WFLD Channel 32 - "Festival Of Television" (Promo, 1978)
Here's a promo for the "Festival of Television" and their first night of special programming on WFLD Channel 32. Here are Chris Tuft's recollections:
"It was a weeknight hour of 1950s sitcoms. Monday (June 19th 1978) was (as noted in the promo) "The Jack Benny Show" (at 10:30pm) and "My Hero" (at 11pm). Tuesday was "Topper" and "The Gale Storm Show", Wednesday was "Love That Bob" and "How to Marry a Millionaire". Thursday was "Bachelor Father" and "People's Choice." Friday was "The Great Gildersleeve" and "December Bride". The Festival with different programs played on Field Communications stations. The station ID promos used music from the 1950s. No zooming WFLD bumpers, just a card with a picture of the lead actor inside a star. The music in the Festival's closing came from Bill Conti's theme to the film "An Unmarried Woman."
The promo features noted Disc Jockey, actor and voiceover artist, Terry McGovern. Chris adds, "Toward the end of the run, the Festival aired without McGovern's introductions.
This likely aired a few days before Monday, June 19th 1978.
