August 13, 2013: The Firm Resolve

 

I added eleven more ads today, all from May 1987 plus two more Random Pages gallery additions from Peach Sections of The Blade. There's a Friday, 5/8/87 item by Tom Ensign, about Steve Mason returning to WRQN, and a Saturday, 5/16/87 story by Seymour Rothman, “Why Does Tiny Archbold Radio Do Hens' Games?” It's about WHFD-FM's president, Max E. Smith, Sr. There's one addition to the Channel 11 News gallery, a Friday, 5/15/87 “Share the Spirit” ad (Jeff Heitz, Jill Olmsted). There are two additions to the News/Special Reports Ads gallery, both for 13 News reports, a Wednesday, 5/6/87 ad for a Brenda Hines report, “The Firm Resolve,” and a Wednesday, 5/13/87 ad for a Diane Larson report on the cost of a college education. There are three additions to the Channel 36 gallery, all for Cinema TV 36 Primetime Movies and other shows, including Diff'rent Strokes, Get Smart, Gimme a Break, Too Close for Comfort, Gunsmoke and The Late Show Starring Joan Rivers. The Tuesday, 5/5/87 ad is for “Barefoot in the Park” (Robert Redford), the Wednesday, 5/13/87 ad is for “Hang 'em High” (Clint Eastwood) and 21 Jump Street, Sunday on Fox, and the Thursday, 5/14/87 ad is for “For a Few Dollars More,” late night movie, “The Trouble With Harry” and Married...With Children, Sunday on Fox. There's one addition to the Radio Station Ads gallery, a Monday, 5/11/87 ad for WLQR's Anniversary Sweepstakes contest, sponsored by Jeffrey Mann Jewelers. There are also four additions to the Other Vintage ads gallery, including a Monday, 5/18/87 full-page ad for the grand opening of Builder's Square in Spring Meadows. There are two ads for Pepsi, as well. The first one is a Tuesday, 5/19/87 ad (No one celebrates Toledo like Pepsi Can!) Anybody out there have one of these commemorative cans? The other one is a Thursday, 5/21/87 ad for the Pepsi Skywriter, in Toledo, followed by a Thursday, 5/21/87 ad for CitiFest. More May, and June 1987 ads, from the online archives of The Toledo Blade are on the way...
