Add to EJ Playlist Here's another old local movie show opening - The Nine O'Clock Movie presentation of "Marty" on WKBD Channel 50 in Detroit. (voiceover by ??)
Notice there are different opening graphics from the one we saw from February 1977. http://www.fuzz ymemories.tv/?c =2809 (also note they didn't have the animated Kaiser ID at that time)
Also includes the animated Kaiser Broadcasting ID and a WKBD bumper slide promo for Liars Club at the beginning (voiceover by ??)
This aired on local Detroit TV on Monday, April 25th 1977 at 9pm! (not Chicago TV, but still cool)
About The Museum of Classic Chicago Television:
The Museum of Classic Chicago Television's primary mission is the preservation and display of off-air, early home videotape recordings (70s and early 80s, primarily) recorded off of any and all Chicago TV channels; footage which would likely be lost if not sought out and preserved digitally. Even though (mostly) short clips are displayed here, we preserve the entire broadcasts in our archives - the complete programs with breaks (or however much is present on the tape), for historical purposes. For information on how to help in our mission, to donate or lend tapes to be converted to DVD, and to view more of the 4,000+ (and counting) video clips available for viewing in our online archive, please visit us at:

Add to EJ Playlist Originally aired on Sunday afternoon, July 3, 1983. WXYZ was and is the ABC affiliate in Detroit, Michigan.
Local sports anchor/reporter Steve Garagiola is working in the sidelines for ABC's broadcast of USFL football between the Arizona Wranglers and Michigan Panthers. Garagiola was working for WXYZ at the time and was presumably brought in to work this game.
Steve interviews Anthony Carter, John Corker and Bobby Hebert and is also in the locker room celebration.
Presently, Steve is working for WDIV, the NBC affiliate in Detroit.

Add to EJ Playlist From 1995, here is a very rare station id from WGPR-TV (now WWJ-TV), then the new CBS affiliate in Detroit. All copyrights acknowledged. According to Wikipedia, WGPR was a very low rated independent station owned by the African American Masons. It became the CBS affiliate for Detroit when WGPR switched to Fox. It is now a CBS O&O. For the first 8 months of its CBS affiliation, it kept the WGPR call letters before switching them to today's WWJ. It's big!
Add to EJ Playlist From the 1990s, here is a sign-off from CBET 9 out of Windsor, Ontario, Canada. All copyrights acknowledged. Not sure of exact year but it seems the station signed off around 1:45 AM. Features a duet of "O Canada" and many shots of the Detroit River. Included is about 1 1/2 minutes of the test pattern after the anthem.
Add to EJ Playlist Mort Crim anchors this 1979 news update that unfortunately leaves music running in place of his audio for the first several seconds, followed by a cool commercial for the then-newly formed US Air and a WDIV channel ID.
Add to EJ Playlist I made a custom intro for the 8:00 movie that aired on Detroit's CW affiliate WKBD-TV (Ch. 50) in 1983. This was back during the days when WKBD was the most watched independent station in the Detroit area, long before it's days as a Fox (1986-94), UPN (1995-05) and CW affiliate (2006-present). I used part of a WKBD promo and the 8:00 movie sequence used by WKBS-TV (Ch. 48) in Philadelphia (which, like WKBD and Chicago's WFLD, was owned by Field Communications)
