July 25, 2011: I Tawt I Taw...

I added 21 more ads today from November and December 1960 plus, in the Random Pages gallery, a Thursday, 12/1/60 Blade "On the Beam" column by Ray Oviatt titled "Radio's Soap Operas End." There's also an item about nine-year old Toledoan Charla Lee Werley appearing on WILX-TV 10 in Jackson, MI. There are eight ads in the Channel 11 gallery including a Saturday, 11/19/60 ad for "Johnny Guitar" on Hollywood Spectacular (Ward Bond), a Monday, 11/21/60 ad for a Garry Moore special, Tomorrow "Big City, 1980" on CBS and a Tuesday, 11/22/60 ad for "The Wild Blue Yonder" (Wendell Corey) and "The Red Pony" (Robert Mitchum) on The Big Show. Next is another 11/22/60 ad for The Tom Ewell Show "The Handwriting on the Wall" and a Wednesday, 11/23/60 ad for Thanksgiving shows, Captain Kangaroo on CBS, Romper Room with Miss Connie, Children's Spectacular, Thanksgiving Parade Jubilee on CBS and Leonard Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic "The University of Beethoven," also on CBS. There's a 12/6/60 ad for Tuesday night CBS shows, Douglas Edwards and the News, Father Know Best "The Old Days," The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis "Drag Strip Dobie," The Tom Ewell Show "Site Unseen" (Dick Powell), The Red Skelton Show and The Garry Moore Show, and there's a 12/7/60 ad for Wednesday night shows, Douglas Edwards and the News, The Aquanauts "The Cavedivers," Wanted - Dead or Alive "One Mother Too Many" (all on CBS), Perry Como's Krtaft Music Hall on NBC and Armstrong Circle Theatre "The Memory of a Murder," also on CBS. Channel 11 didn't carry CBS shows My Sister Eileen and I've Got a Secret. There are nine more in the Channel 13 gallery. There's a Saturday, 11/19/60 ad for Leave it to Beaver "Eddie's Double Cross" on ABC, another 11/20/60 ad for "Tap Roots" (Van Heflin, Susan Hayward) and "A Tale of Two Cities" on The Late Show and a Monday, 11/21/60 ad for The Bugs Bunny Show on ABC. It was shown on a six-day delay because channel 13 showed Sea Hunt on Tuesday nights instead of The Bugs Bunny Show. Next is another 11/21/60 ad for Adventures in Paradise "Hangman's Island" on ABC and yet another 11/21/60 ad for "Cover Girl" on Matinee Theater (Rita Hayworth, Gene Kelly).

There are three in the Radio Station Ads gallery. There are two WTOL-AM 1230 ads, a Saturday, 11/19/60 ad for the Ohio State - Michigan football game and a Browns - Steelers NFL game and a Saturday 12/3/60 ad for a Toledo vs. Southern Illinois basketball game, sponsored by Jim White Chevrolet, and another 12/3/60 ad for The Metropolitan Opera "Nabucco," sponsored by Texaco on WJR-AM 760. Today's last ad is in the Other Vintage ads gallery, a Monday, 11/21/60 ad for Pepsi-Cola. More vintage ads from the online archives of The Toledo Blade are on the way...
