    • Ah, I should have known it was a jingle collector (and one from the UK at that). I'm making an educated guess that he dubbed the audio to another tape back in the 80s, and that we won't get to see that video any time in the near future. Oh well.   Maybe someday I'll digitize the Calico demo containing animation for several Peters imaging IDs, but both my VCR and DVD recorder died. I should ask eyeontv from YT, my multi-gen dub traces back to him.   I've said this before either in this thread or another, but it included K2 The Free Spirit, 2 Belongs for KHON, 13 Belongs for what was then KSHO - and I still believe that KTNV 1981 was part of that image package - as well as the ID animation for XETV See the Difference, which was not a news package but which I am now starting to suspect might have been Peters as well. I am also wondering if Calico might have done the 2 A New Beat and 2 Together (WJBK) animations, since they look very similar, even if a lot of backlit animation-stand photography looked similar anyway (the only real way to know is to have a demo reel, or find a print ad in an old trade magazine like Millimeter).
    • TServo2049, I came across these links on a Facebook group called Radio Jingles and Airchecks which you can check out at https://www.facebook.com/groups/1571170363164821/. In fact, The link to the original post concerning the Peters Productions VIdeo Sound Track audio can be seen at https://www.facebook.com/groups/1571170363164821/permalink/2793500540931791/ while the original post for the KUTV 2 Together Peters package can also be seen at https://www.facebook.com/groups/1571170363164821/permalink/2793618074253371/. 
    • Darn, if you don't know, I guess that means you don't have the video. Are you at liberty to say how you obtained these? (If you aren't comfortable saying publicly, but you are in PM, I did ask you there already.) I wonder if the source has the video copy, or just this audio.   As to WTVD 1979, I've been convinced that it's Peters for years. It has the "Together" slogan (which I believe Peters still had the trademark on at that time), it uses lettering very similar to the Combined-era "Alive" imaging on WXIA/KOCO/WLKY, and I thought Ed Peters told me over the phone years ago that he remembered WTVD being a client (but my memory could be wrong). And it sure sounds like Peters, especially the more we learn about what Peters sounded like.
    • I wish Nightline would go back to their Edd Kalehoff theme too.
    • That just doesn’t look right, at all.   Yep and WKRN delayed again until after the Election we were told on Friday.   They want to make sure EVERYTHING is perfect for air and the ND isn’t happy with it just yet. It’s getting there though, they have tested it and producers are training on it.   WKRN is NOT getting set updates but a new studio floor, which will have the newscasts done from the newsroom this weekend while that’s being done. Not us. Probably someone else.
