August 10, 2012: 13 Pillars of Strength

 

I added 33 more ads today, all from April 1977, plus three more Random Pages gallery additions from The Blade. There's a Tuesday, 4/12/77 story from the Peach Section, “Ch. 30 Off Air Monday Night, To Rerun Shows” and a Sunday, 4/24/77 TV Tab Channel guide. The Blade finally started using channel “bullets” in their listings. Shortly after this they changed the Toledo and Detroit channels to black numbers on white backgrounds. There are three more Tuesday, 4/26/77 stories by Norman Dresser from the Peach Section, about Alex Haley appearing on The Lou Gordon Program, Chet's Polka Party on WTOD, and WBGU-TV's guide for better UHF reception. There are six additional ads in the Channel 11 gallery, including a Wednesday, 4/6/77 ad for the MTM movie, “Something for Joey” on CBS.
