Right about 1972-73; somehow my mind jumped ahead to 1972. However, the 1971-72
season was considered its fifth. Even though the show debuted in January 1968, the
1967-68 season was considered (at least by TV Guide) as a full season, so they're
actually
counting 1967-1972: five years. I guess it makes it easier than saying that "Laugh-In"
had
been on three and a half years in September 1971.

I would, however, argue that "Laugh-In" seemed dated by 1971; so much of it still
smacked
of the '60s. It and "Gunsmoke" had been virtually neck-and-neck up to that point, but in
the
1971-72 season "Gunsmoke" finished fourth for the season, while "Laugh-In" finished

22nd. And
in '72, when ABC added "The Rookies" on Mondays at 8/7, "Gunsmoke" finished tied
with Mary Tyler
Moore for seventh, "The Rookies" finished 23rd, tied with the ABC Sunday Night Movie,
and "Laugh-In"
finished out of the top 30.

One thing was certain: Lorne Michaels was a writer on "Laugh-In" and he had definite
ideas about
what he did and did not want to do on the comedy show he'd soon be creating for NBC.
Compare
"Laugh-In" and "Saturday Night Live" and see what I mean.

Re: Retro: Atlanta/Chattanooga/Macon Monday, September 13, 1971
Under the listings for WAGA/Ch. 5 in Atlanta it says,

"11 PM News (Chuck Scarborough)"

Same Chuck Scarborough who's been anchoring WNBC-TV's evening news in New
York City (and filling in from time to time on the NBC network's newscasts) since the
mid-70s?

Re: Retro: Atlanta/Chattanooga/Macon Monday, September 13, 1971

The same, just as Judy Woodruff is the same one who went from
WAGA to national fame. When I lived in WAGA's coverage area in
the mid-'70s Chuck Moore and Jim Axel were the station's main anchors.

Which of these stations, if any, would have aired the third popular syndicated show of
this vein from that era, Soul Train? I've heard of cases of one station airing all three
programs - if not fully back-to-back, then at least in close proximity.

I'm pretty certain it didn't air on a Manitoba or Saskatchewan channel, but I'll check the
listings again for the ND stations and see if it aired...

For what it's worth Soul Train didn't air in Seattle either, so I never saw it here in
Vancouver, BC.

And after checking the listings, the Soul Train didn't stop in Fargo either...

CBC Maritimes listings for the same day.

The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Hour was replaced on September 6 by The Bugs Bunny
Show (half-hour). I think the baseball game that day (September 13) overran and wiped
out the broadcast of Bugs Bunny in the Maritimes. If I remember rightly.

Re: Retro: Boston Sunday April 23, 1967
There may be a reason why the old WNAC-7 was not listed as carrying the NBA playoff
game from the network on April 23rd, 1967: It was 5th game of the Finals (between the
Philadelphia 76ers and the then-San Francisco Warriors), and as an "if necessary"
game, the station may have submitted a TV listing for that date assuming there would be
no playoff game that day.

According to the sports section of that day's Boston Globe, WNAC indeed did carry that
game. The TV supplement of that same newspaper does not list the game as being
carried by WNAC.

The way the Herald had it listed had all the other ABC affiliates in New England (WNHC,
WTEV, WMTW, WHYN, WMUR and others) running the game. Neither the game listing
or WNAC's movie listing had anything about "if necessary" at all.

As for WHDH and the Red Sox game, according to the TV Guide week of May 20-26,
1967 games from Fenway were broadcast in color. It could just have been an error on
the Herald's part, which would be strange since the Herald owned WHDH.

Re: Retro: Boston Sunday April 23, 1967

It's possible that WNAC-7 submitted a couple of weeks ahead of time a TV listing with
the movie because they didn't know there would be an NBA Finals game that day.

"Last year" referring to the final game of that season on November 29, 1986.

Also, for the record, Notre Dame won the 1987 matchup, 26 to 15.

Re: Retro: Portland, OR, Sat. October 24th, 1987
First of all, Town Hal should be Town Hall, New Literacey is New Literacy, and New
Archives is New Archies. Sometimes going fast with the keys causes this...

TV Guide's 2AM listings were normal. What was interesting is that listings on a day's
listing end at 5AM in the old TVG, but this time it was 4:30, 5AM, 5:30, and then back to
5AM on the Sunday page as normal. Late start?

Re: Retro: Portland, OR, Sat. October 24th, 1987

"Shouldn't this be "Town Hall"? If not, apparently, Hal was off that week."
Yup, with Jack Faust as moderator. Except KATU always did "Town Hall" live on Sunday
nights, not Saturday. Perhaps this was actually the previous week's programme, rerun
via tape. (*pleading* Oh Craig Adams, why aren't you enrolled on this forum?)

