Jackson had a long-running midday show on KABC-AM for more than thirty years,
including during the time period of these listings. His chief competitor in his latter years
at KABC radio was Rush Limbaugh at KFI.

Re: RETRO: AMARILLO, TEXAS. TUESDAY, SEPT. 2ND, 1997
Wow, that's strange, I could have sworn that KVII/7 carried All My Children when I was
up there (1989-1993)....maybe they either didn't want to bother with a 1-day tape delay
or thought they'd be banging their heads against the wall trying to carry a soap opposite
Young & the Restless, but Dr. Quinn ?!? Really??

I had to do a double take of the listings, even checking weekend overnights-but no "All
My Children" in site on KVII. Of the other ABC affiliates listed in the edition, WFAA and
KAMC carried it at 11am, while KMID carried it at 12pm.

This was the series premiere of "The Protectors", one of the three components of "The
Bold Ones", which starred Leslie Nielsen:

Maybe -- it's not uncommon for the "Playboy" name to be censored for one reason or
another. TV Guide always listed the show as "Hugh Hefner", the show's host.

Isn't NBC on 7, CBS on 4, ABC on 5?

It is now, and has been since January 2, 1995. WBZ 4 was an NBC affiliate until that
time. 5 and 7 had swapped ABC and CBS a couple of times (1961 and 1972).

NBC has been on 7 all the time, during Profiler, Punky, Mario, Captain N, Hunter, ATeam, Batman Returns, 1600, etc, years on.

A number of points...in no particular order....

Let's play a game called "research". The internet can be useful for this.

While researching the internet, you may find a little history of Boston television. (Boston,
by the way, is nowhere near Houston.)

The current affiliation lineup amongst the 'Big 4' broadcast networks, plus PBS, is:

WGBH-Channel 2 (PBS)
WBZ-Channel 4 (CBS, and a CBS owned-and-operated station)

WCVB-Channel 5 (ABC, owned by Hearst)
WHDH-Channel 7 (NBC, owned by Sunbeam Television)
WFXT-Channel 25 (Fox, and a Fox owned-and-operated station)

Yes, there are CW, MyNetwork TV, Univision, Telemundo, and other stations, but let's
just focus on the above five. And yes, those channels reflect the heritage pre-digital
allotments and current 'virtual channels'. (I know at this point I just blew your mind, but
bear with me-and I don't mean Yogi Bear or Winne-The-F*@! Pooh bear).

Years ago, probably before you or your parents were born, (more specifically, the period
encompassing 1994-95), there was what's called an 'affiliation switch' between WBZChannel 4, then NBC, and WHDH-Channel 7, then CBS.

WBZ's owner, then Westinghouse (or "Group W"), bought the CBS network.

So, here you have WBZ Channel 4, an NBC station which DID air shows like Captain N,
Punky Brewster, SuperTrain, and um, perhaps the airing of Tim Burton's Batman
Returns at one time or another, suddenly finding itself being owned by the same
company that now owned CBS.

Over at WHDH Channel 7, which carried CBS, the thought must have been along the
lines of "well what will happen now, 'cause our network and our competitor, channel 4,
are owned by the same company. What will happen to us?"

Here's what happened, more or less. CBS did in fact change stations. They moved to
Channel 4 (which had been carrying NBC for years), from Channel 7, which had been
the CBS station.

Where did NBC go? They went to Channel 7. There were a few rumors that Fox (a
network you may or may not be familiar with) would switch to channel 7, but that didn't
happen, and it stayed on channel 25. (Sorry, I may have blown your mind again there).

So, the point is this: Channel 7 in Boston was never 'always NBC'. They joined the NBC
network in 1995, long after "Punky Brewster", "The A-Team", "Bonanza" and "Hello,
Larry" had left the primetime airwaves.

CBS, which HAD been on Channel 7, went to Channel 4, and NBC, which HAD been on
Channel 4, went to Channel 7.

1994: NBC on WBZ Channel 4, CBS on WHDH Channel 7
1995: NBC on WHDH Channel 7, CBS on WBZ Channel 4

I hope this clears up confusion. And again, I recommend some 'reasearch' on the
internet before making a claim that a specific TV station has always been with a specific
network. Or what cookie Lassie eats.

----

Unrelated, but even in your area of Houston (I'm assuming your in the area, given the
unhealthy obsession with obscure UHF channels in the Houston market), there have
been a few network affiliation changes. LONG, LONG ago, before you were born,
KPRC-Channel 2, which you may or may not know today as being the NBC station, once
carried...get ready for this...OTHER NETWORKS. Channel 2, in their earliest days going
back to 1949, carried some network shows not only from NBC, but also CBS, ABC, and
the long-gone DuMont Network. Once Channels 11 and 13 signed on the air, Channel 2
lost CBS and ABC programs, and stayed with NBC. (DuMont shut down around 1956).
Channel 2, by the way, has no intentions as to be going the path of KETH, joining the
PBJ network, or relocating to an abandoned Shoney's located three blocks away from
KUBE's transmitter site.

Or, just read MCarney's post, which clearly explained what happened in much, much
shorter detail.

The End.

Re: Retro: Boston - Sunday, September 29, 1969

The old WNAC-7 was a primary CBS affiliate from it's debut on June 21st, 1948 through
December 31st, 1960, and again from March 19th, 1972 through (as WHDH) January
1st, 1995.

In it's earliest years, it carried a few DuMont shows (as did WBZ-4), and was a
secondary affiliate of ABC from 1948 until November of 1957.

It was an ABC affiliate from January 1st, 1961 through March 18th, 1972.

Boston's Channel 5 (at first the original WHDH, now WCVB) was an ABC affiliate from
it's sign-on in November, 1957 through December 31st, 1960; then was a CBS affiliate
from January 1st, 1961 through March 18th, 1972 and has been an ABC affiliate since
WCVB took over the channel on March 19th, 1972.

So Boston's Channel 7 has been a primary affiliate of all of the traditional "big three"
networks during the station's history.

Would you mind taking note of what programs on these and the other affiliates were

"Main Street" was an occasional discussion series hosted by Bryant Gumbel, which,
starting this season, replaced its Afterschool Special knockoff, "Special Treat". That
being said, what was normally seen at these times? I think WXFL showed "Trapper John
MD" at 4, but I'm not sure.

I believe "Hour Magazine" was normally seen at 4 on WCPX and WTVT, with Jeopardy!
at 5 on WCPX. What was WCTV's normal schedule?

CBS Late Night: WCPX, with "Simon & Simon" and "Madigan", showed that night's
schedule, with WJXT and WTVT normally showing it on a week delay. However, "The
Dark Side of Innocence", originally broadcast March 18, 1986, was on a two-week delay,
due to a CBS News special that was screened on March 25: "CBS Reports: The
Vanishing Family-Crisis in Black America". (Source:
http://epguides.com/CBSLateMovie/ )

Did WCTV only show half of CBS Late Night, closing down after "Simon & Simon", or is
this schedule only incomplete?

Up until this season, WXFL would be "live" with the network from 10:30AM to 12 Noon,
then 1PM to 4PM, with other times replaced with syndicated shows and the local noon
news. However, starting this season, they showed "Santa Barbara" on a delay at 9AM
with a syndicated drama rerun (in this case, "Quincy", at 3). As far as I knew, they
always bumped the 10AM NBC show, initially for "Romper Room" until 1982, then for a
syndicated program; I recall the 1984-1986 "Lets Make a Deal" and reruns of Jim Perry's
"Card Sharks" being seen at this time as well.

The 12:30PM slot was also always bumped, initlally as part of a noon news hour, later
for "All In The Family" when the news was shortened to a half-hour. I believe other
syndied shows were also seen in that slot. In consequence, Tampa Bay never saw the
final few seasons of "The Doctors" (the soap, not the talk show, which ironically, WFLA
carries today) or "Search For Tomorrow" (which was long gone from WTVT when it
moved from CBS to NBC).

1:30 Comedy Tonight
Earlier this season, "Comedy Tonight" was seen at 12:30AM, with Dave on a delay at

1AM, due to contractual considerations -- WXFL's parent, Media General, was coproducer. Later on, it moved to after Dave, when it was already cancelled.

It's too bad no cable system outside Orlando pulled a "WKID" and showed WFTV latenights after another channel left the air -- I believe WFTV was one of the first stations in
the region to be on the air 24/7, with old movies and reruns.

A rare independent (pre-Fox!) station showing "Wheel" and "Jeopardy!"

Yep...KCOP in Los Angeles was another then-indie that showed Wheel and J! (and in
that order) before the two eventually moved to a network station (KCBS, and later
KABC). Ironically, KCOP and WOGX are now both owned by Fox.

Interesting that the Boston affiliate didn't even bother to show the final day of the Winter
Olympics, and instead showed a trio of forgettable movies.

WNAC was owned by RKO General, so it wasn't surprising. Also at the time NBC was in
negotiations to buy the station (didn't happen due to the questions about the
Cleveland/Philadelphia swap) and CBS was anxious to move to another station
(ultimately to WHDH the next January).

Re: Retro: Boston - Sunday, February 28, 1960
An elderly friend seems to think that a decision was made the day before, after the U.S.
hockey team upset Russia to keep their hold-medal hopes alive, by CBS to split the final
day of Winter Olympics coverage from Squaw Valley so instead of running from 2 to 5
P.M. EST; it would run from 11 A.M. to 1:30 P.M. EST and from 4:30 to 5.

My friend seems to think that was done to permit the final U.S. hockey game against
Czechoslovakia (which they won to win the first U.S. men's hockey gold medal; the
"Forgotten Miracle Of Squaw Valley") live and in full. In fact, he recalls the game being
live with something else running on CBS stations from 2 to 4:30 P.M. that day.

Nevertheless, the 4:30-5 P.M. EST portion was likely the closing ceremonies, aired live.

Re: Retro: Boston - Sunday, February 28, 1960

At that time the Globe didn't have a separate TV section - the listings for the week were
all on one page in the paper itself. I checked the entire paper for that day and there were
no TV updates changing the times for Olympic coverage, including on the sports pages.
It is possible there may have been changes in later editions.

Re: Retro: Pittsburgh/Youngstown/Wheeling 4/9/1984

Jeffersons at 7 AM on WPGH???? NOT back in 1984. That type of show never ran that
early. Most off network recent sitcoms had a 4 to 8 PM time committment or a 10 to
Midnight commitment. My guess was the Flintstones likely ran in that slot.

