January 23, 2011: Pin Busters

You'll find 20 more ads today, the oldest one from 1949 and the newest one from 1971. There are six in the Channel 11 gallery including a Saturday, 9/29/62 ad for the series premiere of Jackie Gleason's American Scene Magazine on CBS and a Saturday, 12/11/65 ad for two bowling shows, Pinbusters with Orris Tabner and Beat Junior Powell. The next one was a Thursday 9/21/67 ad for four NBC shows, but the show descriptions were for the shows that aired a week earlier: Daniel Boone "The Ballad of Sidewinder and Cherokee" (Fess Parker), Ironside "Message from Beyond" (Raymond Burr), Dragnet "The Big Bang" a.k.a. "The Grenade" (Jack Webb) and The Dean Martin Show, I'm not sure if the same ad ran on 9/14/67 because that issue was not online. There's a Friday 5/3/68 ad for "The Grapes of Wrath," a Wednesday, 1/29/69 ad for The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour premiere on CBS and a Wednesday, 9/16/70 ad for four CBS shows, Storefront Lawyers "A Man's Castle," Peanuts (special) "It was a Short Summer, Charlie Brown," Medical Center "Brink of Doom" (James Daly, Chad Everett) and Hawaii Five-0 "And a Time to Die" (Jack Lord) and there's a Saturday 5/11/68 ad (news-gath-er-er) in the Channel 11 News gallery. There are four ads in the Channel 13 gallery including a Wednesday, 9/22/65 ad for Zorro (Guy Williams) and a Saturday 9/27/69 ad for the premiere of Talk Back.