5:30 Good Morning Tri-States
noon Farm Report
I take it that in 1987, morning show man Red Holland and farm director Gene Ragan
were still on their respective thrones? From what I understand, those two men basically
personified South Alabama television for about 40 or so years, especially Holland, with
his "good ole boy" mannerisms and fishing expeditions.

Re: Retro: Riverside Co, California Mon, Sept 18, 1967

Great listing. A few observations:

I was a Baby-Boomer era kid in the late 50's and early 60's, watching Sheriff John,
Skipper Frank, Engineer Bill, Tom Hatten, and so on. That was great kids' television.

I used to wonder as I got older if the next generation of kids would be watching these
same shows, or if they would come up with new programming.

By the time I was a teen, I had stopped watching cartoons, and most of the shows I
watched were gone.

They weren't replaced, and the genre was not improved on.

I think later generations of kids missed out on something.

Yes, it was the 60's Batman show. I was a senior in high school at the time and
remember discussing it with my friends - consensus was that it was "dumb" but now
we'd be the first ones to buy it if it ever came out on DVD.

As for Popeye, one station had the Fleischer package and the other had the King
Features cartoons from the 60s (IIRC WLVI had the newer cartoons).

"As for Popeye, one station had the Fleischer package and the other had the King
Features cartoons from the 60s (IIRC WLVI had the newer cartoons)."

Actually 56 WLVI had the Theatrical Paramount and Fleisher Popeye cartoons
syndicated by AAP. 38 WSBK had the 60's King Features episodes but were about to
drop them in 1984 (I thought 38 stopped running Popeye in 1981). The King Features
episodes moved to 20 WXNE. Eventually 56 WLVI only had the Fleisher episodes
colorized by 1989 while 25 which was WFXT by then had both the Paramount and King
Features episodes.

As for Bugs Bunny - WLVI had the pre 48 color Looney Toons and Merrie Melodies
including all the pre 48 Bugs Bunny episodes. WSBK had the Post 48 Bugs Bunny and
other Warner Brothers cartoons and the pre 41 colorized Porky Pig cartoons. These all
moved to 26 WXNE in 1986.

Re: Retro: Maine (Wednesday, May 23, 1984)
Actually by 89-90 WLVI had the King Features Popeye package (with Hoyt Curtin's
rendition of the Popeye theme from the 78-82 Hanna-Barbera version). WLVI didn't run
the H-B version, which is ironic as they had almost every other H-B property at the time
(Flintstones, World Of Super Adventure i.e. Space Ghost, Fun World i.e. Dastardly and
Muttley, Josie and the Pussycats, Greatest Bible Stories, and maybe even Scooby-Doo).
Oh yeah, WLVI also carried from Krazy Kat, Beetle Bailey and Snuffy Smith from King
Features (but not Cool McCool or The Beatles).
&quot;That&#039;s a heck of a place to put a tree - in the middle of a forest!&quot;
-Peter Potamus, 1966

I didn't think CHSJ ever had a news schedule like that. I wonder if it was short-lived.

Retro Cleveland/Akron: Tuesday, February 20, 1990


WAKC Channel 23 (ABC)
5:00p Home Shanna Reed, Marilyn McCoo
Boy, WAKC is an odd station... Proving my point: This is an odd time to air what was
considered a daytime show. Couldn't they just bury it in the overnight or even the early
morning hours?
Kind of reminds me of the fact that in the mid '90s, WEWS aired Live with Regis and
Kathie Lee at 11AM and aired Caryl & Marilyn: Real Friends late at night. I would
imagine they only did that because of The Morning Exchange, which ran from 9AM to
11AM.

Some ABC affiliates (WPVI in Philadelphia, for example) aired a half-hour of the hourlong "Home" program from Woody Fraser Productions - and I believe they also done so
for its successor, "Caryl and Marilyn: Real Friends."
Home ran only for 30 minutes during its infancy. Reruns of "Growing Pains" filled the
hour nationally, so this appears to be in sequence from the network.

As far as I know, Mount Vernon is part of the Paducah / Cape Girardeau television
market.

Looks like KSDK pre-empted Santa Barbara in the 2:30 pm timeslot and aired Sale Of

Re: Retro: Northern Alabama Saturday, September 24, 1977
WBRC Ch. 6 Birmingham (ABC)

1:30 AM American Bandstand (delay from 11:30 AM)

How many other stations delayed American Bandstand to 1:30 AM in the morning? First
time I've seen American Bandstand being on late at night which might mean that it
wasn't that popular in Alabama.

Re: Retro: Northern Alabama Saturday, September 24, 1977
if i remember, WBRC often didn't clear some of the more controversial stuff that ABC ran
in the 1960-70s. in a way, it reminds me of a skit on Laugh in where someone at the end
said: "In Birmingham, they are showing a test pattern right now."

I've never figured out what was so controversial about "American
Bandstand," because I've always thought Dick Clark did everything
he could to keep it family-friendly. Nevertheless, even airing it at

1:30 AM is better than what WFAA did, which is not carry it at all.

From the mid-to-late 1970s onward, some stations bumped Bandstand for various
reasons -- the only chance I got to see it was during the prime-time anniversary specials,
as my local stations, WJRT in Flint and, after the move, WTSP in Tampa Bay, didn't carry
Bandstand.

Re: Retro: Northern Alabama Saturday, September 24, 1977

WBRC used to be absolutely notrious for delaying popular network programming into
less than desirable time-slots. Some of their more egregious preemptions have been
noted here. Having lived in Birmingham all my life, the main reasons were, they were the
#1 station in north Alabama, plus it enabled them to sell more local advertising during the
hours when they were watched the most.

You get the feeling that WSAZ loved Mary Hartman?

-crainbebo
These were the whole week's episodes of Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman and these were
probably reruns since the 1977-1978 season was renamed "Forever Fernwood".

Re: Retro: West Virginia Saturday, September 24, 1977
Being an NBC affiliate, Ch. 3 would not have been allowed
to delay Johnny Carson to midnight (only Minneapolis and
Birmingham were allowed to delay him at all, and in the case
of the Twin Cities that was after the switch to what is now
KARE). Ch. 3 carried Carson and Tom Snyder's "Tomorrow" show,
and "The Midnight Special" on Friday. That means the earliest
"MH2" could have gotten on would have been 2 AM (2:30 AM
Friday night/Saturday morning). And I suppose, too, it filled a
gap, since the station stayed on all night on Saturdays.

Another NBC affiliate, WIS Columbia, SC, also taped "MH2" and
played back (I think) three episodes after "Saturday Night Live"
and two on Sunday nights.

The ABC affiliate in Richmond, WXEX (now WRIC), used to do


something similar with "Dark Shadows." They carried David Frost
at 4 PM, taped the five episodes of "Dark Shadows" for the week,
and aired them five in a row on Sunday afternoons.

I remember watching Operation Petticoat on Saturday afternoons on WTRF.

Re: Retro: Northeast Kentucky Mon, Sept 27, 1999
Interesting to see an early digital cable lineup on here. I think this is the first one of those
I've seen. I noticed there's quite a few channels missing, such as what was then known
as Noggin, and Nick GaS. Was InterMedia Lexington an independent cable operator at
the time, or a competitor? If they were independent, I doubt they're still around. What is
the cable provider there now?

WVAH 11-Fox/UPN
8:00 Get Real (as listed, what's the story here?)

UPN special, maybe?

A quick check on Wikipedia lists it as a Fox program, but it's awful funny that Fox 11 in
Charleston has it listed, but the Cincy, Louisville, and Lexington stations are running a
That 70s Show doubleheader, which leads me to wonder it there's a typo here and Fox
11 actually ran the That 70s Show doubleheader instead...

Bonus info, there was an ad for InterMedia Lexington in that week's TV Book, so here's
a look at the September 1999 cable selection in Lexington:

Analog
2 WKYT-CBS
Soon after this WKYT moved to Channel 9 on cable. WKYT had issues being on
Channel 2 due to all the old coax and bad splits around town. Low band VHF channels
were full of noise so WKYT had issues while the other broadcast channels were on high
band VHF that were noise free or less noisy so they requested to move.

In case you were wondering, Man in a Suitcase was another of those spy thriller series
from the mid 1960s. Here's an excerpt from the show...

If memory serves me right, the listing at 10:30 a.m. on channel 34 was called "El Rancho
Del Pajaro Amarillio," which means "The Yellow Woodpecker Ranch." It was a children's
serial from Brazil, which was produced by the Globo TV network.

This was the last day of the baseball season, and I *think* NBC had a baseball game
also, since there was no football.

Re: Retro: Atlanta Sunday, October 3, 1982

How come since there was a NFL strike in 1982 that the Falcons football coach possibly
talking about the strike and NFL '82 were still on the air?

Don't know if NBC carried a baseball game on that Sunday, although I think they did for
other weeks during the early part of the NFL strike(as theyalso did in 1987)
For the record, ABC had the rights in those days to any lastday of the baseball season
contests where a division title was on the line(as well as any Monday tiebreaker games).
The game on Oct. 3, 1982, involved the Milwaukee Brewers and Baltimore Orioles, who,
by good fortune, just happened to be tied for first place and playing each other on the
last day.
The Brewers won the game 10-2, with the team of Keith Jackson, Bob Uecker and
Howard Cosell announcing.

Although this is not in the listings, I believe this was the night when the first all night
network newscast CBS News Nightwatch debuted and according to past listings on the
forum WAGA aired the show.

I call shenanigans on that installment of "SNL" - there were two musical guests? Also,
Bronson Pinchot was legitimately famous enough at the time to host "SNL"?

Re: Retro: Michigan/Cleveland/Toledo Fri, Oct 1, 1954
Some notes about the Cleveland listings..

11:15 PM
3 Custom Inn-Glenn Rowell

Glenn had been half of the "Gene and Glenn" Radio comedy team with Gene CarrollWho hosted Uncle Jake's House (which by this time may have been on it's last legs) and
The Giant Tiger Amateur Hour [Later The Gene Carroll Show] Both on WEWS)

5:50
5 Dinner Platter

Bob Dale was the host here-About 2 years later he would pull up stakes and head to
San Diego, where he became an Icon after a 40 year career there..

12:30
8 Rena and Bob

This would be Rena and Bob Ledyard, who hosted what amounted to a "garage sale on
tv" Rena would scour Cleveland neighborhoods for items to be shown on TV and sold to
the viewing public..The Show was also known as "Bargain Bar"..If this site had the ability
to post pictures, I could show a picture of the Ledyards on set..The show was
surprisingly popular, as WXEL, being the third and last UHF to sign on, had to be more
creative with daytime programming at first..

7:15
8 Gray Drug News Parade

Bob Lang and Cleveland Indians announcer Jimmy Dudley hosted..

(along with DuMont in the early years) and hired a mobile unit and crew from NBC to
shoot the games. Given that WXEL was not an NBC affiliate, and that some TV listings
for Boston I have seen indicated multiple-stations carrying the World Series as late as
1955, I thought that perhaps this multi-network arrangement lasted well into the 1950's.

A brief blurb in that week's issue implied that NBC had the rights that year...not sure
what the story is there...

Re: Retro: Michigan/Cleveland/Toledo Fri, Oct 1, 1954

Based on Cleveland Plain Dealer Archive stories of the period, WXEL-9 was the local
station for the Indians that season..WNBK and WXEL both carried the games, using the
NBC-TV announcers..Same with Mutual Radio, where Cleveland affiliate WHK and

Indians Flagship WERE carried the games..

Re: Really Retro: Birmingham, Thursday Evening 10/16/52 and Friday Daytime 10/17/52
Wow! I'd like to see some more of these from the '50s.

"Mike And..." is Mike Wallace and his then-wife, Buff Cobb,


an actress and niece to the humorist Irvin S. Cobb. She was
a panelist on "Masquerade Party" from 1953-55, essentially playing
the role Betsy Palmer did on "I've Got A Secret," seemingly unable

to come up with the most obvious identifications.

"Wheel Of Fortune" replaced "Arthur Godfrey Time" on Fridays (Arthur


was usually at his Virginia farm and did the Friday show on radio only).
It bore no resemblance to the show that made Pat Sajak and Vanna White
famous; instead, people who had done some good deed spun a wheel which
landed on a cash amount ($30-$1000), and they had to answer a set number
of questions to win the money. The host of the show was Todd Russell, so I
wonder if "Ted Russell" was a typo or a local Birmingham personality.

...actually, I recall Palmer getting more "secrets" than Bess Myerson or Faye Emerson
ever did...

Could be, but one time they brought out a man with a
live squirrel on his head; Garry Moore was to ignore the
squirrel while the man "whispered his secret": "I have a
live squirrel on my head." Palmer missed, and after the
show Gil Fates asked her how she could have missed something
so obvious. It was so obvious, she said, that she thought the
producers were trying to put one over on her. The whole spot
was premised on the fact that Palmer had difficulty guessing secrets,
and that she couldn't possibly miss something so obvious.

But since neither I nor anyone else ever kept score as to how many
secrets each panelist guessed, I won't say you're wrong.

One of the dynamics of pairing Buff Cobb and Ilka Chase on "Masquerade
Party" was the contrast of the seeming bimbo (Cobb) and the sophisticated
society lady (Chase); that might have been behind the pairing of Palmer and
Emerson (and later Myerson) on "Secret."

Another form of pairing was good cop/bad cop (Arlene Francis/Dorothy Kilgallen
on "What's My Line?" or Bill Cullen/Henry Morgan on "Secret." Kitty Carlisle/Peggy
Cass on "To Tell The Truth" would be another example; Cass, though, was as good a
game player as Kilgallen and seldom failed to identify the truth-teller.).

One side note, sort of off-topic: before he died, Henry Morgan published his
autobiography
and was uncomplimentary of Steve Allen, who replaced Garry Moore as host of "Secret"
in 1964; he said that Moore was willing to sit back and let the panel and contestants
have
the spotlight; Allen always seemed to be competing with them for laughs. Palmer, when
she
read this, came forward and agreed that Moore was the better host (and though a lot of
you
will disagree with me, I think Moore was better than Bud Collyer on "To Tell The Truth").

...well, although Garry Moore did have comedy variety shows on both radio (with Jimmy
Durante) and TV, Moore (like Dave Garroway, Ed Sullivan and Arthur Godfrey) was
always more of a broadcaster than an entertainer per se. Collyer and Steve Allen were
established as performing entertainers before their game show careers. Allen was also
infamous for having one of the most overstuffed egos in Hollywood; Jack Paar wrote in
his memoir P.S. Jack Paar, "I am very fond of Steve [Allen], but not nearly as much as
Steve is" ;D ...

Note I have no idea why each of the three Dayton stations is affiliated with all three
networks. If anyone has an answer please post it. Id love to know why.
I believe the first network listed was their primary affiliate, and they cleared shows that
the other stations didn't carry.

Also, wasn't WKTR an ABC affiliate at one point in the late-1960s, before closing down?
And if so, did the other three stations maintain affiliation of some sort with ABC? (It
would reopen as pubcaster WOET in 1972, now WPTD.)

Charlotte was the same way until the fall of 1967.
WBTV was primary CBS; WSOC, NBC; WCCB, ABC,
but each took shows from the other networks. As
I understand it, NBC got fed up with WSOC's pre-emptions
of network shows, and in the fall of '67 WBTV became fulltime
CBS; WSOC, NBC; WCCB, ABC. That lasted until July 1978,
when WSOC switched to ABC; WCCB went independent (then Fox
in 1986), and Ted Turner's WRET (now Belo's WCNC) became the
NBC affiliate.

Was the Southern Ohio edition still doing different colored bullets for each market at the
time? In the late-50s listings from the edition I've posted, the edition used black bullets
for Cincy, white for Columbus, and grey striped for Dayton...

I thought that the old WLWD-2 was NBC primary, WHIO-7 CBS primary, and some ABC
shows were split between the two.

There may have been a few CBS shows on WLWD and a few NBC shows on WHIO to
add to the confusion.

Yep, and as we noted many times across these threads, there were similar situations in
other markets like Birmingham, Toledo, and Raleigh-Durham, where the UHF start-up
got the leftover network programs from the established stations until the late '60/early
'70s where the stations were forced to affiliate with a single network.

Re: Retro: Spokane, WA - Thursday, October 10, 2002
Was CNN Headline News still syndicated to small-market stations? I know it was as late
as mid-1996, as KIMA 29 Yakima was running CNN at Noon.

The 12PM show might be Antiques Roadshow (or the UK version) but I'm not sure why it
would be a half-hour...
I don't even remember Rob Nelson. Must have been very short-lived. I do remember

Caroline Rhea, which was supposed to imitate Rosie O'Donnell, but failed after one
season.
Also-Maury on KXLY, a Big 3 station? By now, Maury had turned into "whose your
daddy" and "infidelity" stuff, and was being dropped on big 3 stations like flies (well,
maybe not KDNL...)

-crainbebo

Antiques Roadshow crossed my mind, too, but the half-hour timeslot is what threw me
off its trail.

Maury on KXLY is definitely odd, but the stations in Spokane were a little behind the
times for several years. All of the "big three" stations were even still showing sitcom
reruns during access in 2002!

As for The Rob Nelson Show, I don't remember it, either.

A few more notes

Shipmates on KSKN-was about people dating in a cruise ship.


The Other Half I know had Dick Clark in it. Most affiliates were NBC, but here in Seattle
it was aired on our Fox station KCPQ.

-crainbebo

Yeah, I remember The Other Half. It was supposed to be the "male" version of The View,
and was hosted by Clark, Mario Lopez, Danny Bonaduce and someone else. I don't
remember Shipmates, though. It's interesting when you go through old listings to realize
how many disposable, forgettable shows come and go over the years.

Looks like 2 and 22 shared top-tiered syndicated programming as much as they did local
news...

Yeah. They still do, in fact. 22 currently repeats Dr. Phil at 6 and The Dr. Oz Show at 7.
As much as I hate duopolies, this one works well. KREM saved KSKN from Home
Shopping Network obscurity.

Note: WREC Channel 3 would be rebranded WREG-TV two years later when the station
was sold to the New York Times. It remains WREG to this day. You can also see Apollo
11 coverage seeping into the schedule. All three channels show virtually wall to wall
coverage on the Sunday and Monday grids. I think WHBQ may have preempted an ABC

show for "The Little Rascals" at 10am. 13 showed Little Rascals for years.

Re: RETRO: MEMPHIS, TN, SATURDAY, JULY 19, 1969
I noticed WHBQ had "American Bandstand" on its schedule during this time. However, I
also noticed that both "Wrestling" and "Talent Time" replaced "Wide World of Sports" so
it appears this might have spurred its decision to move the former to 11AM down the line
in the future.

Re: RETRO: MEMPHIS, TN, SATURDAY, JULY 19, 1969
If my memory serves me correct, the Apollo coverage on July 19th at 12 Noon CDT (1
P.M. EDT) was to show a live telecast from the command module as it and it's attached
lunar module were closing in on the moon; while the 3 P.M. CDT/4 EDT coverage was
when the spacecraft came out from the far side of the moon; it's service module rocket
engine having fired to slow it down to place it in orbit around the moon ahead of the next
day's moon landing.

BTW, ABC, CBS, and NBC were all on the air for 30 straight hours (12 Noon EDT July
20th-6 P.M. EDT July 21st) during the landing. The networks believed that to go back to
regular programming while the lunar module containing Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin
were on the moon, even when the two were asleep, was the TV news equivalent to
blasphemy.

I'm NOT going to buy TVGs for $11.99 + shipping. Not happening!) or in the case of
Seattle/Portland/BC stuff, either off Seattle Times microfilm from the library, which I print

Coleman had just left Cleveland shortly before this, where he had called Browns and
Indians games and anchored the sports for about 13 years..Frank Glieber replaced him
as Browns TV Voice and WJW-TV 8 sports director/Anchor..

Re: Retro: Eastern New England - Saturday July 2, 1966
In fact, I believe that the reason WTEV-6 was part of the New York Mets' network back
then was that it's signal (especially before the Tiverton tower was built in 1967) didn't
reach Boston, and thus, didn't penetrate Boston Red Sox "territory".

In fact, I believe that neither WJAR-10 nor WPRO/WPRI-12 could have picked-up local
New York broadcasts of the Mets (or Yankees) because their signals reached Boston.

Major League Baseball has long had a rule that no TV station within a certain distance
(50 miles?) of a major league city could carry local telecasts of a team whose ballpark is
located outside that radius.

WTEV was outside the 50-mile radius; WJAR and WPRO/WPRI weren't.

From 1954 through 1971, and again over the last few years, there have been MLB
teams in Baltimore and Washington (which are closer than 50 miles to each other); I
believe the rule is that for any local over-the-air telecasts, no Baltimore station can carry
Washington Nationals games, nor any D.C. station could carry Baltimore Orioles
telecasts.

Re: Retro: Eastern New England - Saturday July 2, 1966
The Boston Red Sox very rarely played on Saturday nights in those days, so "Secret
Agent" and "Face Is Familiar" were normally seen on the old WHDH-5. They were
bumped to the then-WIHS-38 for that night (and maybe one other time during the 1966
season).

Additionally, I thought that by 1966, all of the Red Sox home telecasts on WHDH (and
most of the away games) were in color. Given that WGN-9 Chicago's color mobile unit
was used not just for their own coverage of White Sox and Cubs home games, but also
for the video feed "backhauled" to the visiting team's home city), I suspect this game was
in color.

1967 was the first year that Channel 5 WHDH telecast Red Sox home games in color,
using RCA's TK43 color cameras. Here's a link to an article in RCA's Broadcast News
magazine from August 1967 discussing the WHDH's remote trucks, and color camera
setup. The article is on Page 26 :http://www.americanradiohistory.com/...ws/RCA-135.pdf

Thanks for that link - I loved the color pictures from the old WHDH studios, especially the
one of Jack Hynes doing the news. It shows how far news sets and production has come
in 45 years. The original WHDH doesn't get the respect it deserves for putting out a
quality product despite all the behind-the-scenes turmoil.

And by the way, WIHS-TV was owned and operated by the Archdiocese of Boston,
which ran a closed circuit TV system for its schools and parishes. It has blossomed into
a global network called "Catholic TV." Can you believe it? What goes around comes
around.

But how many homes in the Boston market actually had sets that could pick up UHF?

I know that my grandparents had a 1963 RCA color console that had UHF. When I was
about 5 we lived a few blocks away and my brother and I used to go over to watch
"Kimba the White Lion" and "Speed Racer" on channel 56 in color (my parents only had
a B&W TV with a slide UHF tuner at the time).

The station received several "National News Film Station of The Year" awards from the
National Press Photographers' Association, among other awards.

As WHDH and later as WCVB, Boston's Channel 5 has long been known for having one
of the country's best local TV news departments. In fact, Channel 5 (both as WHDH and

as WCVB) and WBZ-4 have for generations been cited as two of the best local TV
station news departments in the country.

WXIA Ch. 11 Atlanta (ABC)

8 PM Saturday Night Live With Howard Cosell


...this was The Bay City Rollers' second time on Cosell's show. The first, on the
September 20th premiere, was sattelited from a studio at London Weekend Television
(as I recall, it was on the same set used for SuperSonic, which had premiered on ITV
that same month). For this appearance, the Rollers actually travelled to the Ed Sullivan
Theater and performed "Saturday Night" on the same stage The Beatles made their first
American performance over CBS' The Ed Sullivan Show over eleven years earlier.
"Saturday Night" barely managed to hit the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 during the
Cosell show's lifetime ;D ...

At the time the Rollers were being touted as the group that was going
to make the world forget the Beatles, so Cosell may have figured he'd
get the kind of ratings Sullivan got when he had the Beatles on in 1964.
As we know, the Rollers soon faded back into obscurity and Cosell didn't
get the big ratings (in fact his show was canceled after only 16 weeks).

...although the band actually landed The Bay City Rollers Show, their own Saturday

three or four years after its official cancellation without bothering to notify either the

Apparently, the Kroffts aren't fans of TV Guide, as past listings indicated here had
repeats of The Bay City Rollers Show at 7:30AM ET / 6:30AM elsewhere. I would think
they would buy a TV Guide to check up on what they would say about their other series
during this period (including Donnie & Marie, Barbara Mandrell and, of course, Pink
Lady).

Maybe the Post had different editions for various parts of the circulation area? My copy
also included a list of DC radio stations...

Er . . . WXTV was (and is) Channel 41, based out of Paterson, NJ. They were
retransmitting that station on Channel 56 in the nation's capital?

Don't know the exact history, though that station was around to at least 1982, when
WNVC (then WIAH) signed on channel 56. Don't know if SIN relocated to another
channel, or if it's related to the low-powered Telefutura station WMDO-LD (which signed
on in 1988 and carried Univision until 2005).

Re: RETRO: MID-SOUTH, OCT. 4TH, 1976
I'm guessing this came out of the Memphis Commercial Appeal "Mid-South" TV tab?
They had a section in the back which featured an expanded area of listings for the likes
of Paducah/Cape Girardeau, Jackson, etc.

Couple of observations -- WMC 5 picking up Dinah! was only the beginning of their
notorious dismantling of NBC daytime.

Second, I'd forgotten how WLBT 3 in Jackson did their own share of preemptions in the
'70s. The 9:00 program was the local institution Coffee With Judy, hosted by Judy Moon
(formerly a "weather girl"), plus the "Romper Room"-styled Our Playmates. The latter
was an award-winning show - created very soon after the station passed into "interim"
hands in 1971.

I was living in Tupelo in 1976, so the afternoon schedules really took me back. Brady
Bunch, back to back, on 5 and 9 respectively. Those were the days..... : : :

--Russell

Thanks for the info about Judy and Playmates, Russell W. I lived in Northeast, MS then
and could pick up all the Memphis stations, Tupelo, and Florence, AL. But we couldn't
get the central MS stations. I've always been fascinated by local programming. When I
was a kid, I always wanted people to bring me back TV Guides from their travels. I was a
very odd kid, but I got a kick out of knowing what other people got to see, and wondering
what their locally produced shows were like.

Re: RETRO: MID-SOUTH, OCT. 4TH, 1976
I noticed some fairly strange things here.

Only two of the Jackson, Mississippi stations were listed, and one of those was a U,
WAPT. The odd man out here was CBS affil WJTV, on channel 12. Wonder what the
CA's thinking was on that?

Take these things into consideration: 1) The CA's circulation reach at the time was
probably the northern third of the state of Mississippi, down to about Greenville,
Greenwood, and maybe as far as Columbus. Surely it didn't go down as far as, say,
Vicksburg?

This becomes important because 2) UHF signals were notoriously weak in those days,
and I don't know the technical facts, but WAPT's reach couldn't have been more than in
a 60-mile radius around Jackson--far short of the southern end of CA's southern
boundary in the Mississippi Delta.

Meanwhile, 3) WJTV probably had a similar reach to WLBT, some 75-90 standard miles
as one would expect from a V in a geographically large, predominantly rural market like
Jackson. Its signal, by contrast, was probably visible in the southern part of the Delta. So
the CA's listing WAPT really made no sense.

Also conspicuously missing are the Arkansas stations, namely the three Little Rock V
affils, Jonesboro ABC affil KAIT, and the state ETV system. Perhaps this listing was
culled from a separate edition aimed at the areas east and south of Memphis, I don't
know. But that would be the only explanation I could imagine.

Further, only one Nashville station is listed for those parts of western Tennessee near
the Tennessee River within the fringe areas of the 100-mile signals of the Vs in that
market--WTVF. Strangely enough, in those days, WTVF was short-spaced to Memphis'
WMC-TV, the NBC affil. Wonder how cable systems (what few existed then, probably)
and viewers fared with two close signals warring for that channel space? But more to the
point, why didn't the CA list ABC affil WNGE (now WKRN) or NBC affil WSM (now
WSMV)? Those two stations probably came in much clearer to viewers east of Jackson,
Tennessee, without the interference that would have dogged WTVF back in the day (all
memories now with DTV and ubiquitous cable, of course).

Point being, the CA was pretty arbitrary in its selections for the daily TV page. It may not
have been so with the Sunday insert, perhaps approaching the breadth of the old
Louisville Courier-Journal, with its listing of every TV signal that came into the state of
Kentucky. But I don't think I would have found the CA reliable if I were living in those
times. About the only thing that our new technologies have made simpler, IMO, is the

elimination of out-of-market OTA signals from cable systems (most of them, anyway).

as one would expect from a V in a geographically large, predominantly rural market like
Jackson. Its signal, by contrast, was probably visible in the southern part of the Delta. So
the CA's listing WAPT really made no sense.

Even more so, notably missing from this lineup is the one VHF station in the
Greenwood/Greenville area - WABG Channel 6 (ABC). I can't speak for its reach - and I
can only guess (without looking at old BC Yearbooks) that in 1976 they were still on a
shorter tower. Still, that would be an ABC I'd include before going with WAPT.

[side remark: There was an ad I saw in a late '60s Clarion-Ledger for WABG 6, touting
"the full ABC schedule" ... so I'm led to wonder how close a watchable signal extended
toward Jackson]

As for the Appeal's circulation area, I can guess that it's highly doubtful it reached much
beyond US 82 across the state. Below that, and you're in prime Clarion-Ledger territory.

At the same time, I do believe WAPT was on the cable system in Starkville (and for a
time, even WBRC/Birmingham was, too).

But that still doesn't explain the omission of WJTV 12. Prior to WXVT 15 powering up out
of Greenville and bring a local CBS to the area, I'd think WJTV had just as much
influence as WREG ... corresponding with the overlap of NBC on WLBT and WMC.

Or, here's a more proper short


answer: ?????????????????????????????????????????

Also conspicuously missing are the Arkansas stations, namely the three Little Rock V
affils, Jonesboro ABC affil KAIT, and the state ETV system. Perhaps this listing was
culled from a separate edition aimed at the areas east and south of Memphis, I don't
know. But that would be the only explanation I could imagine.
That's an even bigger head-scratcher. Jonesboro's cable historically carried the Little
Rock stations along with Memphis and local KAIT (and KTEJ 19 - AETN's repeater when
it signed on in 1976). Fact is, most of the Little Rock stations had virtually statewide
coverage cable-wise at one time or another.

KATV was even carried on the cable in West Memphis at one time.

I know the tv listings in the Commercial Appeal were zoned but that wouldn't explain this
channel line up.

WNGE was probably not viewed in too many counties where the CA circulated but WSM
was on the cable in Jackson along with WTVF.

Despite being on channel 5, WTVF was on the cable in more of West TN than any of the
other Nashville stations. There where some places in Northwest TN where ABC was
apparently WBBJ, NBC was WPSD and CBS was WTVF instead of WREG or KFVS
which makes no sense to me.

Re: RETRO: MID-SOUTH, OCT. 4TH, 1976
To Brian and Russell:

Russell, good job building upon my concerns! I didn't even notice the absence of WABG,
which makes all of this even more strange as hell. On channel 6, I suspect it might have
been seen as far north as Oxford and Tunica, perhaps, in counties that had plenty of CA
subscribers and paper boxes.

I don't know nearly as much about Arkansas, but I suspect you would be right in that at
least one, if not all, of the Little Rock Vs would be viewed in places like Forrest City,
Marianna, and Helena, in the Delta region. Maybe the CA didn't get good circulation in
Arkansas outside the extreme eastern counties along present-day Interstate 40, as it
might have in Mississippi. We must remember that Little Rock had a spirited competition
between two dailies, the Democrat and the Gazette (which have since merged), that
were surely available everywhere in the state, thereby leaving many retailers with no
room to have CA boxes in addition to the Little Rock dailies and the local papers.

As for you, Brian, you have brought up a point that is way-crazy, even by the standards
of that time. People would actually prefer watching CBS on Nashville's channel 5,
knowing full well that the signal might get interrupted by Memphis' WMC, rather than a
perhaps fuzzier, but more certain picture from WREG or even KFVS? On cable, of
course, it would not have been an issue due to different head ends (I would love to find
out info about where they would have been located), but cable was only available in the
county-seat towns (if there); out in the country, you apparently had to take your chances.
Has anybody on this forum ever spent time in ages past in that no-man's land (sorry,
ladies, for being sexist) of rural western Tennessee and encountered the WTVF/WMC
short-spacing issue and the war those signals obviously fought for reception on your
set?

I think your smiley answer, Russell, is the only one that can be provided regarding these
issues. But here's something to remember: the CA listed its sister TV station, WMC, first
everyday in the listings before WREG, WHBQ, and WKNO, despite having only the
second channel number sequentially (3, 5, 10, 13). The parent organization back then,
of course, was Scripps-Howard, then one of the biggest publishers and broadcasters

around. That may explain, for instance, the decision not to list Nashville's WSM as a rival
NBC station for western Tennessee (or KARK for eastern Arkansas)--although to be fair,
it did list WPSD for northwestern Tennessee, WTWV for northeastern Mississippi, and
WLBT for the Mississippi Delta. It also suggests that the paper "played favorites" with
those stations it did list, favoring some and excluding others on the basis of its
perceptions of how each station would affect the ratings of WMC. Sounds cynical, I
know, but even then TV was a cut-throat biz. (But then, how do you explain the absence
of the ETV systems in Arkansas and Mississippi? PBS had, as it does today, only a
miniscule audience.)
