WLS Channel 7 - News - "Armed Gunman Inside Channel 7 Building" (Part 2, 1990)
Here's Part 2 of WLS Channel 7's news coverage of an armed robbery suspect who hid out for 40 hours at the 190 North State Street building that houses the station.
This part begins with a report from WGN Channel 9 on the situation, read by anchor Roseanne Tellez. She and co-anchor Robert Jordan then introduce Dan Roan's Instant Replay.
Then the tape returns to WLS's own Eyewitness News coverage on their 10pm edition, with anchor Jim Rosenfield (who...
WBBM Channel 2 - Hunter - "The Costa Rican Connection" (Opening, Preview Breaks & Ending, 1977)
Here's the opening, preview breaks and ending moments of an episode of the TV series Hunter.
And no, folks, this is not the 1984-91 series on NBC (and thus, seen by Chicagoans on WMAQ Channel 5) with Fred Dryer and Stepfanie Kramer, but a virtually forgotten, short-lived series - "A Lorimar Production" (the company famous at the time for The Waltons and, later, for Dallas and Knots Landing) - that ran on the CBS Network and therefore aired in Chica...
WLS Channel 7 - 30th Anniversary Special (Part 1, 1978)
Here's a special anniversary special for our anniversary! Pretty special, eh? ;-) Actually 10/31/12 marked 5 years that FuzzyMemories.TV has been around - thanks to our wonderful crew (Dave, John, Mark, Dale, Mike, Kevin, Chris, and William), and to all the Fuzzketeers that make this website a fun place to visit! :-)
Here's Part 1 of WLS Channel 7's 30th Anniversary Special, hosted by Eyewitness News anchors Fahey Flynn and Joel Daly. The broadcast ori...
WBBM Channel 2 - The 20th Annual Chicago Emmy Awards (Part 1, 1978)
The transfer of this video clip made possible by your generous donations!
This is a tremendous find - not only do we have another (mostly) complete Chicago Emmy Awards telecast - this one from the 70s - as part of the 20th Anniversary they decided to have a retrospective of the local TV stations! So we get to see some footage, slides and pictures, which apparently at this point in 1978 were not yet thrown out or forgotten by the TV stations. (Some of the clips or bu...
WLS Channel 7 - 30th Anniversary Special (Part 7, 1978)
Here's Part 7 (the final part) of WLS Channel 7's 30th Anniversary Special, broadcast from Chicago's Park West and hosted by Eyewitness News anchors Fahey Flynn and Joel Daly (joined here by the star of the then-new Battlestar Galactica, Lorne Greene).
This part includes:
Fahey thanking all the early personalities of Channel 7 who were a part of the station's long history; and Joel thanking the station's behind-the scenes crew (directors, pro...
WFLD Channel 32 - Keyfax Nite-Owl Service (Opening, 7/16/82)
Here's another rare example of WFLD Channel 32's Keyfax Nite-Owl Service, notably the first six minutes thereof on this particular day.
Nite-Owl was WFLD's equivalent to two primitive (by today's standards), digital-based overnight "tele-text" services prevalent on British television, BBC's long-running Ceefax and ITV's (Independent Television, the commercial TV outlet) Oracle. Ceefax lasted up to the end of analogue television in England in ...
WIIC Channel 11 - 6:30 News Roundup With Len Johnson (1962)
Exactly 56 years ago today (at 6:30 PM)!
Here's an incredible find - usually anything this old, if I am lucky to find it, is on a 16mm kinescope (remember, in 1962 Quad tape itself was only 6 years old). And even though it's from a Pittsburgh station, it has a very strong Chicago connection, as it is anchored by Len Johnson, whose voice (if not face) will no doubt be very recognizable to people who watched WGN in the 60s, 70s, and very early 80s. He was one of the ub...
