July 18, 2013: Morning Radio...

 

With the emphasis on radio, I added twelve more ads today, all from August 1986, plus five more Random Pages gallery additions from The Blade, the first four by Tom Ensign. There's a Friday, 8/1/86 Peach Section story, “More Opportunity Behind Move, Mitchell, Zolik Say,” a follow up to a 7/29/86 story. Next is a Sunday, 8/10/86 Toledo Magazine story, “Air Play,” which includes a Bruce Sinner photo of Tom Ensign, WOHO's Fred Noth, and wrestler Dr. Jerry Graham. The other three are all from the Peach Section, including a Tuesday, 8/12/86 story, “Channels 36, 50 Taking Part In New Fox Network” and also includes an item on WOHO-AM carrying the Browns. Next is a Wednesday, 8/26/86 story, “La Cava, Kirk Make Debut As WSPD Morning Team” and also includes other “Around Toledo's Airwaves” items. The last one is a Saturday, 8/30/86 Electronic Press Box story by Seymour Rothman, “Five Rocket Road Games Set On Buckeye, Ch. 24.” There's one addition to the Jerry Lewis Telethon gallery, a Sunday, 8/31/86 ad for the 1986 Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon on WTVG-TV 13. There's also one addition to the PBS gallery, a Wednesday, 8/20/86 ad for Moment to Moment: Living with Parkinson's, on channel 30. There are three additions to the Buckeye CableSystem gallery, including a Wednesday, 8/6/86 ad for the “Wild and Crazy Comics Marathon” on the Movie Channel, Next is a Thursday, 8/7/86 ad for The CableSystem's “Movinge Sale.” This was when they moved to their current location on Southwyck Blvd. The other one is a Saturday, 8/30/86 ad for Rocket Football on channel 10B, a UT vs Florida State game. If you're wondering why the game wasn't shown live, read the 8/30/86 Seymour Rothman story. There are six additions to the Radio Station Ads gallery, including a Tuesday, 8/5/86 ad for “Singles Night at Food Town,” sponsored by WMHE-FM 92.5. There are two WTOD-AM 1560 / WKKO-FM 99.9 ads, a Wednesday, 8/20/86 ad, and a Friday, 8/29/86 ad, for Mornings with Mitch & Mary Beth, which premiered the following Monday. Next is a Monday, 8/25/86 full-page ad for Sky Concert '86, sponsored by Reams Broadcasting (WCWA-AM / WIOT-FM) and Kroger. There are also two for WSPD-AM 1370, a Tuesday, 8/26/86 ad for their new morning team, Jude LaCava and Lee Kirk, and a Friday, 8/29/86 ad (LaCava and Kirk, again, plus Rich Hoffer, Bill Stewart, Jerry Keil and Mike Jablonski). There's also one addition to the Other Vintage ads gallery, a Friday, 8/1/86 full-page ad for Trinova, the new name for Libbey-Owens-Ford, similar to a 7/8/86 ad. September 1986 ads, from the online archives of The Toledo Blade are on the way...
