March 16, 2011: Salute to a Steel Soldier

With today's twenty uploads from April and May 1964, I now have 10,000 images on the site. There's one in the NET gallery, a Tuesday 5/12/64 ad for The Making of a Doctor "Had I But World Enough, and Time" on Channel 30. The other 19 ads are all in the the Channel 11 gallery. There are two Tuesday, 4/28/64 ads for a People's Savings sponsored special, The Jet Age Arrives (in Toledo), a half-page ad on page 6 and a second ad from the Peach Section. There's a Saturday, 5/2/64 ad for the MLB Game of the Week season premiere on CBS (Washington Senators at NY Yankees) which was on against the Tigers-Red Sox game on channels 2 and 13. The ad was also for a Pittsburg-St. Louis game on Sunday. Next is a Wednesday, 5/20/64 ad for a Toledo Arts Special, Sing Me a Song of Spirit, Sing Me a Song of Joy! (Jean Holden), a Saturday, 5/23/64 ad for a special documentary, Salute to a Steel Soldier: The Jeep and a Friday, 5/29/64 ad for the special, Kerboizen and Cancer...Thirteen Years of Bitter Conflict. There are 13 more ads for movies on Friday Night at the Movies, Hollywood Spectacular, The Sunday Show, The 1:00 Movie, The Big Show and Night Owl Theater. First is a Friday, 4/24/64 ad for "Beneath the Twelve-Mile Reef" and "The Day the Earth Stood Still," a Saturday, 4/25/64 ad for "Close to My Heart" (Ray Milland, Gene Tierney) and a Monday, 4/27/64 ad for "Frontier Gal" (Rod Cameron). Next is a Saturday, 5/2/64 ad for "Ill See You in My Dreams" (Doris Day, Danny Thomas), a Tuesday, 5/5/64 ad for "The Wild Blue Yonder" and a Saturday, 5/9/64 ad for "House of Wax."
