Views: 815

Here's Part 3 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, ...

Harris Bank - Internal Promotional Film (Workprint) (Part 1, 1982)

Views: 1783

Here's Part 1 of something pretty neat and rare - a workprint of an internal promotional film from Harris Bank of Chicago, titled Honesty and Fair Dealing: An Introduction to the Harris Bank and the People Who Make It Work, produced for the company's 100th anniversary in 1982. (although maybe it's just the slightly washed-out and dirty work print, this almost seems like it could be from about 1977 - right down to the funky music. I do know that bank culture always seems to be a bit be...

Here's an extra-long Shutan Camera commercial which was used as sponsorship for "Talk About Pictures" - a show which aired Sundays at Noon on WMAQ Channel 5, hosted by George Fenneman. (He would sit at a table with a pro photographer and they would look at one of his/her photos and discuss the subject, technique, equipment, inspirations, etc.)

The lady in the ad is actress/model Jennifer Girard. She is n...

WLS Channel 7 - Ending of Saturday Night Movie, Reflections and Station Sign-Off (1977)

Views: 2177

Here's (as far as I'm aware) the earliest known (to date) sign-off sequence, from any channel, to turn up here. This one is from WLS Channel 7, found at the end of a Umatic videotape that was mostly recorded over with high school girls' gymnastics home movies from 1977 (boooooo!) and includes:

The ending moments of the Saturday Night Movie presentation (in glorious "pan-and-scan" and quite terrible color - it's not the recording - compare to how the commercials look!) o...

WFLD Channel 32 - Chicago Stuff (Part 1, 1985)

Views: 2003

Here's a lost Koz Klassic! - Chicago Stuff - was it a failed pilot? A consolation prize from Fox Television for cancelling Son of Svengoolie a month later? A half-remembered dream? It only aired once, at 10pm on a Sunday in December 1985 - so you couldn't be blamed for not knowing it existed. (I only heard rumors) In any case, it's a neat little package of Rich's schtick, so just think of it as an extremely early episode of The Koz Zone. :-)
