30 Years Ago Today

Not from Chicago, but still of interest - here's a station ID for KMIR Channels 6 and 36 in Palm Springs, California, affiliated then as now with NBC. (Channel 36 is the main channel, Channel 6 was its cable TV dial position; the '6' ID remained part of their logo up until the end of 2013.)

"Your NBC station, serving all the communities of the magnificent desert empire."

This aired on June 24, 1986.

Based on this clip, I'm guessing the rather ponderous ID heard here was voiced by KMIR owner John Conte.

Several years later, KMIR would be the ignominious final stop in the career of superstar L.A. anchorman John Schubeck. Here's proof that the bigger they are, the harder they fall. ("Let's talk to the guard...") Apparently Schubeck had a stint at WGN in the mid-'60s, so it's somewhat relevant! ;-)

As well, Schubeck had worked in Philly (at WRCV [now KYW] Channel 3), and in New York City (my bailiwick) at WABC Channel 7 at the outset, and in the early years, of their "Eyewitness News." His story ended up amongst the most tragic in the TV news profession.

Upgraded the video file on this one.


Comment posted in Asch and Associates - "Bill Cassidy Commercial Demo Reel" (1975?) by Loyal32Fan on Sunday, June 19th, 2016 at 6:26pm CT

I remember drinking those diet sodas back in the '70s. They had a nasty aftertaste, almost tasted like metal.

In some ways, the Asch logo is reminiscent of a portion of the logo for WNET Channel 13 in Newark, NJ / New York City, as used from c.1972 to about 1977. I wonder if the same designer did both logos?


Comment posted in Mattel - "Mork & Mindy Toys" (Commercial, 1979) by LaPrincess on Wednesday, June 15th, 2016 at 9:27pm CT

For some unexplained reason I received the Mork and Mindy game from some program that was giving all the kids toys for Christmas because so many apparently were poor (we weren't so I don't know why they included all kids). Anyway it was a card game and one of the creatures on the card was called oopadoo and we would call one of our dogs that.

Why is it when I watch this, I end up thinking of the Weird Al Yankovic video "I Lost On Jeopardy"?

You have to admit, the man had a distinctive voice.

However, that wig was specifically made for radio.

This is the man that Garry Meier got his "Clif" charachter from. :-)

I remember this jingle. I was always fascinated by this store and loved when we took a ride there. I mentioned this on another video but this location has an interesting history. One of the first drive-ins was built on this spot then was torn down (not sure if it was to build Dispensas). After this was closed they built the tallest building (outside the city limits of Chicago) in Illinois.
