Here's a Christmas themed commercial for Weise's Shoes. If that flower logo looks familiar, it's because Bergner's (formerly Weise's and Bergner-Weise) along with Carson's (Carson Piere Scott), Boston Store, Elder-Beerman, Herberger's, and Younker's are owned by BON-TON.

This aired on December 6, 1976!

Here's a Christmas themed commercial for Weise's Shoes.
This aired on local Rockford, IL TV on Monday, December 6th 1976! (not Chicago, but close enough)
That flower logo looks like the Bon-Ton logo used for Carson Pierrie Scott, Elder-Beerman, etc.!!! I might be crazy, though!! LOL LOL Comment posted by michiganfan on Monday, December 21st 2009 at 7:19pm.
Weise was part of Bergner's, which later bought Carson's. Comment posted by smctopia on Monday, December 21st 2009 at 9:38pm.

Fuzzy: I wish you found a late 1970's Bergner's TV commercial aired in the Peoiria TV market. Comment posted by Dth1971 on Saturday, November 26th 2011 at 10:15pm.
I remember when they opened the Louis Joliet Mall, Bergner's and Weise merged, and the anchor store they had was Bergner-Weise. Now it's just Carson's Comment posted by InkyAtari on Monday, December 5th 2011 at 9:11pm.
All of the aforementioned stores were bought by Saks Fifth Avenue a number of years ago. Don't know who's got them now. Comment posted by HUdson 3-2700 on Tuesday, December 6th 2011 at 4:10pm.

This version of "In the Midnight Hour" is by Richard Alden. The opening track is Mike Oldfield's "Taurus 1." I've watched this clip so many times that it's weird hearing these tracks in their entirety.
However, no idea still who did the cringeworthy "Mandy" cover. I guess even Shazam has its pride. :')
I remember an article written about her shortly after her debut with the headline "Yu Sends Me," that also remarked on how attractive she was. Between her and Deborah Norville, channel 5 seemed to specialize in beautiful anchors.
