Re: Retro: North Carolina Saturday, July 3, 1976

With, apparently, much of the Tar Heel state watching, the Phils pulled it out in the 9th, 3-2. See
the boxscore at http://www.baseball-reference.com/bo...97607030.shtml .

It was my father's 39th birthday. I watched it with him at my aunt's in Chester, PA, a Philadelphia
suburb. Only we watched it (with the Phillies' announcers) on WPHL-17 because of NBC's GOTW
blackout policy, which affected both the home and visiting markets, which NBC fed an alternate
game. Wonder what KYW-3's game was that last day of America's second century? ??? ;D

they probably are...

Re: Retro: North Carolina Saturday, July 3, 1976


"Emergency +4" and "The Oddball Couple" were

indeed cartoon spinoffs of "Emergency!" and "The

Odd Couple," respectively. "The Oddball Couple"

was about a neat-freak cat named Spiffy (voice

by Frank Nelson) and a sloppy dog named Fleabag

(voice by Paul Winchell), and like Felix and Oscar

they were roommates.

"The Harlem Globetrotters Popcorn Machine" was

a live-action kid-oriented variety show, not to be

confused with their animated show of the early '70s.

10 PM (Local)

In radio days, most of the really popular shows came on


before 9 PM; people tended to tune in early, switch off

about 9, do the dishes and prepare for bed. What television

hadn't learned yet was that people did their chores first, then

sat down to watch about 8 PM. Hence the dearth of non-

sports programming in the late evening.

Daytime was also still the province of radio:

Re: NBC Schedule Thursday, May 20, 1982 (with YouTube video)

I don't mean to argue but that is false about Search For Tomorrow coming on after Doctor's in
the schedule. Now on December 31, 1982 the Doctor's went off air. in 3 months later Search was
cancelled by CBS to air what cbs thought would be a succesful soap Capital.NBC bought search
and aired it for 4 years. A game show hit man replaced Doctor;s while Fantasy replaced Texas
because it 2 was cancelled on December 31, 1982.

Andy, try again. The Search CBS=>NBC transition WAS in 1982.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Search_for_Tomorrow

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capitol_%28TV_series%29

To be fair, The Doctors may not have been paired with Search for Tomorrow in your local TV
market (was also the case in DFW), but the Peacock did air them together during the overlap
time.

Re: Retro: Wisconsin, October 4, 1972

Re your statement about "All My Children" at 10 AM:

it is a little early, but "Guiding Light" airs at 10, and

even 9 AM, in some markets. And back in '72 I was

living in Birmingham, and "AMC" came on there at 10

on WBRC (today, on ABC33/40, WCFT and WJSU, it's

seen in pattern at noon).

Wisconsin PBS affiliate north of Milwaukee or Madison, and KFIZ-TV discontinued their

knowledge, never ran the Harron version, as they switched rather abruptly one week from the
Gene Wood version of "Anything You Can Do" to the Gene Wood version of "Beat the Clock"...

...KFIZ-TV's "Grab Bag" was a local talk show co-hosted by Steve Peterson, then a disc jockey on
KFIZ Radio, and a woman simply identified as Wilma, who I think may have been a columnist for
the Fond du Lac Commonwealth Reporter newspaper...

34- Cartoons

...at one point, KFIZ-TV would also rebroadcast this airing of "Sesame Street," but again the
crank-up of WPNE-TV put an end to that. When they did carry "Sesame Street," KFIZ-TV would
sign on at 11:30 A.M. (at one point 11:00 to add "The Electric Company") and sign back off the
air at 12:30, then sign back on at 2:00 with "Make Room for Daddy," "I Love Lucy" at 2:30, "Grab
Bag" at 3:00, "Uncle Doug's Cartoon Club" at 3:30 (the "cartoons" listed at this time) and
"Sesame Street" at 4:30...

..."Uncle Doug's Cartoon Club" was a local kiddie show starring Uncle Doug McGrath, who was
also the farm reporter for KFIZ Radio. The cartoons being shown would be the TV Mr. Magoos,
"Bozo," "Hercules," "The Funny Company" and, for a short while, "Roger Ramjet"...

with Dick Lane commenting) on a Wednesday early fringe, pre-empting "The Paul Lynde Show"
from ABC at 7:00. KFIZ-TV ran it Saturdays from 6:30 to 8:00 P.M., right after either AWA "All-Star
Wrestling" or their American International Pictures beach movie package (as "Bikini Theater").
But then again, WBAY-TV did run "Roller Derby" (the S.F. Bay Bombers version) as a late Friday
afternoon hour around this time, too...

...Cavett was also pre-empted on WLUK, which chose instead to carry "The CBS Late Movie"
which WBAY-TV pre-empted in favour of their own syndicated packages...

..."The Untouchables" was the last syndicated rerun package KFIZ-TV bought; seven weeks after
this, the station folded. KFIZ-TV, KFIZ Radio and the Fond du Lac Commonwealth Reporter were
all owned by the same corporation, which attempted to sell each property off in mid-1972. KFIZ
Radio and the newspaper each got bought, but the TV station couldn't find a buyer (they tried to
sell to Gaylord as a satellite of WVTV Milwaukee, which KFIZ-TV was already rebroadcasting a
substantial amount of the week anyway, but Gaylord wasn't interested), so it was taken dark and
the license returned to the FCC...

"Galloping Gourmet" was syndicated in rerun form through the mid-1970s, until about 1975,
when Kerr's new 5-minute series, "Take Kerr", began.

Yikes, KFIZ-TV was the first TV station in the world?

On a VERY vaguely related note, I'd love to know anything about the apparently very brief (and
considerably more recent) life of WHBL-TV ch. 28 in Sheboygan. Yes, it did exist as I did see the
station once.

It existed in some form or another from 1985-87, and its original call letters were WMRW-TV. Its
current status (as DWHBL-TV) is "Permit canceled," effective 3/30/87.
Link: CDBS Callsign History for WHBL-TV

Another short-lived one from that era was WTHX-TV 16 Manitowoc. I don't know if this one ever
made it to air, but its status has been "Permit canceled" since 1988.

Re "Anything You Can Do": In September 1972

then-ABC affiliate WGHP/8 Greensboro/Winston-

Salem/High Point replaced "To Tell The Truth"

at 6:30 with the year-old Wood episodes of "AYCD."

In the 1973-74 season Channel 8 carried the Harron

episodes of "AYCD," while CBS affiliate WFMY/2

carried the Wood episodes of "Beat The Clock" at 7.

Re: Retro: Wisconsin, October 4, 1972

KFIZ sounds like a very historic station, even though it was only on for four years.

WPNE, Green Bay's PBS, had just signed on the air about a month earlier, so before that, the
local stations in Green Bay probably picked up "Sesame Street" and the other CBS programs.

Surprisingly, the State Journal did not pick up the listings for WVTV in Milwaukee, even though a
lot of people probably got it via microwave back in those days.

I don't recall WVTV being on cable in Madison when we got cable in our dorm in 1979. ISTR the
only out-of-town station was WGN.

2 - HBO

3 - automated weather channel

4 - "WYOU" public access channel

5 - WMTV/NBC

6 - CNN

7 - WKOW/ABC

8-

9 - WGN

10 -

11 - WHA/PBS

12 - educational access

13 - WISC/CBS

Can't remember what was on channels 8 and 10. Been too many years! Maybe
WMVS/Milwaukee was on 10?

Another short-lived one from that era was WTHX-TV 16 Manitowoc. I don't know if this one ever
made it to air, but its status has been "Permit canceled" since 1988.

I don't believe the station in Manitowoc ever made it to air, though I recall seeing a story during
a local Today Show cutaway on WLUK one Fall 1983 morning about a license being granted (I
don't recall any other details in that story besides "Manitowoc" and "Channel 16").

I actually came across two entries tonight in the FCC search for a Channel 16 in Manitowoc that,
sure enough, both display the "D" prefix for cancellation. One had a 4/17/1984 start date for the
call sign WYJE, while the other was for the above mentioned DWTHX-TV that was cancelled on
3/9/1988.

For what it's worth, Broadcasting & Cable in 1998 published a table of early digital TV channel
assignments, and it displayed Manitowoc's Channel 16 with a digital assignment of Channel 19.

And oddly enough, since you mentioned Sheboygan above, W29DJ in Sheboygan (which I don't
know if it's still broadcasting or not) spent time earlier this decade on Channel 16, where they
currently have a permit to construct a digital signal.

BPatrick:

In looking over this schedule, some of the shows (other than regular ones) looked very
familiar..Then I realized why:I had done a retro schedule for Cleveland/Akron July 25, 1964 about
3 years ago..August 2005..Just for kicks here is that schedule for comparison..

As WAKR was the "Local" station in Akron..and the listings are in a grid format, 49 is listed first
here.

*Prior to the sign-on of WPNE-TV/38 Green Bay, WHRM-TV/20 Wausau and WHWC-TV/28
Menomonie, the Wisconsin Educational Communications Board brokered blocks of programming
time from several commercial stations in order to air "Sesame Street," "The Electric Company"
and in-school instructional programs under the umbrella title "Classroom." The station that the
most time was brokered from was KFIZ-TV/34 Fond du Lac, which simulcast programming
relayed from the off-the-air signals of WMVS-TV/10 Milwaukee, WHA-TV/21 Madison and WLUK-
TV/11 Green Bay. Prior to this, KFIZ-TV usually signed on the air at 2:00 P.M. with reruns of
"Make Room for Daddy" and "I Love Lucy." The coordinator for this brokering program was Russ
Widoe, who in earlier years had been cartoon hosts Colonel Caboose on WBAY-TV/2 Green Bay
and Captain WITI on WITI/6 Milwaukee. It was Widoe who had been instrumental in moving the
location of the proposed Green Bay-market PBS outlet from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh
(where it was to hae had the call sign WHKW-TV) to the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay; in
the same process, the NPR affiliate for the Green Bay market was also moved from Chilton,
directly across Lake Winnebago from Oshkosh, to UW-GB and the call sign changed from WHKW
to WPNE.
**This combination of two stations running their own versions of "Dialing for Dollars" created a
lot of frustration in Eastern Wisconsin. The signals of both WFRV-TV/5 Green Bay and WISN-
TV/12 Milwaukee were equally well-recieved in Fond du Lac and Sheboygan Counties; in fact,
WISN-TV also operated translator stations in both Sheboygan and Fond du Lac. The formulas for
the two games were different -- a cash amount and a number "up" or "down" on WISN-TV, and a
cash amount and the name of one of that evening's NBC prime time programs on WFRV-TV --
which meant that a Sheboygan or Fond du Lac County contestant sometimes uttered the nams
"Daniel Boone," "Laugh-In" or "Flip Wilson" over CBS affiliate WISN-TV.

***The 10:00 "To Be Announced" on KFIZ-TV was a direct result of the local newscast on
WVTV/18 Milwaukee. The newscast would rarely, if ever, end atexactly 10:15, and KFIZ had
arranged to simulcast WVTV's carriage of "The Merv Griffin Show" (which was usually tape-
delayed by WVTV from CBS the previous weeknight). So KFIZ, instead of airing either the
Milwaukee-based newscast of WVTV or producing its own, usually ran a couple of "Mr. Magoo"
cartoons and some public service anouncements until WVTV rolled its Griffin tape. Thus,
although the listing makes it appear that KFIZ was carring the same Griffin show from a direct
CBS feed as WLUC-TV/6 Marquette and WSAU-TV/7 Wausau, in fact KFIZ merely put 10:30 on
their listing bulletin and would already be well into the previous night's Griffin show by the time
10:30 did roll around.

Re: Retro: Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, Friday, December 17, 1971

George Carlin was on the Tonight show that night...I wonder if that was his first time on the
show after he "went hippie", as the old folks of the day put it? I remember being shocked by his
appearance when I saw him with long hair, beard and T-shirt for the first time. Seems like he
disappeared from TV for a year or so in between the clean-cut years and the hippie years.

...it may have been. In fact, his post-transformation record album, FM & AM, was released by
Little David/Atlantic just over a month later, and as a result of that LP's success, RCA Victor
reissued Carlin's 1967 album Take-Offs and Put-Ons on its RCA Camden budget label (later
reissued again on Pickwick) with a new cover http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3079/...d302a8.jpg?
v=0 featuring a charicature of his "hippie" persona...

