July 17, 2014: Tune In Your TV or VCR to WTOL-TV Toledo 11

 

There are eight more ads today, all from July 1994 plus one Random Pages gallery addition, a Friday, 7/29/94 Blade Peach Section story by Holden Lewis, “WGTE Aims to Get Toddlers Ready for School.” There's one addition to the Channel 11 gallery, a Thursday, 7/28/94 ad for Heritage House Furniture commercials airing on the next morning's broadcast of back-to-back episodes of The Golden Girls. There's one addition to the ToledoVision 5 gallery, a Tuesday, 7/12/94 ad for British Open Preview, another “It's TV5 For Golf!” ad. There are four additions to the Buckeye CableSystem gallery, starting with a Thursday, 7/12/94 ad for The CableSystem's “interactive” show where viewers competed to solve crossword puzzles. I don't recall this at all. If anyone else has any information on this “interactive channel” or this “home crosswords” show, please leave a comment about it. Next is a Friday, 7/22/94 ad for Comedy Central's “New Fall Season in July.” There are two more ads for those three new channels, WGN, Sci-Fi, and Flix, now going by the name, “Select Channels,” both of them Tuesday, 7/26/94 ads, a Sports Section ad, and a Peach Section ad, for a Cubs vs. Pirates game on WGN, Quantum Leap on Sci-Fi, and “The Swimmer” on Flix.. Today's last two ads are additions to the Other Vintage ads gallery, a Tuesday, 7/12/94 full-page ad designed to attract advertisers to The Blade, and a Sunday, 7/31/94 ad for Brondes Ford (No silly sales). August 1994 ads, from the online archives of The Toledo Blade are on the way...
