Views: 1414

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...

Wi...

Channel 6 (Nashville) - "A Primitive Weather Channel Christmas" (Excerpt, 1975)

Views: 7914

Not from Chicago, but still of historical interest: a weird oddity - an excerpt from cable Channel 6 in Nashville, Tennessee (broadcasting in black and white), with what amounts to a primitive version of The Weather Channel, with readings of Wind Direction, Wind Velocity, Barometric Pressure, Temperature, Time, and Current Speed in MPH (just kidding). Plus, it includes a (literal) community bulletin board (including, at one point, a notice for town carolers). All this with a hypnotic, end...