Re: Retro: Chicago Tuesday, October 30, 1951

Couple of things;

WBKB 10am Creative Cookery was hosted by Francois Pope. The theme song was a Chopin song
(name forgotten but I can whistle it).

wnbq

"Norman Rose" was actually "Norman Ross, a news commentator.

"Hawkins Falls" was the first soap opera on tv.

10am on WGN "Your Figure Ladies featured "Paul Fogarty", a muscle bound guy in a black shirt
who exercised to live organ music.

530pm "The Chimp on wenr, followed a monkey named "Chatter" all over the place, with a guy
doing the monkey''s "voice."

I grew up in Chicago and probably watched tv that day. I remember alot of this. Thanks, Butch.

I bet I can answer well any questions you may have.

From the Chicago Daily Tribune:


WBKB Ch. 4 (WBBM Ch. 2) (CBS)

6 PM Bob Elson (longtime Chicago personality)

10:45 Wendell Hall (singer who dates back

to the earliest days of radio)

...Bob Elson was, I think, still doing an early morning radio show on WCFL as well as calling the
White Sox games on both TV and radio. I have a 1936 aircheck of a post-season Cubs-Sox game
Elson did for the Blue Network of NBC and carried on WCFL, one of the network's three Chicago
affiliates at that time; attached to that mp3 is a sportscast Elson did for NBC Blue about 45
minutes after the game ended that was carried on WENR (NBC Blue's owned-and-operated
station then)...

...and as for Wendell Hall, one of the very earliest surviving commercial radio airchecks is a
February 1931 WTMJ Milwaukee distance check of a Hall performance on NBC as "The Pineapple
Picador" (his sponsor on that date was Libby's Fruit)...

12:30 Bob And Kay (not a misprint, not

Bob And Ray)

Besides, weren't Bob & Ray on NBC at the time?

Bob and Ray didnt start on NBC-TV Till November 1951-In a 15 minute early evening show..

Creative Cookery with the Pope Family was also shown at least in 1953 on WNBK-4 in Cleveland..

Re: Retro: Chicago Tuesday, October 30, 1951

Was one of the Pope family on "Creative Cookery"

Carmelita Pope? Seems she was popular in Chicago

around this time (was a panelist on "Down You Go,"

IIRC). I remember her commercials for Pam, the non-

stick product you apply to pans.

I'm also surprised that neither "Love Of Life" nor

"Search For Tomorrow" was carried in Chicago at

the time; both had debuted in September (but

then again, WBBM is the only CBS station outside

the Eastern time zone that carries "Guiding Light"

in the morning, which may say something about

the station's attitude toward soaps).

Re: Retro: Chicago Tuesday, October 30, 1951


IIRC, Carmelita Pope was Francois Pope's daughter.

By 1951, both the Cubs & Sox had exclusive deals with their repective radio outlets and WGN-TV.
Bob Elson did Sox games and Bert Wilson called the Cubs on radio then. Jack Brickhouse & Harry
Creighton called games on both sides of town on Channel 9. Elson had called both teams prior to
World War II, as did several others on several stations.

In 1951, White Sox day games were on WJJD, night games were on WCFL.

...hmmm...would the wrestling shows on WRCB and WRIP be the same promotion, and would
that promotion have been Angelo Poffo's ICW or another similarly-named outfit? And any idea if
the WDEF and WCWB wrestling shows would have been Memphis or Georgia?...

Re: Retro: Atlanta/Chattanooga/Macon Saturday, July 26, 1975

I can only assume that the International Wrestling

show is International Championship Wrestling, the one

you're referring to, and for some reason ended up on

both Chs. 3 and 61. WDEF's program was local;

wrestling in Chattanooga was promoted by Nick Gulas

and Roy Welch's company out of Nashville. WCWB's

is Georgia, but I think it was taped at the station and

was not the Atlanta show (although I do remember WRDW

Augusta carrying the Atlanta show on a week's delay);

WRBL Columbus had its own studio show with Georgia

wrestlers.

Thanks to NBC's all-night lineup, KTVF by the Fall of 1998 would now be 24 HOURS A DAY
Monday through Friday (though they would still sign-off for a half hour or so on the weekends).
The other stations except for KATN would all follow suit in the years to come, with KJNP going
24/7 in 2003.

When did Fairbanks, Alaska get the WB?

Until the fall of 1999, Fairbanks (and Anchorage) got their WB fix via WGN...I mean, Superstation
WGN...I mean, WGN America. I tried to get KTVF to run WB programming live from 4:00-6:00
pm; but faster than you can say "Secret Talents of the Stars", it BOMBED and satellite -- namely
WPIX, KWGN, and KTLA -- would be the only resort.

In 2005 or so, WB/CW returned to Alaska on cable and as digital subchannels on KATN/KIMO
(Anchorage)/KJUD (Juneau).

would carry various Popeye Cartoons into the mid 1970's

One O Clock Club would Debut on WEWS-TV 5 Monday, August 26, 1957..First for an hour, then
eventually 90 minutes. The show was a big hit until Mike Douglas came along on channel 3 in
December 1961. One O Clock Club lasted until 1964.

I noticed the name John B. Hughes. Wasn't he a

network radio newscaster in the '40s, either on

ABC or Mutual?

bpatrick:

I had one of my blog readers ask about John B. Hughes awhile back, I think he was with Mutual
Radio for a time in the 1940's..Not a lot about him anywhere on the Net. He did leave Cleveland
in the mid 1960's to return to New York City where he was from..

Small correction:Popeye Cartoons began on KYW-TV 3 September 2, 1957, not August..Barnaby


(Linn Sheldon) may not have started there as yet but he was definitely at Channel 3 before the
end of '57..

Re: Retro: Louisville/Lexington/Cincinnati/Evansville Saturday, June 20, 1959

This is when "Uncle Al" was on the ABC-TV Network on Saturdays. That longtime children's show
started at WCPO-TV Channel 9 in Cincinnati in the 1950's and continued to 1985 airing Mondays
thru Fridays. The program starred Al Lewis (Albert Lewis Slowik) as "Uncle Al" and his wife,
Wanda, as "Captain Windy". At one time in the 1950's, he had three daily programs on weekdays
of one hour each on Channel 9. Al and Wanda now reside east of Cincinnati near Hillsboro, Ohio.

Retro: Yuma, Arizona December 14 - 19, 1953

Yuma's first local TV station, KIVA channel 11, signed on October 8, 1953, and the local paper
began publishing the station's schedule in mid-December with the radio schedules. The station
would sign on with at test pattern at 3:00 PM and start regularly scheduled programming at 4:00
PM. The station went dark January 31, 1970.

I believe this was the show that feaured Bob Crane making all kinds of sexual jokes and lewd
comments to and about the audience only weeks before his murder. The program never did air
of course because of Crane's death. However even had Crane not died, I doubt the show would
have aired anyway thanks to Crane's odd behavor.

Re: Retro: Atlanta Tuesday, August 4, 1981

The minor-league baseball game on TBS was due to the MLB players strike. TBS would air
another Richmond at Pawtucket game in 1994 when the end of that season and the World Series
was cancelled. Seeing as I've been to McCoy Stadium (Pawtucket, RI) a few times, I actually
enjoyed the 1994 game enjoyable.

Anyone know when "Today" flipped to color? I figured it would have been in color by the

Retro: WNAO-TV Schedule Sunday, July 12, 1953

It was 55 years ago this July 12 that television first came to the Raleigh/Durham when WNAO-TV
first signed on UHF Channel 28. I thought that I'd like to celebrate the occasion early by posting
the schedule from that Sunday night.

9-10pm programming? Or two Sullivans back-to-back?

I'm guessing WNAO-TV was not interconnected and both

Toast and Web were kinnies a week or two late.

Their network feed times would have been 7-8 and 9-9:30

as NC was on EST and this is long before video tape.

Save AM radio...kill I-CRAP.

Re: Retro: WNAO-TV Schedule Sunday, July 12, 1953

I'd like to know about the 9-10 PM time slot myself.

But why would Raleigh/Durham not have been connected?

Greensboro and Charlotte were connected in 1950.


BTW, WNAO was the only CBS affiliate in North Carolina to

run Ed Sullivan at 7 or 8 (whichever), although WFMY began

doing so that fall. WFMY and WBTV had "The Colgate Comedy

Hour" (NBC) Sundays at 8; Sullivan aired after the CBS Sunday-

night news on WBTV and on Tuesdays at 10 on WFMY (starting

in the fall of 1952 when NBC temporarily dropped "Ted Mack's

Amateur Hour").

But in the fall of '53 WSJS (WXII)/12 signed on, took the NBC

affiliation (and "Colgate"), and Sullivan began airing in pattern

in the Triad. WBTV stuck with "Colgate" until about 1955.

Re: Retro: WNAO-TV Schedule Sunday, July 12, 1953

"It was 55 years ago this July 12 that television first came to the Raleigh/Durham when WNAO-
TV first signed on UHF Channel 28."

I know this is a really elementary question, but I'm going to ask it anyway: since TVs did not
come with UHF tuners until the early 60s, and there was no cable - how did viewers in cities like
Raleigh/Durham and other smaller markets receive reception from WNAO and other stations?
I grew up in LA, and of course, all the major stations were VHF. The first UHF stations
(independents) came into the LA market in the early 60s, and actually folded because so few
people could tune them in. The first UHF stations to make it were in the mid to late 60s - KCET 28
(NET, now PBS) and KMEX 34; LA's first Spanish language station. By then, cable was making
some inroads, and I believe most people who were able to view these two stations were able to
do so because they had cable.

TVs were expensive in those days - relative to median income - so middle- and working class
people did not buy new TVs for minor reasons, like to get color, or UHF stations. They generally
bought new TVs only when their old ones were unrepairable.

I doubt there was cable in Raleigh/Durham in 1953- so I am guessing that TV manufacturers


either sold TV with UHF tuners in small markets - or people were able to buy some kind of
converter boxes.

Am I close?

http://www.geocities.com/k8zhd/TVBox.html is a good start.

Looks like an interesting site..I know tbat UHF converters were being sold in the Canton, Ohio
area as late as 1967..Here's an article from my blog detailing the beginning of WJAN-TV 17 in
Canton January 3, 1967..with a newspaper ad for UHF converters..

Never had to rely on one of those -- from my earliest childhood, our TVs always had some sort of
UHF built-in (except for that ancient monstrosity at my grandparents' place in VT, but there was
no UHF to watch there then anyway). But many years ago, I picked up an old B-T converter at a
garage sale for a buck, and played with it for a little while. It suffered from major
imtermod/image problems all across the band, and even the strongest locals were never crystal-
clear. Plus the thing drifted like crazy -- you would have to tweak the tuning dial every 10
minutes or so. It isn't hard to see why so many early UHFs went belly-up if that was the sort of
technology viewers had to depend on to view them!

Re: Retro: WNAO-TV Schedule Sunday, July 12, 1953

You must be a few years younger than me, Stanislav. My parents bough their first TV set in 1956 -
an RCA 22 inch, I think...black and white, of course. Needless to say, it had no UHF tuner. That
was our only TV until 1968 - 12 years later.

I grew up in the 60s in a middle class neighborhood, and my parent's TV was pretty typical. I
don't remember any of my friends or neighbors having anything newer or better. More than a
few of the neighborhood TVs had problems requiring constant fiddling (as in standing up and
walking over to the TV - no remotes)...like twitchy vertical holds, snow and ghosts you could
make go away temporarily by banging on the side of the TV, and so on. Our RCA was one of the
more reliable sets. The TV repairman was a very popular and busy guy in town.

I don't remember any of my friends having TVs with UHF tuners built in, or even having
converter boxes. But we were in a marginal reception area, so the UHF stations probably
wouldn't have come in any way. Cable came to town about 1967 or so, and we not only got
excellent reception for the first time, but were then able to watch LA's two UHF stations.

