Peter Tork (February 13, 1942-February 21, 2019)

Peter Halsten Thorkelson, better known as Peter Tork, was an American musician and actor, best known as the keyboardist and bass guitarist of The Monkees, passed away today from cancer at the age of 77.

Here's the ending for the Lunchtime Fun presentation of The Monkees on WFLD Channel 32.

This aired on June 21, 1982.

WFLD Channel 32 - Lunchtime Fun - "The Monkees" (Ending, 1982)

Here's the ending for the Lunchtime Fun presentation of The Monkees on WFLD Channel 32.

No voiceover, but thought I'd include it anyway. There is a snippet of the Lunchtime Fun graphics at the end before the recording cuts out. I think it was rather rare for WFLD to have ending credits without a voiceover, no?

All in all, these were some fairly disappointing commercial breaks. For "Lunchtime Fun", which is supposed to be kids programming, to have commercials for Time Magazine and cosmetics? Give me a break! Who did they think was watching the show?

This aired on local Chicago TV on Monday, June 21st 1982.

A lot of people would be home at noon on a weekday. Second shift workers would just be getting up, third shift workers would just be going to bed, a lot of college students and young moms, retired people who wanted some company...in fact, you could say that schoolkids were the minority.

As for the commercial breaks, it could be a case that some of their other programs already had the commercials you'd expect for a show targeting kids. For example, the syndicated Underdog, Bullwinkle and Tennessee Tuxedo came with ads for General Mills already in the breaks. I'd guess the toy based shows would have national spots already in them too.

MeTV allows all shows to do their closing credits without voiceover or split screen interruptions.

ChitownTVFan: I was in MeTV's master control on October 16, 2007. They are running at least 11 channels in there between the (now) five WCIUs, WBND ABC 57 South Bend, WDJT CBS 58 Milwaukee, WCWW CW 25 South Bend, WMYS My Michiana South Bend, WYTU Telemundo 63 Milwaukee, WMLW Milwaukee, and they were also aquiring sat feeds of shows to air later. At the time I was there, they couldn't put a bug on the Me channel (now they can). They still do not put up the TV ratings at the start of each program and when returning from a commercial break. Yes, a lot of it is automated, but that is still a lot for two master control operators to handle.

Was Time using either the "Read Time and understand" jingle or the Byrds' "Turn, Turn, Turn" in the aforementioned (unseen) commercial?

Studio76Art - The Time commercial can be seen in one of the other posted breaks for this program. Do a search for it. I don't think it has either of those songs.

Additional note: CHCH in Hamilton began rerunning the series as of January 21, 2019, with special guest appearances by the Diff'rent Strokes main cast in that first episode (originally aired August 24, 1979 on NBC), and a larger cast than what we'd be accustomed to in later seasons as the girls grew up over the years.

George Clooney appeared in a number of Season 7 episodes of The Facts of Life starting with S7E2, which was the episode WGN ran on this particular day.

The Facts of Life information: Season 7 Episode 2: "Into the Frying Pan", originally aired on NBC on September 21, 1985, and the first to have George Clooney in the opening credits, and the second of only three episodes in this particular season to have Edna's Edibles as the opening backdrop. The next opening backdrop to be used (Over Our Heads) debuted two episodes later (S7E4) and would last right to the two-part series finale in 1988.

I see Emmanuel Lewis (Webster) in the last take.

That video was from yesterday. They got the title and video mixed up. In 1959 Ron was a child then, probably not an actor yet.

The voiceover sounds like George Fenneman.

And as of this date, not one copy of this compilation in this form can be found on Discogs.
