November 5, 2013: The Bidder End!

 

I added eight more ads, from March and April 1990, plus four more Random Pages gallery additions from Peach Sections of The Blade, starting with a Wednesday, 3/21/90 story on radio coverage of “High School Basketball” playoff games. Next is the first of two by Tom Ensign, a Thursday, 3/22/90 story, “UT Launching Monthly Show on Cable Channels 5-A, COM.” It also included some other items. There also two Thursday, 3/29/90 items, about the annual Channel 30 auction and WRQN moving to their Maumee location. There's also a Friday, 4/6/90 column, the first “Blade Runner by Alan Abrams” entry on this site, titled “Did Ch. 24 Fire Dancie Moore or Did She Quit?” and also includes a couple of items on area radio stations. There are three additions to the PBS gallery for shows on Channel 30. The first two are for the 22nd Annual Auction, a Friday, 3/30/90 ad, and a Saturday, 4/7/90 ad (“The Bidder End!”). There's also a Monday, 4/16/90 ad for Ohio's Earth. There's one addition to the Buckeye CableSystem gallery, a Saturday, 4/7/90 ad for Rapmania, on Impulse pay-per-view. There are two additions to the ToledoVision 5 gallery, a Friday, 3/23/90 ad for Detroit Tigers Restrospective from PASS, and a Wednesday, 3/28/90 ad for University of Toledo News, with future WTOL-TV news reporter, Rebecca Fondessy and Dan Saevig. The last two ads are additions to the Other Vintage ads gallery, both full-page ads. There's a Wednesday, 3/21/90 Food Town / Scott Towels ad for the Ronald McDonald House, and a Monday, 4/16/90 Kroger ad for Tyson Looney Tunes Meals. More April 1990 ads, from the online archives of The Toledo Blade are on the way...