Most certainly, TV sets were manufactured with UHF tuners included beginning in 1953. All new
TVs sold in the immediate Raleigh-Durham area begining in 1953 did include a UHF tuner.
HOWEVER--the UHF tuner was an optional feature and usually cost about $40 extra. They were
usually only sold in areas which had UHF stations or the prospect of a UHF station coming on.
When WNAO/28 went dark in 1958, TV dealers went back to selling VHF only sets in Raleigh. I
remember the Sears catelog offering all their TVs with a UHF option (for about $40 more) until
1964, when they were required by law to include UHF. Two additional notes--WNAO was not the
first station to offer TV to Raleigh-Durham. Some people there began buying TVs in 1949 when
WFMY/2 in Greensboro came on. Those early adopters did, in fact, have to go out and buy UHF
converters when WNAO/28 came on---I remember my grandmother's Motorola converter, next
to her VHF signal booster (for WFMY) on top of her Sylvania "Halolite" TV in Raleigh, along with
her huge VHF antenna, and small UHF "bowtie" on the roof. Also, people bought new
(repalcement) TVs quite often in the 50s. For one thing, the early sets did not last long. Secondly,
new features, including larger and larger screen sizes, made the new sets very attractive.

Interesting information, Fortmill - thanks. By the early 60s, TV sets had a decent lifespan, and
color was too expensive for most people...just to be able to watch about a dozen programs in
color. At least where I grew up, you didn't replace your TV until the repairman was making
monthly house calls, or the repairman declared your TV no longer worth fixing. People even
replaced blown-out picture tubes back then - which was not cheap.

These days, we take modern electronics for granted. When you think a typical TV set in the mid
50s cost at least $150 - plus $40 or so more for a UHF converter in places like Raleigh/Durham -
Using the online inflation calculator, that $200 cost is the equivalent to over $1,500 these
days...for a not very large black and white set with one speaker monaural sound and no remote
control.

When we moved to Raleigh in 1957 we bought a

set that actually had built-in UHF capability (coming

from Greensboro and WFMY, it was the only way we

could see our favorite CBS shows), and we watched

WNAO probably more than we did WRAL or WTVD.

After WNAO went dark we couldn't use that UHF

capability again until we moved to Norfolk in 1966.

There were two UHFs on the air there: WHRO/15

(NET, the predecessor of PBS) and WYAH/27 (Pat

Robertson's CBN station). The new 28 in the Triangle

didn't sign on until 1968, by which time we were in

Greenville, SC.

I was born in '60. The first TV I remember us having was an RCA model that had only a VHF tuner.
I'm sure it was something that my parents scraped and saved to buy. At the time, it didn't matter,
since Birmingham had only three TV stations at the time: 6 (ABC), 10 (NET), and 13 (NBC/CBS).
When I was 5, Channel 42 signed on, and of course, we couldn't pick them up. I remember going
to my dad's mother's house, where she had a UHF converter that enabled her to pick up 42. IIRC,
the picture was almost unwatchable...and she lived less than five miles (as the crow flies) from
the Channel 42 transmitter.

When I was 6, my mom's parents bought my younger brother and me a TV to go in our bedroom
(yeah, being the kids of an only child had its perks!) The Sylvania model had a built in UHF tuner,
which enabled us to pick up Channel 42...and the picture was almost as unwatchable on that set
as it was at my grandmother's---we lived less than four blocks from her. I think part of the
problem to Channel 42's poor reception was that they didn't broadcast at full power for many
years.

You must be a few years younger than me, Stanislav. My parents bough their first TV set in 1956 -
an RCA 22 inch, I think...black and white, of course. Needless to say, it had no UHF tuner. That
was our only TV until 1968 - 12 years later.

By the time I was old enough to be playing with the TV, it was the early-mid 60's (I was born in
'58). Eventually, I discovered that our TV had a UHF tuner -- the rest of the family had no clue.
See, this may sound strange, but I hope others will back me up on it. Some TVs sold back in the
day "supposedly" didn't have a UHF tuner -- the front panel had the VHF dial and, beneath it,
just a flat panel covering where UHF would be. Some even had that little panel labeled "For
UHF." You may find it hard to believe, but some such sets -- including ours -- actually HAD a tuner
behind that little panel, attached to the panel, and by loosening up the panel a bit (it was glued
on to discourage exactly what I was doing, but was easily freed up with a screwdriver or nail file),
you could actually turn it, thereby also turning the UHF tuner! (Of course, you were tuning in the
blind, but it was pretty easy to find the various channels by trial and error.) Yup, it was probably a
racket -- you'd call the TV repairman and say you wanted UHF "added" to your set, he'd come
out and spend about half an hour futzing around, and in reality all he would do is take the
"placeholder" panel off and put on a numbered dial. Then he would charge you an arm and a leg
for installing what essentially was a $2 part.

I do hope others will chime in on this, so the world knows I'm not making it up. Over the years, I
saw similar old sets a couple of times in motels with the same setup (flat "For UHF" panel
instead of a dial, but the tuner present and functioning).

Hotel TV's made through the 70's had the same cap in place of a UHF knob. When the cap was
removed you could use the VHF knob and tune UHF.
I came across a late model (early 70's vintage) UHF converter and it actually worked well. It was
very sensitive.

Re: Retro: WNAO-TV Schedule Sunday, July 12, 1953

I think most of the VHF sets manufactured in the early 60s had that "UHF cap" somewhere on
the front of the set. I remember when WCCB/36(now channel 18) came on the air in Charlotte in
1964, several of my relatives there called the TV repair man in and had a UHF tuner installed
where the cap had been. WCCB's arrival was a very big deal in Charlotte since CHarlotte was
determined to be a big city and you couldn't really be big time if you only had 2 TV stations.
Some TV sets (Zeniths, I think) during that period had the option of installing a "UHF strip" which
somehow converted one of the unused VHF positions for a single UHF channel. My aunt in
Charlotte did that.

the cable companies (even in Charlotte) carried

WGHP when both stations were ABC affiliates, so

that people in that area would have an ABC affiliate?

As for WBMG, strangely enough I lived across town,

in Center Point, and had no problem picking up Ch. 42

(of course, I could also pick up Ch. 11 in Atlanta when

conditions were right, which was fairly often), and

without benefit of anything but the rabbit ears on my

portable TV and nothing at all on our console set downstairs.

The original WCCB on channel 36 probably was not a powerhouse--they broadcast from what
was probably about a 500 ft tower on Independence Blvd, right next to what is now Cricket
Arena. Educational WTVI/42's similar tower was right across the street (the lower part of that
tower still stands). WCCB moved to channel 18 in 1967--on a new 1300 ft tower in NW Charlotte
and used 5,000,000 watts--the first 5 megawatt TV station in the country. Some would say that
the introduction of Jefferson Pilot Cable and Cox-Cosmos Cable in Charlotte, also in 1964, was
actually an attempt by WBTV and WSOC to limit local competition in Charlotte. In addition to
WGHP, they also carried WSPA, WIS, and WXII. I don't think WGHP was carried because WCCB
had a weak signal (besides all my relatives in Charlotte got perfectly fine reception on WCCB/36).
After all, WGHP was also carried on Cablevision of Raleigh (another JP property), and
WRAL/5/ABC was anything but weak. The fact is, there was little content for cable systems to
carry in those days, and WGHP had rather unique programing for a station in the Carolinas (yes,
it was carried on a number of systems in SC , as well). When WTTG and WDCA came along a few
years later, the Charlotte cable systems dropped WGHP and WXII while WIS and WSPA continued
to be carried.

I'm guessing WNAO-TV was not interconnected and both

Toast and Web were kinnies a week or two late.

Their network feed times would have been 7-8 and 9-9:30

as NC was on EST and this is long before video tape.

From the Raleigh News and Observer:

5:25 Opening Ceremonies

5:35 People and Places in and Around Raleigh

5:45 Top Tunes (summer replacement for Perry Como's Chesterfield Supper Club)

6:00 Hopalong Cassidy

7:00 Weeks News in Review

7:15 Weeks Sports in Review

7:30 Your Playtime

8:00 Toast of the Town with Ed Sullivan

9:00 TV Theater (could be either Philco TV Playhouse or Goodyear TV Playhouse)

10:00 The Web

10:30 Late News in Review

10:45 Late Sports in Review

11:00 Sunday Masterpieces

11:45 Sign-Off

The one I got from the Durham Morning Herald was taken from an ad promoting the new
station, which wasn't very helpful (for which I apologize). I hope this takes away some of the
confusion.

"TV Theater" couldn't have been "GE Theater"? I think

it alternated with Fred Waring's show on CBS at the time.

Speaking of WGHP as a unique station for the Carolinas,

and the fact that it was on some South Carolina cable systems,

Channel 8 was heavily influenced from Atlanta: it was the only

non-Storer-owned station to use Storer's rep firm (Storer owned

WAGA for years), some of its earliest managers came from WAGA,

and g.m. Eugene Bohi (1973-sometime in the '80s) and WXIA g.m.

Jeff Davidson (1976-mid '80s) had worked for the same company

(Sonderling Broadcasting) in the early '70s and both were on the

ABC affiliates' board before WXIA went to NBC. The schedules of

WGHP and WXIA were so similar when both were ABC affiliates that

I once asked local sales manager Mike Morris if that was intentional.

He admitted it was.

Back to WNAO for a minute: WFMY and WNAO are the first stations
I remember watching, and I still think that if UHF tuners had been

mandatory in WNAO's day, it would have survived the inroads of

WRAL. WNAO would have needed a boost to the west (Durham and

Chapel Hill), but I still recall it to have been, overall, a pretty good

station.

I believe WNAO was very popular in Raleigh---from my memory, they had near-universal
adoption in Wake County--in fact you still see many of the old "bow tie" antennas on older
buildings in Raleigh. But as you say, the problem was Durham and Chapel Hill where reception
would not have been nearly as good. WNAO ended up with the CBS affiliation which should have
been excellent, HOWEVER, WFMY in Greensboro was also CBS, and channel 2 was well recieved
in Durham and CHL, often without an outside antenna, which would have been required for
WNAO. Still, I think the real problem was that the News and Observer wanted out of the
broadcast business. They sold WNAO-AM-FM-TV to Holden of Greensboro who also owned
WTOB-AM-TV in Winston Salem. WTOB/channel 26 was already dark. I don't know whether the
N&O or Holden took 28 dark, but Holden held on to the licenses for both 26 and 28, in fact he
changed the calls of 28 to WKIX-TV!, even though it was off the air. WNAO-AM-FM, of course,
became the legendary WKIX-AM/FM, the wonderful top 40 station for the Triangle. Meanwhile
competition for the license for channel 8 in the triad was heating up and Holden's Southern
Broadcasting was one of the applicants. At the time, the FCC was known to give preference to
applicants who held permits for economically challenged UHF stations--and Southern had two!
Eventually, they awarded the CP to Southern rather than another applicant, Jefferson Pilot, who
had expected to get the CP because they had moved their channel 8 (WBTW) in Florence Sc to
make way for 8 in the Triad. The only stipulation was Southern (Holden) had to dispose of WKIX-
TV and WTOB-TV. I read about all this back in the 70s in accounts from old Broadcasting
Magazines I found at the University of SC/Columbia.

Growing up in Garner, I remember WKIX airing promos

for WGHP starting in 1963 (when WGHP went on the air),

although I didn't know then that they were sister stations

(I encountered another Southern duopoly in Birmingham

in the late '60s with WSGN radio/WBMG-TV).

And I agree that KIX was a great top-40 station, especially

when Mike Reineri was their morning man; while I think

WQXI Atlanta was the best top-40 station in the South, I'd

put KIX in the top three or four.

Re: Retro: WNAO-TV Schedule Sunday, July 12, 1953

I don't remember exactly when TV's were required to have built in UHF tuners. I do recall that in
order to receive WOSU-34 from Columbus for a TV course my high school participated in that we
but a long Yagi on the roof and had one of those Blonder Tongue converters, about the size of a
small radio on top of the set. Later on that set which was our first got relegated as a second set
for the basement rec-room. This was probably like 56 or 57 and the new set we got had a built in
UHF tuner. It had two dials, the top for VHF and the lower one for UHF. You put the upper dial
which clicked from 2 to 12 in a position between 2 and 13 labeled UHF and used the lower dial
which worked kind of like a radio dial to get the UHF stations.

I wonder if those capped dials they mentioned on here were like that. The VHF tuners at the
time had tuned circuits that switched in as the dial turned, one for each channel. I think both of
those sets were Crosleys, I know the first one was. Later my Dad got a set for their bedroom that
had a kind of remote control. It consisted of a plastic tube that connected to the back of the set.
There was a rubber squeeze bulb on the other end that clicked the dial on channel everytime
you squeezed. The 13th position turned off the set and it only had VHF. There was no volume or
other control just that pneumatic gadget. That set was either by Sylvania or GE I think.

