40 Years Ago Today

FuzzBeat Presents What's Happening... ;-)

Here's a totally groovy commercial for the Galaxy Discotheque, located at 37 East Lorraine Road in Addison, IL. $1 per person cover charge on Fridays and Saturdays! It was a "million dollar discotheque", had an "exciting sound activated dance floor", "ultrasonic" sound system, free dance instructions Sundays and Mondays at 9pm, "plenty of free parking", and was "adjacent to the Stardust Bowl" (which is still open!). What's not to love?

History Note: During the Winter of 1985, Galaxy Disco changed their name to Dilligaf's (or "Dillies" as the regulars apparently called it). The name was a reference to an acronym for an off-color saying, "Do I look like I give a...[expletive deleted]". And now you know the rest of the story...

This aired on May 23, 1976.

Voice over ? Probably the owners girlfriend or one of the DJ's who'll help you dance the night away.

The ad has a quasi-porno chic feel to it. I like it!

And to think they're now "on the corner of Happy and Healthy," plus having swallowed up Duane Reade - a store of which I saw here in Chicago when I passed through either en route to a film festival or coming from it, in 2002. Their logo, I've noticed, remains the same, though . . .

His voice sounds very familiar. I think he may have been the VO for some of the early Carson's Ribs commercials.

This may or may not be the same Charles Fuller who was based out of Florida; and who co-produced The Royal Guardsmen's 1966 hit "Snoopy Vs. The Red Baron." Other Fuzzyites who'd know more may either confirm or deny this.

Tucker was also a charter member of the "Eyewitness News" team from within the first two years of its existence on WABC Channel 7 in New York City (he was their features reporter); and the first host of the station's first attempt at a local morning show, "A.M. New York," from 1970 until 1972. (That program was an indirect predecessor to what, until May 13, was known as "Live With Kelly And Michael." As well, it was that city's equivalent of, say, WLS's "Kennedy & Company" which, after a rotation of hosts following Bob Kennedy's death in 1974 and a few title changes along the way, would end up morphing into "The Oprah Winfrey Show" that ran nationally from 1986 until 2011.)

John Bartholomew Tucker was the host of Treasure Isle that lasted 2 seasons on ABC in case you guys didn't know.
