September 25, 2012: There are Teams and There are Teams

 

I added 21 more ads today, from October and November, 1978 plus one Random Pages gallery addition, a Thursday, 11/2/78 story by Norman Dresser, in The Blade's Peach Section, “New Film Series To Open Tuesday Night On Ch. 30,” which also has additional items including The CableSystem getting more movies and Thomas Waniewski being named news director at WMHE. There are three additions to the Channel 11 gallery, a Wednesday, 11/1/78 ad for “To Sir With Love” on The Big Show (Sidney Poitier), a Friday, 11/3/78 ad for Rich Man, Poor Man (Peter Strauss, Nick Nolte), and a Monday, 11/6/78 ad for five Elvis Presley movies on The Big Show, “Blue Hawaii,” “Roustabout,” “Girls, Girls, Girls,” “Tickle Me,” and “Paradise Hawaiian Style.” I also re-did a previously uploaded TV Guide ad for those same movies, which had an incorrect tag. There's one more in the Channel 11 News gallery, a Thursday, 11/2/78 ad for their weather reports with Jan Skunda and Joe Ashton. There are similar ads here and here. There are three additions to the Channel 13 gallery, a Monday, 11/6/78 ad for Liar's Club (Ron Masak, Dody Goodman, Allen Ludden, Earl Holliman, Larry Hovis) and Tic Tac Dough (Wink Martindale) and two for Saturday Night Live (which channel 13 finally decided to carry) and The 13 Sunday Night Movie. The Saturday, 11/4/78 ad was for “El Dorado” (John Wayne, Robert Mitchum) and the Saturday, 11/11/78 ad was for “Klute” (Jane Fonda). There are also four additions to the Channel 13 News gallery, a Monday, 10/30/78 ad (Gordon Ward, Frank Gilhooley, Jim Mengel, Jennifer Blome, Randy Price, Frank Venner), a Tuesday, 10/31/78 ad ( Randy Price, Frank Venner, Gordon Ward), a Wednesday, 11/1/78 ad (Frank Gilhooley, Jim Mengel) and a Tuesday, 11/7/78 ad for their election coverage (Randy Price, Frank Venner). There's one addition to the PBS gallery, a Tuesday, 10/31/78 ad for “Dracula” on Great Performances, on channel 30. There's a similar TV Guide ad here. There are two additions to the Buckeye CableSystem gallery, a Thursday, 11/2/78 ad and a Friday, 11/3/78 ad. There are three additions to the Radio Station Ads gallery, all for WGTE-FM 91.3's Fall Festival '78, a Friday, 11/10/78 ad, a Saturday, 11/11/78 ad and a Monday, 11/13/78 ad. There are four additions to the Other Vintage ads gallery, a Tuesday, 10/31/78 ad for Viewpoint's Giant Screen TV, a Wednesday, 11/8/78 ad for Myers' Fireplaces, a Thursday, 11/9/78 ad for Wendy's Old Fashioned Hamburgers, and a Thursday, 11/9/78 ad for Brondes Ford.

More November, 1978 ads from the online archives of The Toledo Blade, are on the way...
