Retro Friday: Cheesy Local Los Angeles TV Promos, Circa 1984
Fast forward to 37 seconds in -- has there EVER been a cheesier local TV promo? Check out this one for indie O.C. station KDOC Channel 56 -- "the feeling of the Southland." Ugh, my teeth hurts from all this saccharine!
Then stay tuned for the ad for the 976 date line. Oh, this is all too good. We really were just cheesy in the 1980s.
Then there's this KNBC news promo, also from 1984. Not as cheesy, but still very 80s. And hey, there's George's dad, Nick Clooney, who briefly led the Channel 4 news team back then.