Actually I looked up the listing in the Press and they did run Flintstones at 7 AM and
again at 430 PM. Sort of surprised they ran Mork & Mindy at 6. That show failed in
syndication miserably. By the fall of 1983, stations were resting it during the school year
and running it evenings in the summers for the next couple years. Other stations moved
Mork to middays rather than running it in evenings. BUT WPGH DID run it in evenings at
6 at that point. Other than that this schedule is quite accurate.

You also did not list WPCB though they were all Christian with a couple exceptions of
some sporting shows on Saturdays. So they were not a major player. By 1985, though
there was a huge hole for another independent station in the market and WPCB had
many offers from secular broadcasters but Ron Hombre and Company refused to sell it
to anyone. By 1989, many older shows on in most markets were not on in Pittsburgh. 5
Commercial stations was not enough to go around. In the fall of 1991 a huger hole was
created Labor Day Weekend when WPTT was sold and went all home shopping. A few
weeks after, they added a few network rejects. Then in january of 92 they sold
afternoons to the company that sold them to buy WPGH, Sinclair. Sinclair began
programmin 3 to 12 Midnight daily and in early 1993 began programming Noon to 1 AM
daily. In the Fall of 1995, WPTT resumed being a full time independent with UPN (which
they picked up January before). Finally in 1996, Channel signed on. previously a
Johnstown station and now in the Pittsburgh market and as a WB station. Eventually
WPTT and Channel 19 swapped UPN and WB. But finally in 1996, the hole was filled.
Pittsburgh should have had 3 true independents by 1986. They were one of the most
underserved markets anywhere.

Re: Retro: Carolina-Tennessee Saturday, September 11, 1971

It's no surprise that WSJK-2 was off-the-air on Saturdays.

As late of the 1970's, some PBS member stations were still not yet on a seven-day
broadcast week.

For instance, in New Hampshire for almost all of the 1970's, the only station of New
Hampshire Public Television that was on the air seven days a week was flagship WENH11 (and it's two translators).

The other four "full-power" NHPTV stations (all on UHF) would only go on the air on

Saturdays if the network was carrying special programming, mainly University of New
Hampshire men's hockey games (for nearly four decades, NHPTV produced televised
UNH men's hockey games). In the 1970's, several of the telecasts were on Saturdays
and the NHPTV "full power" UHF's would sign-on the air on Saturdays to carry the
games and whatever other programs preceded or followed the games (back then,
WENH's Saturday schedule usually ran from 4 to 11 P.M.).

And closer to my home in Boston, WGBH-2 didn't adopt seven-day-a-week broadcasting
on a regular basis until the mid-1960's. Prior to that, the station had first a weekdaysonly schedule and then a Sunday-through-Friday schedule, with much of the Sunday
fare being public-affairs programs rejected by the commercial stations (with commercial
announcements deleted and replaced by public service announcements and/or program
promos).

I believe Rev. Wilkinson's book was probably "The Cross and the Switchblade", which
was made into a film a year earlier, which starred Pat Boone and a young Erik Estrada.

Considering how long KGO has touted its 'long history' of local news coverage, I'm
shocked that they didn't have a newscast back then. Anyone know when it started?

Yes - that almost seems like a mis-print. IIRC, in 61, many network O&Os and affiliates
only did 15 minutes of news at 11:00, but nothing at all? Seems wrong to me, too. I
recall that San Diego's ABC affiliate - XETV - had no news department at all in those
days, but I always figured they got away with that because they were licensed in Mexico.

Growing up in LA, I do recall that in the early 60s KABC-TV's news was kind of a lowbudget joke, and was at the bottom in the ratings. They ran early local news at 4:30,
while KNBC and KNXT (now KCBS-TV) ran local news at 6:00. And the KABC anchor Baxter Ward (later an LA politician of some note) spent a lot of time on commentary
because (it seemed) like he didn't have enough filmed and tape stories to fill a half hour
or hour.

In those days, I believe ABC as a network was also rated third by quite a margin, so it's
possible that the network wasn't willing to make much of a commitment to news on their
O&O stations.

Another news note - the "Ramey" listed on KPIX's news was Wanda Ramey - one of the
first major female news anchors - starting on KPIX in 1959. She was very well thought of
in the Bay Area, and had retired by the time I moved to SF in the 70s.

Here's a picture of Ramey interviewing a candidate for Governor - Ronald Reagan in
1966:

Given the title, I would say that Headline Edition at 6pm was KGO's newscast...

...not true re XETV/6. The TV Guide for the second week of February 1961 not only lists
a 7:00 PM weeknightly newscast for them, anchored by Lionel Van Deerlin, but also a
Mon/Tue/Thu/Fri news feature program at 10:30 PM titled Dimension 6. There's even a
half-page ad for the two programs on Page A-57...

ET/PT.

The other fifteen minutes of that hour (8-8:15 A.M. ET/PT) on CBS consisted of a

network newscast, anchored in 1961 by Richard C. Hottelett. KOLO-8 Reno cleared it.

That Fall, CBS launched a news and features show titled "Calendar" airing at 10 A.M.
EDT/EST (it's cohost was a then-unknown CBS correspondent named Harry Reasoner;
this program made him a "household name"). Once "Calendar" premiered, the 8 A.M.
newscast was dropped and the Captain went back to being an hour.

Re: Retro: Northern California Mon, Apr 3, 1960

The reason I asked if KPIX ran the Captain on delay, was due to the fact as noted in the
original post, KPIX ran an entirely different episode of the Captain than ch 8 Reno and
10 Sacramento did. Or could it be that 5 ran the Captain from the network, with Reno
and Sacto getting it on delay?

Some thoughts about Motown ...

WWJ, 1 a.m.: This was, of course, the station's in-studio bowling game show. I believe it
usually ran at 7 p.m., between Huntley-Brinkley and prime time. Bowling continued to be

popular on northern U.S. local stations well into the late 1970s. But it seems that the
"yuppie" era of the 1980s pretty much finished off tenpins on TV, except for ABC
Saturday afternoon coverage, until ESPN helped it blossom again by the 1990s. Not
having seen these shows, I wonder whether or not there was a jackpot awarded to the
highest scorer of the day and a subsequent tournament of the week on Friday, or
whether the winner of a frame got a small cash award, or what. Do any of you up in the
Midwest and the Northeast remember much about these local competitions?

WKBD: An indie UHF in an otherwise all-VHF market (save public outlet WTVS) surely
had some rough going in its first year, but this one, unlike some others, did have some
ambition, carrying a Red Wings hockey game. It may well have caught on quicker in its
market than was the case with indies elsewhere (e.g., Cleveland, Baltimore, etc.)

...Hollywood a Go Go was Sam Riddle's KHJ-TV/9 Los Angeles rock 'n roll music show
Ninth Street West repackaged for syndication; KHJ-TV and CKLW-TV were both owned
by RKO General at the time. And as for Windsor Wrestling, would that have been Ed
"The Sheik" Farhat's Detroit/Toronto NWA franchise promotion, or perhaps a Canadianbased independent outfit?...

However, not all RKO General stations aired Hollywood a Go Go. Case in point: New
York City, where WOR-TV/9 passed on it . . . and the show ended up airing instead on
WPIX/11. WOR-TV, however, had their own rock 'n' roll music show, Let's Go Go.

I use to watch Beat the Champ all the time. It aired on weekends in the 1:00 am slot. It
was a contest betwene a pro and an amateur. If the amateur won he got a trophy that
said "I Beat the Champ " and if the amateur lost, he got one that said "I tried to Beat the
Champ". How about that.

In Boston, "Hollywood A Go-Go" aired on Group W/Westinghouse's WBZ-4 on Saturday
afternoons from 5 to 6 P.M. during 1965, beginning on May 22nd of that year.

The posted schedule says WJBK-TV2 ran CBS News at 7:05am. Channel 2 did not run
the Morning News or any CBS morning show the entire time it was a CBS affiliate.
Besides at this point in time the CBS Morning News (with Mike Wallace) aired from

10:00-10:30 am (channel two did not carry that either, nor did they carry Calendar with
Harry Reasoner, the program it replaced). And CBS never started their news at :05 past
the hour.

Have to correct you (or, more accurately, let Wesley Hyatt correct you):
The "CBS Morning News" was on from 7:05-7:30 AM from August 16, 1965March 28, 1969; it expanded to an hour (7-8 AM) on March 31, 1969. Mike
Wallace was still anchoring when the broadcast moved from 10 AM to the
earlier time; Joseph Benti replaced him in 1966 and was still anchoring when
the expansion came.

I know of some areas where the 25-minute newscast aired from 7:30-7:55
or 7:35-8; maybe you lived in one of those.

The Storer-owned CBS affiliates seemed to have a lot of problems with the
idea of clearing network programs before noon in those days; look at some
of my Atlanta (WAGA) postings from the '60s or some of Tim Lones' Cleveland
(WJW) listings.

On a different subject, didn't Channel 4 carry "Bowling For Dollars" in the '70s?

Thanks, bpatrick. Basic point: WJBK-TV (and apparently other Storer stations, too) did
not take the CBS News broadcasts running as lead-ins to Captain. Nor the 10am
broadcasts. As I recall, channel six did take the early news - at least at some point - but
never the 10am shows because of their local "Happy Homemaker" (actually Copper
Kettle) show hosted by the station owner's mistress. Any resemble to any character
played later by Betty White are purely coincidental.

Interesting to not see the Turkey Day Lions game listed anywhere. I didn't realize the
home blackouts even extended to a holiday tradition like that.

At the time, all home games were blacked out, whether or not they've been sold out at
any time. Since 1973, however, home games could be seen if they were sold out within
72 hours.

yes, WDIV was one of the stations that had a local "Bowling For Dollars" show.

In Boston, where candlepin bowling (small balls and skinny pins) is quite common, the
local "Bowling For Dollars" franchise was called "Candlepins For Cash", and had a long
run on the old WNAC-7, for most of that time weekdays at 5:30 P.M., leading into the
station's local 6 P.M. newscasts.

"Candlepins For Cash", however, was last seen in Boston on the old WXNE-25.

Sadly, the host of the show during it's WNAC days, Bob Gamere, is at this writing in jail,
having been convicted of child porn charges.

Unlike the Detroit (proper) stations at the time, CKLW-TV (Channel 9/Windsor, ON) was
licensed by the CRTC (the Canadian equivalent of the US FCC). But CKLW-TV was still
considered part of the Detroit Metro and was programmed as such. Was CKLW-TV able
to broadcast in color to the Detroit market, even though color TV was not officially
sanctioned in Canada until 1967? I know that many of the programs on CKLW-TV came
from the states (and were specifically programmed for the Detroit audience). Even
though color TV was already growing in the USA, was Channel 9 able to broadcast in
color to the Detroit audience, or did they have to wait for CRTC approval in '67? Just
curious!

