October 21, 2012: Anchors Aweigh

 

I added 23 more ads today, all from May, 1979 plus one more Random Pages gallery addition, a Thursday, 5/17/79 story by Norman Dresser, “Bill Kennedy Special Set Friday On Ch. 50.” You can also find a previously uploaded TV Guide ad for that special here. There are two additions to the Channel 11 gallery, including a Sunday, 5/14/79 TV Tab ad for Cops and Robbers Week on The Big Show. There's a similar TV Guide ad here. There's also a Wednesday, 5/30/79 ad for An Evening of Music with the Sylvania Southview High School Symphonic Choir, sponsored by Sylvania Savings Bank. There are also two additions to the Channel 13 gallery, both for The 13 Sunday Night Movie, a Saturday, 5/19/79 ad for “Bang the Drum Slowly” (Michael Moriarity) and a Saturday, 5/26/79 ad for “The Wild Bunch” (William Holden, Warren Oates, Robert Ryan, Ernest Borgnine). There's another one in the News/Special Reports Ads gallery, a Monday, 5/14/79 ad for a Bill Clark series of reports on boating safety, “Anchors Aweigh” on 13 Nightly News. There are also six additions to the Channel 13 News gallery, all of them for “The Best 13” on 13 Nightly News with Randy Price, a Tuesday, 5/15/79 ad (Best Newspaper Writer?), a Thursday, 5/17/79 ad (Best Sports Activity?), a Monday, 5/21/79 ad (Best Taco?), a Friday, 5/25/79 ad (Best Fishin' Hole?), a Monday, 5/28/79 ad (Best Restaurant) and a Wednesday, 5/30/79 ad (Best Local Band). There are six additions to the PBS gallery, all for channel 30 including three more for their 1979 Channel 30 Buy-In, a Saturday, 5/12/79 ad, a Monday, 5/14/79 ad, and a Tuesday, 5/15/79 ad. There's also another 5/15/79 ad for The Dick Cavett Show (Katharine Hepburn), a Saturday, 5/19/79 ad for The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, and a Saturday, 5/26/79 ad for Meeting of Minds (Steve Allen).

The first one is a Thursday, 5/17/79 ad for live coverage of the Three Mile Island Hearings and a Thursday, 5/31/79 ad (June Blooms on WGTE 91.3 FM). Also, be sure to check out the Halloween Ads gallery. I'll be adding several more Halloween ads sometime this week, and June 1979 ads, from the online archives of The Toledo Blade, are also on the way...
