October 4, 2015: Covered in Festering Sores

There are ten more ads today, from the August 22-28, 1998 issue of TV Guide Magazine, and from August 22, 25, 26 & 27, 1998 editions of The Blade, plus three more Random Pages gallery additions from The Blade, starting with a Saturday 8/22/98 Religion Section story by Judy Tarjanyi, "Pastors Lament Loss of Access to WDMN-AM" which includes a picture of The Reverend Michael Pitts. Next are two Peach Section stories by Chris Borrelli, a Monday, 8/24/98 story, "Reporter Revels in Goofy Stories," about WNWO's Dave Hecht, followed by a Thursday, 8/27/98 story, "Toledo TV Bids Farewell to Reruns of 'M*A*S*H'." Of course now, in 2015 you can catch M*A*S*H, back on WTOL where it started, on ME-TV Toledo, weeknights 7-8pm & Sundays at 9:30 pm (Broadcast on 11.2 and on Buckeye Channel 111). There are three additions, all from TV Guide, to the FOX gallery, all for the series premeire of That '70s Show. There was a three-page color fold-out ad inside the front cover, part one (Flashback with FOX to a time when the key of life...) and part two (...was the key to your father's station wagon. That '70s Show...). There's a larger version of part two, here. There's also a Sunday, 8/23/98 two-part page-and-a-half ad for The Simpsons, "Lard of the Dance" and That '70s Show, "That '70's Pilot" (Wilmer Valderrama, Mila Kunis, Danny Masterson, Topher Grace, Ashton Kutcher, Laura Prepon). It also includes the close-up description for That '70s Show and some 8PM listings. The close-up was actually on the page after the ad. There are also three additions, all from The Blade, to the Buckeye CableSystem gallery starting with a Saturday, 8/22/98 Peach Section ad for The Angry Beavers on Nickelodeon. Next is a Wednesday, 8/26/98 half-page ad for "Good Will Hunting" (Matt Damon, Robin Williams), on Impulse Entertainment (Have an All Day Movie Ticket Summer!). There's also a Thursday, 8/27/98 Sports Section ad for The Little League Championship Game on ESPN2. There are two additions, both from TV Guide, to the Vintage Cable Ads gallery, a Saturday 8/22/98 full-page ad for "The Rat Pack" on HBO, and a Wednesday, 8/26/98 ad for South Park, "Chicken Pox" and Upright Citizens Brigade, "Story of the Toad" on Comedy Central. Today's last two ads, both from The Blade, are additions to the Other Vintage ads gallery, a Saturday, 8/22/98 ad for Toledo Mud Hens tickets ("Careful...If we can just hold steady a while longer, I think we can make it before the first inning!"), and a Thursday, 8/22/98 full-page ad (Food Town welcomes you to...The German American Festival).
