I remember Grover's irreverent radio commercials on Bob Collins' WGN radio show.

Irving Park Road - Now "Chicago Joe's."
St. Charles Road - Now split between:

Building & Remodeling Store
Michael Esposito DDS
Gary Johnson DDS
R L Business Services
State Farm Insurance - Kathy Peterson

I guess they should have become famous sooner.

Now that I'm now a local Las Vegan, I see Anderson Dairy trucks all the time. I wonder if they still supply the Mac & Dons out here...

I'd swear that 3rd guy with the tie was none other than a certain Gunnery Sargeant from "Full Metal Jacket". The one & only Mr. R. Lee Ermey


Comment posted in Woolworth - "Dollar Days" (Commercial, 1989) by Dth1971 on Tuesday, April 14th, 2015 at 6:58pm CT

In the opening of the commercial is the store front of a Woolworth store in some shopping mall with 1970's-1983 Woolworth logo signage.


Comment posted in McDonald's - "We Do It All For You" (Commercial, 197?) by Dth1971 on Tuesday, April 14th, 2015 at 6:57pm CT

1975 is my guess.


Comment posted in McDonald's - "Nobody Can Do It Like McDonald's Can" (Commercial, 197?) by Dth1971 on Tuesday, April 14th, 2015 at 6:56pm CT

This is really from 1979, I know it.
