30 Years Ago Today

Here's a commercial for "Chicago's Finest Rock" radio station WXRT 93.1 FM - this one promoting weekday mornings with Terri Hemmert from 6 AM to 10 AM. Background music at the beginning is I.G.Y. by Donald Fagen (of Steely Dan fame). This aired on July 10, 1984.

Terri Hemmert is still at WXRT but not on her midday show due to knee replacement surgery for her right knee and physical therapy. Breakfast With The Beatles is temporarily a one hour show Sundays at 9 AM for awhile except for Ringo's two hour birthday special July 6th. She also teaches at Columbia College Chicago and volunteers for a number of causes.

I had Terri Hemmert for a teacher at Columbia and she's really cool. A wonderful person you rarely see in radio.

Another song heard in the background is "Lawyers in Love" by Jackson Browne.

For the way my sister still talks about Terri Hemmert, I assume she's still there

How can a movie made for television be edited for television?

The same perky actress is seen in a 1976 commercial for Fab laundry detergent at 0:30 into this YouTube clip.

Good clip. I'm pretty sure the music is borrowed from Dan Curtis' 1968 Jekyll and Hyde starring Jack Palance.

The dark haired girl in the Sani-Flush ad looks familiar-and sounds like Mary Tyler Moore.
