[pdx] A 1986 Tom Peterson's Commercial

UPdate, 25 May 08: I just detected that I'm getting a surge in traffic from the OLive forums due to posting and linking to this priceless bit of PDXana. Welcome and ... please, look around, comment. Links gladly reciprocated!

949. Here's a link from an anonymous benefactor in this entry.

We give you Tom Peterson, ca. 1986:

Tom Peterson's, the happy place to buy! And with a 19" Big Screen TV, how could you go wrong?

In 1986, the merger with Stereo Stupid Stores hadn't happened yet, so as far as we all were concerned, the good times were set to roll indefinitely.

But then, the 1980's were't just a different time. They were a different planet.

Good times. Good Times.

Oh man, I totally remember this commercial running during Portland Wrestling on KPTV! Does anyone out there remember those talking Tom Peterson alarm clocks?

Judy of Persistent Illusion, that lucky unit she, sure does. She owns one and graciously allowed me a copy of a the sound file.

You'll find that here.

Anyone have one of the "Wake Up!" commercials?

Not that I've been able to find so far. I sure hope someone can get one ...
