36 Years Ago Today

"Every day is Saturday night" in this disco-heavy booty-shakin' August 20, 1978 television ad for Just Pants. "Just Pants" - right across the street from "Virtuous Shoes". I've been told that despite the name Just Pants, they also sold shirts. Just Pants had 44 Chicagoland locations, and the Southridge, Northridge and Bay Shre Shopping Centers in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. FuzzyMemories.TV forum member HamptonRoadsTVFan writes, "Sounds like the instrumental parts were copying the Bee Gees' 'Stayin' Alive'."

Not sure who this guy is, but he claims to be the composer. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1AacnUY9RE

I did a tribute to Don this morning on my blog:

He was a dedicated professional and he will be missed.

"Ladies & gentlemen, it's with great admiration that I present for the 2,753rd time. The star of Jeopardy!... Art Fleming!" - Don Pardo on the last NBC telecast of Jeopardy! aired on Friday, January 3, 1975.

Rest in peace, Don Pardo. 96 years is such a blessing!

My guess is that they had a copy of Primal Scream sitting around the studio and used it for everything...

This early Chicago Blackhawks sports special is a fascinating look into one of Chicago's favorite sports franchises before the advent of 24/7 cable sports networks and the Blackhawks own Blackhawks TV on the internet. This practice session is also the precusor to the morning practice skating sessions that is occasionally seen these days on Comcast SportsNet.

RIP Lauren Bacall, whose film Dark Passage was the only one (of the 4 she teamed up with Bogart) WGN ran during this series of programs in that span.

A few days ago, a YouTube poster put up an entire edition of the 6pm "Eyewitness News" on WABC Channel 7 in New York City (see here) from January 8th 1981. That newscast was significant if only for the sports report - which dealt with the retirement of by-then New York Ranger Phil Esposito (who, as a 'Hawk, was seen in this part) as an active player, and comments from his brother Tony in which he spoke briefly about the retirement of another 'Hawk from this clip, Stan Mikita. (Because Espo and Mikita had served in the 'Hawks at various points in the former's and all through the latter's career, this item was Chicago-related in a back-handed way.)


Comment posted in CBS Network - In The News - "Acid Rain" (1983) by LaPrincess on Thursday, August 7th, 2014 at 10:46pm CT

I remember watching it often in between cartoons. I remember for example the one that was about the engagement of Prince Charles and Princess Diana (then Lady Diana)because it was something my paternal British grandmother always mentioned. I liked these news segments and I didn't feel talked down to. I was a smart child and hated anything that felt like it.

"In The News" didn't talk down to the kids. The features were almost what you got on the network news. They were well-done and concise, and the tone was that of someone explaining the news stories that the kids had heard while they were watching the news with their parents, something parents and kids used to do together.

Why does he keep touching the paper?
