Screaming Yellow Theater (Svengoolie) - "Larry Lujack" (1972)

Views: 2572

Here's a segment from Screaming Yellow Theater - the original Svengoolie, which aired on WFLD Channel 32 from 1970-1973. Svengoolie was played by Jerry G. Bishop.

This Break #2 from an unknown episode number features Larry Lujack - "Superjock" disc jockey from (at the time) WLS-AM 890 radio.

I'm thinking that "SYT #1" as the clapboard person says, refers to the fact that it's Movie #1. (2 movies a night were shown for most of the run of SYT)

WMAQ Channel 5 - NewsCenter5 At 5pm - "The Blizzard of '78" (Part 3, 1978)

Views: 2325

Everyone remembers the great Blizzard of '79 - but how many people remember the Blizzard of 1978? Before the big snow in 1979 hit, this seemed fairly significant I guess, although not as bad as the Big Snow of 1967. Was this just a case of snow-perbole? You decide.

Here is Part 3, the final part, of some footage from the NewsCenter5 airing at 5pm on WMAQ Channel 5, with Mike Jackson, Ron Hunter, and Jerry Taft. Also features a very brief glimpse of one of WMAQ-TV's sports guys...

Here's a promo for the "Festival of Television" and their first night of special programming on WFLD Channel 32. Here are Chris Tuft's recollections:
