    Channel 6 Milwaukee circa 1977 featuring Albert the Alley Cat!


    Channel 5 Cleveland circa 1975, this might as well be an Anchorman outtake.

    Hello Milwaukee ...



    ... hello Milwaukee.

    That spot will haunt my dreams. And I was telling Z-Man that I always thought the horse riding bit was bullshit. Where the hell would they ride horses in Milwaukee? Through fucking Washington Park?

    Any SoCalians, especially Long Beach folks, will remember these:

    Is he saying "Go See Cal" or "Pussy Cow"?

    I grew up watching this shiz. What memories.

    Hello Indiana?



    ... hello Indiana?

    Jack ass Hoosiers stealing our shit!*

    It's a good thing I didn't move to Indiana until '86. Indiana circa '80 makes me want to commit suicide. Though I do like the shot of the dude taking a big huge puff off that funky glass bong in the middle of the ad.**






    * I'm sure this spot was used by whatever stations were owned by whatever company it was.
    ** I'm aware he's blowing glass. Blowing glass ... I know when I think of Indiana, I think of blowing glass. Or stuff that blows. :D (kidding, kidding, KIDDING!)

    Love the '80s stuff from the local affiliates in the A-T-L, the television of my youth...

    I present to you Rebecca DeMornay's dad, the one and only, infamous, Wally George.

    Man, I loved this show. WAL-LY! WAL-LY!

    KDOC Channel 56. (This clip is actually interesting about 2/3 way through when they start talkin' Reagan and Bush and Kissinger).
