WFLD Channel 32 - The Baxters - "Women's Roles In Marriage"(Part 2, 1980)

Views: 2123

Here's Part 2, the final part of the Norman Lear created "interactive" program, The Baxters, as aired on WFLD Channel 32.

It was a pretty unique idea - the first half would be a fairly normal sitcom (whether or not it's any good is another question) that dealt with some issue of the day. The second half would be an in-studio discussion group to talk about the issues raised. Each city had their own locally produced second half (except for those who chose to use the "nat...

Views: 131554

During a broadcast of the Dr. Who episode "Horror of Fang Rock" on WTTW Chicago Channel 11, on Sunday November 22nd, 1987, at around 11:15pm, a Video "Pirate" wearing a Max Headroom mask broke into the signal and transmitted one of the weirdest, unauthorized things ever to hit the Chicago airwaves.

Earlier in the evening on the same day, during the Nine O'Clock News on Channel 9 (Yes, a completely different channel) the Max Headroom Pirate also broke in - although it was for a...

WGN Channel 9 - Prime Time Movie - "Song of Bernadette" (Promo, Open, Bumper Excerpts, On-Screen ID & Technical Difficulties Moment, 1979)

Views: 1638

Here's some surviving clips (other than the recording of the film itself) from the "Prime Time Movie" broadcast of "Song of Bernadette" (1943), starring Jennifer Jones, on WGN Channel 9. Though not an Easter movie it often aired during or close to the holiday. All the commercial breaks were cut so this is what was left of interest.

Includes: (all voiceovers by Carl Greyson)

A mostly complete promo for the movie (I assume this aired shortly before it began)

Screaming Yellow Theater (Svengoolie) - "Show #5 - Sven Sings" (1971?)

Views: 2144

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.

With no clapboard segments, we can only guess that this was Break #1 (from "Show #5") - although on these master tapes sometimes they didn't save all of the breaks, so this could be Break #2 or Break #3 for all we know. This one features Sven singing a parody of "Button Up Your Overcoat" with backup vocals by Zelda,...

Here's the "Mail Time" segment of Popeye with Steve Hart on WSNS Channel 44. Includes:

Steve starting off in front of Captain Salty, going on about what happened with "Dear Crabby" early on, with Bookie Worm (the voice of Nancy Boyle) at the desk. He then goes to the big Popeye spinach jar to select four lucky winners - the fifth who says "I Watch Popeye on Channel 44" to be invited to the lighthouse (he ends up taking one extra letter).

The first...

Here's Part 2 of an interview segment from AM Chicago on WLS Channel 7, in which host Steve Edwards interviews the legendary morning drive team of Dick (Sainte) and Doug (Dahlgren) - "Dick and Doug", who were fired from WCFL AM 1000 on March 12th 1976 midway through their air shift, after talking too much about that station's change in format from Top 40 to beautiful music (they had been explicitly forbidden to do so by WCFL's general manager, Lew Witz). In this part, they speak of va...
