WTTW Channel 11 - Bleacher Bums (Part 1, 1984)

In honor of opening day for the Chicago Cubs, here's the long-unseen WTTW Channel 11 production of Bleacher Bums. Originally produced in 1979, and set in 1977, this broadcast is from 1984 (the last time it was shown on TV), when the Cubs had a good run at the pennant. Enjoy!

And if you're interested, be sure to visit friend of the museum Kasey Ignarski's website where you can purchase his book, Cubs By The Numbers - A Complete Team History of the Chicago Cubs by Uniform Number.

This aired on local Chicago TV on Saturday, September 29th 1984 during the 7pm to 8:30pm timeframe.

The Bleacher Bums was on WTTW in 1977, not 1984.

It was rebroadcast in Sept. 1984 and this is from that rebroadcast.

In another sense, a belated recognition of Mr. Lewis' recent death.

Comment posted in WLS Channel 7 - Eyewitness News - "Weather & Break" (1973) by W.B. on Saturday, August 12th, 2017 at 12:13pm CT

On YT a user put up a clip from an overnight "World News Now" from 1995 with excerpts from a 1970 edition of WABC Channel 7's (New York) "Eyewitness News." Roger Grimsby (who died before that aircheck) was the main anchor, but this was several months before Bill Beutel joined him at the desk; co-anchoring with him that evening was Bill Aylward (who was filling in for Grimsby's nominal co-anchor of the time, Tom Dunn). Notable is that on the end, is an excerpt of a weather forecast from their resident weatherman of the time, Tex Antoine (who was as iconic in NYC as WLS's John Coleman was in Chicago). And you think this weather forecast is primitive by today's standards . . . ?
