39 Years Ago Today

Here's a partial segment from Noonbreak on WBBM Channel 2, introduced by Bob Wallace, and featuring a Weather report by the late, great Harry Volkman.

At the beginning we see the tail end of a story, then Bob's intro, and then the weather report. Bob gives the stock market update, and then we see a complete commercial break -

Commercial: Holsum bread

Political Ad: Alex Seith for Senate

Commercial: Ponds cold cream / Ponds Light

Intro to next segment featuring Lee Phillips and some kids playing with what looks like a Mego Superman doll. :-)

This aired on Wednesday, October 18, 1978.

David H: If you look at an ad from the same campaign a year earlier http://www.fuzzymemories.tv/index.php?c=1467 , the numbers do NOT start with 555, but 888, 8 and 7.

Interesting that when you see the closeups of the phone and the hands pressing the buttons, they always start with 555- , the default phone number choice used for all phone numbers on TV shows from this era.

I'm not sure if it's been said before, this must've come from a U-Matic tape.
