Latest Updates

(November 13, 2014)-Added another WDBR aircheck, from October 3, 1976 to the Area CHR History page....with yours truly as the disc jockey.  It was an early in my career effort at my ultimate radio station!

(November 15, 2014)- Updated the former Television Today to "Mid Illinois Television Today" the complete listing of local television across mid Illinois.  It includes a link to local TV listings from Yahoo TV.

(January 16, 2015)-Updated the "Mid Illinois Television Today" to include the broadcasting of the GRIT network on WICS and WICD.  Also added back the ZUUS Country Music channel as 20.2 on WICS.

(January 19, 2015)-Replaced videos which were discontinued for one reason or another by You Tube probably due to copyright challenges.

(January, 2015-Appealing a copyright challenge of my You Tube post featuring the "Real McCoys" TV series from the 1950s by SFM Entertainment.  My appeal is based on "fair use" of the opening/closing credits of the show and its use on this historical website.  Meanwhile there are dozens of other You Tube posts of "Real McCoys" on You Tube, with many postings of complete episodes of the series!

(January 25, 2015)-still no response from SFM Entertainment....

(January 30, 2015)-updated Mid Illinois Television Today

Videos of the Week
in memory of Leonard Nimoy


(above): Leonard Nimoy made an appearance in another television classic, "Dragnet" in 1954.  Here the 23-year old Nimoy made a brief appearance with first line, "What's the beef?" Little did anyone know the impact this bit player would have on television just 13 years later!


(above):  Here is a clip from a little known TV series "West Point Story."  It includes Leonard Nimoy as a young cadet.  "West Point Story" aired on CBS from October of 1956 to September of 1957.  The final year of the series aired on ABC from October of 1957 to July 1958
