Field Communications - "Old Style Chicago" - A FuzzyMemories Re-Creation (Station ID, 1978)

Views: 1792

Here is a (slight) re-creation of the vintage Chicago Field Communications ID (pre-1979) from before they came out with their animated one. I believe this was the original Field ID style. Note the weird electronic music.

I used the original video of the ID from the San Francisco version, which was recorded in 1978, along with the audio from

WSNS Channel 44 - "Season's Greetings" (Bumper, 1978)

Views: 1107

Here's an animated "Season's Greetings" bumper from WSNS Channel 44, starting off with snowflakes falling, and where a pair of trees evolves into the "44" logo.

Directed and produced by Kurt Mendelsohn. Camerawork by Ron Vasser.

Kurt said about the making of this, "Took at least 10 passes to layer it all together. Connie made several vertical boards of snowflakes on black. We recorded Ron's camera slowly tilting up on the first one, irised low, then played i...

Views: 4575

Here's a saucy commercial for WBMX - "Progressive" FM 103.

The call letters WBMX (standing for Black Music EXperience), were originally assigned to 102.7 on the FM dial in Oak Park/Chicago Illinois from 1973 to 1988. (That station frequency is now home to R&B station WVAZ - better known as V-103). In 1991, the call letters WBMX were assigned to 98.5 on the FM dial in the Boston area.

Contains some quick clips of the Chicago White Sox.

The Lost Snipets - "Homework Now!" (A FuzzyMemories Re-Creation)

Views: 1562

I had some additional Snipets segments but they were transferred from 16mm film and did not have the opening and closing on them. So, I did a little editing job and added them in. This was an early one, circa 1975. I found something cool to add to this - the circa 1975 title for Snipets, during the Kaiser Broadcasting era! Notice it is a little different from the Field era one that took over in 1977. Enjoy.

This one features an Art-Clokey-esque stop-film animation o...
