WTTW Channel 11 - Sneak Previews (Opening, 1982)

Views: 1299

Here is a vintage clip from WTTW Channel 11 in Chicago showing the opening to Sneak Previews with Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel.

Note the announcer at the beginning of the clip - Don Ferris - this is the same person doing some of the voice over work for WSNS Channel 44 at around the same time.

Also note the old WTTW 11 ID bumper - I forgot that they didn't have any music or "frame" effect on these back then.

This aired on local Chicago TV on Saturday...

Here is a small excerpt from the Hot Fudge Show as aired on WLS Channel 7. This is all I found - wish there was more, but at least you get to hear a little of the theme song.

This show aired on WFLD Channel 32, WLS Channel 7, and at one point WSNS Channel 44.

Hot Fudge bumper voiceover by Janice Kos

Not sure when this was recorded exactly; the only clue is the Honeycomb cereal commercial at the end, which is why I placed this at around 1980.

Views: 711

Here's Part 4 (the last part) of the final episode of Al Lerner Sports on WSNS Channel 44. Lerner was the station's first sportscaster, and would go on to a long career with such stations as WLS Channel 7, WMAQ Channel 5, WGN Radio 720 and WSCR-AM, as well as being a wrestling announcer. Also featuring a young (and at this point, moustacheless) Tim Weigel, then a sportswriter for the now-defunct Chicago Daily News, who himself would become a familiar face on Chicago television, worki...

Toy Gallery (Commercial #2, 1975?)

Views: 741

Here's another almost identical commercial for the Toy Gallery, a local business at 1825 North Lincoln that advertised on WSNS Channel 44's Popeye with Steve Hart.

This ad [which comes after a brief CG slate marked "VTR: 586 - Cut: 2 - Toy Gallery (CM :30) - M.T./D.M." - the M.T. standing for director Mike Torchia; not sure what the D.M. is] has the exact same shots (and music and voice effects) as the other variation, except this has no explanatory voiceover.
