40 Years Ago Today

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!

Weise was part of Bergner's, which later bought Carson's.

I always thought Weise was George Jefferson's wife. ;)

Fuzzy: I wish you found a late 1970's Bergner's TV commercial aired in the Peoiria TV market.

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

All of the aforementioned stores were bought by Saks Fifth Avenue a number of years ago. Don't know who's got them now.

Wow, it's been a while.

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. :')

Re: Nasty McEvil (boy, is that fun to say) - it's John Stephenson, evidently channeling Conried.

Interesting that they used a Tweety Bird stuffed animal at the beginning of this ad instead of a generic, non copyrighted plush toy.

I was watching the show as a lad in about this timeframe, and I have zero memory of the sunburst around the clock. Memory is so fickle.

I miss Osco's.

The same news desk seen here in 1983 was used in 1987 for some test runs of Fox 32 News, as seen here: https://youtu.be/C-leT1buYYs?t=1m27s

Comment posted in WMAQ Channel 5 - NewsCenter5 - "Linda Yu" (Bumper Promo, 1980) by David H on Thursday, November 24th, 2016 at 12:30pm CT

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.

VintageCanada: I think Fuzzy can confirm this, but I believe it was 2 60 minute 3/4" U-Matic tapes. I'm guessing the tape change took place during a commercial break and was done in under 2 minutes.

I think nobody's bothered to ask this yet: how many tapes were used to record this movie? It is possible some bits of the overall recording would've been cut in order to change tapes.
