I don't really spend as much time as I should trawling YouTube, but clips like the ones I found tonight make me want to change that. If you were in New York in the late '70s, you might remember a couple of our local TV stations, WOR (Channel 9) and WPIX (Channel 11, a/k/a "11 Alive!"), from before they got bought out by big superstation networks. Here's a bit of footage from those halcyon days. Keep your eye out for John Tesh in the CBS spot.
