WBBM Channel 2 - The 20th Annual Chicago Emmy Awards (Part 1, 1978)

Views: 2832

The transfer of this video clip made possible by your generous donations!

This is a tremendous find - not only do we have another (mostly) complete Chicago Emmy Awards telecast - this one from the 70s - as part of the 20th Anniversary they decided to have a retrospective of the local TV stations! So we get to see some footage, slides and pictures, which apparently at this point in 1978 were not yet thrown out or forgotten by the TV stations. (Some of the clips or bu...

Really quick flash of Joel Daly on the WLS Channel 7 news.

Flip to the ending of an episode of Gilligan's Island - if this was 1971 it would be on WGN from 5:30 to 6pm, which fits it with the ending time of the Rifle...

Views: 1259

Here's Part 2 of "New Year's Eve: Chicago Style" - a special on WBBM Channel 2. Unfortunately, the recording starts during a commercial break and we miss the first 10 minutes or so of the broadcast - still, lots of local fun in this one. :-) This part includes:

Mayor Jane Byrne and her husband Jay McMullen arrive at State & Randolph while John Coughlin narrates the "action". Longtime WGN TV and Radio veteran Roy Leonard can be seen as the MC of the event down on the stage.
