WLS Channel 7 - AM Chicago - "Dick & Doug" (Part 2, 1976)
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 various other radio personalities in different cities and how they were fired, and in Dick & Doug's case, how they learned of their firing from WCFL through an article by Gary Deeb; also mentioned was the previous day's Saint Patrick's Day Parade on State Street, and Larry Lujack is mentioned as still being part of 'CFL (though his last day on the air there was March 15th). Dick & Doug also go through Steve's horoscope (reading horoscopes was a part of their show). At the end of this part is a super text: "monday...the zany antics of Marty Allen."
NOTE: This broadcast was originally in color, but captured on an early home videotape recording in black and white. There are also some tape-tracking problems that are noticeable at certain points on this clip.
This aired on local Chicago TV on Thursday, March 18th 1976 during the 9am to 10:30am timeframe.
