35 Years Ago Today

Here's a commercial for National Clothing Fashions spotlighting the latest disco fashions, and accompanied by (what else?) disco music. (They seemed to have a thing for disco-themed outfits, given that they'd do another such ad the next year.) With an offer for a store credit card which one could get in 90 seconds. Stores at 26 West Randolph, 3138 North Randolph and 6348 South Halsted.

"National Clothes!"

This aired on September 15, 1979.

Didn't Steve Dahl already kill disco with his 'Disco Demolition Night' at Comiskey Park months earlier?

Yes. Yes he did during the ChiSox night game on Thursday, July 12, 1979.

Yes, Steve Dahl had killed disco a month earlier at a White Sox game, but there are still some people who refuse to believe that disco is indeed dead.

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.

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

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."
