35 Years Ago Today

Here's a brief clip of the "Faces of Wrigley Field," aired during the middle of the seventh inning of the Chicago Cubs baseball game on WGN Channel 9 (the Pittsburgh Pirates were leading the Cubs 2-0 at this point).

Features shots of various attendees of the day's game, set to the music of The Ramsey Lewis Trio's 1965 instrumental version of "The 'In' Crowd."

This is followed by the Cubs' Jerry Martin (#28) landing a base hit to start the bottom of the seventh inning.

Features the voice of Jack Brickhouse calling the play-by-play.

(The Cubs eventually beat the Pirates, 5-3.)

This aired on April 25, 1980.

WGN Channel 9 - Chicago Cubs Baseball - "Faces Of Wrigley" (1980)

Here's a brief clip of the "Faces of Wrigley Field," aired during the middle of the seventh inning of the Chicago Cubs baseball game on WGN Channel 9 (the Pittsburgh Pirates were leading the Cubs 2-0 at this point).

Features shots of various attendees of the day's game, set to the music of The Ramsey Lewis Trio's 1965 instrumental version of "The 'In' Crowd" (Argo 5506, prior to that label's being renamed Cadet).

This is followed by the Cubs' Jerry Martin (#28) landing a base hit to start the bottom of the seventh inning.

Features the voice of Jack Brickhouse calling the play-by-play.

(The Cubs eventually beat the Pirates, 5-3.)

I included a little clip at the end that was recorded over - anyone have any idea what it could be? Looks like Columbo with a vampire and a policeman, on the set of Fawlty Towers! ;-)

This aired on local Chicago TV on Friday, April 25th 1980.

That doesn't sound like Milo, that's Jack Brickhouse on the call.

D'oh. I should have known that. Corrected.

Thanks for the info . . . it sure didn't sound like either Vince Lloyd or Lou Boudreau. ;-)

Cool clip Fuzzy. Thanks for posting I love any clips of the Cubs and Sox from the 80s.

Harry Caray was great (although better on the South Side), but Jack Brickhouse was truly the voice of the Cubs. A shame that he died the same year as Caray, because Jack deserved a better tribute.

Attendance 7714, actually better than I figured looking at the shot of the stands behind home plate. Looked like a miserable day. The bad ol' days before the current bad ol' days (the Cubs stopped being "lovable losers" and now just seem to be "losers").

Maybe there's a brief Dark Shadows episode rerun clip at the end of this clip?

DTH: No, that doesn't look like Dark Shadows to me.

That clip at the end looks like the made-for-tv "Murder Can Hurt You" from 1980. It's a spoof of the TV detective shows of the 70s.

Now that I'm now a local Las Vegan, I see Anderson Dairy trucks all the time. I wonder if they still supply the Mac & Dons out here...

I'd swear that 3rd guy with the tie was none other than a certain Gunnery Sargeant from "Full Metal Jacket". The one & only Mr. R. Lee Ermey

In the opening of the commercial is the store front of a Woolworth store in some shopping mall with 1970's-1983 Woolworth logo signage.


Comment posted in McDonald's - "We Do It All For You" (Commercial, 197?) by Dth1971 on Tuesday, April 14th, 2015 at 6:57pm CT

1975 is my guess.


Comment posted in McDonald's - "Nobody Can Do It Like McDonald's Can" (Commercial, 197?) by Dth1971 on Tuesday, April 14th, 2015 at 6:56pm CT

This is really from 1979, I know it.
