I added fourteen more ads today, all from September 1981, plus four more Random Pages gallery additions from Peach Sections of The Blade, all by Norman Dresser. There are some Thursday, 9/3/81 items about WSPD-AM, and a Friday, 9/4/81 story, “New TV Season 'Launched' (More Or Less) On Oct. 5” and also includes other items. Next are two Tuesday, 9/8/81 stories, “Toledo's WGTE-TV Forms Video Production Division” and “About People, Events In Broadcasting World” and there's a Thursday, 9/10/81 story, “Ch. 24 To Upgrade, Shift Time Of Evening Newscast.” There's just one addition today to the Channel 11 gallery, a Monday, 9/7/81 ad for The Way We Were Week which featured December Bride, The Twilight Zone, The Honeymooners, Marshal Dillon and The 20th Century. There are three additions to the Channel 13 gallery, two for The Jerry Lewis Labor Day Telethon, a Sunday, 9/6/81 ad and a Monday, 9/7/81 ad. There's also a Thursday, 9/10/81 ad for Superband.