TV sets manufactured after July, 1964 were required by federal law to be UHF capable. Prior to
that time, most sets were available with UHF tuners for about $40 extra. The surprising thing
was that the new UHF/VHF sets offered in 1964 did not cost a penny more than the old VHF-only
sets.

Not surprising really. In major markets, UHF was probably a tough sell, and people would have
resented paying extra. Los Angeles, for instances, had 7 VHF stations - the three networks and 4
independents. Until about 1966, there were only three stations on UHF: a really low-rent indy
that went belly-up after less than 2 years; a Spanish language channel; and KCET, the NET (now
PBS) affiliate. NET was in it's early days and was not publicized widely. So unless your first
language was Spanish, UHF tuners were useless.

Re: Retro: WNAO-TV Schedule Sunday, July 12, 1953

Two things I think are frequently forgotten about early UHF:

- While UHF tuners were required beginning in 1964, the tuners that were installed were pretty
bad. Free-running oscillator driving a diode mixer, only one (or *maybe* two) tuned circuits
before the mixer and no amplification until the IF. Hard to tune, hard to keep tuned, pretty
"deaf". Even if UHF tuners had been installed in TVs from the beginning in 1945, UHF stations
would have been at a disadvantage. But there's more:

- Station powers were a lot lower. By the 1960s most VHF stations were using the highest powers
permitted by FCC regulations - 100,000 watts on channels 2-6, 316,000 on 7-13. However, as
recently as 1966 *no* UHF station was running more than 1,000,000 watts - the limit is five
times that. Many UHF stations were running less than 100,000 watts, less than 1/50th of the
power the FCC would authorize.

So even if UHF tuners of equal quality to VHF tuners had been installed in TVs from the start,
UHF would *still* have been at a disadvantage due to low transmitter powers.

Re: RETRO BOSTON TV- THANKSGIVING 1988

Wow! How dated is this list that it goes back to when WLVI aired cartoons well into the 11 AM
hour!

And I'd be remissed if I didn't lament the late WNHT, silenced in mid-Sajak.

The wrestling on WATL wasn't World Class; it wasn't nationally syndicated until 1982.

...perhaps that assumption was made because WATL was where Joe Pedecino had his Saturday
night wrestling block and he produced and co-hosted "Pro Wrestling This Week" with Gordon
Solie not very long after this; Pedecino went on to pick up the remnants of WCCW, renaming it
the Global Wrestling Federation, in the early '90s...

Soap Factory also aired on Baltimore's WBFF-TV 45 as well.

I barely remember the show itself but I DO remember when a number of TV preachers went
after that show and DEMAND it be taken off the air because they felt the dancing the people did
on that show was "..people having sex with their clothes on !!". Oddly these same people never
did attack other similar shows like Soul Train and Dance Fever ( American Bandstand I can
somewhat see..the fear of Dick Clark and his lawyers ) but they did attack Soap Factory Disco. Go
figure !!!

Thank you for these memories... I can remember watching most of the shows on CBS Channel 5.
Waga was very kid friendly all thru my years of growing up. Lots of great cartoons. This was also
about to be the saddest time of my life, because in less than a month from Aug 26 1978 I would
lose my mom..I was 13 and it was hard. But once again thanks for taking me back to a very
simple time in my life.. It was fun.

My mistake. That show came out of Dallas, IIRC. The show on

Channel 36 was World League Wrestling, a very minor-league outfit

started by Lars Anderson and featuring some of the Georgia wrestlers

from the days when it was on Channel 11 and Ed Capral was the announcer.

I've forgotten now but Capral may have been the announcer on this show.

I should add that CBS had a total of 24 hours of

coverage of the Rome Olympics. The total combined

coverage of the Beijing Olympics on U.S. networks

is 3600 hours.

WEHT Ch. 50 (Ch. 25) Evansville (CBS)


I'm curious... Did they broadcast on both channels at this time, or did they switch to Channel 25
later. Also was Louisville in the Central Time zone at this time? I was born in 1967, and I seem to
remember seeing Walter Cronkite on at 5:30 one summer during the Nixon administration, but I
thought that was something new, perhaps due to the energy crisis. I also heard that the Bigham
family (then owners of WHAS TV and radio) was one of the supports of having Louisville in the
Eastern time zone. Any truth to this rumor?

Re: Retro: Louisville/Lexington/Cincinnati/Evansville Thursday, September 8, 1960

No, they switched to Ch. 25 later; I put it parentheses

because many of you are more familiar with it on 25

than on 50.

At the time, Louisville was on Central time; I think the

change to Eastern was made in 1961 (my sixth-grade

teacher grew up in Louisville either in the late '40s or

early '50s and she could recall Louisville being on Central

time).

During the energy crisis of 1973-74 Kentucky refused to

go on year-round daylight-saving time; its location would


have had sunrise around 9 AM and played havoc with kids

boarding buses for school. During that period both Louisville

and Lexington stations followed Central Time schedules, which

is why you would have seen Cronkite at 5:30 instead of 6:30.

(WLKY continued to run Howard K. Smith and Harry Reasoner

at 6, but during this period they had the third, and not the

first, feed of ABC's newscast.)

I don't know about the rumor concerning the Binghams.

WEHT Ch. 50 (Ch. 25) Evansville (CBS)

Eastern time zone. Any truth to this rumor?

In the late 60's WEHT moved to Channel 25, somewhere I have the news release to pinpoint the
date. Also, WFIE began life on Channel 62 and moved to Channel 14 a few years later.

Also, it is worth noting Indiana didn't participate in DST for years. For commerce purposes the
counties near Chicago, Cincinnati, Louisville and Southwest Indiana did participate. I worked for a
company that did business with Indiana counties that didn't participate while we in Kentucky
did. Six moths out of the year you had to remember your Indianan clients were on fast time.

Given the convoluted history of time in Indiana -- time zone changes and shifts, counties
"unofficially" observing DST (or not), areas switching back and forth from ET to CT over the years
-- I keep thinking of that Chicago song: "Does anyone really know what time it is?" In Indiana,
probably not. ;D
It was just in 2006 that the whole state of

Indiana went on DST, and then a few counties

switched from Eastern to Central time.

I remember that my dad worked for Dow Chemical

and would have to go to Indianapolis; he had difficulty

remembering that in the summer months Indianapolis

was an hour behind South Carolina, where we lived then.

Just for the record, there are a few cities and towns in

Alabama that observe Eastern time even though officially

they're on Central, such as Phenix City and Lanett. The

reason is the proximity to Columbus, GA.

There are also at least a couple of border towns in Nevada that unofficially observe Mountain
Time because their casino business comes predominantly from that time zone: Jackpot
(bordering Idaho) and West Wendover (bordering Utah). In addition, The Border Inn in Baker,
Nevada, is uniquely situated -- the motel rooms are in Utah (Mountain Time), while the office,
restaurant, and casino are in Nevada (Pacific Time). One has to assume that the clocks in the
hotel rooms are on MT.

Yes..I have a Reprint NYC TV Guide for September 8-14, 1956 (Elvis Presley Cover)..Channel 5 did
repeat the same movie, not unlike WOR-9's "Million Dollar Movie"

Wow -- a whole 3 hours of programming. Boy, what would those early struggling UHFs do
without those public domain film shorts, huh? Odd that they are listed as ABC/DuMont, yet
there's not a single network show on the sked. (Except maybe "Warner Presents?" -- what was
that?)

Looking at this, it's not hard to imagine why so many early UHFs failed. I'm sure most folks in the
Bridgeport area could get at least watchable VHF signals from NYC and New Haven. Look at the
schedules -- what would YOU be watching that night? Would ANYONE be struggling with a balky
converter box to watch channel 43? Highly doubtful.

Re: Retro: New York City Tues, Aug 28, 1956

I see WRCA-TV's late afternoon movie show at this point was called Evening Theater. At what
point did it become Movie 4? (I'm guessing prior to March 1958.)
As to WABC-TV's Night Show (when exactly did that premiere?), that umbrella was used until
September 1963 when it was revamped as The Best of Broadway. That title first took effect at
the same time Channel 7 premiered their first attempt at a late-afternoon movie program, called
The Big Show, which was an ancestor to their fondly-remembered The 4:30 Movie. Unless their
1:00 Afternoon Show and 3:00 Film Festival were even earlier predecessors to The 4:30 Movie.

As to the Channel 43 listing for Warner Presents: This was Warner Bros. Presents which also
aired on WABC.

I've always been puzzled by the latter title when I've seen it in old listings. These were movies
showing on a TV station -- nothing to do with Broadway plays or musicals. And WABC-TV wasn't
located on Broadway at any time AFAIK. So where did the "Broadway" of the title fit in? Maybe
just "Broadway" in the sense of a generic concept of New York culture/glamour/history?

WBHist:

I think the 3:00 "Film Festival" You are referring to is the "Afternoon Film Festival"..A series of
British movies that actually ran on the ABC network in 1956-57, being replaced by American
Bandstand in August 1957.

watch soap operas... )

Andrea
"As The World Turns" has aired at 2 PM since

1987; "The Bold And The Beautiful" airs on

CBS at 1:30.

"Warner Brothers Presents" started as a series

of three rotating shows (sort of like "NBC Mystery

Movie" in the '70s): "Cheyenne," "Casablanca,"

and "King's Row." The last ten minutes of the show

were devoted to "previews of coming attractions"--

Warner films at your local theater. The second year

(1956-57) only "Cheyenne" returned, alternating with

something called "Conflict," and the previews were

dropped. Year three, "Cheyenne" and "Sugarfoot"

alternated, joined in the 1958-59 season by "Bronco,"

a series hastily created when "Cheyenne" star Clint

Walker refused to work until he got the raise he demanded.

September 1963 when it was revamped as The Best of Broadway.

located on Broadway at any time AFAIK. So where did the "Broadway" of the title fit in? Maybe
just "Broadway" in the sense of a generic concept of New York culture/glamour/history?

At least a few movies aired under this umbrella - such as the 1953 film Gentlemen Prefer
Blondes - did start out on Broadway. And it's conceivable a few stars of the films shown also
appeared on Broadway within their respective careers. But I agree that this title didn't make that
much sense. (It was on TBOB, in 1967, that Hitchcock's Psycho was first shown on TV, B.T.W.)
And while WABC-TV itself was never located on Broadway, its AM radio sister powerhouse
("Musicradio 77") had their studios at 1926 Broadway between 1964 and 1966, after which they
moved to ABC's then-corporate headquarters of 1330 Avenue of the Americas.

...well, remember, Anthony Perkins was nominated for a Tony for his work in Look Homeward
Angel on Broadway a couple of years before making Psycho, so that umbrella theory about the
title fits in his case. As I recall, CBS had the rights to air Psycho prior to 1967 but Bill Paley himself
was scared to put the thing on TV, even that late in time...

TV Guide, at the time of WABC's first airing of Psycho, mentioned that CBS intended to air the
film earlier in the 1966-67 season, but chickened out. For years, Psycho aired, if at all, late at
night; only a decade or more later, by which time WOR-TV held the airing rights, was it shown in
the daytime.

NOTE: Boxing and "Make That Spare" necessitated

live coverage, hence the live feed one hour earlier

zones, although some West Coast stations delayed

primetime starting at 7:30, ABC chose to air "Roaring

20's" in the EDT markets and "Leave It To Beaver" in

EST markets, holding "20's" until 10 PM (EST).

The pattern went something like this:

For EST/CST stations, I suppose this allowed ABC not to have to

send them the delayed feed on Saturday nights, other than for

Roaring 20s. I don't recall if ABC had a late news feed (11 EDT)

then, but if they didn't they could just send Roaring 20s down the

regular line again at 11 EDT/10 EST and dispense with the alternate

feed entirely. Must have been a budgetary decision by whomever

were the "number crunchers" of that era, as conventional wisdom

would be to disrupt as few shows as possible, which could be done

by flipping only Welk and Boxing/Bowling on the EST/CST feed.

