I added 21 more ads today, all from August, 1979 plus seven more Random Pages gallery additions from Peach Sections of The Blade. The first four are all by Norman Dresser including a Thursday, 8/2/79 item on Scared Straight. Next is a Thursday, 8/9/79 story, “Nine Toledo Area Groups Funding Ch. 30 Programs” which also includes several other items. There's also a Friday, 8/10/79 story, “Networks Face Challenge From New Technologies” and a Tuesday, 8/21/79 item on a channel 11 country music special with Toledoan Terry Cooper and T.G. Shepherd. I'll post an ad for that special next time. There's a Thursday, 8/23/79 story, “Chase Clements Fired From Post At Ch. 13” and a Saturday, 8/25/79 Electronic Press Box Story by Seymour Rothman, “Diles Vs.