Re: Retro: Detroit/Toledo Thurs, Nov 25, 1965
CKLW-TV functioned as an indie station much of the time. It did carry some US
syndicated programming (as did other Canadian stations) and old movies - generally still
offered in B&W at the time.. But much of their schedule was local shows and those were
produced at the station's studios in Windsor. At this time, the station did maintain a sales
office in Detroit. Many station employees, including air talent, commuted from Michigan.

See the CKLW schedule posted for Monday, 04/08/1968.

Re: Retro: Michigan Mon, Apr 8, 1968
Wasn't this the day of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s funeral??

If it was, I would think that at least part of the daytime schedules on network stations
would have been pre-empted for live coverage.

Re: Retro: Michigan Mon, Apr 8, 1968

TV Guide would show scheduled programming, not last minute preemptions.

Was the early afternoon movie on channel 9 with Bill Kennedy as host or had he moved
to channel 50 at this point? I seem to recall he moved later and channel 50 was still allsports (like ESPN later on).

It's curious that channel 4, WWJ-TV, is running Steve Allen (apparently the syndicated
Filmways show) at 9am. Wasn't this show, like his earlier Group W show, intended for
late night?

The funeral was the following day. Due to the funeral, the Academy Awards was
postponed for 48 hours until 4/10.

I believe WKNX carried the feed of the captain at 8, followed by the Central feed at 9 -- I
had other TVGs of this edition from the mid-to-late 1960s that carried the Captain in this
fashion, though early on they carried both feeds in its entirety.

Fascinating.

The Johnny in Mary Kay and Johnny was Johnny Olson, later announcer for The Price Is
Right and other Goodson-Todman game shows, as well as The Jackie Gleason Show.

Frederic Wertham was a self-aggrandizing quack on a career against comic books. He
almost succeeded in killing the industry and did get rid of many of the golden age titles.
He went and interviewed prison inmates. They said they had read comic books as kids;
so, he concluded comics cause crime. He also decided the Batman and Robin were "the
dream-wish of two homosexuals living together" (which probably says more about him
than about the characters). Just shows - then and now - any nut can get air time.

The full title of "Newsreel" was "The Esso Newsreel," an early local news broadcast
sponsored by the oil company in markets in the Northeast. Esso (Standard Oil of New
Jersey) is now Exxon. Oil companies don't advertise much any more. They don't clean
your windshield and check your oil as they fill up your tank either. And they don't give
free glasses or dishes with a fill-up.

Henry Fonda played "Mister Roberts" in the original Broadway cast, as he did in the film.
None of the other cast members were in the movie. Marlon Brando's sister, Jocelyn, was
the nurse (played by "I've Got A Secret's" Betsy Palmer on film). Steven Hill, DA Adam
Schiff on Law & Order and the first head of the Impossible Mission Force, played
Stefanowski (played by Harry Carey, Jr. in the movie).

WNHC-6 (now WTNH on Channel 8) New Haven didn't go on the air until June 15th, so
the only way New Havenites could have seen "Tonight On Broadway" was:

(1) If they had a huge antenna aimed towards New York City (I think there may have
been a few elevated areas in and west of New Haven where TV sets could pick up the
New York stations), and,

(2) Perhaps at the WNHC studios, since the station was ten weeks away from going on
the air and may have had much of it's studio and control-room equipment in-place,
allowing those at the station to be able to watch the program.

I'm not 100% sure, but I have heard an urban legend that at first, WNHC got network
programs merely by picking-up the WNBT, WCBS, WABD, and (when it went on the air
that Summer) WJZ-7 (now WABC) signals off-air.

For many years, in response to Wertham's scare tactics, comics became very
conservative and went away from the wilder action of the golden age of the 30's and
40's. Many comic books had the "Comics Code Authority" seal of aproval stamped on
the cover. Anyone know when that went away?

Use of the code seal withered away starting in 1971 when Spiderman published a threeissue story line dealing with drug abuse which the code authority would not approve.
Stan Lee went ahead any way. After that, newer publishers often didn't bother with it.
Established publishers treated the seal as optional and would publish selected titles or
specific issues without it.

It lasted longer than the NAB Code and the MPAA ("Hays Office) movie code.

The "Esso Newsreel" was seen on Mondays and Thursdays on NBC
from mid-1946 to February 1948, when it expanded to five nights
a week, gained a new sponsor (Camel) and was renamed the "Camel
Newsreel Theatre." Esso did sponsor "Your Esso Reporter" on CBS
in the summer of 1951; it aired only in the East and Far West, where
Esso was marketed. And probably every one of those markets had a
local "Your Esso Reporter" in the 1950s (WFMY and WTVD did where I
lived).

BTW, you can't get a free road map at a gas station anymore.

You can't get anything at a gas station anymore, other than gas, unless you go in THE
STORE!

I miss the old greasy dudes with those dirty handkerchiefs in their back pockets asking
"filler up sir" (Dads always drove). "Check under the hood for ya? Now, if you asked the
girl behind the counter in THE STORE if she would check under your hood, she would
probably call a cop.

Remember taking long road trips with your folks and gas stations were the place to go
(and I mean that!). All you could get was a Coke-cola and some Nabs, and my Dad
made us finish the sodas before we left the station.

I mean that deposit on the bottle was 3 cent, I think!

"Your Esso Reporter" was on WBZ in Boston. There are some clips of "Esso Reporter"
broadcasts from Brazil on YouTube, where it seems they sponsored broadcasts through
the 60s.

"The Johnny in Mary Kay and Johnny was Johnny Olson, later announcer for The Price
Is Right and other Goodson-Todman game shows, as well as The Jackie Gleason
Show."

You'd logically assume that, since Johnny Olson was host of a daytime variety show on
DuMont, "Johnny Olson's Rumpus Room", which he carried over from New York radio.

But the TV show Mary Kay and Johnny featured a different Johnny. he was Johnny
Stearns, real-life husband of his TV co-star Mary Kay Stearns. They had a baby son,
Christopher, born at the end of 1948, whose impending birth was worked into the show
rather like Lucille Ball would work her son Desi Jr.'s birth into I Love Lucy five years later.
Unlike Lucy and Desi Jr., however, Christopher Stearns actually was worked into the
cast as an infant and began appearing regularly on camera six weeks after his birth. He
was the youngest regular on any network series in American TV history for six decades.
(He's now 64 years old, but has not appeared on TV since his parents' sitcom ended in
the spring of 1950.) Christopher Stearns' TV career was short but his record as the
youngest regular in any American series TV cast was unbroken from January 1949 until
Kourtney Kardashian's son Mason Disick appeared starting literally at the moment of his
birth in December 2009 as a regular in his mother's reality show Keeping Up With The
Kardashians.
After Mary Kay and Johnny folded, Johnny Stearns became a behind-the-scenes
producer for NBC (including serving as Steve Allen's first producer for the Tonight show,

starting even before it became a network show), and a busy voiceover artist. He was
busy in that role until his passing in 2001 at the age of 85. Mary Kay Stearns is alive. 87
years old and living in retirement in California.

The "Esso Reporter" also aired on NBC3 (WPTZ-WRCV-KYW) in Philly during the same
period - probably other markets in Esso's (S-O, Standard Oil of NJ, later Exxon)
operating territory, as well. In the midwest, Standard Oil of Indiana (later AMOCO and
still later BP) sponsored the Standard Oil News Round-up ("brought to you by more than
10,000 Standard Oil dealers and agents throughout Mid-America who give meaning to
the pledge: You expect more from Standard and you get it").

Also in Philly, an oil company sponsor did the first traffic reporting in the region as "the
Atlantic (later Arco) Go Patrol," first exclusively on WCAU.

It's been years since oil companies advertised but back then they were blue-chip
advertisers and sponsored blue-chip programming.

"Your Esso Reporter" also appeared on radio stations within the Esso marketing area
(along the East Coast from Maine to South Carolina, and across to Tennessee,
Arkansas, and Louisiana).

"Esso Reporter" sponsorship was exclusive to one station in each market.

According to "Esso Reporter" listings on some old Esso road maps I have (I actually
collect road maps!), the radio version was mostly heard on NBC stations, although in a
few cities, the radio version was broadcast on a CBS affiliate.

In Ohio, The Sohio Reporter aired for many years on Radio and on TV in Cleveland,
Youngstown, Toledo, Cincinnati, Columbus, Zanesville and Dayton. WXEL/WJW-TV had
Sohio Reporter with Warren Guthrie from 1951-1963..in 1953, the TV audience was
estimated at 500,000 for the nightly 11PM Newscast,..over all seven stations..

...in addition to the NBC run, Your Esso Reporter also had a CBS prime time slot from 12
July to 13 September 1951, according to Brooks & Marsh. However, that run -- 9:00 to
9:30 ET/PT on Thursdays -- was only seen in the Eastern and Pacific time zones, where
Esso was marketed; in the Midwest, where the same company used the trade name
Enco, a live production of Meet Corliss Archer was fed from Hollywood instead. The
same script was performed live the following night at 10:00 PM ET/PT for those stations
that had carried Your Esso Reporter; what the Midwest got at that time, Brooks & Marsh

don't say...

So yeah, no "Jeopardy!" airing in Nashville at this time, but viewers were treated
to two airings of syndicated "Cosby Show" reruns on 2, along with double runs of
"Mama's Family", "The Judge" and two airings of "Love Connection"
on 17. Between that station and channel 30 you get three different airings of Robert
'Success N Life' Tilton. Best of all, you get a double run of "Bonanza" and three
airings of "Studs" on channel 30, because one or two just wasn't enough.

How many stations cleared "Brothers" when it went into syndication? Apparently not
many -- I believe WGBS Philadelphia was another station that carried the show.

For that reason, I also don't see any listings for PBS stations in the region -- WDCN,
WCTE Cookesville or WKGB (KET) & WKYU Bowling Green.

Retro: This Week In TV Guide, April 4, 1970 - MSP Edition
This week, we take a look at the state of variety and talk shows circa 1970. There's also
a historic final match in bowling's Firestone Tournament of Champions, another political
discussion in Letters to the Editor, a profile of The Brady Bunch's Robert Reed, and a
preview of the (technological) shape of things to come...

