I agree Pete, something seems off with his singing. Personally, I think it's pretty bad. Reminds me of amateur night.

Eight is Enough was in the middle of its 3rd season at the time.

It's pretty obvious Willie is lip-syncing, and I doubt Dinah's band was playing behind him. But then, you knew that...

Benny Goodman grew up in Chicago; Wikipedia says around Maxwell Street.

I have three copies of this one. Two on 8-Track. You should not be surprised.

What happened to the ETC?

Added ending voiceover info (hearing this at a remote FedEx Office location, the voice at the end clearly sounded like Mr. Reynolds, and besides, a YouTuber who saw this clip on that site, name of Ryan Zwolinski [to whom the hat tip], apprised us of this).

AMNews and SMC; One of Inn and Around's incarnations was also a club called the Grand Bandstand around 1984 or so. On Sunday evenings, it was open to all ages for a few hours (I'm guessing between 5-10pm) and didn't serve alcohol during that time frame. I went there a few times when I was a youngster.

I'm curious - from which of the Chicago TV stations were these Starbeat ads produced? I'm sure RCA TK-27/28 film chains were used for the slide transmission . . .

Fuzzy: I wish you found another Kenny Rogers mail order record album TV commercial from the same early 1980's time for the 2 record set "Gold Dust and Gold Mine" featuring songs from the Kenny Rogers First Edition era.

$50,000 a day? lol No, that's $50,000 a year for the next 20 years until 2002 for a total of $1 Million.

Found this photo on a MySpace page of a band called "Passion" playing at Saints & Sinners:

The other big question: Which station produced this ad? If WBBM, then its cuts from one slide to another differed significantly from the clunky "fade-out--fade-in" transitions for which New York sister WCBS Channel 2 was famous for decades, from the '50's well to the '80's. But then, practically every Chicago station, I.I.N.M., had RCA TK-27 film chains through which we all saw these slides (and films), and a few by this time may've even gotten the newer TK-28's.
