If Stan has to balance his checkbook, the charge is $40 an hour! Comment posted by smctopia on Sunday, June 15th 2008 at 8:17pm.
here's how the rest of that "Hello Stan?" conversation went....
"I thought I'd get up nice and early, take a walk down to the bank...and if you don't have my money I'll bash your (FCC banned word) head in"..this is of course in reference to Joe Pesci's character Nicky Santoro in the movie "Casino" Comment posted by GalagaFleetCommander on Tuesday, May 4th 2010 at 10:41am.
Very amusing how basically most people now a days would laugh at needing a "personal banker" to do most of these things. Most telling is... a scene where a person is on a public pay phone, calling a personal banker to simply move money from savings to checking, lol.

POWWW! POWWW! POWWW! (obscenity) POWWW! (Lord's name in vain) POWWW! POWWW! WHY WON'T THIS THING WORK (more obscenities)...I know quite a few adults who would've made this game more entertaining on the air.
WGN's New York City sister station, WPIX Channel 11, had a famous variant of this Tv POWWW gimmick during this same period; their version was called Tv PIXxx. Unlike here, the various games were presided over by off-screen staff announcers Bill Biery and Ralph Lowenstein, with alternations among still slides, video CGI's, and the primitive computer games in place then.
Ralph Penza was mostly a fixture on New York City television. At the time of this aircheck, he'd left WCBS Channel 2 (where he'd been since the mid-'60's) for then-sister station WCAU the year before. He'd return to New York in 1980 for a long run at WNBC Channel 4 (of which WCAU is now a sister station) that lasted on and off to not long before his death in 2007. On YouTube is a brief clip of a Sunday newscast anchored by Penza on WCBS in early to mid-1976, just prior to his joining WCAU.
It was around this time that WCAU replaced their prior color cameras (apparently RCA TK-42) with the same Thomson TTV-1518's as in use at WBBM.
Funny they had Orlando wearing that Bulls jersey considering that Chicago had switched to the current design the previous season. Perhaps this was a rerun of a commercial earlier in Woolridge's career.
At 1:12 in this video, you see a technician slide away the chroma key wall. Compare that to WCAU, the CBS station in Philadelphia in 1977, they had it on a fly system. http://www.fuzzymemories.tv/index.php?c=4771 at 0:45.
