The glory days up to 1984 when WTTW had TV Auctions to support Public Television funds or something like that.

Is there any clips after the video or the recording is cut?

I love how that Jim Sutera guy has to loudly crinkle his bag of peanuts (or potato chips or whatever it is) and then stuff one in his mouth while he's talking. That's real class!

On July 12, 2014, it will mark the 35th anniversary of Disco Demolition event. Even though the second game was a forfeit, luckily nobody got hurt or died as a result of the melee.

I'm calling on BS on this commercial. I gave Dustin Hoffman a Tootsie (Roll) once, he punched me in the nose and filed a restraining order.

That toll collector looks a little like Dennis Franz...

Comment posted in National Pork Producers Council - "Pork: The Other Meat Slogan" (Commercial, 1983) by Dth1971 on Sunday, April 13th, 2014 at 8:55pm CT

I know some other pork slogans:
"Tender Lovin' Fare" (late 1970's)
"It's Pork Cookout Time" (circa 1980)
And for the Canadian market: "Put Pork on Your Fork" (circa 1980)

Of course I remember the "America, you're leaning on pork" jingle in 1983.
