Here is an (incomplete) PM Magazine Promo & Illinois Lottery Drawing from January 25th, 1986. This was shown during WFLD Channel 32's Son of Svengoolie presenting the movie "Supersonic Man". This was his last show, #334. :-(

The announcer during the lottery drawing is none other than WGN's own Dean Richards.

Views: 1673

Here's an edition of the post-game 10th Inning show on WGN Channel 9, hosted by Jack Brickhouse, with guest Bob Lurie who had just assumed majority ownership of the San Francisco Giants. This was after a grueling 14-inning session which saw the Cubs beat the Giants at Candlestick Park, 6-5, in the first game of a doubleheader. This was also from the days when remote broadcasts such as the Cubs / Giants match carried this day by WGN went through separate transmissions (one for the vid...

Rest In Peace, Jim "Moose" Murphy - The Picnic Permit King (1949-2009)

Views: 4946

We now pay our respects to a man who was very comforting to us in his regularity. When you saw a report like this you knew another year had passed.

Here is a news segment detailing the first time Jim "Moose" Murphy waited in line for his Cook County Forest Preserve picnic permit. Interesting to watch because it also notes that in 1983 Moose beat out another long-time holder of the "first in line" crown - a man named Elmer Tucker, who had been first for 10 years in a row from ...
