August 18, 2013: Only the Best for Toledo


I added fourteen more ads today, all from July, 1987, plus three more Random Pages gallery additions from The Blade. There's a Thursday, 7/2/87 story by Tom Ensign, “Toledo Focus of Telecasts For Columbus Audiences” and also includes several othe local TV and radio items. The next one is a Sunday, 7/5/87 TV Tab story by Andrew Edelstein, “'Car 54' Back In Service On Nick at Nite Lineup” which includes a picture of co-stars Fred Gwynne and Joe E. Ross. The last one is a Friday, 7/17/87 story by Tom Ensign, “Olmstead Leaving Ch. 11 To Seek A Master's Degree” and also includes one other item on the premiere of Werewolf on Fox. I believe Jill's last name was spelled wrong. It should have been spelled “Olmsted.” There are two additions to the Channel 13 gallery for their coverage of the Jamie Farr LPGA Toledo Classic at Glengarry Country Club. There's a Wednesday, 7/1/87 ad and a Friday, 7/3/87 ad. There are six additions to the Channel 36 gallery, including three for their Cinema TV 36 Primetime Movie 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 Wednesday, 7/8/87 ad was for “King Kong” and Werewolf, on Fox. The Thursday, 7/9/87 ad was for “On Golden Pond” (Jane Fonda, Henry Fonda, Katharine Hepburn) and again, Werewolf. The Friday, 7/17/87 ad was for “Barbarella” and also for a rerun of the Werewolf premiere, the late movie, “My Bloody Valentine” and for the Saturday night Fox shows, The New Adventures of Beans Baxter and Karen's Song. The other three ads are for premieres of Fox shows, a Friday 7/10/87 ad for Werewolf, a Friday, 7/17/87 ad for The New Adventures of Beans Baxter, and a Friday, 7/24/87 ad for Down and Out in Beverly Hills.

There are two additions to the Buckeye CableSystem gallery, a Friday, 7/17/87 ad for The Blade Instantnews on CableSystem channel 11, and a Sunday, 7/19/87 ad for a special offer for subscribers to Showtime and the Movie Channel.

There's one addition to the Radio Station Ads gallery, a Friday, 7/3/87 ad for Countdown to the Fireworks on WSPD-AM 1370.

There are also three additions to the Other Vintage ads gallery including two more Kroger full-page ads, a Saturday, 7/4/87 ad for the Toledo Sesqicentennial Fireworks, and a Monday, 7/6/87 ad for Toledo Zoo “Zoo-Pons.” There's also a Wednesday, 7/29/87 Food Town ad for the San Diego Chicken at the Toledo Mud Hens 8/12/87 game against Pawtucket.

August and September 1987 ads, from the online archives of The Toledo Blade are on the way...
