August 29, 1987: Sesqui!

 

I added eleven more ads today, all from December 1987, plus one Random Pages gallery addition, a Saturday, 12/26/87 Blade Peach Section story by Tom Ensign, “WGTE Special Focusing On Sesquicentennial Events.” There are no ads today for channels 11, 13, 24 or 36, but there are eight in the PBS gallery, all for channel 30. The first one is a Tuesday, 12/1/87 ad for Trying Times, “A Family Tree” (Rosanna Arquette, David Byrne) and Fawlty Towers, followed by a Thursday, 12/3/87 ad for The Wonderful World of Disney, “The Jungle Cat.” There's also a Saturday, 12/5/87 ad for two movies, “Zorro” and “The Story of Dr. Wassell” and a Monday, 12/7/87 ad for two musical specials, Elvis: Aloha From Hawaii and The Kingston Trio and Friends Reunion. Next is a Wednesday, 12/9/87 ad for a “Salute to Bing Crosby...” with Remembering Bing and the movie, “Holiday Inn” and a Thursday, 12/10/87 ad for The Wonderful World of Disney, “A Disney Christmas Gift” and Wild America, “The Babies.” And there's a Saturday, 12/12/87 ad for two more muasical shows, Mancini and Friends and The Lawrence Welk Show, “Winter Wonderland,” followed by a Monday, 12/28/87 ad for the special, Sesqui!, that was the subject of the Peach Section story above. There's one addition to the Buckeye CableSystem gallery, a Saturday, 12/5/87 ad for a University of Toledo vs. Detroit basketball game. There's also one addition to the Radio Station Ads gallery, a Tuesday, 12/8/87 ad for WLQR's Secret Song contest. Today's last ad is an addition to the Other Vintage ads gallery, a Monday, 12/28/87 full-page ad for Ice Capades at the Toledo Sports Arena, sponsored by Kroger, where kids could meet the Ewoks, in person. 1988 ads, from the online archives of The Toledo Blade are on the way...
