June 29, 2011: Last Chance for a Great Lake

 

There are twenty additions today, eleven from December 1967 and nine from January 1960. There are five in the Channel 11 gallery including a Wednesday, 12/6/67 ad for two specials, Alladin on CBS and On Stage which featured "The Road Show Entertainers" of Toledo. There's also a Thursday, 12/14/67 ad for The Bob "Santa" Hope Show on NBC, a Saturday, 1/16/60 ad for Hospital Corridors "Psychiatric Care," sponsored by the Hospital Council of Toledo and two ads for The U.S. Steel Hour on CBS (broadcast live from New York), a Wednesday, 1/13/60 ad for "Queen of the Orange Bowl" and a Wednesday 1/27/60 ad for "You Can't Have Everything" (Piper Laurie). The Random Pages gallery has a Sunday, 12/10/67 front-page TV Tab story by Robert Gillette on the WSPD-TV documentary Last Chance for a Great Lake (David Drury, Nat Nattin) and there are two Tuesday, 12/12/67 ads for that documentary in the News/Special Reports Ads gallery, an Ohio Citizens ad and a channel 13 ad. There's one ad in the Channel 13 gallery. It's a Sunday, 1/17/60 ad for The Ohio Story "Colonel Gibson's Flour Barrel," a ten-minute show that followed Matinee Theater. There's a You Tube video of a different Ohio Story about the Port of Toledo, here. There are two more in the Channel 13 News gallery for Deadline with Jim Rudes, sponsored by Ohio Bell, a Wednesday, 1/6/60 ad and a Monday, 1/18/60 ad. The NBC gallery has a Friday, 1/1/60 ad for The Bell Telephone Hour "Our Musical Ambassadors" which aired on Detroit's channel 4 and The NET gallery has a Monday, 12/11/67 ad for NET Journal "A Conversation with Richard Nixon" on channel 30. There are five in the Radio Station Ads gallery, a Monday, 12/18/67 ad for Ask Your Mayor, William J. Ensign, on WCWA, a Saturday, 12/30/67 ad for WOHO's Super Hit Survey and three more ads for the Monday night computer-simulated fight series on WSPD, a 12/11/67 ad (Rocky Marciano, Jim Jeffries), and two 12/18/67 ads (Rocky Marciano, Jack Dempsey), a WSPD ad and a Cain's ad. See this PDF for more details. The last two are in the Other Vintage ads gallery, a Friday, 1/1/60 ad for the Westgate Village Merchants' Association and a Monday, 1/11/60 ad for Sohio's 90th anniversary.

 

And another note: RTV on Channel 24.2 in Toledo (216 on Buckeye Cable) is now carrying some different classic shows and changing the times of some others. The Rifleman is now on at 11 am with two episodes, The Adventures of Robin Hood is on at noon, Peter Gunn at 12:30 and The Bill Cosby Show at 1 pm. Movin' On is replacing Quincy at 2 pm, Naked City is on at 3 pm (and at 7 pm on the weekends) Route 66 at 4 pm, I Spy at 5 pm and two episodes of Daniel Boone now air at 6 pm. In prime time, Starsky and Hutch replaces The A-Team at 8 pm, Police Story replaces Magnum. P.I. at 9 pm and The Saint replaces The Rockford Files at 10 pm. I'm glad that someone is showing Naked City and Route 66 but I'd rather see them on from 6-8 pm. Movin' On might be worth checking out but with less than 50 episodes they won't even last 10 weeks before they start repeating them again. I don't think Police Story has aired in Toledo since its original run or at least since its limited late-night run. More vintage ads from the online archives of The Toledo Blade are on the way...
