Ah, Pat Harrington Jr... Comedically ahead of his time. He was born before Benny Hill, right?

Most Traks went out of business and were replaced by Advance Autoparts.
Yep! Ol' Pat's character of Dwaine F. Schneider was a hoot. Of course, he can't get away with the smokes in his sleeve though (that P.C. thing that is supposed to make everyone pure, elite, and perfect).

SAH-WEET! I haven't seen a Track Auto Commercial with Schnieder since I was a kid...thanks for posting. I bought a pair of cheap floormats from Track Auto when it had a going out of business sale over at the Columbia Plaza in Hammond circa 2001 I think....and I thought of Schnieder too...tears

P.S. Modified clip description to correct the spelling of the esteemed editorial director.

Aha, Henry Cooke. How long was he with WMAQ? Ditto for Lorry Young.

As for Lee Hanna - he was brought in by parent network NBC to 'MAQ in 1976 to try to lift the station from last place, after propelling NYC sister station WNBC Channel 4 to the top with its 2-hour "NewsCenter4" newscast. Alas, for a variety of reasons, Mr. Hanna's tenure at WMAQ didn't work out and he was gone by 1978. Ron Powers, in the 1980 edition of his book "The Newscasters: The News Business As Show Business," had a section about Mr. Hanna's ill-fated WMAQ foray in his chapter of the ups and downs of WNBC's "starship newscast."

Comment posted in Asch and Associates - "Bill Cassidy Commercial Demo Reel" (1975?) by Loyal32Fan on Sunday, June 19th, 2016 at 6:26pm CT

I remember drinking those diet sodas back in the '70s. They had a nasty aftertaste, almost tasted like metal.


Comment posted in Asch and Associates - "Bill Cassidy Commercial Demo Reel" (1975?) by W.B. on Friday, June 17th, 2016 at 4:19am CT

In some ways, the Asch logo is reminiscent of a portion of the logo for WNET Channel 13 in Newark, NJ / New York City, as used from c.1972 to about 1977. I wonder if the same designer did both logos?


Comment posted in Mattel - "Mork & Mindy Toys" (Commercial, 1979) by LaPrincess on Wednesday, June 15th, 2016 at 9:27pm CT

For some unexplained reason I received the Mork and Mindy game from some program that was giving all the kids toys for Christmas because so many apparently were poor (we weren't so I don't know why they included all kids). Anyway it was a card game and one of the creatures on the card was called oopadoo and we would call one of our dogs that.


Comment posted in WBBM Channel 2 - So You Think You Know Chicago? (Part 2, 1974) by OldTVNut on Wednesday, June 15th, 2016 at 8:05pm CT

Why is it when I watch this, I end up thinking of the Weird Al Yankovic video "I Lost On Jeopardy"?

You have to admit, the man had a distinctive voice.

However, that wig was specifically made for radio.
