Ah, Pat Harrington Jr... Comedically ahead of his time. He was born before Benny Hill, right? Comment posted by AbeFroman on Tuesday, February 12th 2008 at 9:16am.
Most Traks went out of business and were replaced by Advance Autoparts.
Yep! Ol' Pat's character of Dwaine F. Schneider was a hoot. Of course, he can't get away with the smokes in his sleeve though (that P.C. thing that is supposed to make everyone pure, elite, and perfect). Comment posted by armitagenlowell on Tuesday, February 12th 2008 at 3:51pm.
SAH-WEET! I haven't seen a Track Auto Commercial with Schnieder since I was a kid...thanks for posting. I bought a pair of cheap floormats from Track Auto when it had a going out of business sale over at the Columbia Plaza in Hammond circa 2001 I think....and I thought of Schnieder too...tears Comment posted by esmooth99 on Wednesday, February 13th 2008 at 2:17am.

Aha, Henry Cooke. How long was he with WMAQ? Ditto for Lorry Young.
As for Lee Hanna - he was brought in by parent network NBC to 'MAQ in 1976 to try to lift the station from last place, after propelling NYC sister station WNBC Channel 4 to the top with its 2-hour "NewsCenter4" newscast. Alas, for a variety of reasons, Mr. Hanna's tenure at WMAQ didn't work out and he was gone by 1978. Ron Powers, in the 1980 edition of his book "The Newscasters: The News Business As Show Business," had a section about Mr. Hanna's ill-fated WMAQ foray in his chapter of the ups and downs of WNBC's "starship newscast."
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.
