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.

The company that offered (for sale, of course) this color test pattern (and laid out the type including the "Broadcasting From Sears Tower" and "Circular Polarization" notices) was a Clifton, NJ firm called Tele-Measurements, Inc., which is still around. In 1977 adverts the company put out in magazines such as Broadcast Engineering and BM/E (Broadcast Management/Engineering), their designation for this type pattern was TM-501, as part of their "Tele-Pat" line. A much earlier version of this pattern was used in Chicago by WFLD Channel 32 in its early years on the air (from its 1966 debut into the early '70's, apparently giving way to electronic color bars around the onset of Kaiser's 1973-77 sojourn).
No doubt when the tape of Fr. Hitpas' sermonette got around to airing on NYC sister station WCBS Channel 2's "Give Us This Day" at sign-on or sign-off, the voiceover (either Pat Connell or Norm Stevens or Roger Forster or whomever) would have announced at the end that it "was presented in cooperation with the Communications Office of the Archdiocese of New York." And if at sign-on, would have been followed by first the station ID, then a 20-or-so-minute slides-only newscast read by the said announcer.
Isn't there a longer, minute version of this commercial? If I remember, they also had a segment where Larry from Perfect Strangers, "Boz Knows Comedy?" and you see Cooky trying to hit Bozo with a pie and as usual, it backfires. I swear I saw it on here. I checked YouTube and there's no such commercial on there.
Around Why-Tee (the phonetic spelling for the initials of YouTube), you have quite a few editorials (and even some editorial feedbacks) from sister station WPIX Channel 11 in New York City, as delivered by Richard N. Hughes who was perhaps the most famous of the editorialists in NYC. Pray tell, who amongst the Chicago TV stations' editorialists would have been better known "at the time"? I'm banking on WMAQ's Dillon Smith . . .
NYC sister station WPIX Channel 11's "Portions..." wording was "Portions Of The Preceding Program Were Pre-Recorded." The "pre-recorded" terminology was used by NYC stations almost uniformly, as if they believed New Yorkers wouldn't understand what "mechanically reproduced" meant.
