WLS Channel 7 - Who's On Call? (Opening, Break & Excerpt, 1979)

Views: 3972

Here's the opening moments of a very little-known (thankfully) (and ultimately failed) pilot called Who's On Call? that aired on WLS Channel 7.

This show is almost like a parody of what a terrible sitcom would be. It has no listing on, and almost no listings on Google. I wouldn't be surprised if this was the only time it aired. Forbesy Russell - this is your time to shine again. ;-)


Opening titles with basic premis...

Views: 4395

Here's another segment from Screaming Yellow Theater - the original Svengoolie, which aired on WFLD Channel 32 from 1970-1973. Svengoolie was played by Jerry G. Bishop. By this point, if the clapboard and opening titles are of any indication, the SYT title had been eschewed in favor of Svengoolie.

This segment (designated #1-1 - Open), with guest Larry "Superjock" Lujack (who was holding court at the time at WCFL AM 1000 - which in those days was ho...

WGN Channel 9 - Len Johnson and the News (Part 2, 1965)

Views: 5783

Here's Part 2 (the final part) of an incredibly rare find - an edition of Len Johnson and the News on WGN Channel 9 from 1965! This was a forerunner to their overnight Night Beat newscast that ran from the late-sixties well into the 1980s.

You'll notice that this was during that awkward transition phase from black-and-white to color with most of the broadcast appearing in black-and-white, but then interspersed by random color commercials and a few color slides.

Featured in this part are Ione (Rolnick) from Prize Movie, anchor John Drury, and weatherman John Coleman - oh yes, and also Suzy Streetnoise, a...
