Not sure if this appeared on WOR-TV Channel 9 or if this was actually taken from a broadcast but it certainly does bring back memories of old New York Mets games on channel 9 seeing a young Bob Murphy and Rheingold beer which was a long time sponsor of the Mets on channel 9.

Happy 4th Of July!

A Happy and Safe 4th of July weekend to everyone! Enjoy!

Honestly, I don’t know much about this show, how it originated or where/when it initially aired but I do remember seeing it as a kid on WPIX-TV Channel 11. Under the title “A Day With Doodles”, this bizarre series of shorts with Doodles Weaver, would pop up from time to time as filler during the cartoon shows like “Felix The Cat”. I remember, even as a kid, how weird and surreal I thought the show was. Below is a sample of one of the shorts in the series. If anyone can shed more information on the show, please feel free to do so.

Wonderful clip from public broadcasting channel 13, WNET-TV. This is from Halloween Night, 1981. They just don’t do TV like this anymore. Enjoy!

 

Not sure what year this was or what the repercussions were but leave it up to the wonderful Roger Grimsby to punctuate this classic, funny moment. Enjoy!

Here is a neat clip featuring the amazing theme music for Action News on WPIX-TV Channel 11. This is from 1980 and really quick at the end you can see an “up next” slide for the Channel 11 Film Festival.

From 10/23/76 comes an ad for an airing of “Dirty Harry” on NBC Saturday Night At The Movies. No mention if this is the initial airing of the film but it does come with appropriate “viewer discretion” warnings.

A nice ad from 10/24/76. A movie and Ironside!

Here are some interesting TV Guide ads featuring the three area local indies advertising some of their programming from 9/14/81. First is WNEW-TV Channel 5 with a full page ad telling viewers to “Put some magic in your mornings”. Next, WOR-TV Channel 9 with an ad for their early afternoon block of game shows. Finally, WPIX-TV Channel 11 is letting fans know where they can find the Yankees that week.

 

Happy Father’s Day!

I hope all the Dad’s out there have a wonderful day!