As always your comments, both positive and negative, are welcome.

How long did 'CCO air Lassie on a week(?) delay? Network feed would have been
at 6 PM CT. Guess they wanted that 6:00 newscast every night.

So Robert Reed expected "The Brady Bunch" to be a realistic show. Didn't the fact that
Sherwood Schwartz, the man who gave us "Gilligan's Island", was the producer tip him
off?

As for "Lassie", the Twin Cities was not the only market it was shown on tape delay.
Somewhere around 1966 WHDH, the then-CBS affiliate in Boston, delayed "Lassie" and
"The John Forsythe Show" by a week and aired them 5p-6p on Saturday nights. They
had movies on Sunday airing in the fringe time before network prime time.

Re: Retro: This Week In TV Guide, April 4, 1970 - MSP Edition

Surprised that WTCN 11 as an independent station owned by Metromedia was not airing
WOnderama with Bob McCallaster on Sunday mornings. Channel 5 WNEW TV New
York, 11 KTTV Los Angeles, 5 WTTG DC, and newly signed on independents in the 70's
ran it as well. Also even ABC affiliate 9 KMBC Kansas City ran Wonderama but they only
ran it for 2 hours and not 3...WHY??? Because one hour of the three hour Wonderama
show employed Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig, and Daffy Duck cartoons in which all the
Metromedia independents had rights to. The Kansas City station did not have those
rights so they ran only live segements. Wonderama was a live show with a large
audience of kids where they had various game segements, music segements, and guest
appearances. It was taped during the week in the afternoon to air Sundays.

ran it as well. Also even ABC affiliate 9 KMBC Kansas City ran Wonderama but they only
ran it for 2 hours and not 3...WHY??? Because one hour of the three hour Wonderama
show employed Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig, and Daffy Duck cartoons in which all the
Metromedia independents had rights to. The Kansas City station did not have those
rights so they ran only live segements. Wonderama was a live show with a large
audience of kids where they had various game segements, music segements, and guest
appearances. It was taped during the week in the afternoon to air Sundays.
Marckd, not sure how long after this it was, but from my own memory banks I know
WTCN was airing Wonderama on Sunday mornings by 1973 (someone on another
message board mentions it airing in 73-74). Wikipedia [sic] says that Metromedia
purchased WTCN in 1971 and took it over in 1972; that could explain the timeline.

Re: Retro: This Week In TV Guide, April 4, 1970 - MSP Edition
The following week (April 11th-17th, 1970), much network programing was pre-empted
for the Apollo 13 space flight.

The "big three" had each pre-empted a couple of hours early that afternoon to show the
launch and another half-hour late that afternoon to cover the maneuver whereas the
command module separated from the third stage of the Saturn 5 rocket and docked with
the lunar module (which during launch was in a shroud between the command module
and the third stage of he rocket).

The networks weren't planning any more live coverage (apart from brief progress
reports) until the spacecraft was to go into orbit around the moon on Tuesday, April 14th.

Of course, late on the evening of April 13th, everything changed (the service module
exploded, forcing the astronauts to use the lunar module as a "lifeboat"), and the
networks broke into regular programming to report on the emergency. They were on the
air all night, and there were frequent updates and several special programs through the
splashdown on the 17th.

Re: Retro: This Week In TV Guide, April 4, 1970 - MSP Edition
OH That explains why Wonderama was missing. I had always thought Metromedia
owned Channel 11 Minneapolis since "The Beginning Of Time" (like in the late 50's??).
So thius means that Wonderama hit Channel 11 in 1971 sometime when Metromedia
bought them.

Now a mystery to me - Why would WTCN as a Metromedia general entertainment
station with strong shows want NBC affiliation in 1978/1979??? My theory is THEY DID
NOT. NBC just did not want to affiliate with Channel 9 when Hubbard evicted them from
Channel 5 for ABC. My theory is NBC twisted arms at WTCN and they decided to go
ahead and affiliate. They then sold the cartoons and less desirable sitocms they lacked
room for to Channel 9 who had no cartoons or sitcoms to speak of as an ABC station
plus back then boosting to 40 hours a week of news was not an option. Still Channel 11
kept the strongest sitcoms and ran them as an NBC affiliate. They did sell Channel 11 in
1982 to Gannett who moved the station to more of a traditional network station with
more first run syndication and news. Channel 9 stayed a traditional independent till the
early 2000's when talk and reality became the in thing.

I'm fairly certain that it was during George C. Scott's co-hosting of the Mike Douglas
Show this week that Scott sarcastically read the lyrics to "Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My
Head" in dramatic fashion to show how absurd they were without music.

I believe because no network wanted to get saddled with KMSP, which at the time was a
poorly-rated, poorly-performed station, so when KSTP got ABC (and WCCO opting to
keep CBS), NBC had no choice but to affiliate with WTCN. In the end the tables were
turned -- KMSP did much better as an independent superstation, while WTCN's ratings
plummetted, especially due to being saddled with NBC, at the time when its ratings were
at its lowest.

His reading was also accompanied by "rain" actually falling on him, starting with a few
sprinkles and ending with a downpour, all while acting like nothing has happened.

Re: Retro: West Virginia Saturday, October 14, 1972
I need to make a correction. I'm so used to listing Carol Burnett on
CBS stations Saturdays at 10 that I forget sometimes that she did not
move to that timeslot until December 1972. The 10 PM program on WCHS
should be "Mission: Impossible."

At the time (October) Carol aired Wednesdays at 8 (ET); Sonny and Cher
aired Fridays at 8. As of December, Carol moved to Saturdays at 10, Sonny
and Cher to her former Wednesday slot, and "Mission: Impossible" to Fridays
at 8 (although it was Carol's summer replacement in 1973).

Re: Hawaii, March 20-24, 1972

And of course, the network newscasts were seen very late at night because they had to
be recorded off the network feed in Los Angeles, flown across the Eastern Pacific, and
ferried to the stations.

The ABC and NBC newscasts aired on a ten-and-a-half hour delay; while the CBS
newscast was on a twelve-hour delay (this assumes that the 6:30 P.M. ET---3:30
Pacific---feed was taped and flown across the ocean).

Better than nothing, I presume.

1 PM Baseball: Rangers-Tigers (why two stations in Oklahoma
City carried this game is beyond me)
I'll bet it was a typo; the NBC affiliate probably carried the NBC game, Brewers-Yankees
(NBC didn't have Saturday afternoon exclusivity yet).

Right, NBC didn't get exclusivity until 1984, as part of the final TV contract for NBC and
ABC.
I'm assuming KWTV part of the Rangers' regional TV network, and the 'typo' would be
channel 4 showing the NBC telecast?

KOCO 5 Alive Oklahoma City (ABC)
10:30 Ho Ho Show

No comment. :-X
It was a children's show that ran for many years on KOCO. Here's a clip from 1972,
when it was on on weekdays:

Re: Retro: Oklahoma Tuesday, April 10, 1979
700 Club at 7 AM on KXTX??? Unusual - Usually that aired live at 10 AM eastern, 9 AM
Central - CBN stations had cartoons in the 7 to 9 AM slot - I vaguely remember though
CBN experimented in VA Beach in the SUmmer of 79 and moved religion to 7 AM and a
movie late morning and that fall reinstaed cartoons. I guess KXTX did that as well.

Would love to have a schedule from November of 1979 from this market - By then three
independent stations in Oklahoma City signed on - maybe one from 1981 - by then Tulsa
had 2 indies sign on - When you can - Thanks - if you can

Was this a nightly program or a one-time special?
Probably a weekly program, since most stations were running different shows
at 6:30 each night at the time; the practice of "stripping" didn't really become
the norm until about 1980 or '81. In fact, I was surprised to see KOCO not carrying
"Tic Tac Dough" at 6:30 because I know they eventually did.

Also, I have in the past posted schedules from the 1980 TV Guide Fall Preview issue,
and will get up some from the '81 Fall Preview issue.

The paper in Kingman should have carried the listings for KPHO-TV, given that it had
statewide coverage (except for the Tucson market) when it was an independent station.
KNXV might have not had a translator up there yet, and KUTP was still too new.

No daytime Feud to be found in Denver, however..

What did Channel 9 normally air at 7:30 PM? I'm guessing "Joker's Wild" which is seen
after "M*A*S*H" in late night?

Actually, KUSA pre-empted "Feud." If you noticed by their schedule KUSA was running
"M*A*S*H" and "Happy Days (Again)" twice, the latter airing in place of "Family Feud."

CBS had shown all its Peanuts movies cut to fit the 60-minute time slot, with
commercials, meaning that practically half the film was scissored when it aired on CBS.
The only way you could watch the films complete on TV (apart from home video) was
either on a pay channel, or in syndication to local stations.

10:30 After Benny, Thames Presents (featuring Bernard Cribbins)

Did 'The Benny Hill Show' air anywhere in Denver(on weekends, perhaps?) I thought
'After Benny, Thames Presents' was intended to be shown, as the name implies,
immediately following Benny. Did any markets have Benny's show on one channel, and
this show on another?

KGCT (now KMYT) ran a subscription TV service, "IT TV" (presumably the same service
that was on WIHT in Ann Arbor) at that time. The service ran until 1984, with KGCT
closing down the following year, when they could not afford to rebuild their transmitter
after an ice storm. They returned to air under different owners in 1991, then as KTFO.

KAUT ran VUE at this time, up until 1983. The station had better fortunes than KGCT,
save for a seven year period in the 1990s when it was a secondary PBS station under
OETA.

Re: Retro: Oklahoma Thursday, September 17, 1981
According to an earlier post showing Oklahoma listings for September 16, 1980, only the
syndicated Family Feud was carried in OKC on KWTV 9 at 6:30 p.m. The ABC daytime
Feud was preempted by KOCO 5 once ABC moved it to 11 a.m. in June 1980. The
September 1981 listings now show no station in OKC carrying either ABC daytime or
syndicated nighttime Feud. Was the original Feud ever seen again in OKC from this
point forward? (Aside from the occasional ABC primetime specials, unless KOCO
preempted them as well)

Re: Retro: Oklahoma Thursday, September 17, 1981

TV Guide did include the stations after their switch to STV...But as the name of the
Subscription TV service the channel has. Like in New York City Channel 68 WWHT used
the service WHT. During WHT hours listings would show STV shows and movies on
WHT not channel 68. I assume the same thing with 41 Tulsa and 43 Oklahoma City.
Channel 41 running sitcoms from Viacom??? and other cash programming?? Unusual
for them. I recall Channel 41 by 1983 running an all barter lineup. And I believe they
went dark late in the 80's. They went back on in 1991 with once again an all barter
lineup. They paid no money for any shows they aired from when they came back on in
1991 till they were part of an LMA with channel 32 in 1994. Channel 41 had been a very
low budget operation.

