new audio airchecks have been added to the History of WDNL page.
They feature, yours truly, from 1981 and in 2000. Videos
(Above): I was a
big fan of "The Soupy Sales Show" as seen on WTVP in the
early Metromedia days of the Decatur ABC affiliate. See the History of WAND.
It's hard to describe "The Soupy Sales Show" as a kids show....it was
as I loved it as a 7 to 11 year old, but it also had appeal to the
adults males as well. Even the Rat Pack did a guest appearance on
the show and was involved in a pie fight. This clip is with
"Pookie" the puppet Lion.
(Above): "The Adventures
of Ozzie and Harriet" was one of the TV's longest running live action
sit coms having transitioned from radio in the late 40s to early
50s. It was a staple on ABC during most of its run.
Looking quite corny by todays standards, and even then it was rather
corny, the series was very easy to watch....and enjoy. So,
enjoy this episode complete with original commercials.