Closed circuit for bpatrick:

As to the left coast, since its "normal" feed was 6:00-9:30 PDT,

did you mean some stations delayed Welk until 9:30 (not 9)?

Would Prospect have re-fed the show 9:30-10:30 on tape for

those affils who preferred it then? It would be a "gold mine" if

someone can get a hold of summer 1961 ABC affil schedules in

SAN, LAS, SFO, RNO, PDX or SEA for Saturday nights.


As for the Mountain time zone...well let's not go there ;D other

than to say there was no daylight time in the zone in 1961,

except for a couple of isolated counties in MT and NM. (Can

anyone say "Los Alamos" and "Atomic Energy Commission"?)

I suspect they just took the EST/CST alternate feed and ran

everything "live" 5:30-9:00 MST.

Save AM radio...kill I-CRAP.

Re: Retro: Charlotte/Greenville/Tri-Cities/Knoxville Saturday, September 2, 1961

Some West Coast stations would run "Leave It To Beaver"

at 8 or 8:30 (the other half-hour they took for themselves),

then Welk at 9, and "Roaring 20's" at 10. There was a great

deal of discrepancy; Los Angeles and San Diego had completely

different schedules. Just check the Los Angeles Times from 1961.

Stations on CDT were on the normal (EDT) 6:30-10 pattern; stations on

CST probably ran "Beaver" at 6:30, Welk at 7, boxing at 8, "Make

That Spare" at 8:45, and "Roaring 20's" at 9.

And I won't try to guess how the Mountain time zone dealt with this.

My most recent Knoxville and Chattanooga schedules are from around

1999 or 2000. I never did subscribe to the Knoxville-Chattanooga edition

of TV Guide.

Re: Retro: Atlanta Thursday, August 31, 1978

"11:30 Life Of Riley (I feel sure these are

the Bendix episodes)"


No doubt - where I lived (LA) , the Bendix "Riley" ran for years off-and-on in afternoon or late
night reruns - though I don't remember seeing it past the early 70s. There were 217 episodes of
this version filmed from 1953 to 1958 - on film, I'm sure. I had never even heard of the Gleason
version until I read about it on these boards.

I don't think there were many episodes of the Gleason version - all very early 50s - and likely
possibly kinescoped.

Gleason filmed 26 episodes in the 1949-50 season,

but they failed to generate much interest at the time;

his Riley was a lot closer to Ralph Kramden than the

Riley people were used to on the radio (played by

Bendix). It wasn't until the late '70s, when Gleason had

become acknowledged as one of the medium's true legends,

that his "Riley" episodes came out of mothballs; Channel 46

in Atlanta ran them at 6 PM on Saturdays in 1978, and I have

seen them on TVLand, although not in the past couple of years

or so.

By the late 70s, I had moved to the Bay Area - I'm quite sure the Gleason episodes never made it
here. Too bad - I'd like to see some of them....or some of the Bendix shows for that matter. I
remember really liking them as a young kid - already in daily reruns.

It's too bad Classic TV networks can't get into acquiring and showing forgotten shows like these -
instead of the same endless cycle of Jeannies, Andy Griffiths, Sanfords, etc.

Re: Retro: Atlanta Thursday, August 31, 1978

I don't think the Gleason "Riley"s had a

large syndication; as I said, there were

only 26 of them. But if you ever do get

to see them, you'll find Gleason's Riley

to be somewhat more realistic than Bendix's.

I like to say that you can almost see Ralph

Kramden taking shape inside Gleason's head.

Maybe someone will get smart and release

them on DVD.

One consequence was that it gave the Falcons nationwide exposure on a superstation, albeit

Re: Retro: Western Ontario Wed, Aug 31, 1977

Western Ontario? This looks like Southern or SE Ontario to me. It may be west of Ottawa, but it
isn't the western part of the province. Isn't western Ontario the area above Lake Superior?

I would think that listings for Western Ontario would include cities like Sault Ste. Marie (ON and
MI), Thunder Bay, Kenora, and Duluth MN.

We have to save the Earth! It's the only planet with football and beer.

I think many Canadian s consider the southern part of Ontario as "Western Ontario" or even
"Southwestern Ontario", while the area including Kenora and Thunder Bay is known as
"Northwestern Ontario". In fact, the University of Western Ontario is based in London.

Re: Retro: Mobile/Biloxi/New Orleans Saturday, August 4, 1979

So, I'm assuming WGNO was carried on cable in Mobile. It's the only NOLA station listed. And
what's with all the other channel's listings ending at 9 PM? It is nice to see Saturday listings of
broadcast channels with no infomercials listed--actually some interesting programs, in addition
to sports, on Saturday afternoon...

I corrected the error after previewing the post, yet it stayed in there. It's actually "BJ and the
Bear". The ability to edit posts should last at least one day.

Re: Retro:Cleveland/Akron/Youngstown Monday, September 6, 1965

Was WEWS using "Eyewitness News" in 65?

I have always heard that WEWS was one of the first stations outside of Westinghouse ( KYW,
WJZ, KPIK, WBZ and KDKA ) to use the name Eyewitness News. I know Buffalo's WKBW-TV was
using it as far back as 1968. Not sure when the ABC O&O's ( except KGO and WXYZ ) picked it up
though.

KYW used "Eyewitness News" in Cleveland from 1959-June 1965..WEWS may have begun to use
Eyewitness News as early as fall 68-spring 69 or as late as 1971..Id have to research more on it..

WABC-TV in New York was the first of the ABC O&O's to use the EWN title, in November of 1968.
(Their first slogan was, "If You Weren't There, We Were.") In January of 1969, KABC-TV in Los
Angeles followed, then around that time WLS-TV in Chicago -- which premiered an embryonic
preview thereof with (Fahey) Flynn/(Joel) Daly News prior to WABC's unveiling of the format -- at
first modified its title to Flynn/Daly Eyewitness News, before shaving off the anchors' names
from the title. In the case of WXYZ, it was forced to call its newscasts Action News because rival
WJBK had first dibs on the EWN title in the Motor City.

It should be noted that the specific edit of Lalo Schifrin's "Tar Sequence" cue from Cool Hand
Luke originated with WABC, and tape dubs of that edit were sent to WLS, WXYZ, and Sydney,
Australia's TCN 9 (in the latter case, for their National Nine News). KABC and KGO did their own
edits (and thus sounded a bit clearer), though KGO's had more in common with WABC's than
was the case with KABC. The one to use the WABC edit longest had to be WXYZ, even past the
time the station was sold to WEWS' owner Scripps-Howard (definitely as of 1986, probably into
the early '90's). WLS was the first to dump it, in 1980, in favor of Frank Gari's Seven on Your Side
package, and WABC used their own edit up to 1983 when Mr. Gari's News Series 2000 first came
into use.

Yup, Steve Allen--in one of his comedy bits as a TV newscaster.

me down, pleathe...")

Re: Retro: Louisville/Lexington/Cincinnati Saturday, September 7, 1968

Per IMDB, it is a dubbed 1951 live-action Italian monstrosity (original title "Sette nani alla
riscossa") that one reviewer on the site calls "an amazingly campy piece of cheap schlock." Yes,
its is supposed to be loosely based on the Grimms tale, though they took more than their share
of liberties. (Apparently, one running "gag" involves an enormously fat woman falling onto one
of the dwarfs...now, that's comedy!) How did this one escape MST3K?

Re: New York City January 1945

...I have an aircheck from WEAF, NBC's New York radio station, from 6 June 1944 (D-Day) that
contains a promo spot for an H.V. Kaltenborn special on WNBT that night about the Allied
invasion of Nazi-occupied France. If that isn't the first radio promo for a TV show, it certainly has
to be the oldest existing -- or does anyone know of any older airchecks with similar plugs over
either WEAF or WABC (now WCBS)?...

Re: Retro: Alabama, July 30, 1970

Thanks for the memories, since I was living

in Birmingham at the time. I keep thinking

that, at one point, Channel 40 carried Cronkite

at 6, but from the way you have their schedule

listed, I don't think it was in July 1970.

This was after Channel 13 became full-time NBC

and Channels 40 and 42, full-time CBS, yet I see

"The Bold Ones" listed on delay on 13. I don't

remember now, so what did 13 carry on Sundays

at 9 (CT), when "The Bold Ones" aired on NBC?

If you have any more, especially from fall 1972 to

the end of 1979, I'd love to see them.

Re: Retro: Alabama, July 30, 1970

From wikipedia:

When WBMG-TV (channel 42, now WIAT) started telecasting in 1965, it nominally had a CBS
affiliation, but CBS allowed WAPI-TV to continue airing its higher-rated programming. This was
largely because WBMG had only started one year after the Federal Communications Commission
required that new television sets include all-channel tuning. To fill out the schedule, WBMG
aired some NBC programming that WAPI-TV turned down (such as The Tonight Show). Both
stations listed "CBS/NBC" as their affiliation. However, in May 1970, for a number of reasons,
WAPI-TV became the exclusive NBC affiliate, sending all of CBS's programming to WBMG. At the
same time that channel 13 became an exclusive affiliate of NBC and WBMG aligned with CBS,
WCFT in Tuscaloosa, Alabama (33)and WHMA in Anniston, Alabama (40) also affiliated with CBS.
Prior to that time, the primetime schedule of WCFT and WHMA virtually mirrored that of
WBMG.

"Cousin" Cliff Holman passed away Monday evening (Sept. 8th). He'd suffered from Alzheimer's
in recent years.

He was on then WAPI-TV 13 for much of his career, and left the station in August 1969 after
Channel 13 moved his daily hour-long Popeye/Three Stooges show from its live 4 PM timeslot to
a 30-minute tape-delay at 8:30 in the morning.

From there he went to Anniston to help put Channel 40 on the air. In addition to serving as
WHMA-TV's Promotion Director, he was able to again have a live afternoon show. But even 40
couldn't keep up that kind of program, and The Cousin Cliff Show ended late in 1972.

Re: Retro:Detroit/Western Lower Michigan/Toledo Monday, January 19, 1953

Cunningham's News Ace started in the '30s on

WXYZ radio; two of them were Mike Wallace and

Douglas Edwards. Cunningham's was a local

drugstore in Detroit.

I notice you have I Love Lucy listed twice on

Ch. 2. Wouldn't Lux Video Theater have been

on at 8, since Lucy came on at 9?

I also saw a listing for a program with Betty Clooney.

She was one of George Clooney's aunts; in fact, I

think she was the oldest. In order of birth, I believe

they were: Betty, Rosemary, Nick (George's dad),

and Gail. Gail never had much of a career; Nick is

best remembered as host of "The Money Maze" and

for his work on AMC. He's also a columnist and radio

personality in Cincinnati, and lost a race for Congress

a couple of years back (he's a Democrat, and his home

district in northern Kentucky is heavily Republican).

Re: Retro:Detroit/Western Lower Michigan/Toledo Monday, January 19, 1953

BPatrick:

I misread the Listing for I Love Lucy on Channel 2 at first. I thought I had corrected it.

Here is the correct WJBK-2 Prime Time Schedule

8PM Lux Video Theatre

8:30 Talent Scouts

9PM I Love Lucy-Little Ricky is born

9:30 Red Buttons

10PM Studio One

I suspected Betty Clooney was related to Rosemary, etc.

Thanks for catching the error..

Thanks for posting this. Did this TV Guide edition only list KELO in Sioux Falls or was KSOO-TV not
on the air yet? Or channel 5 in Mitchell? I didn't realize there were so few stations in
Nebraksa/South Dakota as late as 1960.

According to Wikipedia, KSOO-TV was still a couple of months away, it didn't sign-on until July
31st. KORN Mitchell also signed-on in '60, wasn't able to nail a date down on the Web (Wiki
didn't have the date either).

I've got a date now for KORN- according to the Broadcasting & Cable Yearbook, channel 5 beat
KSOO by just over a month and a half- KORN signed-on June 12/60.

Canadians knew this series as "Here Come the Seventies" -- this series, produced for CTV, was
about things and events that would exist during the course of that decade. Apparently, for
syndication outside the US, they decided to give themselves a little more room on the timeline.

Re: Retro: Atlanta Saturday, September 15, 1973

They could have given themselves until doomsday

and it wouldn't have mattered; the show wasn't

that big of a hit in the U.S. When it came to


syndicated documentaries, U.S. viewers tended

to prefer the nature shows: "Wild Kingdom," "Wild

Wild World Of Animals," "World Of Survival," etc.

