Views: 2493

Here's Part 1 of "New Year's Eve: Chicago Style" - a special on WBBM Channel 2. Unfortunately, the recording starts during a commercial break and we miss the first 10 minutes or so of the broadcast - still, lots of local fun in this one. :-)

Gary Deeb (the Tribune's TV-radio critic at the time) wrote in his column for Monday, December 31st 1979 - "The Local Line: Speaking of New Year's Eve, if you want to laugh yourself into convulsions, tune to WBBM-Ch. 2 about 11:40pm fo...

WFLD Channel 32 - Keyfax Nite-Owl Service - "Episode Two!" (Opening, 1981)

Views: 3191

Hallelujah! A new (though relatively tiny) example of Nite-Owl on WFLD Channel 32 has been found! A truly rare find, indeed.

In fact, this is the first new "proper" footage of Nite-Owl discovered in about 6 years! (Even a couple tiny bleed-through excerpts were only found as recently as 4 years ago.) And what a clip! This one stands to rewrite the history of when Nite-Owl began, since all evidence before this seemed to point to the starting date as being early Mo...

(Commentator Len O'Connor was mentioned in the open, but he does not appear anyw...

Views: 3044

Here's Part 1 of The Ginny Tiu Show which aired on WCIU Channel 26. Ms. Tiu was a child prodigy pianist whose chief claim to fame was playing by ear and not being able to read a note, and who was a familiar presence on such 1960's TV series as The Ed Sullivan Show, Perry Como's Kraft Music Hall, and a 1966 episode of I've Got a Secret (from Steve Allen's run as host), as well as appearing in the 1962 Elvis Presley film Girls! Girls! Girls! In later years, ...

WHEN Channel 5 - Channel 5 Morning Report with Mike Leiderman - "Baby, It's Cold Outside" (1971?)

Views: 985

Transferred direct from Quad 2" tape, and not from Chicago itself, but Chicago-related, as this features Mike Leiderman who would go on to become a fixture both in front of and behind the camera in Chicago television (mainly at WMAQ Channel 5 and WFLD Channel 32).

This was from the days when he was an anchor at CBS affiliate WHEN Channel 5 (now WTVH) in Syracuse, NY. It is one of the four-minute Channel 5 Morning Reports he anchored at 8:55am and 9:55am (ET). On this p...