Re: Retro: Hartford/Springfield Sat, Apr 13, 1968
Does anyone know what "Boomtown" with Rex Trailer was about? It ran on WBZ-TV 4
weekend mornings for many years and went three hours or more. I assume it was a kids
show, perhaps with cartoons. But three hours is a long time. And what did Mr. Trailer do?

I also notice that ABC had no 10:30pm program on this Saturday. WNHC 8 put in what I
assume was a syndicated showing of Truth or Consequences (a game show at 10:30
Saturday?) and both WCVB 7 and WHYN-TV 40 just went into their late movie. Was this
a regular practice with ABC?

And I see that CT Public Broadcasting is off the air on Saturdays in 1968. That's odd.
Even if they didn't have daytime educational shows to run, most NET stations at least
ran a prime time schedule on weekends.

Please do an on-line search under "Rex Trailer" and you will see the answer to your
question and much more information. Rex Trailer just passed away in January.

Re: Retro: Hartford/Springfield Sat, Apr 13, 1968
It was quite common into the 60s for educational stations to have a prime-time only
schedule, or even no programming, on the weekends. Weekend programming was seen
as too expensive for the relatively few viewers they had. Even WNDT New York didn't
broadcast on weekends during this period because they simply didn't have the funds.

To add about educational stations.....in the 1960's, some were programed to be viewed
by students in school; therefore, there was morning and early-afternoon programming.
Then, other than showing a test pattern and tone, nothing may be shown until early
evening for household viewing.

Retro: Carolina-Tennesse TV Guide Thurs. Feb. 2, 1961
Carolina-Tennessee TV Guide - Thurs. Feb. 2, 1961

I use (5) to designate a black TV Guide channel listing. 3 is a white listing. You'll notice
that Knoxville had a full-time ABC affiliate and Greenville-Spartanburg sort of had two.
But in 1961 Charlotte and Kingsport-Johnson City-Bristol had only two VHF stations, no
stations on UHF and no fulltime ABC affiliates. And there were no Educational stations in
this region yet.

You'll notice that EVERY station in this TV Guide runs something different at 10:30
except the two UHF ABC stations. I wonder why? Since there are no O&O stations in
this TV Guide, I don't know what network shows these stations were skipping. I think
Mike Hammer and Jim Backus were syndicated offerings. In a few other cases, stations
with two network affiliates may have used 10:30 Thursday to run a show they failed to air
earlier in the week.

WTVK-26 was the only ABC station in the region that carried the network's evening
newscast.

This was about two months after John Charles Daly left ABC; he anchored the network's
evening newscast and for much of that time, actually ran the ABC News division.
Imagine Scott Pelley, Diane Sawyer, or Brian Williams today not only anchoring their
network's newscast but also serving as head of their network's news department!

Back then, ABC News was very much third-ranked; they had far fewer people and less
on-air time than the news divisions of CBS and NBC. And Daly's departure probably hurt
(as an anchor, he was as good as any in the business); I wouldn't be surprised is a few
ABC stations dropped the newscast after Daly left.

Of course, a station affiliated with both ABC and another network back then, given a
choice of either Bill Shadel's "ABC News Evening Report" and either NBC's

"Huntley/Brinkley Report" or the "CBS Evening News with Douglas Edwards" would
choose the CBS or NBC newscast over ABC's.

Merv produced "Let's Play Post Office," but Don Morrow was the host.
Merv may have been filling in for him that week.

It's possible that Peter Jennings may have been on vacation or an out-of-town
assignment that week, so Bob Young filled-in.

Merv produced "Let's Play Post Office," but Don Morrow was the host.
Merv may have been filling in for him that week.

It's possible that Peter Jennings may have been on vacation or an out-of-town
assignment that week, so Bob Young filled-in.

According to that day's New York Times:

(1) NBC's wrestling show originated from St. Nicholas Arena in New York City. According
to Brooks and Marsh, NBC did a lot of boxing and wrestling telecasts from that venue in
the late 1940's, as well as the feature boxing match every Friday night (usually) at
Madison Square Garden. The latter, which began to originate from other cities as time
went on and other cities got connected to network lines, would continue on NBC through
1960 and on ABC from 1960 through 1964 (although from 1960 through 1963, the fights
were on Saturdays).

(2) DuMont and flagship WABC-5's boxing show originated from Westchester County

Center and began at 9:30 P.M. EST, meaning WNAC-7 missed the first 45 minutes of the
show.

Re: Hawaii, March 18, 1972
Interesting that Hawaii still didn't have an English language independent station as late
as 1972. Only Asian languages KIKU 13.

The NET station didn't bother to sign on over the weekend. I know they didn't have
classroom programs to run during the day. But I thought most NET stations by 1972 ran
a prime time schedule on weekends.

And no one ran a late evening newscast. The ABC and CBS stations ran only a 6pm
newscast. And Roger Mudd's CBS News ran at 1:30am. The NBC station didn't have
any news at all.

Hawaii was a relatively small TV market in the 1970s - maybe in the Top 100 but not very
high. It probably couldn't support an English-language independent.

The NET station didn't bother to sign on over the weekend. I know they didn't have
classroom programs to run during the day. But I thought most NET stations by 1972 ran
a prime time schedule on weekends.
Probably too expensive to fly the tapes over from LA. Satellites were used only for live
events (mostly sports).

Even stateside, some PBS stations (PBS replaced NET in 1970) were still off the air on
weekends, or at least one day a week. From past schedules, at this time, WTCI
Chattanooga, WETV (WPBA) Atlanta, WTVI Charlotte and the UNC-TV network were
still off on weekends. Same with WUSF in Tampa, though they are off when college is
not in session, meaning weekends, holidays, the whole summer and probably a couple
weeks in December and a week in spring; it'll be around 1974-1975 when WUSF would
begin year-round seven-day service.

That WAS the CBS version, but TV Guide made it sound like his variety series. The
description reads like this:

"A poke at political image-making: Veteran heavy James Gregory plays a cowboy actor
itching for a Senate seat; Don is the eager ad man pitched to sell the candidate"

Would KHON-2 have used a satellite to feed the network broadcast of the game live to
Hawaii, or would tapes have been flown back, meaning a same-day, but late-night,
broadcast of the game??

KHON would've use satellite feed to either air it live or tape the game off the live feed
and then air it hours later the same day, depending on their schedule, since the West
Regional Quarterfinals was played in Provo, Utah on March 11, 1972, and given
Hawaiians' loyalty to UH and their sporting programs, they would like to see it in action
now rather than later.

The game aired in Pocatello, Idaho as I recall and I have part of the game on 2 inch
quad. I co-produced the 2007 documentary on the UH Basketball team called the
"Fabulous Five"; they were the most successful UH hoops team we have ever had.

the month are taped back-to-back the same evening.

yes
1st Monday of the month except March (no taping...NCAA b-ball on CBS) and
September (Labor Day.,..they do it the week before so in August there are 2
tapings...looks like this year they're doing it on Sept 9th)
7:30 taping starts

use to be different band each week when they were in the studio.

I really wanted to see this months if they mention Dick's Passing (he died the day of the
taping...he had been on the show since 1974) or if they didnt.

Re: Retro: Salt Lake City - 1/31/1996

Not the only example of Lauren Hutton in the wee hours. My local KIRO 7 used to put
"Lauren Hutton And..." at 1:05 in the morning! Not the best time for viewers!

I also see KSTU was showing Gomer Pyle USMC in very late overnight hours. I don't
know who was the LAST Big 4 to have Gomer Pyle, but four years to the new millennium
was a good syndication run for that show! M*A*S*H aired here until around 2005 on my
now-CW station (KSTW), and Taxi aired in weekend hours as late as 2005-2006 also on
KSTW.

(especially in the mid-90s) but KSL being NBC and WRGB having been CBS for more
than three decades are the maybe the only two that I haven't gotten used to and
probably never will.

What about the PBSs? And KSTU? Hard to believe a major paper like the Deseret News
listed only three stations.

WSVN 7 in Miami has been Fox since 1/1/1989, but somehow I can't shake off that NBC
affiliation! Other channels have switched here, and it's also difficult to fathom; but ch 7

sticks out like a sore thumb more'n the others!

I know the feeling! It's going on nearly 20 (!!!) years that in Philly, KYW-3 is CBS and
WCAU-10 is NBC..Still seems odd!

Here's an odd one....Once again going on 20 years, it seems odd in Baltimore for
WMAR-2 to be ABC (after being NBC for 14 years), and WJZ-13 to be CBS (after being
ABC since its inception), but WBAL-11 being NBC is just right. Those 14 years as CBS
for it never seemed to fit..

Re: Retro: Salt Lake City 4-17-87
Sometimes it's hard to fathom a Channel 4 being a Fox affiliate (not in Salt Lake City, per
se) - and yet, here we are...

By the way, I have a feeling 4 and 5 pre-empted their networks' Friday night lineups.

And 4 didn't clear "Nightline"?

Re: Retro: Phoenix/Flagstaff Wed, Apr 18, 1979

As a former Flagstaff and Phoenix resident I've often wondered what happened to the

KOAI/KNAZ news archives when the news department was shut down a few years ago.
Was it sent to KPNX, the NBC affiliate in Phoenix, donated to the NAU journalism
department, destroyed or what? Sometime later in 1979, not exactly sure when KTAR
became KPNX due to the acquisition of Gannett.

KTSP [Now KSAZ] Channel 10 (CBS, Now Fox) Phoenix
6:30 The Morning Program (Rolland Smith/Hartley)
8:00 Value Television
9:00 The $25,000 Pyramid

A CBS affiliate in a major market airing home shopping programming in a prime daytime
hour? Are you kidding me?

Value TV was a syndicated show that was shopping but only one hour - called VTV and
produced by Fox actually for their O & O stations and syndicated to other stations in
other markets - SHORT LIVED - gone by the summer.

ALSO would like to see listings for the independent stations KPHO, KNXV, KUTP.
Ironically only one of those are still independent today while two of the network stations

here are independents today. I count Fox stations as independents still being Fox only
programs a couple hours a day except for sports sometimes. Thanks

KTVK Channel 3 (ABC, Now Ind.) Phoenix
9:30 The Judge

Dynasty at 10 a.m. for a half-hour? Are you kidding me?
The syndicator offered "Dynasty" as a half-hour or hour-long program. When WTOG
carried the show, it was the full hour.

