Someone just posted a bunch of old WDIO news, sports and weather promos on YouTube. Here is an assortment of 1970s-era holiday spots — lots of glimpses of old TV news sets and technology … and a brief appearance by Dennis Anderson.
Also posted by the same person, a couple of Duluth commercial blocks from 1970. Here is one (I like the Target ads and the bizarre wig shop spot):
You can find more old WDIO spots and local ads on the poster’s YouTube page. There are some truly weird ads for carpet at Goldfine’s. And FYI… one ad, for camping trailers, contains some pretty offensive Native American imagery. I don’t condone that at all… but offer the link just as a 40-year-old slice of life in Duluth.
