WPRO Channel 12 - 11th Hour News with Bob Wallace (1965)

Views: 1715

Not from Chicago, but definitely Chicago related (as we'll get to in a moment) - here's a rarity, transferred directly from a 2" quad videotape, an edition of the 11th Hour News on WPRO Channel 12 in Providence, Rhode Island (which, since 1967, has been known as WPRI-TV; except for the period 1977-1995 when they were affiliated with ABC, the station has otherwise been, and is today, a CBS affiliate).

The anchor is someone you likely know well - Bob Wallace, years before ...

WFLD Channel 32 - Keyfax Nite-Owl Service (Opening, 7/16/82)

Views: 2557

Here's another rare example of WFLD Channel 32's Keyfax Nite-Owl Service, notably the first six minutes thereof on this particular day.

Nite-Owl was WFLD's equivalent to two primitive (by today's standards), digital-based overnight "tele-text" services prevalent on British television, BBC's long-running Ceefax and ITV's (Independent Television, the commercial TV outlet) Oracle. Ceefax lasted up to the end of analogue television in England in ...

WIIC Channel 11 - 6:30 News Roundup With Len Johnson (1962)

Views: 7993

Exactly 56 years ago today (at 6:30 PM)!

Here's an incredible find - usually anything this old, if I am lucky to find it, is on a 16mm kinescope (remember, in 1962 Quad tape itself was only 6 years old). And even though it's from a Pittsburgh station, it has a very strong Chicago connection, as it is anchored by Len Johnson, whose voice (if not face) will no doubt be very recognizable to people who watched WGN in the 60s, 70s, and very early 80s. He was one of the ub...

WGN Channel 9 - Len Johnson and the News (Part 1, 1965)

Views: 6706

Here's Part 1 of an incredibly rare find - an edition of Len Johnson and the News on WGN Channel 9 from 1965! This was a forerunner to their overnight Night Beat newscast that ran from the late-sixties well into the 1980s.

You'll notice that this was during that awkward transition phase from black-and-white to color with most of the broadcast appearing in black-and-white, but then interspersed by random color commercials and a few color slides.

Thi...