Slightly off-topic but the mention of "World Of Survival"

reminded me that for a time in 1980-81 John Forsythe had

four projects at once: narrating this show, playing Blake

Carrington on "Dynasty," doing the voice of Charlie Townsend

on "Charlie's Angels," and doing commercials for Michelob.

The man must have written the book on time management.

Re: Retro: Nebraska/Sioux Falls/Sioux City Wed, Apr 13, 1960

I believe Sioux City's KVTV channel 9 has a place in rock & roll history. The wife of Roger Peterson
worked there. Roger Peterson was the pilot who flew the plane which carried not only himself
but Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper to their deaths. Peterson's wife got word
about the plane crash when the police stopped by KVTV and told her what happened. According
to a book about the crash I remember reading ( there were so many ), she had a "funny feeling"
when she saw the police showed up that her husband was dead.

Uh, listings before 1947 would probably fall under the category of something called "radio".

Re: New York TV- Fall 1947

This probably sums up TV in 1947:

2:00 PM - Test Pattern

4:00 PM - Cooking Show

4:30 PM - Cartoons

5:00 PM - Film

5:30 PM - Film

6:00 PM - News
6:15 PM - Film

6:30 PM - Local variety show

7:00 PM - Wrestling

8:30 PM - Boxing

10:00 PM - News

10:05 PM - Test Pattern

10:15 PM - Sign off

Network programming (just NBC & Dumont then - CBS & ABC didn't start their TV networks until
1948), was sparse. Neither network had a daily schedule as yet.

Re: New York TV- Fall 1947

Too bad video tape had not been invented yet, it would have been interesting to see what the TV
signal was like back then. What films did they show back then? I wonder what would they have
looked like on the TV screen, as they were picked up by the camera on the ancient film chains.

I would imagine within New York City the singal was good.

Believe it or not, about ten years BEFORE these listings, NBC-TV in its experimental days aired a
play . The play wasn't much but someone, somewhere did film the play right off the TV set as it
was airing live. The film ( no sound BTW ) is available at the Museum of TV & Radio in New York
City and from what I heard the picture quality was fantastic and we are talking the late 30's
here !!!

OK, here's what I think may be the most bizarre story in TV history:

In 1936, the BBC began testing TV broadcasts from London.

RCA got wind of the tests and decided it would be interesting to see if they could receive the BBC
telecasts in New York. They built a BBC-standards TV receiver & began monitoring.

In 1938, they succeeded.

And they filmed their trans-Atlantic TV reception.

You can view the film online.

http://www.apts.org.uk/recording.htm - 1938 BBC TV, recorded in New York!

What films did they show back then?

Basically, B-grade Westerns and other Poverty Row films; back then, the major studios avoided
television like the plague.

Other than Paramount, who owned WBKB Chicago (having bought Balaban & Katz) and KTLA Los
Angeles, as well as part of Dumont, which as we all know, totally screwed Dumont over with the
FCC.

They even tried to start their own network in the late '40s but it never really got off the ground -
5 shows (the best-known being A Time for Beany, the original puppet version of Beany & Cecil)
to 40 stations in 1950 was its peak.

Re: New York TV- Fall 1947

One wonders what might have happened if it werent for World War II..Television development
might have been accelerated on both sides of the Atlantic..And Maybe hastened the demise of
Network radio as it was known then..Shows and talent might have migrated to TV earlier..Not to
mention stations built sooner in more cities..Interesting possibilites..

I feel certain that all of these programs were seen in New York.

I don't have any local schedules pre-1947 but I will give you the network lineups for the fall of
1946. Primetime ended at 11 PM, and the only daytime programming was college football on
CBS and NBC on Saturdays.

I feel certain that all of these programs were seen in New York.

In the case of CBS, that would be only New York, since CBS didn't start feeding programs to other
stations until 1947, and the CBS Television Network didn't formally start until the spring of 1948.
Too bad video tape had not been invented yet, it would have been interesting to see what the TV
signal was like back then. What films did they show back then? I wonder what would they have
looked like on the TV screen, as they were picked up by the camera on the ancient film chains.

City and from what I heard the picture quality was fantastic and we are talking the late 30's
here !!!

I have seen that film. I viewed it at the MTR. It is fascinating and dissappointing at the same
time. There is no sound, but the picture quality is as good as any post-war kinescope.
Dissappointing, in that you would hope to see more---like, the pre-and post-broadcast stuff---
mainly, station ID (if such a thing existed).

Yes, it would be very cool to see what a broadcast day actually looked like in the late 40's---to see
the commercials, the station breaks, all the continuity between shows...The kinescope process
was not perfected until 1947, so films of TV broadcasts from before that are very rare. And at
that time, TV people didn't even think what they were doing was worth saving, much less the
"continuity" of a typical broadcast day.

Anyone know where we can view such material? There is a 1955 kinescope of a WLWT weather
forecast on Youtube, which shows a couple commercials, a station ID slide, then the 5-minute
forecast...That's the closest I've come to seeing a portion of a broadcast day from that era.

There's also a Youtube link to the final Howdy Doody episode---the original network broadcast. It
includes a mid-show net ID slide for station break, plus at the end of the show, the network
promo (just a couple slides) for the movie "International Velvet" that aired the following Sunday
night. "Eight eastern and pacific, 7 central, on NBC!" Good stuff!

Re: New York TV- Fall 1947

Are you sure it wasn't a promo for the series

"National Velvet"? In its first season (1960-61)

it aired on NBC Sundays at 8/7 Central, moving

to Mondays at the same hour for 1961-62.

And to the poster who commented on the 1946

schedule: CBS's programs would have been seen

only in New York. NBC had three stations (New

York, Philadelphia, and Schenectady; I'm not sure

if Washington was on the air yet). DuMont had

New York and Washington; ABC, to my knowledge,

had no television affiliates (New York's Channel 7

didn't go on until 1948), at least not hooked into

the coaxial cable. IIRC, ABC produced its shows

at either DuMont's facilities or at WRGB.

I do know that the second Joe Louis-Billy Conn fight

was televised that year by NBC, but since Washington

didn't have an NBC affiliate at the time of the fight,

WTTG carried it there. (ABC carried it on radio to


a record--for ABC, if not for radio--168 stations.)

Re: New York TV- Fall 1947

Here is a post I did a month ago for the "Bill Randle Show..On WEWS-TV 5.There's a link to the
only surviving audio of this show..March 4, 1956..

http://www.radio-info.com/smf/index....html#msg800143

Unfortunately nothing before or after the show..

Ah. Did not know it was the TV show. I sit corrected! BTW...Those promo slides I spoke of were in
color, too (makes sense, since Howdy Doody was in color).

And ABC, knowing it would sooner or later get into the TV business, rented out studios before
it's network flagship station -- WJZ NYC--went on the air in 1948, so its personnel could get the
feel for producing TV.

The mid-show I.D. on that Howdy Doody series finale was voiced by Bill Hanrahan, who within a
few years became the "Voice of NBC News." The promo for the upcoming National Velvet series
was V/O'd by the late Bob Waldrop - who one night in 1960 after the network's New York
flagship changed call letters from WRCA-TV to WNBC-TV did a sign-off that was recorded by one
Jerry Immel, and is now on J. Alan Wall's TV Signoffs site in a section dealing with audio-only
sign-offs of TV stations from the mid-to-late 1950's to early '60's.

As I said earlier, CBS didn't begin feeding programs to other stations until 1947. Per CBS's own
website, those cities were Philly (WPTZ 3 or WFIL-TV 6), Washington (WMAL-TV 7), and
Baltimore (WMAR-TV 2). The stations are my guesses as CBS doesn't mention the actual stations,
but those were on the air in '47 and not owned by NBC or Dumont. They don't call this the
beginning of their official network, however.

Per their website, WCAU-TV 10 Philly was the first "official" CBS-TV Network affiliate (other than
WCBS-TV of course) when it formally began in '48.

NBC had three stations (New York, Philadelphia, and Schenectady; I'm not sure if Washington
was on the air yet). DuMont had New York and Washington;

WNBW Ch. 4 Washington went on the air on 6/27/47.

ABC, to my knowledge, had no television affiliates (New York's Channel 7 didn't go on until
1948), at least not hooked into the coaxial cable. IIRC, ABC produced its shows at either
DuMont's facilities or at WRGB.

WJZ-TV Ch. 7 hit the air in August 1948. WENR-TV Ch. 7 Chicago went on about a month later.
Before that, what few ABC network shows existed were produced by Dumont (but used ABC
personnel, IIRC) and aired on their stations in NYC and Washington, plus WFIL-TV Philadelphia.

I do know that the second Joe Louis-Billy Conn fight was televised that year by NBC, but since
Washington didn't have an NBC affiliate at the time of the fight, WTTG carried it there. (ABC
carried it on radio to a record--for ABC, if not for radio--168 stations.)

For the record, this fight was on June 19, 1946 at Yankee Stadium. If it was broadcast in
Washington, it would have had to have been on WTTG.

Jerry Immel was also the source of the Bill Randle Show referenced above (or on the previous
page)

..There are also Cleveland and other areas' sign off clips on tvsign-offs.com courtesy of Mr. Immel

WJZ-TV Ch. 7 hit the air in August 1948. WENR-TV Ch. 7 Chicago went on about a month later.

...September 17, 1948, to be precise. WNBQ/5 followed on October 8, 1948, and from then to
1953, WENR-TV and WNBQ shared the same Merchandise Mart studios. When Balaban-Katz
Broadcasting sold the license and transmitter of WBKB-TV/4 to CBS in '53, those call letters were
changed to WBBM-TV and the station moved to Channel 2 and new studios on McClurg Court.
Balaban-Katz's parent company, United Paramount Theaters, had just merged with ABC and held
onto the studio site at the old Lake Theater, moving WENR-TV out of the Merchandise Mart over
to those studios and replacing the call letters WBKB on Channel 7....

I remember Jerry Immel doing WXIA's promos

in the late '70s. On the closing credits of the

Atlanta Emmy Awards they'd mention that he

was the announcer.

And to the poster who commented on the 1946 schedule: CBS's programs would have been seen
only in New York.

For the record, this fight was on June 19, 1946 at Yankee Stadium. If it was broadcast in
Washington, it would have had to have been on WTTG.

Which, if you'll notice, it was.

When Ted Mack's Amateur Hour debuted on DuMont, January 18, 1948, two of the four stations

that carried that first show were DuMont secondary affiliates: WFIL and WMAR. DuMont o&os

WABD (now WNYW) and WTTG also carried that show.

Milton Berle had the largest station lineup for 1948:

WBZ Boston

WRGB Schenectady

WNBC (or whatever it was then) New York

WPTZ Philadelphia

WBAL Baltimore

WNBW (WRC) Washington, DC

WTVR Richmond

the announcing staff at WEWS-TV 5 Cleveland in the mid 1960's..

I seriously doubt TV would've had an affect on radio before 1950 anyway since TV will still a
behemoth of a monster to figure out. WWII just simply bought RCA, GE and other manufacturers
time to figure it out without making fools of themselves because their primary focus was on
helping our fighting forces win the war (As it should've been!).

Would there have more shows sooner? Would there have been more channels and networks?
Perhaps and perhaps. But either way, the effect on radio wouldn't have been seriously felt
before 1950 anyway.

If Buffalo-to-Chicago was connected by coaxial cable to Boston-to-Richmond,

then that's probably true, but I thought the two cable links were joined early

in 1949 (in time for Harry Truman's inauguration, in fact).

No Young and the Restless on WAGA? I think that you may have mentioned that WAGA did not
carry Young and the Restless in the early years but refresh mine and everyone else's memory
when WAGA started carrying Young and the Restless. Also Secret Storm would be history by
early 1974.

Re: Retro: Atlanta Monday, September 17, 1973

WAGA picked up Y&R in July 1976. It aired

in Atlanta at 1 PM, meaning it aired in pattern

when it first went to an hour in February 1980

but not while it was still a half-hour. It has

aired at 12:30, first on WAGA, now on WGCL,

since CBS moved it there in mid-1981.

