September 17, 2013: Life in the Minors

 

I added eleven more ads today, all from September 1988, plus four more Random Pages gallery additions from the pages of The Blade, starting with a 9/15/88 Peach Section story by Tom Ensign, “Channel 36 Toasting Itself For Three Years of Success.” It also includes an item on Toledo brothers Brian and Cleveland O'Neill III, who created the “Saturday Rocks” promos for CBS. Next is a Sunday, 9/18/88 TV Tab promo pic for Bonanza: The Lost Episodes, on CBN. There's also a Monday, 9/26/86 Business Pages story by Homer Brickey, “CableSystem Perfecting 'Pay-Per-View' Selection Via Silent Order System.” The last one is a Thursday, 9/29/88 Peach Section story, “WGTE Takes a Fine Look at Minor-League Baseball,” by Tom Ensign. You'll find an ad for that special below, the last of the six additions to the PBS gallery, all for Channel 30. The first one is a Wednesday, 9/14/88 ad for The Everly Brothers Rock'n'Roll Reunion, followed by a Thursday, 9/15/88 ad for the movie, “The Bridge on the River Kwai.” Next is a Friday, 9/16/88 ad for Sentimental Swing: The Music of Tommy Dorsey, followed by a Saturday, 9/17/88 ad for another movie, “From Here to Eternity.” There's also a Thursday, 9/22/88 ad for Call Governor Celeste, and a Thursday, 9/29/88 ad for the special, Life in the Minors, narrated by George Kell. There's one addition to the Buckeye CableSystem gallery, a Sunday, 9/25/88 full-page Toledo Magazine ad, for Murder, She Wrote and Miami Vice, on the USA Network. There are three additions to the Radio Station Ads gallery, all for WSPD-AM 1370. The first one is a Monday, 9/19/88 ad for Jude LaCava's 2 pm show, followed by a Tuesday, 9/20/88 ad for the “Live Free Sweepstakes,” and a Monday, 9/26/88 ad for Lee Kirk's 10 am show. The last ad today is an addition to the Other Vintage ads gallery, a Friday, 9/30/88 full-page ad for The Blade's Peach Section. October 1988 ads, from the online archives of The Toledo Blade are on the way...
