One of my most successful posts on the blog is my article about the late and lamented Philadelphia TV station, WKBS Channel 48. No matter what I'm currently blogging about, this article is always in the top two or three most read articles at any given time. As demand for information on the station continues, and as it's been over two years since I wrote the last article, it's high time I featured Channel 48 again. So without further ado, here goes!
Here are a couple of quick voiceovers between programs. The second clip is credited to Don Rose, a legendary radio DJ who voiced all of the Field TV stations, but I'm not sure it's him in this case. The voice sounds a bit high, but his inflections are there.
Going back even before I was born, here are some audio airchecks of promos from 1970. This is before Kaiser Broadcasting and Field Communications merged.
Don't miss Sanford & Son tomorrow night at 7:30!
Next is a news brief (featuring future KYW Newsradio anchor Pat Farnack) and even an editorial, something TV stations rarely do anymore.
Finally, here are a few clips edited from viewings of Channel 48's 8:00 movie that aired on weeknights, including station promos and various commercials.
Here is another blog dedicated exclusively to Kaiser/Fleids stations. Unfortunately, it hasn't been updated in a few years, but the material that is there is good stuff.