WAGA was not the only CBS affiliate to carry

Secret Storm instead of Y&R; WDBO (now WKMG)/6

Orlando did the same thing. After all, even though

Secret Storm was on the verge of cancellation in 1973,

it still had viewers who had followed it since 1954 at the

earliest; Y&R was still new.

As for the other two CBS affiliates in the North Georgia

Edition, WDEF/12 Chattanooga didn't start carrying Y&R

until around the same time WAGA did and it, too, aired it

at 1 PM (it has aired in pattern since 1980); WMAZ/13

Macon aired it at noon from the beginning and has always


aired it in pattern regardless of timeslot.

Re: Retro: Atlanta Monday, September 17, 1973

When Y&R first started as a half-hour at 12:00 ET and the

local hole was (only) at 1:00 ET, it's almost like an "alternate"

pattern for eastern time zone stations to delay Y&R until 1,

as apparently a number of them did, especially if they wanted

a noon newscast. The local news being a natural break, if you

will, between the game shows and the soaps.

In that (pre one-hour Y&R) era, did CBS ever do a second feed

of it at 1:00 ET just for this purpose, or were they still feeding

the next morning's Sunrise Surprise from 1-1:30?

And have we ever gotten an answer as to whether ABC now does

an alternate feed of AMC 12-1 ET, so CT stations can have

a noon news and not have to air the soap on a one-DB?

Re: Retro: Atlanta Monday, September 17, 1973

Castleman and Podrazik show CBS feeding "Sunrise

Semester" at 1 PM (noon starting in 1980), so apparently

there was no alternate 1 PM feed of "Y&R," although it

was logical for affiliates with noon newscasts to delay the

show an hour since, as you say, there was nothing in the

1-1:30 slot on CBS (until 1980). BTW, I don't know of any

affiliates that carried "Sunrise Semester" at 1 PM or noon.

And the Central Time Zone ABC affiliates that show "All

My Children" on a one-day delay at 11 AM are still doing so;

ABC has not supplied an alternate feed.

Re: RETRO PITTSBURGH TV- Monday September 21, 1970

That schedule brought back many memories. I was a preschooler at the time, and can certainly
remember getting up and

watching the Three Stooges on WTAE (which my mother always tried to stop, since she was
convinced that it would inspire

her kids to hit each other with hammers and poke each others eyes out). I would then watch
Captain Kangaroo, and then

flip over to Captain Jim on 11, and then the Lucy/Hillbillies back on 2. And we all watched
Adventuretime in the afternoons.

We were fortunate in that we lived high enough on a hill to get good signals out of Wheeling and
Steubenville (though not

Altoona/Johnstown). The Flintstones and Star Trek were two of my favorites on 9. And the Bozo
show mentioned on

53 was not locally produced. It was taped at Pat Robertson's CBN station in Portsmouth, VA and
sent out on tape.

(I remember that after the cartoons, Bozo would suddenly and without warning whip out his
Bible and begin preaching).

A guy in spiked read hair, white face with make up, and big shoes reading bible verses aloud.
Wow, just wow. So far no videos have showed up on YouTube.

It appears that WQTV 68 was essentially an affiliate of FNN at the time

Re: Retro: Louisville/Lexington/Cincinnati/Evansville Friday, January 13, 1961

WAVE/3/Louisville must have been airing a few ABC programs, in addition to NBC, prior to
WLKY's sign on in 1961. I notice "The Real McCoys" which I believe was an ABC show, listed in
the WAVE log for 10:30. I believe the Real McCoys aired at 7:30 or 8:00 eastern time on the
regular ABC schedule.

Re: Retro: Louisville/Lexington/Cincinnati/Evansville Friday, January 13, 1961

Both WAVE and WHAS carried a few ABC shows

(WAVE more than WHAS), but for some reason

the local edition of TV Guide never listed WAVE

as NBC/ABC or WHAS as CBS/ABC, although it

did with WLEX and WKYT.

Of course, today WHAS is the ABC affiliate in

Louisville.

Tim, I think Solid Gold aired the same episode on Saturday in most markets,

so the episode on 11 was probably the same as on 31.

What about the one on Channel 2 that aired at the exact same time?

Good stuff. Can I see a weekday of listings from this area, also in the 80's?

Yes, I think the one on channel 2 was probably the same as on channels 11 and 31

When did ABC start its 1984-85 Saturday morning schedule?

NBC and CBS launched their Sat am skeds the following week.

I believe the last episode of Walt Disney aired on CBS on September 24, 1983

did the Syracuse edition cover?

The Western NY edition was always something of an anomaly. There was a Buffalo Metro edition
that listed ONLY the stations that were on Adelphia (now TWC) in Buffalo - effectively, just the
Buffalo and a handful of Toronto stations. There was a Rochester edition that listed all of
Rochester, the Vs from Buffalo, the Vs and older Us (24, later 68) from Syracuse and CJOH-6 from
Deseronto.

And then there were those folks in that big swath of western NY outside metro Rochester and
beyond metro Buffalo. For them, there was the Western NY edition, distributed in places such as
Olean, Jamestown and Batavia. It listed all of Buffalo and Rochester, a handful of Toronto
stations, the major Erie stations (at least 12/24/35 if memory serves), and may also have had
18/36 Elmira, though the memory fails a bit now.

Toward the end of TV Guide's local editions, things were reshuffled a bit. The Buffalo edition was
explicitly branded as an Adelphia edition, complete with cable channel numbers. The Rochester
edition ended up, for a bit, branded as a Time Warner edition. (There was some test-marketing
going on over the years here, including a run with the "large-format" TV Guide many years
before it became a national reality.) And then, about a year before it all ended, Rochester was
merged with Western NY, which meant that we suddenly saw listings for Erie and Elmira here in
Rochester. At the same time, TVG stopped printing a channel listings page, which meant nobody
here had ANY clue what those mysterious "18" and "35" listings were for.

The rest of the lines? The Syracuse edition started to be sold somewhere around Geneva going
east, and covered the Syracuse and Utica markets. I think it also covered the Watertown market,
since the next edition going north and east was Vermont. (Due east, the Albany edition picked
up somewhere between Herkimer and Johnstown.)

Going south, the western NY edition crossed the PA line into the parts of the northern tier of PA
(Warren, Coudersport, etc) that are served by Buffalo TV. The New York/Pennsylvania edition
covered the Elmira and Binghamton markets, with listings for those markets as well as Syracuse,
Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and a handful of NYC stations.

I don't recall where NY/Penn gave way to Central Penn - the Scranton stations were listed in
both, for sure.

I think the last few years of the new Western NY edition also had listings for Johnstown/Altoona
(at least 3/6/10).

The last version of Penn-York (as I called it) as sold as far north as the St. Lawrence valley, which
included the Watertown and Kingston/Deseronto channels.

Neither of these jibe with my recollection. I'm quite certain the Johnstown/Altoona channels
weren't in the TVG we got up here in Rochester in the final years, which certainly appeared to be
an amalgamation of the former Rochester and WNY editions. There's some pretty intense terrain
between western NY and the Johnstown/Altoona market, and very little area, if any, where
reception would overlap between those stations and anything that would be listed in WNY.

As for the last version of Penn-York, I might not have bought any in the final days (though since I
have family in Binghamton, that was an edition with which I was very familiar over the years) - in
any event, I don't recall having ever seen Watertown listed there. That would have created quite
the ungainly edition, since the St. Lawrence Valley sees not only Watertown (7/16/50) and
Kingston/Deseronto (6/11), but also Ottawa and WPTZ/WCFE - a totally separate family of
stations from the Syracuse/Elmira/Bingo/SWB listings from the "classic" Penn-York edition.

Actually, WPTZ, WCFE and the Ottawa channels (save for CJOH, via Deseronto) were never listed
in Penn-York -- eastern St. Lawrence County, including Massena, was part of the Vermont TVG
territory, which makes sense, as the local Time Warner system carries WPTZ, CJOH and CBOT. On
the western side of the county (including Ogdensburg), the systems carry WSTM and CKWS
(instead of WPTZ and CBOT, respectively), and was in the Syracuse (later, Penn-York) TVG area.

Re:Macon Sunday, October 14, 1962

The 11am church service listed on 13WMAZ was, and still is, Mabel White Memorial Baptist
Church. Their first broadcast was on Sunday, October 5, 1958. It's one of the longest-running
weekly local church broadcasts in America. The 50th anniversary celebration aired a couple of
Sundays ago on October 5, 2008.

Was television station WLW-A still around then?

Oh, it was. Only it was WAII then.

WTTV, Channel 4, had a nice signal that could be received in parts of the Greater Cincinnati area.
They aired sports events that were not available on other stations. I remember even back then,
they had a tower well over 1,000 feet tall.

Their tower is about 1250 feet high (not sure about the exact HAAT) in Trafalgar, about 25 miles
due south of Indianapolis. Bloomington-licensed WCLJ/42 and WIPX/63 also transmit from
there, although I don't believe they are on the exact same site.
But WTTV couldn't (and doesn't) cover the north side of the Indy market very well. That's why
they lost their network affiliations (NBC to start, then ABC in 1956-57). They have to cover
Bloomington (their COL) as well as Indianapolis, so they bought then-WWKI/29 in Kokomo in the
'80s, and made it a satellite station (WTTK) to cover the north end of the market. I was able to
watch WTTK in NW-suburban Chicago fairly regularly back then, so it had a pretty decent signal
(and I had a pretty decent antenna. ;D ).

At least it was better than their original setup on Channel 10 - a fairly short tower (less than 100
feet high, IIRC) attached to their studio building behind the main Sarkes Tarzian plant on the
south side of Bloomington.

WTTV Channel 10 Facilities circa 1952 (judging by the cars parked outside).

WTTV had a very small studio!

More pictures from Indy-area stations

13 - Uncle Al (from WLWT Cincinnati)

This would have been via the ABC network feed of Uncle Al. The local Cincinnati version of Uncle
Al was at WCPO, not WLW-T.

The original listing just said "From Cincinnati." Since WLWI and WLWT were co-owned, I assumed
(apparently incorrectly) that this show, like Midwestern Hayride, came from WLWT.

All network references I made were from memory and a minimal amount of research. I had very
little info about ABC shows compared to those from CBS and NBC.

Even the CBS reference for the Cards-Steelers game is somewhat questionable since CBS didn't
sign a full TV deal with the NFL until 1962. Individual teams did sign deals with the networks,
however, and this may have been a local broadcast from WBBM-TV Chicago sent to other CBS
affiliates in the midwest, rather a nationwide CBS network game.
Even when it was owned by Crosley/AVCO and carried shows from WLW-T like Ruth Lyons and
Mid-

Western Hayride, WLW-I was an ABC-TV affiliate.

...I see from the source site that WANE/15 Ft. Wayne also carried the game, and they were (and
are still) a CBS affiliate, so your idea of a WBBM-produced game being sent out to regional CBS
affiliates is certainly plausible. On the other hand, I notice that two of the stations carrying the
game are also affiliated with other networks as well, CBS affiliate WCIA/3 Champaign didn't carry
the game (they carried the U of Illinois-College of the Pacific basketball game instead), Du Mont
had carried NFL games in the years before their folding, and this was less than a year before ABC
began its first prime-time NFL schedule. So, could it also be possible that the game was produced
by WGN-TV/9 or WBKB/7 in Chicago, and the CBS affiliations of the Indiana stations carrying the
game were merely coincidental to their picking it up?...

The Cards-Steelers game had to have been either the last or next-to-last game ever for the
Chicago Cardinals before they moved to St. Louis. Also, unless I missed it, I didn't see longtime
Indy kids show host Harlow Hickenlooper listed anywhere.

Seems 1958 was before Harlow's time in Indy. Check out http://harlowhickenlooper.com.

The Cardinals moved to St. Louis for the 1960 season, but 1958 was their last year at Comiskey
Park. They played at Soldier Field in 1959.

IIRC, Fryar did radio in Indy before joining Channel 6 in 1960. WIBC, I think.

I still miss the announcers who did their NFL team's games over their own newtworks before
everything went to the nation networks in 1968. The Cleveland Browns were seen here in
Cincinnati with Ken Coleman & Warren Lahr. On another channel here one season the Bears'
games were featured with Red Grange doing the announcing. Another year, that channel had the
Lions with Van Patrick. Apparently, Indiana, that did not have an NFL club at that time, got both
Chicago teams on TV.