Splitting hour shows into half-hours in syndication is not uncommon -- "The Rookies"
and "BJ / Lobo" also got that treatment. Just like "Dynasty", stations were offered to
carry either the half-hour or hour-long versions.

Re: Retro: Phoenix, AZ April 13th, 1987
Wow. How do you edit a 60 min. show down to 30 minutes? And I wonder how well
some mid-level technician took artistic pains to creatively do it? It might be fun to watch
a 60 minute Dynasty or The Rookies and see what happens when you watch the 30 min.
version.

At least Dynasty is episodic. Perhaps they were able to get two 30 min. episodes out of
a single 60 min. show. But I doubt you could do that with The Rookies, or heaven forbit,

BJ/Lobo.

MCA offered "Knight Rider" in either 30- or 60-minute syndicated versions around the
same time too. That show, like "Dynasty," did not last in traditional syndication for long.

KTSP also picked up the short lived "Home Shopping Game" later that year too.

YOU DON'T!!! What actually happens is they will divide a one hour show into two days So you will have part one and part 2 of an episode and then part one and part 2 of the
next episode.

yes BJ/Lobo, Knight Rider, Fantasy Island were given these options - among others.

notice that Meredith is not huge on movies - On other Meredith indies back then like
WPGH Pittsburgh and 35 WOFL Orlando - drama shows and sitcoms ran in prime time.
Meredith was huge on sitcoms and had top rate product back then. They did take Fox in
Pittsburgh and Orlando as well as their Las Vegas station but not here for some reason.

up with Fox

KUTP was huge with movies - They filled a void that KPHO was leaving. KPHO was
running movies only on weekends - KNXV ran an average amount of them - KUTP ran
huge amounts - seems they had many MGM movies and seemed to overlap with TBS
quite alot. They would slowly move away from movies in the 90's.

Good grief, weren't there any police chases to put on the air that week?

Well, KTLA-5 already had their first "Telecopter", so they could have, but probably didn't.

The "Telecopter Reports" in the morning were likely ordinary traffic reports, which even
back then were a necessity in a city like Los Angeles.

Also, I suspect that the 6-6:15 P.M. hour (PT) on several stations was divided between
15 minute local and 15 minute network newscasts.

KRCA-4 undoubtedly aired "Huntley/Brinkley" at 6:15, but did KNXT-2 air "The CBS
Evening News" (with Douglas Edwards) at 6:30 or 6:45?? And since no programming for
KABC-7 was listed for 5:30 to 6 P.M., can I assume that the station aired "The ABC
News Evening Report" (I think Bill Shadel was a fill-in anchor in early 1961 following
John Charles Daly's departure at the end of 1960) and a local 15-minuite newscast in
the 5:30-6 P.M. half-hour??

Well, it was an RKO-General station. They did the same thing on WOR New York, and
less frequently on WNAC Boston (since they were a network affiliate).

One other Boston connection. John Willis came East and hosted "Good Morning!"
(which became "Good Day" when it was syndicated) in 1973 on WCVB and was there
for 15 years or so. He passed away about 10 years ago. His son is the morning DJ on
WKLB Country 102.5 Boston these days.

Re: Retro: Hollywood/San Diego/Santa Barbara, Thursday, February 8, 1961
I'm surprised by the listing for KRCA on Selma Avenue. I thought they were in the
Burbank building at 3000 W. Alameda by the late 50s. They had been in the Sunset and
Vine NBC studios prior to that. Anybody have the story?

I did a Google Street view of 6258 Selma. It's a parking lot now, but the footprint is large
enough for studio space to have been there.

Re: Retro: Hollywood/San Diego/Santa Barbara, Wednesday, February 8, 1961
...apologies for the subject line goof -- February 8, 1961, was a Wednesday, not a
Thursday. The subject line is hereby corrected here...

Quote Originally Posted by Joseph_Gallant

...look again, JG. KABC-TV/7 ran the ABC rerun of The Lone Ranger...

I'm surprised by the listing for KRCA on Selma Avenue. I thought they were in the
Burbank building at 3000 W. Alameda by the late 50s. They had been in the Sunset and
Vine NBC studios prior to that. Anybody have the story?

I did a Google Street view of 6258 Selma. It's a parking lot now, but the footprint is large
enough for studio space to have been there.
...6258 Selma Avenue was, I believe, an annex to the Sunset and Vine NBC Radio City
studios. KRCA didn't move to the Burbank Color City facility (and the KNBC call sign)
until November 1962; there's now a Chase Bank on the old Radio City site...''

Also on the old Sunset and Vine grounds was RCA Victor's first "Music Center of the
World" West Coast recording complex; the address associated with that studio was 1510
North Vine Street, where they were based from March 2, 1959 until April 1, 1964 - on
April 21, RCA moved their West Coast "Music Center" hub to 6363 Sunset Blvd. where
they stayed up to its closure in early '77.

Finally, the answer to something that has been guesswork for me
for a time. We know that in the '70s there was no noon break for
NBC's West Coast affiliates (for example, "Three On A Match" was
on at 1:30 ET/12:30 CT/12 N PT). And I see here that there was
no noon break in '61 either (Jan Murray was on at 2 ET/1 CT/12 PT).

OTOH, ABC followed the Eastern version of daytime; CBS, the Central.
But off-topic: I still don't understand why some of ABC's affiliates in
the Central time zone ran daytime shows simultaneously with the East
("American Bandstand" at 3 in Huntsville, AL, for example) while others
delayed the schedule an hour ("AB" at 4 in Houston).

Channel 7, 10:00 am: The Ray Milland Show;

This fine actor had a short-lived sitcom that ran on CBS, and was rerun in various places
in syndication.

The show was created by Joe Connelly and Bob Mosher, who would later create Leave
It To Beaver.

Here is video of the show's opening credits. Full episodes are available at YouTube:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_BDciA-tGmQ

I noticed "Seven Keys" on Channel 5. It had been a local
program for about a year but was about to move to ABC
(April 3). After ABC dropped it in 1964 it returned to local
LA TV for a few months, finally ending early in 1965. AFAIK,
Jack Narz was its only host.

Re: Retro: Michigan Sat, Apr 16, 1977
Especially nice to see CBS' great Saturday night line-up listed here. At the height of the
disco era, when many Baby Boomers were single and dating, people stayed home to
watch TV on Saturday night.

Now, CBS and the other networks don't even try to program Saturday night, have given
up on the idea of getting people to stay home and just chuck in some re-runs.

This, more than anything, shows the sad state of network television.

Something to note here: While WWJ-TV was the flagship of the Tigers' TV network back
then, the team was owned by broadcaster John Fetzer -- two of his stations, WKZO-TV
and WWTV/WWUP are part of the network. They certainly had all of Michigan covered
back then, and if memory serves me right, the games were also carried in Toledo, Ohio
(though I forget which station carried them).

Did the old WWJ-4 usually clear "Saturday Night Live" in the Spring of 1977 but didn't
this particular week since the late news after the baseball game probably didn't end intime for the station to pick-up "SNL" from the start??

It wasn't until shortly after the original "Not Ready For Prime-Time Players" left the show
in 1980 that WNEM picked up SNL -- unless you had cable or lucky enough to get a
station in an adjacent market, the only exposure to SNL at the time was the prime-time
best-of specials.

WUCM was licensed to University Center, an unincorporated part of Bay County located
centrally between Bay City, Saginaw and Midland; the area is where WUCM's owner,
Delta College, is located. WUCM is now WDCQ, operating in the digital age on a license
of a former WUCM satellite licensed to Bad Axe -- the story is so convoluted, I'll let this
article speak for itself:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WDCQ-TV

As for Flint, at the time it got a marginal signal from WUCM, as well as WKAR East
Lansing and WTVS Detroit -- it would not be until 1980 when Flint's own PBS outlet,
WFUM (now WCMU satellite WCMZ) goes on the air, and until 2009 when WDCQ
moved its transmitter from Bad Axe to closer to Bay City, providing decent digital
coverage to Flint and the Tri-Cities.

How long did channel 55 in Alpena last? I thought the Alpena area didn't get local ABC
coverage until WBKB started their ABC subchannel earlier this year.

Lou Gordon, who would die the following month, was normally 90-minutes, but had 15
extra minutes this night only, due to the unseen NBC movie running long.

I believe WTOL channel 11 carried the Tigers.

This wasn't a Beatles infomercial, was it?

Maybe "Here Comes The Sun" was a religious program of Sunrise prayers, perhaps
produced in cooperation with the churches of the Detroit area.

...no. WWJ-TV/4 did not air NBC's Saturday Night/Saturday Night Live at all for its first
seasons, dumping the show off to WKBD/50 starting with the 12 June 1976 broadcast
http://vintagetoledotv.squarespace.c...nt-ads/2250289..

The listings have it as a discussion, but doesn't give any more info than that... ???

"Here Comes the Sun'...since it was scheduled (roughly) at sunrise, maybe...?

Re: Retro: Michigan Sat, Apr 16, 1977
When did "Hee Haw" begin airing on WJBK? I know I recall seeing
a Michigan State edition around 1978 or '79 and it stuck out like
a sore thumb that on Saturdays at 7 "Hee Haw" was on Ch. 2 and
Lawrence Welk on Ch. 3 because we had a similar situation here in
North Carolina: "Hee Haw" on WFMY/2 and Lawrence Welk on WBTV/3,
also Saturdays at 7.

Let me rephrase that. When did WJBK begin airing the
syndicated version of "Hee Haw"? I'm quite sure
they carried the CBS version.

Retro: Boston - WHDH Channel 5's last week on the air (March 11-17, 1972)
On Saturday, March 18, 1972 WHDH lost its last appeal to stay on the air. After the
11:00 PM News, station manager Harold Clancy went on to make the announcement,
and to thank all the viewers and employees. WHDH channel 5 left the air that night after
the late movie, appropriately entitled “Fixed Bayonets”. The next morning WCVB took to
the airwaves (sign-on from YouTube - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_zsgWkNHr0).
Many of both the on-air and technical employees went to the new station, helping to
make WCVB the success that it became. Here are the listings for the last week of
WHDH – March 11-17, 1972. (I don’t have a copy of the last day as of now, but when I
do I will post it.) By this time the court had ordered WHDH off the air by 1 AM so WCVB
could test their equipment. The copy of the TV Guide I’m using is from Western New
England, but the three Boston network affiliates were listed. There is no mention in the
Guide of the possibility of the change (which could have happened at any time), and if
the change went into effect that the new WCVB would be the ABC affiliate and that CBS
programming would go to WNAC channel 7. I do remember seeing as a child (I was just
shy of 6 when it happened) an ad in TV Guide proclaiming that the new WCVB was on
the way. I can’t remember the exact date of the ad. Some shows survived to the new
channel 5, most notably Candlepin Bowling, and (for a while) Romper Room. Anyway…
here is the last week of Boston’s WHDH, channel 5, CBS affiliate.

