Except for the station call letters, dial position, studio location and transmitter reference, the sign-off script was identical to that used by WNYW in New York. Also interesting that WFLD's building address as of 1989 began with a number 205 - as WNYW's address is 205 East 67th Street, while WFLD's is 205 North Michigan Avenue. I wonder if the script for their sign-off changed at the point Field sold Ch. 32 to Metromedia, as this differs from the sign-off as in 1978 (and as also, in its essence, used by other Field stations, such as WKBS).

Also . . . as the "Office of General Manager" is mentioned, notice a shot of the "Michigan Plaza" complex, where WFLD moved in 1987 (they were/are in the taller of the buildings, 205 N. Michigan; the shorter building is 225 N. Michigan).

Typo alert: It says "Roger Cole - Capitol Records" in the description but it's actually "David Cole".

I'm 100% positive that the main voiceover is by Jack Wagner. He did many announcements and monorails spiels at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World. The Christmas Carol record is significant because it led to the development of the Mickey's Christmas Carol short in 1983.

I think you mean 1983 because that was the year "Mickey's Christmas Carol" was released in theaters along with the re-release of "The Rescuers."

Reminds you of "A Charlie Brown Christmas" where Charlie Brown brings back a little green Christmas tree but towards the end it becomes a nice Christmas tree.

Here in Detroit, we have just learned that Bill Bonds has passed away. He was one of my inspirations for studying Electronic Media. May he rest in peace.

I would love to have the paintings used for this. My luck they would cost an arm and 12 legs
