WFLD Channel 32 - Chicago Stuff (Part 3, 1985)

Views: 1838

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. :-)

Back to Warner and Jerry, who (as well as the chyron display) remind the audience that they're at Miomir's Serbian Club at 2255 W. Lawrence, and Jerry explaining he'd earlier done a weather report in the middle of the street; he then happens on a sharp-dressed guy, Scott (?) of Evanston, IL, in a three-piece suit, having a real good time with friends and relatives (including his father, mother and aunt); Jerry explains his wife is working the other side of the place, and he's not having that ...

Views: 1723

Not from Chicago, but definitely Chicago related (as we'll get to in a moment) - here's a rarity, transferred directly from a 2" quad videotape, an edition of the 11th Hour News on WPRO Channel 12 in Providence, Rhode Island (which, since 1967, has been known as WPRI-TV; except for the period 1977-1995 when they were affiliated with ABC, the station has otherwise been, and is today, a CBS affiliate).

The anchor is someone you likely know well - Bob Wallace, years before ...

At the Abbey Pub, Carol is speaking with Peter Furlong(?), the pub's owner, who'd come to U.S. from Ireland in 1958; he said every New Year's in Ireland, he probably got drunk, and life in Ireland at New Year's was nothing like at the pub he owns; he then gives New Year's wishes to friends, relatives, pub patrons and Mike Hannigan who's at Western(?) Hospital

At Miomir's, we see a closeup of one of the Serbian delicacies held on a tray by kitchen chef Donna(?) while Warner and ...

Views: 1054

Here's a few segments of an episode (entitled "The Guns of Harry August") of another short-lived series that ran over the NBC Network in the early 1980's - and therefore, in the Windy City, on our own WMAQ Channel 5 - Gavilan. (don't read too quick and mistake it for "Galivan")

This show was one of several over the years that starred the late Robert Urich, here in the role of Robert Gavilan, an ex-CIA agent currently in the employ of an oceanographic institute run by Ma...

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

Views: 5792

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.
