“Everybody’s Going To The Moon”(7/12/69)

That headline was the title of a song performed by Leslie Uggams, who happened to grace the Chicago Tribune TV WEEK cover on this week in 1969. And why not? We were about to launch 3 men into space with that celestial being as their destination and Uggams herself was about to “launch” a Sunday night variety series in the fall. Armstrong/Aldrin/Collins would indeed reach their destination, as for Uggams, she made only a few “orbits” when her show was axed in December. As for the rest of that week’s issue, I’ll leave the link, then lead you to a couple of pages where you’ll find a couple of WLS-TV movie ads which are quite amusing. First the link, then the pages…
