March 12, 2013: Very Soon!

 

I added fourteen more ads today from March and April 1982, plus four more Random Pages gallery additions from Peach Sections of The Blade. The first one is a Wednesday, 3/24/82 story by Tom Gearhart, “UT To Offer Courses Over Television” and also includes other items about WJR-AM, WKLR-FM, and Bob Barker of The Price Is Right, appearing in Toledo at Centennial Hall. Next is a Wednesday, 3/31/82 story, “Norman Dresser Retiring After 34 Years at The Blade. There's also a Tuesday, 4/20/82 story by Tom Gearhart, “24 News Names Benjamin As Co-Anchor With Collins” and a Wednesday, 4/21/82 story, “Record Fest '82 Set At Recreation Center,” about an event sponsored by Boogie Records and WXEZ-FM, to support WGTE-TV. There are two additions to the Channel 11 gallery, including a Thursday, 4/1/82 ad for the Toledo Eleven Kids Health Fair at Franklin Park Mall. The other one is a Thursday, 4/29/82 ad for a PM Magazine segment on Mariette Hartley, who was doing Polaroid commercials with James Garner at the time. There's one addition to the Channel 13 gallery, a Tuesday, 3/23/82 ad for a syndicated program, The National Crime and Violence Test, “Burglary, Robbery and Theft.” There are two additions to the Channel 24 gallery, both for The 11th Easter Seal Telethon, a Friday, 3/26/82 ad and a Saturday, 3/27/82 ad (Pat Boone, Paul W. Smith, Rosemary Collins). There are also three additions to the Channel 24 News gallery for new 24 News Tonight anchorman Rick Benjamin, a Wednesday, 4/14/82 ad, a Tuesday, 4/20/82 ad, and a Saturday, 4/24/82 ad. There's one addition to the PBS gallery, a Thursday, 4/29/82 ad for The Great Channel 30 Buy-In, and there's also one addition to the Buckeye CableSystem gallery, a Thursday, 4/15/82 ad for CNN Financial News. There are two additions to the Radio Station Ads gallery, including a Wednesday, 3/25/82 ad for WMHE-FM 92.5, trying to lure away WJR listeners with The 92-5 Morning Times. It was actually just a part of a larger, full-page ad. There's also a Thursday, 4/15/82 ad for “unforgettable” WCWA-AM. Today's last ad is an addition to the Other Vintage ads gallery, a Thursday, 3/25/82 ad for Ohio Bell (Teleconferencing pulls everybody together...). May 1982 ads, from the online archives of The Toledo Blade, are on the way...
