30 Years Ago Today

By early 1987 WLS was in the final months of using this version of the opening which it had used for so long. Time=Money, so they had to shorten it up a bit.

This aired on January 20, 1987.

And so does WABC-TV in New York City, WOKR-TV in Rochester, NY, KABC-TV in Los Angeles and WEWS-TV in Cleveland, OH using that same intro.

Actually, I don't recall seeing this package on KABC. A few other markets that did use it though include stations in Philadelphia (WPVI-TV) and Baltimore (WJZ-TV). Some of you might also remember seeing the first 5 seconds of this clip as part of Entertainment Tonight's opening intro back in 1982.

I never, in my life, saw a Farrell's, let alone ever been in one (especially when I was in the age range cited in this ad). Were there any in the New York metro area?

He was also "Little Earl" on "What's Happening?" and had a role in the Academy Awards sweeping "Meatballs Part 2".

Some of the "Old Time Movie" footage is from the 1926 Billy Bevan comedy HOBOKEN TO HOLLYWOOD...the clip also features Three Stooges nemesis Vernon Dent.

We had several Farrell's here in the Houston area; my sister worked at one near NASA. Nonstop noise and fun for everyone - she loved every minute of it!

Rick: The photos on http://www.boonsborovillage.com/ look like the place was built in the late 1960s, early 1970s. According to apartments.com, it was built in 1970.

Szake - Yes, but were those apartment buildings there 39 years ago? That's long ago enough that you have to at least ask the question. :-)

4715 Boonsboro Road is home to Boonsboro Village Apartments. There are 70 units in the 5 building complex, so maybe Jeff Taylor thinks that is a vague enough address to broadcast on TV... like if a Chicago reporter did that and said they live at 222 East Pearson, a building downtown with 709 condominiums in it.