Both shows were delayed from Saturday, due to baseball. Also, Jon Pertwee was
notable as being "The Third Doctor", assuming the role of Doctor Who shortly after that
film was made.

On the topic of sign-offs, I believe WXPO was showing an episode of that series in 1970
when their power was cut off for non-payment, taking that station off the air for good.

I believe this was Friday's "CBS Late Movie", which was delayed to here so that WHDH
could show a local film.

And alas, the only time this series was shown on WHDH.

Out of curiosity, when you do get the listings, if it's from a TVG, could you list the
unrealised WHDH schedule for 3/19 to 3/24? As the closure and switchover occurred
after the next week's TV Guides went on sale, I'm very sure the schedule in that issue
was all WHDH's.

It's from TV Guide. I don't have the next issue (I keep looking for an Eastern or Western
New England edition) but if I ever come across it I will post it.

I had thought that it was on Friday March 17th, 1972 that the old WHDH-5 lost it's last
appeal to stay on the air.

Boston's Original (WHDH) Channel 5's Last Day On The Air, March 18th, 1972
According to the March 18th, 1972 Boston Globe, here's what the old WHDH-5
broadcast on it's final day:

The Globe did not indicate what shows were in color; I suspect that the movie "Fixed
Bayonets" at 11:30 P.M. may have been the only black-and-white program on that's day
schedule.

6:30 A.M. "Sunrise Semester"
7:00 A.M. "Young World"
8:00 A.M. "The Bugs Bunny Show"
8:30 A.M. "Scooby Doo, Where Are You?"
9:00 A.M. "Harlem Globetrotters (animated)"
9:30 A.M. "Help! It's The Hair Bear Bunch"
10:00 A.M. "Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm"
10:30 A.M. "Archie's TV Funnies"
11:00 A.M. "Sabrina, The Teenage Witch" (the animated show from the early 1970's)
(Note: "In The News" featurettes from CBS aired at 8:56, 9:26, 9:56, 10:26, 10:56 and
11:26 A.M.)
11:30 A.M. Local News
12 Noon&#160; &#160;&#160;"Candlepin Bowling Stars"
1:00 P.M. "Winning Pins" (candlepin bowling show featuring high-school aged bowlers;
the host, Bill O'Connell, just passed away)
1:30 P.M. Pre-Season Baseball: Boston Red Sox vs. Detroit Tigers at Lakeland, Florida
(this would be the final Red Sox game to air on Channel 5; WBZ-4 picked-up the Sox
beginning with the pre-season game the next weekend)

4:25 P.M. Red Sox Wrap-Up
4:30 P.M. "CBS Golf Classic" (videotaped golf match between the team of Dale Douglas
and a young Hale Irwin against the team of Miller Barber and Gene Littler; I believe this
long-running golf show was taped at the Firestone course in Akron, Ohio)
5:30 P.M. Local News
6:00 P.M. "The Week Ends Here" (local newsmagazine series; I think a young Chet
Curtis was host and also contributed stories)
7:00 P.M. Movie: "Carousel" (1956), with Gordon MacRae and a young Shirley Jones.
(during the 1971-72 season, the old WHDH-5 aired "All In The Family"---seen on most
other CBS stations at 8 P.M. ET/PT---on Tuesday nights at 7:30; and "Mary Tyler
Moore"---seen everywhere else at 8:30 that season---on Tuesdays at 8 P.M.)
9:00 P.M. "New Dick Van Dyke Show" (his short-lived 1970's sitcom comeback)
9:30 P.M. "Arnie" (one-season sitcom with Herschel Bernardi)
10:00 P.M. "Mission: Impossible"
11:00 P.M. Local News
11:30 P.M. Movie: "Bayonets" (1951), starring Richard Basehart. At the end of them
movie, the "old" Channel 5 went off the air forever.

They tried to get an emergency hearing and stay on the 18th but failed. It's unusual but
not unheard of that the appeals court will take an emergency case on a weekend.

Another thing I was curious about was WNAC channel 7, which no doubt had to dump
their ABC programs in short order in exchange for CBS's -- no doubt that led to some
considerable confusion in the early days of the switch.

Re: Retro: Boston - WHDH Channel 5's last week on the air (March 11-17, 1972)
Here's WNAC's weekday daytime (6a-7p) schedule at the time:

6:20a Farm and Market Report
6:25a Understanding Our World
6:55a News
7:00a Major Mudd
9:00a Paul Benzaquin
10:00a Movie
11:30a That Girl
12:00p Virginia Graham
12:30p Password
1:00p News, Sports, Weather
1:30p Let’s Make a Deal
2:00p The Newlywed Game
2:30p The Dating Game
3:00p General Hospital
3:30p One Life to Live
4:00p Mayberry R.F.D.
4:30p Merv Griffin (90 minutes)
6:00p News, Sports, Weather

6:30p ABC News
7:00p Dick Van Dyke

I know that Major Mudd (local kids show) got moved to the afternoon because I used to
watch him. Paul Benzaquin (who recently passed away) stayed at 9am, and Merv kept
the 4:30 pre-news slot. AFAICR they didn't clear "The Edge of Night" and kept with
syndicated reruns.

Re: Retro: Boston - WHDH Channel 5's last week on the air (March 11-17, 1972)

I wonder if the "old" WHDH, at the point they were finally kicked off the air in March
1972, still had the RCA TK-42 and TK-43 color cameras they'd had since the 1966-67
period. It is definitely known that the then-new WCVB, when it took over the Channel 5
signal, had to start, tech-wise, entirely from scratch - and in its first few years, its studio
camera was the Norelco PC-100 (the U.S. designation for Philips' LDK-5). As for film
chains, which ones did WCVB start with - and I'm curious if WHDH retained their RCA
TK-26's from the late '50's, or if they'd upgraded to TK-27's.

Interesting to note that ABC's new (at the time) sudzer "All My Children" was not being
cleared in Boston until the "new" Channel 5 WCVB took to the air.

Re: Retro: Boston - WHDH Channel 5's last week on the air (March 11-17, 1972)

AMC wasn't even cleared by WSBK, which was usually the dumping ground for ABC and
NBC daytime shows not cleared by the main affiliates. As for WHDH equipment, I know

some was donated to Dean Junior College in Franklin for their media department. I'm not
sure of exactly what, and what happened to the rest.

Actually, it should be April 20, 1993. I have to apologize for a
couple of errors yesterday; I've just started a new job as a reader
for the Arkansas state writing test for third graders and by the end
of the week you're seeing double and thinking half. I intend to be
back in the groove this week.

Re: Retro: Atlanta Tuesday, June 20, 1993
So you live in Arkansas? I thought bpatrick was more of a GA/Carolinas guy.

Anyway, Jane Whitney's show only lasted one season. I have half an episode from late
1992 taped off KTZZ 22 Seattle on a VHS, with commercials. Also, wasn't "Studs" mainly
on Fox stations? I thought it was syndicated, but most listings I see have the show on
Fox stations.

-vcrainbebo

Actually, I do live in North Carolina and have spent most of my life in the Carolinas and
Georgia. The company I'm with scores statewide reading, writing, math, etc., tests from
all over the country; right now, our group is working on Arkansas and another is working
on Connecticut. I did live in Dallas for three years in the late '70s, and my dad, whose job
took him over most of the Southwest, would bring back Arkansas or Missouri editions of
TV Guide when he had to go up there (he used to pick up the Missouri one in
Bentonville). The only areas in that part of the country that still interest me are Dallas/Ft.
Worth, Houston, San Antonio, and Oklahoma City (the latter because at the time KOCO
was WXIA's sister station and both were using the "Alive" moniker: 5 Alive in Oklahoma
City and 11 Alive in Atlanta).

Retro: This Week in TV Guide, April 21, 1973 - MN State Edition
This week, Cliff Robertson is The Man Without a Country, Rex Harrison is Don Quixote,
and Perry Mason is John XXIII. Plus In Concert vs. The Midnight Special, Star Trek fans
that won't go away, and Nixon hoping to restore respect to the Presidency while the
networks wonder if anyone's going to be interested in the Watergate hearings.

http://www.itsabouttv.com/2013/04/th...l-21-1973.html

As always your comments, positive as well as negative, are welcome.

And now the TV listings. Among the interesting things we see - commercial stations
running Sesame Street, and a plethora of syndicated reruns destined to some day wind
up on classic TV.

New syndicated episodes of "Let's Make A Deal" were produced
from 1984-86; these may be the ones airing on Channel 9.

They couldn't be the 1984-1986 syndicated ones, though - that version didn't premiere
until the fall. It could be the previous syndicated one - the one taped in Canada?

It's possible the listing is wrong. This is from the Spencer, Iowa "Daily Reporter," a small
daily paper. The paper probably put the listings together themselves, and I doubt if
anyone with KCAU was checking it for accuracy.

Unless this is a repeat of the night before, it amazes me that even 41 years ago KFVS
had a Saturday morning newscast. There weren't many large markets (if any) that had
weekend newscasts much less weekend mornings. And even if a repeat, that feat alone
is worth noting considering the expensive of video tape during the time period.

According to Wikipedia (take with grain of salt), WNIN signed on in March 1970:

If you read the rest of the entry...

WNIN signed on for the first time on March 5, 1970 owned by the Evansville
Vanderburgh School Corporation. After a few months as a member of National
Educational Television, it joined PBS in October.

Despite having the advantage of being on one of two VHF frequencies in the Tri-State,
EVSC soon found itself in over its head running a full-service public television station.
Within a year, WNIN was $59,000 in the red. Unable to raise enough money to close the
gap, it took WNIN off the air in 1972.

Seals & Crofts, Chuck Berry, Billy Preston, Johnny Rivers, Junior Walker, Marvin

...rather infamously, the performance of "Roll Over Beethoven" came to an abrupt and
premature end when Chuck Berry took a wild swing around and accidentially struck Doc
Severinsen in the eye with the head of his guitar...

