June 8, 2011: Beeper Day

I added 21 more ads today, from May and June 1967 including one in the Channel 24 gallery, a Friday, 5/26/67 ad for "Beeper Day" at the Toledo Zoo. There are nine in the Channel 11 gallery. There are two Monday, 5/8/67 ads for Lamson's annual TV fashion show, this year called Project Cotton, hosted by Lamont McLoughlin. The ad on the right is also for an NBC News Special "The Pursuit of Pleasure," hosted by Sander Vanocur. There's also a Thursday, 5/11/67 ad and Blade TV Highlights description for an NBC special, The Colgate Comedy Hour, which served as a pilot for a possible revival series. Next is a Monday, 5/15/67 ad for a CBS special, Town Meeting of the World (Robert F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan) and a Tuesday, 5/16/67 ad for two shows, a special on Northwest Ohio's tornado warning system, When the Sirens Sound! and a special edition of Comment with U.S. Navy Commander Al Schaufelberger. There are four more for CBS shows, a Saturday, 5/20/67 ad for The Preakness horse race from Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, a Tuesday, 5/23/67 ad for The 1967 National Drivers Test with Walter Cronkite and Mike Wallace, a Tuesday, 5/30/67 ad for Ivanov (John Gielgud) and a Saturday, 6/3/67 ad for the premiere of Away We Go (George Carlin, Buddy Greco), a summer replacement series for The Jackie Gleason Show. There's one more in the Channel 11 News gallery, a Wednesday, 5/31/67 ad for their six news programs, The Mid-Day Report, News/90, The 11 O'Clock Report, The Saturday 6 O'Clock Report, Saturday News Final and Sunday News Final. There are three in the Channel 13 gallery, a Friday, 5/12/67 ad for The Mike Douglas Show with guests Dan Rowan, Dick Martin and Bob Hope, a Saturday, 5/27/67 ad for a special, Road Racing Highlights of 1966 and a 6/9/67 ad for another half-hour Friday night edition of The Mike Douglas Show (Rosemary Clooney) and The Merv Griffin Show (Totie Fields). There are four more ads for Deadline in the Channel 13 News gallery, a Monday, 6/5/67 ad (Gordon Ward), a Tuesday, 6/6/67 ad (Jim Uebelhart), a Wednesday, 6/7/67 ad (Gordon Ward) and a Thursday, 6/8/67 ad (David Drury). By the way, those ads say Deadline at 5:30 & 11:00. Channel 13 aired ABC Evening News with Peter Jennings at 5:30, followed by Deadline from 6:00-7:00. There's one channel 30 ad in the NET gallery, a Monday, 5/22/67 ad and Blade TV Highlights description for NET Journal "Every Seventh Child." The last two ads are both in the Other Vintage ads gallery, a Monday, 5/15/67 ad for posters at Serendipity in Toledo and a Tuesday, 5/16/67 ad for Ohio Bell (with Toledoan Corliss McGee). More vintage ads from the online archives of The Toledo Blade are on the way...
