This 5-column, 3/4-page ad ran on July 21, 1968, in the Kingsport Times-News. I found it when I was going through an old scrapbook. Look! Not a syndicated show in sight; although, the stations did run some NBC and religious programming on the weekends.
I always liked the NBC logo. The microphone is a stylized RCA 44-BX (bi-directional). The WKPT-AM studios used these, since the installation of the equipment after the fire* was supervised by NBC.
*The WKPT studios burned on September 7, 1948, according to the Kingsport Times-News (I misread that date. It was 1946. When I enlarged the page, I saw that it was a “6”, not an “8”, but it was a kind of skeevy 6, at that). The new studio, with all new equipment, opened in ’48.
This is the back of the old Coca-Cola bottling plant on West Sullivan. The trucks backed up this ramp to be loaded for deliveries. Backing up the ramp must have been fun, especially before dawn. Or raining. Or in snow.
The windows in front of the building allowed you to watch the process as the bottles whizzed by. Hot stuff in the ’50s.
This really has to do with Eastman in Rochester, but the key fob and key ring were found at a flea here, so let’s check it out.
The patent office shows that Eastman was granted a patent for this ISO Plus Nutritional Supplement, apparently for those of the bovine persuasion, in 1983, the first known date for the commercial use of this product. As of 1992, however, the patent is shown as “Continued use not filed within grace period, un-revivable”.
Perhaps it just didn’t work out.