At the time, WENH-11 (and the other New Hampshire Public Television stations) had a
nightly newscast at 7:30 on weeknights titled, as noted above, "New Hampshire News".

Was WETK-33/Vermont ETV's "Vermont Report" at 7:30 P.M. a weekly public affairs
program or a nightly newscast??

Given that WENH/NHPTV had a nightly newscast from 1972-81, it's possible
WETK/VETV may have, too.

After doing more research, the answer was "Yes": It aired starting in the Fall of m1976 as
a nightly news/public affairs series.

Retro: Philadelphia Fri, May 4, 1973
Wow! Interesting stuff. Thanks

On Mike Douglas: Reed and Malloy with Moses ("There is no freedom without the law.").
I wonder if they talked about guns.

Dr. Joyce Brothers on Captain? Giving advice to kids? I suppose it's better than Dr.
Laura on Captain.

The CBS Morning News with Hughes Rudd during this period was terrific. A real, serious
news broadcast. Like Cronkite's Evening News but more opportunity for depth and
quirky features. Not like the morning show crap today.

For those not familiar with PTAR it's "prime time access rule." The FCC forced the
networks to cut prime time programming by half an hour (from three and a half to three
hours) and the networks gave 7:30 back to stations. The idea was stations would local
programming but instead it opened up a market for first-run syndication. PTAR is still
with us in the form of Jeopardy/Wheel of Fortune and the various tabloid news shows.
The one interesting attempt was Group W's Evening/PM Magazine, which had stations
exchanging local features for a show produced with local hosts in each market.
Apparently, Magazine hadn't started yet in Philly at this point.

Sandy Duncan and McLean Stevenson on The Tonight Show! How soon we forget.
Stevenson was a regular guest host and when he quit MASH he was touted as Johnny's
heir apparent. Nobody figured Johnny would stay another 20 years. At this point, he'd
already had the job more than twice as long as either Steve Allen or Jack Parr.

Re: Retro: Philadelphia Fri, May 4, 1973
Marine Boy on WTAF was not accurate. That was only on Channel 17. I believe 29 had
The Three Stooges for an hour with some Bugs Bunny cartoons mixed in. Other than
that - sounds close to my memories. Thanks

The one interesting [PTAR] attempt was Group W's Evening/PM Magazine, which had
stations exchanging local features for a show produced with local hosts in each market.

It didn't start on the Group W stations until 1977, which would go national to other
stations the following year.

That should have been "Mike Douglas" at 4 pm on KYW-3, not "Merv Griffin." Merv was
on WPVI-6.

Oops :-[ Didn't notice that when I proofread it. IIRC, KYW was where the show was done
out of?

At the time of that listing(July 1978), Mike's show was still out of KYW; it would move to
Hollywood that September, for better selection of guests.

I was in Atlantic City not long before these listings ( the day Bob Crane was murdered )
and I could have sworn that WKBS started their broadcast day earlier than 10am though.
I DO rememebr watching Huck & Yogi though at 3:30.

Kinda surprised WRC's listings are featured here but NOT WJLA and WTOP/WDVM's. I
didn't think WRC's signal would have made it that far north. The lack of Hagerstown,
MD's WHAG-TV in these listings are a bit of a surprise too.

Re: Retro: Susquehanna Valley Thurs, July 13, 1978
7/13/1978 - my eventual stepdad's 52nd birthday. By his 53rd, he'd started courting my
mother (and met me). They've been married since 1980.

Back close to the topic... WGAL is the only media outlet that I've seen, heard, or read
that referred to the Lanc/Hbg/York market as "the Susquehanna Valley" or sometimes,
"Sus-Q Valley".

Did that toponym originate at WGAL, one of the other stations in the market, or one of
the papers in the market?

Also...

Was WGAL owned by Pulitzer in mid-1978? When did Pulitzer buy it? And when was it
sold to Hearst Argyle? Does H-A still own it? wgal.com's front page doesn't say and I
won't take my chances with Wiki.

wgal.com does have a link for Hearst at the bottom of its front page -- it's right near the
bottom, above the logo for CNN.

I can remember watching WLYH's "Action News 15" in early 1983 when the anchor was
the infamous Larry Mendte and I can remember him saying the words "the Susquehanna
Valley".

Re: Retro: Philadelphia Sat, Apr 28, 1973
Would love a weekday of 1973 in Philadelphia for spring as well as Summer (I vaguely
recall summer schedule on 48 - first schedule I recall in fact) - maybe a Sunday as well From north NJ and we had Philadelphia stations on cable systems but local paper
carried listings sproadically till 1975 when they included all of the major Philadelphia
stations till the mid 80's.

Thanks

Re: Retro: Philadelphia Sat, Apr 28, 1973
Thanks. Enjoy seeing these. Would be nice to see more weekday schedules. Seems
that weekend and holiday "retros" pop up a lot.

I'm surprised at how many country music shows appeared here. I wouldn't have thought
Philly was a big market for country music TV.

Sort of sad to see the great John Facenda relegated to weekend public service shows
like Eye On Kensington (at the time a poor, ethnic White factory neighborhood).

Surprised to see Gene London on as late as 1973. Thought he was long-gone by then.

KYW's Saturday Night movie was called "Saturday Night at the Groovies." Replaced two
years after this by SNL. But some interesting and quirky movies before then.

Interesting how great Saturday night was for TV then (especially CBS) and how the
networks just throw it away now. Now the networks say people (especially in the money
demos) won't stay home; back then TV kept people at home.

17, 29 and 48 were indies then, with some really low-budget but often clever local

shows. 48 is pay to pray religion. Indies are gone and so are the kind local shows they
used to have. Now it's all syndicated, all the time. Local TV just doesn't try very hard.

Re: Retro: Philadelphia Sat, Apr 28, 1973
Gene London ended his show on WCAU TV in 1978. He would run like at 8 AM to 9 or
8:30 to 9:30 or 9 AM to 10 AM. The hour of CBS shows missed used to run in the 7 AM
hour. WKBS TV and WTAF TV had some back and forth sign on time situations
beginning in the fall of 74. From September to December of 74 both stations ha
dcartoons 7-9 AM. Then in the Winter of 75, 48 reverted to 10 AM sign on and 29
reverted to 9:30 AM sign on. Then in the fall of 75 both stations began 7 AM sign on
weekdays again - 29 with a 7-9 AM cartoon block and 48 with an hour cartoon block with
PTL Club 8-10 AM. Winter of 76 once again WTAF 29 reverted to 9:30 AM sign ons and
48 though continued 8 AM sign on because of PTL Club. Then in the Fall of 75 Channel
48 began 5 AM sign on with PTL Club 5-7 AM and 29 signed on at 7 AM. Both stations
had cartoons 7-9 AM. Both stations reverted again in January of 77 with 48 back to 8 AM
sign on with PTL Club dropping the weekday morning cartoons once again and 29
WTAF on at 9:30 AM. Then in April of 77, PTL Club went to 29 WTAF and they then
began 9 AM sign ons. 48 WKBS reverted to 10 AM sign ons once again.

Fall of 77, FINALLY 29 WTAF began 7 AM sign ons and cartoons 7-9 AM and STAYED
WITH THEM eventually signing on 6:30 and 6 AM and going 24/7 in the mid 80's.
Channel 48 again followed suit and began 7 AM sign ons again with cartoons 7-9 AM
again. Channel 48 then reverted again to 10 AM sign ons the week of Christmas 1977
and would finally begin 6:30 AM sign ons and stick with them once and for all in the Fall
of 78.

Channel 17 never went after these two stations and consistantly had no morning cartoon

block and signed on at 10 AM all the way until the Winter of 1979. Then finally they
began a 7 AM sign on and had a morning and afternoon kids' block. But cartoons were
not to last long on Channel 17. They trimmed the afternoon cartoons in November of 79
to one hour and dumped them altogether in January of 1980. They kept the morning
cartoons throughout 1980. Then in 1981 they cut those down to one hour. By the end of
1981 Channel 17 left the kids' business altogether taking a WOR-TV/KTLA Los
Angeles/KHJ TV Los Angeles/KCPQ Tacoma approach and focus on drama shows,
movies, and a few sitcoms.

Then in 1983 when WKBS TV went dark, Channel 17 picked up ,ost of Channel 48's
cartoons like post 48/pre 41 Bugs Bunny/Porky Pig, Woody Woodpecker, Casper, Pink
Panther, Inspector Gadget, eventually Flintstones and half a dozen old sitcoms from
Columbia and MCA and Paramount Like Munsters, Beaver, Bewitched, Dennis The
Menace, Brady Bunch, Mork & Mindy but none of the hugest ones by Viacom like I Love
LUcy or Beverly hillbillies or Honeymooners or All In The Family (eventually moved to
Columbia library) (plus 17 did not renew Andy Griffith or My Three sons when those fell
of 17's schedule in 1981). Those Viacom shows would land on Grant's TV 57 2 years
later. Channel 17 did get DIck Van Dyke and Gomer Pyle though. Also weekends they
stayed religious till Noon and Sundays after 8 PM. They diud not run any cartoons on
weekends till the late 80's when the religious groups stopped buying time. Anyhow
Channel 17 was okay being they did fill a hole but not well but it was better than them
buying none of 48's shows leaving Philly with one station running cartoons. At least they
ran sitcoms in the early affternoon rather than keep a movie there. I did not care for their
local version of Dance Fever weekdays at 4. Would have rather seen Flintstones and
Brady Bunch in that hour and another cartoon at 3:30. I liked the music but not when we
have only 2 independents.

Actually I heard the original plan was for Hearst to buy Channel 48 but they were only
willing to pay 30 million and field wanted 50 million. Then Providence Journal wanted to
buy Channel 48 for 40 million and under the deal they would combine assets and move
shows like 3's Company to Channel 17 and much of their movies and the 76ers. But
shows like Dance Fever and Little House would not have moved there. What about the
religion? Well Providence Journal would have sold Channel 17 to Cornerstone and 17
would have become a religious station. But Prov Journal could not get financing to make
it work so instead they just bought some of 48's programming and equipment and 48
went dark. Field did sell 48's trnsmitter (which could trnsmit Channel 47 as well) to
Cornerstone TV and they used it to Put all religious station in Altonna PA on the air with
guess what calls??? WKBS TV - The FCC assigned them those calls when Field turned
them in.

ANyhow 57 did complete the rescue a couple years later - But it was not quite the same.
Also 17 during the 1983 to 85 years was just not quite the thing.
