June 25, 2012: 1976 High School Basketball Tournament

 

I added 19 more ads today, all from March, 1976, plus four more Random Pages gallery additions, from Peach Sections of The Blade. The first two stories concern the 1976 Ohio High School Basketball Tournament, a Friday, 3/5/76 story, “Clay-Sylvania Game To Be Seen on Ch. 30” and a Wednesday, 3/24/76 story, “Scott Game To Be Seen On Ch. 30.” Toledo TV news man Jerry Anderson, then with WFOB in Fotoria, did the play-by-play. There are two more by Norman Dresser, a Thursday, 3/25/76 story, “Changes Made On Ch. 13's News Staff” and a Friday, 3/26/76 story, “ABC Keeps Looking Better And Better.” There are no ads today for channels 11, 13 and 24 but there are seven ads for channel 30, in the PBS gallery, including three “Festival 76” ads. There's a Tuesday, 3/9/76 ad for the National Geographic Special “The Incredible Machine,” The Adams Chronicles “John Quincy Adams, Secretary of State” and Marek. Next is a Thursday, 3/11/76 ad for Magnificent Adventure and Hollywood Theater “The Hemingway Play.” There's also a Friday, 3/12/76 ad for Drama in Sound “Stella Dallas” and Dear Love, and a Thursday, 3/18/76 ad, another one for the National Geographic Special “The Incredible Machine.” There are three more ads for Ohio AAA High School Basketball Tournament games, a Saturday, 3/6/76 ad for Clay vs. Sylvania, and a Saturday, 3/13/76 ad for Scott vs. Macomber, both games from the Waite Field House, and a Friday, 3/19/76 ad for Toledo Scott vs. Eastlake North, from Kent State University. There are two “10th. Anniversary ads” in the Buckeye CableSystem gallery, a Monday, 3/15/76 ad and a Thursday, 3/18/76 ad. There are eight ads in the CableSystem Channel 5 gallery, seven for movies. There's a Tuesday, 3/2/76 ad for “Operation Petticoat,” a Wednesday, 3/3/76 ad for “The Grass is Greener,” and a Friday, 3/5/76 ad for “Only Angels Have Wings.” The next four are for “Animal” Week, a Tuesday, 3/9/76 ad for “Shark,” a Wednesday, 3/10/76 ad for “Golden Hawk,” a Thursday, 2/11/76 ad for “The Red Pony,” and a Friday, 3/12/76 ad for “Africa, Texas Style.” There's also a Friday, 3/26/76 ad, another one for a High School Basketball Tournament game with Scott vs. Barberton. There are two more Tournament ads in the Radio Station Ads gallery, both for WKLR-FM 99.9, a Friday, 3/5/76 ad for Macomber vs. Woodward and Scott vs. St. John's, and a Friday, 3/25/76 ad for the Scott vs. Barberton game.
