WFLD Channel 32 - Creature Feature - "The Black Cat" (Bumper Excerpt, 1979)

Views: 1933

Blink, and you'll miss it! (especially this time)

Here is an extreme rarity - a painfully small microblip from a commercial break bumper of WFLD Channel 32's Creature Feature program. This was the program that was replaced by Son of Svengoolie in Summer of 1979. That would date this clip to at least before that time.

If you pause the video at about 10 seconds in you can see a fairly clear frame of the commercial bumper. In this one you can again make out a sm...

WVON 1390 AM - "We Are Family" (Commercial, 1980)

Views: 2456

This station has a bit of a confusing history, but it now occupies the frequency 1690 AM.

WVON was a "heritage" station to Chicago's black community featuring great Black air personalities like Lucky Cordell, Bruce Brown, Herb Kent "the cool gent", Yvonne Daniels and many others. WVON became well-known outside the Chicago area as well. Berry Gordy, the founder of Motown Records, sent every song he produced immediately to WVON before any other station.