Yes. Da Bears played at Wrigley until moving to Soldier Field in 1970. Wrigley Field was too small
by NFL standards (50,000 seats minimum - it held about 45,000 for football) and didn't have
lights yet, so Monday Night Football games there were impossible.

The Cards were, depending on which urban legend you believe, (1) kicked out of Comiskey Park
by new White Sox owner Bill Veeck, or (2) left on their own but needed to play in Chicago one
more season before moving to St. Louis.

I'm not old enough to remember the Cards in Chicago, but I became a Bear fan because they
were always on TV in Indy. Somebody there can elaborate/correct, but when the Colts arrived
from Baltimore, it probably took a long time to win the fans over since that was Bear country
previously. Almost everybody I grew up with was a Bear fan if they followed the NFL. Of course,
it didn't help that the Colts were horrible and owned by the inept/bizarre/senile Bob Irsay at the
time (Irsay in the mid '80s was like Al Davis today). ;D

At the time AVCO (Crosley) owned three NBC and

two ABC affiliates; the NBC ones were WLW-T

Cincinnati, WLW-C Columbus, and WLW-D Dayton.

The ABC ones were WLW-I and WLW-A Atlanta.

WLW-I (now WTHR) and WLW-A (now WXIA) are

NBC affiliates today, and WLW-D (now WDTN)

switched from ABC back to NBC four years ago.

Of course, all five stations have different ownership

now, and except for WLWT, different call letters

(WLW-C is WCMH).

As for the NFL games, I'm not sure exactly how

that worked. In North Carolina, Redskins games

came on all the CBS affiliates even in 1958, while

Colts (then in Baltimore) games were on the NBC ones.

We simply considered the 'Skins to be on CBS and

the Colts to be on NBC.

Re: Retro: Phoenix, AZ, Wednesday, October 1, 1952

Boxing was more than likely on CBS. Their Wednesday-

night telecasts were called "Blue Ribbon Bouts" (sponsored

by Pabst Blue Ribbon), and even more memorable than most

of the fights were Bill Nimmo's commercials as Bill the Bartender.

In 1955, ABC picked up the fights (still sponsored by Pabst) and

renamed the show the "Wednesday Night Fights."

Retro: Arizona - Sunday, October 4, 1954

Courtesy of Broadcasting 101.

This is the last full season of the Dumont network. All Arizona stations carried some ABC &
Dumont programming. KOOL-TV was ABC primary even though Channels 5 & 12 also carried a
few ABC shows. KIVA-TV Yuma was "officially" an independent since it didn't have a coax or
microwave link to the networks at the time.

Fooball games other than the Cards-Browns are my guesses. There were only three games that
day per ESPN's Pro Football Encyclopedia. All 3 are shown here. A live game shown in Phoenix
other than a network game on Dumont would probably have involved the Rams.

Channels 4/12 and 5 at 5:00pm and 5 and 12 at 6:00pm were live net.

As for 13 at 5:00pm, I think it's an error by KOPO-TV when they gave

their advance listings to whatever TV mag or newspaper this was in.

Ed would have been on at 5:00 two weeks prior, but at 6:00 both the
week before and here, as DST ended the last Sunday in September.

Sidebar: in 1954, DST did run--for the first time--until the last Sunday

in October in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

That would have been weird having prime time from 8:30-midnight for

a month in Boston!

1955 was the first year that a number of areas (New York, the rest of

the northeast, Chicago, other areas...but not Cali) extended DST until

the end of October.

the end of October.

Boy, the mish-mash of varying DST rules really screwed things up before the (more or less)
uniform rules were passed, didn't they? What I always found weird were situations in which
areas of adjacent time zones would at times in the fall been 2 hours apart, because the more
westerly area had already "fallen back" to standard time (or didn't observe DST at all) while the
easterly area had not. I first encountered this years ago in a book about the Civil Rights
movement...when all the brouhaha was going on with James Meredith's attempt to enroll at Ole
Miss, the officials in D.C. monitoring the unfolding events had to keep in mind that Oxford was at
that time of year 2 hours behind Washington, not 1.

In fact, I suppose theoretically it would have been possible for there to have been a situation in
which areas on the two coasts were temporarily 4 hours apart, where part of, say, California or
Oregon had gone off DST while New York had not! (I don't know if such a scenario ever
happened, but it was possible...)

Interestingly, I found that one of the best sources for sorting all this out are astrology wonks.
While I consider astrology to be so much hooey, the really serious advocates have to take these
oddball historical local and regional DST rules into account for determining the actual hour of
birth (in relation to the rest of the universe). I used to have an astrology reference book that
painstakingly detailed many of these oddities, but it must have been accidentally tossed (or
misplaced during a move) as I no longer have it.

Re: Retro: Arizona - Sunday, October 4, 1954

I was only 10 years old in 1954 but seem to remember Arizona (except the Navajo reservation)
did not use DST until a brief period in the 60's (with the possible exception of the WWII years
which I was too young to remember). DST didn't last in AZ because it stays light and hot too long
in summer evenings. This was before the wide adoption of refrigeration and mist systems. Now it
doesn't seem to matter.

It would be nice if AZ kept pace with the clock adjustments of the rest of the nation. It costs AZ
businesses plenty of aggravation and money and citizens plenty of aggravation to adjust their
electronic devices twice per year. We don't change our clocks but have to remember that
everyone else's do affecting things like network (both computer and media) times.

It's...true!

The end of September through the end of October from 1955-1961. New York

was on DST but Cali was not. NV mirrored CA. OR and WA were "check local

listings" as to DST or no, but if a city/area was then it ended in late September

(when you really should be back at school ;D).

Take this further back to the 1930s where Cali did not use DST at all (NY did),

so for the whole DST period there was a four-hour difference. Jack Benny did

his radio show in El Lay for the east on Sundays at 3:00pm PST in the summer

(instead of 4:00), and again at 7:00pm for the left coast.

Interestingly, I found that one of the best sources for sorting all this out are

astrology wonks...(snip)...I used to have an astrology reference book that

painstakingly detailed many of these oddities...

Time Changes In The USA by Doris Chase Doane perhaps?

1967. This was the first DST season under the Uniform Time Act of 1966.

If a state observed DST it was from the last Sunday in April to the last Sunday

in October. States could--as now--exempt themselves, and AZ did just that

starting in 1968.

AZ even "got out of" observing DST (as did the Cincy and Dayton areas in OH)

during parts of WWII. It was a "local use" exemption only, as anything federal-

related still operated under DST, or more correctly, "war time."

westerly area had already "fallen back" to standard time (or didn't observe DST at all) while the
easterly area had not. I first encountered this years ago in a book about the Civil Rights
movement...when all the brouhaha was going on with James Meredith's attempt to enroll at Ole
Miss, the officials in D.C. monitoring the unfolding events had to keep in mind that Oxford was at
that time of year 2 hours behind Washington, not 1.

In fact, I suppose theoretically it would have been possible for there to have been a situation in
which areas on the two coasts were temporarily 4 hours apart, where part of, say, California or
Oregon had gone off DST while New York had not! (I don't know if such a scenario ever
happened, but it was possible...)

This is going a bit off-topic, but even now, for three hours in the Spring, the Eastern TZ is four
hours ahead of the Pacific TZ, as Eastern has already gone to Daylight Saving Time, while Pacific
is still on Standard Time.

The Fall clock change poses another oddity, as for one hour, it is the same time in parts of Florida
as it is in parts of Oregon. The Florida Panhandle west of Tallahassee is on Central Time, while
northern Malheur County, Oregon is on Mountain Time. For the hour after the Central TZ returns
to Standard Time but before the Mountain TZ does, it is the same time in both locations.

Re: Retro: Arizona - Sunday, October 4, 1954

"Boxing From Eastern Parkway" had started on


DuMont in 1952 with Ted Husing, then Chris

Schenkel, as announcer. ABC picked up the

show in 1953, with Schenkel as announcer;

AFAIK that was the beginning of his career

at ABC (although he did college-football pregame

shows on CBS in the early '60s).

Yeah, that's the one! I first found that book many years ago, and have no idea whatever
happened to that copy.

Re: Retro: Atlanta/Chattanooga/Macon Saturday, October 20, 1973

This was the night of the "Saturday Night Massacre" (President Nixon's firing of Watergate
special prosecutor Archibald Cox, followed by resignations of Attorney General Eliot Richardson
and Deputy AG William B. Ruckelshaus. News reports on the Cox firing and subsequent
resignations interrupted Saturday night prime-time programming).

...more accurately, Nixon ordered Richardson to fire Cox, and Richardson resigned rather than
doing so; then Nixon ordered Ruckelshaus to fire Cox, and Ruckelshaus refused and resigned as
well. Finally, Nixon ordered Solicitor General (elevated to Acting Attorney General by the
resignations) Robert Bork to fire Cox, which Bork finally did...

ABC got a lot of flack for not carrying any coverage

of the "Saturday Night Massacre" as well--shows the

state of that network's news operation in those days.

Re: Retro: Atlanta/Chattanooga/Macon Saturday, October 20, 1973

I remember coming home from a Halloween party (a little early, yes) and finding out about the
SNM. That was when a lot of people really realized that Watergate could actually end Nixon's
presidency.
Also, "The Great Northfield, Minnesota Raid" was one of the best made-for-TV movies EVER!
Robert Duvall as Jesse James, Cliff Robertson as Cole Younger...awesome.

Finally, I didn't realize Neal Boortz had been working in Atlanta that long.

Did he do the Harpo/Lucy mirror routine with Fess Parker?

Younger posters may know it better--after this past Sunday

evening at 9/8 Central--as the Stewie/Adolf mirror routine.

TunnelVision, so you'll understand where my funnybone is right now. A farming or gardening
show, right?...

Don't know if Harpo did the mirror bit with Fess Parker.

He had enough trouble doing it with Lucy, since he was

on the opposite side of where he was when he and Groucho

first did the routine in "Duck Soup."

And "Spade And Hoe" was a farming show.

So, WMAZ didn't air Bonanza in color? I guess they didn't have the capibility to videotape in
color, or maybe they couldn't broadcast in color at all...

Re: Retro: Atlanta/Chattanooga/Macon Saturday, October 20, 1962

I got a conflict in the listings over whether the

Alabama-Tennessee game was in color; the regular

listing said it was, but the "Close-Up" said it wasn't.

I mention this because it aired live on CBS and WMAZ

and, possibly, in color. My guess is that WMAZ didn't


have the ability to videotape in color; none of the

stations in that edition did local programs in color

in 1962.

WQXI (WXIA) Ch. 11 Atlanta (ABC)

8:30 ABC Movie: "Go Ask Alice"

...Go Ask Alice was a book published in 1971, allegedly from the actual diary of an anonymous
teenage drug abuser who OD'd in the late '60s. The title is lifted from the Jefferson Airplane song
"White Rabbit," itself an exploration by Grace Slick of the supposed drug references in Lewis
Carroll's Alice books. It is considered to be a classic of American literature for teenagers, and is
still in print from Simon Pulse in both hardcover and paperback; although originally promoted as
nonfiction, the book's editor, Beatrice Sparks, indicated on its copyright form that it was a work
of fiction, and it is now listed that way by Simon Pulse itself. As well, a 1998 piece in the New
York Times Book Review indicates that Linda Glovach, author of Beauty Queen, was also a co-
forger of the "diary" in Go Ask Alice. The movie listed above is an adaptation of the "diary" that,
along with Duel, The Point and Brian's Song, is considered a high point in ABC's Movie of the
Week anthology series...

...by the way, what did WTVC usually run in the 4:30-5:30 slot that's occupied here by that ABC
Afterschool Special?...

Re: Retro: Atlanta/Chattanooga/Macon Wednesday, October 24, 1973

That's true. "Go Ask Alice" was one of the


most memorable ABC "Movie Of The Week"

presentations (my parenthetical remarks were

intended as a joke).

WTVC normally had "Green Acres" 4:30-5,

followed by "Bonanza" from 5-6.

I think Making A Living may have been the precursor, as I remember It's A Living in first-run
syndication in the 80's.

Re: Retro: Atlanta/Chattanooga/Macon Saturday, October 24, 1981

It was "It's A Living" when it debuted on ABC

in 1980. It changed back to the original title


when it went into first-run syndication, IIRC.
