Saturday Night Live - Albert Brooks - "Fall Preview" (1979)

Views: 7970

Ok, this one doesn't have any local material in it but it's still worthy. It's a hilarious send-up of Television previews for some shows that certainly wouldn't have gotten the green light: Medical Season, The Three of Us, and Black Vet.

(cut a bit at the beginning because the guy taping thought at first it was a real commercial break promo!)

Albert Brooks is awesome. 8-)

(Also, sorry if this is officially released on DVD already - I just came a...

4-Way Cold Tablets (Commercial, 1965)

Views: 3294

Here's a vintage commercial for 4-Way Cold Tablets, showing the difference between it and a regular cold capsule in terms of the relief that is offered - 4-Way providing relief for nasal congestion, aches and pains, sluggishness and fever, as opposed to the cold capsule only offering relief for the first-named of these symptoms.

Voiceover by Phil Tonken (longtime staff announcer for WOR Channel 9 in New York).

This aired on local Chicago TV early Friday, March 5t...

WPWR Channel 50 - "Off The Air Testing" (1990?)

Views: 3240

Here's something probably not very interesting unless you like color bars and static - found this at the end of a tape long after a movie had finished and the station was off the air for the night - looks like they were doing some sort of testing - picture goes from a strange color bars with a black square in the middle, to static, then a Station ID slide, then more static and then the color bars again. This went on for a long time but this is the most exciting 6 minutes of it. ;-)

WFLD Channel 32 - Son of Svengoolie - "The 3-D Movie" (Opening, 1982)

Views: 2238

Here's the open from Son of Svengoolie episode Number 158 - the famous 3-D Movie - Revenge of the Creature! A great (slightly disappointing) moment in Chicago Broadcasting History! ;-)

I included the first couple minutes of the movie so you could see a little bit of the 3D effect - not so much during the titles, but as the movie starts you can see even without the glasses how the picture looks a little different. Not really sure how this was supposed to work with a black and...

WCIU Channel 26 - Eddie Korosa's Polka Party - "Behind-The-Scenes Glimpse" (1979)

Views: 2003

During an airing of Eddie Korosa's Polka Party on WCIU Channel 26, the camera turns during a rendition of "All I Need Is You" to show some of the behind-the-scenes set-up. Thought you technical junkies out there might enjoy this little clip.

You can just make out the slide for the Baby Doll Polka Club on one of the monitors. :-)

Note: This recording was unfortunately made in Black & White even though the original broadcast was in color.
