Views: 9548

38 years ago today, this aired!

Here's the ending moments and a full commercial break from the long-running series Garfield Goose And Friends on WGN Channel 9, hosted by Frazier Thomas. This is significant as it is the only known color off-air recorded footage from the show yet found!

This was recorded at Ridgewood High School in Norridge (by whom, has been lost to time but we've narrowed it down to about four adults) on 3/4" U-matic videotape usin...

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

Views: 2386

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: 7813

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...

NOTES: This is the earliest footage currently known to exist of a WFLD broadcast (albeit via kinescope); the sound heard in the backg...
