Happy Mother's Day to all of the moms out there. Today I added 39 more ads to the channel 4 page. 18 are ads for channel 4 news. There's also one for Beat the Champ and another for Michigan Outdoors with Mort Neff. I also added 20 to the channel 20-WXON page and 13 to the 62-WXON page, including another Robin Seymour ad. I added one more to the NBC page which I forgot yesterday. It's for the 1971 James Garner series Nichols. And finally I added five more to the 62-WGPR page including ads for Detroit Crime Watch, Teen Profile and All Night at the Movies. I think I have everything up now that I have already scanned. More to come later from 1978 to...

I uploaded over 50 additional ads today. Angie Dickinson fans should check out the NBC section She's in four of the nine new ads. I also added 21 to the ABC page. Shows include Charlie's Angels and Battle of the Network Stars. There are also some more Movies of the Week including an ad for "Killdozer" and one for "The Sex Symbol" with Connie Stevens. There's an ad for Evel Knievel's Snake River Canyon jump, too. There's also a few additions to the CBS page including one for The CBS Evening News with Walter Cronkite. There is one ad on each network's page for their September 1976 Saturday morning shows as well. Finally, I added 18 additional ads to the Other Vintage Ads page (near the bottom), including one with Sonny Eliot for Thermal-Seal Windows.

Update: I added over 30 more including an ad with Jo-Jo Shutty-MacGregor on the channel 2 page; two more on the channel 24 page; 4 on the channel 13 page including one each for Jim Mengel and Jennifer Blome; five channel 7 news ads including one with Al Ackerman; five more on the channel 20 page for Dragnet, Get Smart and Room 222; eight more on the channel 11 page; one more on the channel 9 page for The Mary Tyler Moore Show and The Odd Couple; and five more channel 50 ads including another Saturday Night live ad, a Flash Gordon ad and an ad for The Barry Farber Show.

Note: Scanning these ads with the seventies hair styles is really making me laugh. I just put up one with Larry Whatley's afro. He sure looks different today, but then so do I!
