Not from a Chicago airing, but still interesting - here's a record offer commercial for the compilation Music Machine from K-tel (catalogue number TU 2560), with what looks like Robby the Robot of "Forbidden Planet" and Lost in Space fame playing the title character for this ad.
Features snippets of such hits from the late 1976 - mid-1977 period as "Blinded by the Light" by Manfred Mann's Earth Band, "I Just Want to Be Your Everything" by Andy Gibb, "Keep It Comin' Love" by KC and The Sunshine Band, "Dancing Queen" by ABBA, and "Do You Wanna Make Love" by Peter McCann.

About The Museum of Classic Chicago Television:
The Museum of Classic Chicago Television's primary mission is the preservation and display of off-air, early home videotape recordings (70s and early 80s, primarily) recorded off of any and all Chicago TV channels; footage which would likely be lost if not sought out and preserved digitally. Even though (mostly) short clips are displayed here, we preserve the entire broadcasts in our archives - the complete programs with breaks (or however much is present on the tape), for historical purposes. For information on how to help in our mission, to donate or lend tapes to be converted to DVD, and to view more of the 4,000+ (and counting) video clips available for viewing in our online archive, please visit us at:
