June 25, 2013: 150 Years

 

I added thirteen more ads today, all from December 1985, plus five more Random Pages gallery additions from Peach Sections of The Blade, all by Tom Ensign. First is a Wednesday, 12/11/85 review of the new CBS series, Mary, “Mary Tyler Moore Returns, And It's Likely With A Hit.” Mr. Ensign was sure wrong in predicting that this show would be a big hit. Next is a Friday, 12/13/85 story, “Toledo To Be Test Market For PBS Advertisements” and also includes two other items. There's a Wednesday, 12/18/85 item about changes at channel 24, and a Thursday, 12/19/85 story, “150 Years Of The Blade Grist For Ch. 30 Cameras.” The last one is a Thursday, 12/26/85 story, “WUPW Gets Decent Grade In First Viewership Report” and also includes an item on channel 24 moving Nightline again. There are three additions to the Channel 13 gallery, a Monday, 12/9/85 ad for Divorce Court, a Wednesday, 12/18/85 ad for Small Wonder, and a Friday, 12/27/85 ad for The Lou Rawls Parade of Stars with local hosts, Bill Harris, Brenda Hines and WVOI's Dawn Spencer. There are also three additions to the Channel 36 gallery, a Monday, 12/2/85 ad for Wonder Woman (with Lynda Carter's named misspelled), a Wednesday, 12/14/85 ad for The Best of Saturday Night Live and Benny Hill, and a Monday, 12/9/85 ad for Dallas (Larry Hagman). There are five additions to the PBS gallery for channel 30, including three Ohio Bell ads for Nature, all Sunday TV Tab ads. The first one is a 12/1/85 ad for “Man's Best Friend,” followed by a 12/8/85 ad for “Sexual Encounters of the Floral Kind,” and a 12/29/85 ad for “Through Animal's Eyes.” There's also a Tuesday, 12/17/85 Blade ad for Through the Eyes of The Blade which aired two days later, and a Friday, 12/20/85 ad for Lucas County: 150 Years. The last two ads today are additions to the Buckeye CableSystem gallery. First there's a Sunday, 12/8/85 TV Tab ad for the CBN mini-series, Butterfly Island. There's also a Tuesday, 12/10/85 ad for Rocket Country, “a look a UT sports,” on channel 10B. January 1986 ads from the online archives of The Toledo Blade are on the way...
