (I'm not counting the clips used in the retrospective stories in April.)

The intro music to the car show sounds like it came from this catchy number used on the CHEK-TV Friday Night Movie in 1981. WGN's recording sounds like it came from someone holding a mic up to a record player in their basement, however. I'd love to hear it in full.

She sounds as if she's doing an ad-lib news report on NPR's All Things Considered.

Correct me if I am wrong BUT is that Dee Wallace at 0:29??

Pete: "The guy that does the V/O for Forensic Files?"

Yep. Still going after all these years!

You're correct, Detroit4Chicago. The Ocean Catch was the name.
