Here's an excerpt from PM Magazine Chicago featuring a behind-the-scenes look at M*A*S*H along with interviews with some of the cast. And there it is again - That music during the end of the report is the same jazzy version of the M*A*S*H theme that WFLD Channel 32 used for their bumpers when airing the episodes in the very early eighties. It's by Ahmad Jamel and can be found on the 1974 re-issue of the movie soundtrack album in place of the vocal version of "Suicide Is Painless." This aired on local Chicago TV on Monday, May 11th 1981. Visit - http://www.FuzzyMemories.TV The Museum of Classic Chicago Television - for more fun!

Here's a great feature on Rich Koz and the Son of Svengoolie that aired on PM Magazine Chicago featuring Mike Leiderman. Has a lot of really great footage, even of some famous Berwyn landmarks. (having grown up in the area this footage is priceless to me) So many great things in this piece it's almost hard to count - love the footage of old WFLD in Marina City - I don't know anywhere else where you can see what it used to look like. I like the Kaiser-era logo hanging down and then the original logo next to the elevator. Really cool. This is from the master 3/4" tape of the story, so it doesn't have the PM Magazine graphics that were shown on the off-air version. (you can see that version here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZlZzUWPQxEE ) (notice that the colorbars don't say WFLD on them) ;-) This aired on local Chicago TV on Friday, July 31st 1981.

in 1976, KPIX-TV in San Francisco was the first Group W station to air the locally produced "Evening Magazine." The show soon spread to the four other Westinghouse stations. The program's success prompted Group W to franchise the "Evening" concept to dozens of stations around the country where it was titled "PM Magazine." This clip is an excerpt from the KPIX's 10th anniversary special. All rights are acknowledged.

Oddly, iconic WKBW-TV news anchor Irv Weinstein was featured on the premiere of PM Magazine on WIVB-TV in 1979. Hosted by Debbie Stamp and Don Moffitt (sp?), the show featured an in depth interview with Weinstein and his family, including son Marc Weinstein of Amoeba Records fame. Also featured are promos for Skybird 4, WIVB's news helicopter, and a spectacularly 70s promo for News 4 anchor John Beard, now with cross-town rival WGRZ-TV. At the end of the tape, another treat-- Glendora-- known in Buffalo as a 1970s late-nite TV salesperson in Buffalo, but known around the country for her community access TV show "A Chat with Glendora" and activism in many arenas. Classic Buffalo TV at its finest!

Here's most of a Friday edition of PM Magazine Chicago on WFLD Channel 32, hosted by Jo Ann Williams and Mike Leiderman, mainly dealing with the legendary "Second City" troupe. Also features a gardening segment from Jerry Baker, a "Self Department" segment from Captain Carrot, and a "Chicago Weekends" look at the zoo with Irene Rodriguez. (Commercials not included.) Includes: Opening titles An overhead look at the "Second City" building on the corner of North and Wells, from which the hosts emerge to introduce the program, mention the names that emerged from the troupe (Nichols & May, Shelley Berman, and half of Saturday Night Live's cast as up to that point) and preview the segments for tonight's show which, after the "Second City" look, includes: - A piece on con man Don Straits - Gardening tips from Jerry Baker - Captain Carrot on food allergies and migraines - A look at the zoo with Irene Rodriguez Next comes the Second City profile, leading off with vintage pictures of former members including Alan Arkin, Peter Boyle, Joan Rivers, Avery Schreiber, Robert Klein, Fred Willard and David Steinberg; Saturday Night Live alumni Dan Aykroyd, Gilda Radner, Bill Murray and John Belushi; and many more. Mike is on the stage at 1616 North Wells where the "props" and "scenery" are just some chairs and doors. Clips of SCTV - whose members largely came from Second City's Toronto branch - are shown (though Mike says that show's cast had worked in Chicago). This leads into a profile of the national touring company (compared to a minor league baseball farm team) that performs in Chicago on Mondays, with interviews with associate producer Joyce Sloane (1930-2011), performers Mike Hagerty, John Kapelos, Bob Clemons, Kate Nolan, Jim Fay, Maureen McCarthy, pianist Ruby Streak, and newcomer Rick Thomas (brother of Chicago Bears' placekicker and future Illinois Supreme Court Justice Bob Thomas), and clips of typical performances by this troupe including at New Trier East High School in Winnetka. Mike even attempts to take his place in one of their skits. The piece ends with a "Next: Departments" bumper. (The piece about the "con man gone straight" wasn't included in this recording) Next, Jo Ann is at the Piper's Alley Mall in Old Town, where she introduces the "Departments" segments that, in order of appearance, are: - "Home" - Jerry Baker on what and how to feed our plants - "Self" - Captain Carrot on the link between food allergies and migraines - "Discovery" - Irene Rodriguez at the Brookfield Zoo, on how to adopt an exotic animal After the last segment, Jo Ann gives a phone number on how to do so. This is followed by a "Stay With Us" bumper. Mike and Jo Ann emerge from Piper's Alley, where he tries out a bad joke before they preview Monday's edition: - A Pittsburgh dancing couple hoping to compete on Dance Fever - Kentucky Fried Chicken's original Colonel Sanders, celebrating his 90th birthday - Chef Tell on how to use pastry tubes for desserts - Dr. Jim Wasco with a quiz on hypertension - Linda Harris on tips for a trip to Florida With that, they say good night, followed by ending titles.

This was a PM Magazine Feature produced at WFAA-TV in Dallas in the late 1970's showing behind the scenes as the 6 o'clock news is put together. These were the days before cable tv penetration, computers, the proliferation of microwave and satellite trucks, the Internet, and smartphones.
