Ah! Laser Tag! I always had mine set in wide beam (or "shotgun"/wuss mode) because I was a lousy shot. (It also helped covering up the sensor on your vest)

I had photon it sucked and it cost a fortune.

Oooh! The G.I. Joe commercial break bumpers are just how I remember them.

That sounds like Peter Cullen at the begining! Scratch that! THAT IS PETER CULLEN!!

Yep. Peter Cullen. Venger himself. He's had quite a long career.

I thought that was him but I wasn't sure. Peter also did voices in the Gobots, and so did Arthur Burghardt.

Didn't anyone notice George Clooney in the Facts of Life promo?

Comment posted in KWHY Channel 22 - SelecTV - "Promo & Sign-Off" (1982?) by VintageCanada on Wednesday, September 10th, 2014 at 5:51pm CT

I got Blow-Up watched last Thursday. Great film. David Hemmings was outstanding, as was Vanessa Redgrave and Sarah Miles, and pretty much the entire cast. A very artful masterpiece.

And for the record, the other Sarah Miles movie I watched earlier this summer was the 1978 version of the Big Sleep with Robert Mitchum and James Stewart.

Oh, I do have The Night of the Hunter from 1955 on DVD starring Mitchum and Lillian Gish, but have yet to watch it.

Two days later, the Cubs played against the Los Angeles Dodgers and lost to them 9-6 and on May the 5th, the Dodgers beat them out 14-12.

He will be missed!

That's actually very well written! Laughed out loud more than once.

FACT: Moving your head like Jane Byrne will give you whiplash.

Roy Leonard was a great Chicago media personality. He was the perfect person to replace Frazier Thomas on Family Classics back in the 80s. I really enjoyed his work over the years. He will be missed. RIP Roy Leonard!!

Very sorry to hear about Roy's passing. He had a daily talk show in the 1970's where he interviewed actors and musicians that were passing through. He did an interview with some of the members of the band Chicago over one Thanksgiving weekend that I remember well. He also did a show for WGN radio, I think, a few years back. My condolences to his family.

I used to work at 111 E. Wacker, also known as One Illinois Center (at least it was in 1978). My first job out of college.


Comment posted in CBS Network - Trapper John, M.D. (Promo, 1979) by HUdson 3-2700 on Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014 at 1:45pm CT

Wayne Rogers played Trapper John in "M*A*S*H," didn't he? So the guy who replaced him on the show is endorsing it... maybe it should have been "BJ Hunnicut, MD."

It's been 35 years since she became the 1st female mayor of Chicago and when Washington sworn-in as the next mayor of Chicago in '83, Byrne looked on. They had an photo published in the Sun-Times when Washington passed away on November 25, 1987 during Thanksgiving week.
