December 11, 2012: Watch For Tom And Martha

 

I added thirteen more ads today from September 1980 plus five more Random Pages gallery additions from Peach Sections of The Blade. There's a Wednesday, 9/3/80 story by Norman Dresser, “Mid-October TV Season Opening Seen at Earliest,” about the SAG strike. That column also includes items about Walter Cronkite's retirement and C-SPAN. Next is a Thursday, 9/4/80 story, also by Dresser, “Jamie Farr Suggests Season's Outlook Might Be A Bleak One For Television” followed by a Monday, 9/8/80 story by Seymour Rothman, “Toledo Tennis Fans Thrown For A Loss.” There's also a Friday, 9/12/80 story by Dresser, “Public Affairs Series Making Bow on Ch. 11,” about the show, Prime Access and also includes other items about the hiring of Dan Cummins, Trudy Gallant and others at WTOL-TV, and UT football on WSPD. And there's a Saturday, 9/13/80 story by Seymour Rothman, “To See Or Not To See—OSU Football.” There are five additions to the Channel 11 gallery, four of them for PM Magazine, a Wednesday, 9/3/80 ad (Tom Marshall, Martha Sharan), a Thursday, 9/4/80 ad (Take a trip through the good life!), a Monday, 9/8/80 ad (Scramble Aboard!) and a Thursday, 9/11/80 ad (The Fastest Gun in the World). There's also a Sunday, 9/7/80 ad for the second season premiere of The Earle Bruce Show. There's also one addition to the News/Special Reports Ads gallery for Toledo Eleven News, a Tuesday, 9/16/80 ad for a Dan Buckley series of reports, “A Bicycle Built For You.” There are three additions to the Channel 13 gallery, including a Monday, 9/8/80 ad for Happy Days Again at 7 PM and Tic Tac Dough at 7:30. Next is a Saturday, 9/13/80 ad for Barney Miller, weekdays at 5 PM and 13 Nightly News (Virgil Dominic, via satellite). And there's a Wednesday, 9/16/80 ad for Real People, the mini-series, Shogun and again, 13 Nightly News. There are two additions to the PBS gallery, both for channel 30, a Sunday, 9/7/80 ad for Evening at Pops (Toots Thielemans) and a Friday, 9/12/80 ad for Bill Moyers' Journal “Campaign Report,” part one of nine. There's one addition to the Buckeye CableSystem gallery, a Monday, 9/1/80 ad for CNN. There's also one addition to the Radio Station Ads gallery, a Sunday, 9/7/80 ad for The University of Toledo Rockets on WSPD with Jerry Keil. Don't forget the Holiday Season Ads gallery, and more September, and October 1980 ads, from the online archives of The Toledo Blade, are on the way...
