June 27, 2012: We've Got the Spirit

 

I added 10 more ads today, all from April 1976, plus five more Random Pages gallery additions, four from Peach Sections and one from a Sunday Entertainment-Leisure Section, of The Blade. The first four are by Norman Dresser, including a Thursday, 4/1/76 story, “Frank Venner Named Ch. 13 News Director” and a Friday, 4/9/76 story, “Mud Hens, Indians, Tigers To Be On Radio.” There are two Wednesday, 4/14/76 stories, “'Festival '76' Reported Local, National Success; Ch. 30 Pledged 2,000 New Members, $54,000” and “New CBS Schedule Comes As Surprise,” and a Sunday, 4/18/76 story, “WGTE-FM Plans To Go On Air May 2.” There's also a Thursday, 4/22/76 story, “WANR Sold, Scheduled To Become All-Religion.” There's one ad in the Channel 11 gallery, a Wednesday, 4/21/76 ad for three movies on The Big Show, “Run Wild, Run Free,” “The Moon Is Blue” and “Evel Knievel.” There's also one in the Channel 13 gallery, a Saturday, 4/24/76 ad for The Sportsman's Friend with Harold Ensley, sponsored by Strongheart Dog Food. There are two more 13 Nightly News ads in the Channel 13 News gallery, both of them, “We've got the Spirit...and the Experience” ads. The first one is a Wednesday, 4/14/76 ad (Nanci Riley, Gordon Ward, Frank Gilhooley, Frank Venner, Roger Weber) and the second one is a Monday, 4/19/76 ad (Roger Weber, Nanci Riley). There's one Channel 30 ad in the PBS gallery, a Monday, 4/12/76 ad for the documentary, L'Chaim...To Life!. There are two ads in the Radio Station Ads gallery, a Saturday, 4/10/76 ad for WGTE-FM 91.3 and a Friday, 4/16/76 ad for Toledo Mud Hens broadcasts, with Jim Weber and Jerry Keil, on Toledo's “Power” Sports Station, WSPD-AM 1370. The last three ads are all in the Other Vintage ads gallery, including a Thursday, 4/1/76 ad for the Mac Davis album, “Forever Lovers,” at Disc Records. It also promoted The Mac Davis Show, which aired on NBC that evening. Next is a Monday, 4/19/76 ad for Frisch's Big Boy Restaurants, followed by a Wednesday, 4/28/76 ad for Champion Spark Plugs. May 1976 ads from the online archives of The Toledo Blade, are on the way...
