I cant find any recent Birmingham news openings; but, I did locate these very old Birmingham openings from 27 years ago and 31 years ago respectively.

One of the news stories is about outrageous gas prices - almost $1.00 in some places.

All I could think of while watching the opening segment of that 1979 news cast from Memphis is: "You stay classy San Diego".

youtube is a good source for many. My favorite one is the WBTV Charlotte opening from 1997.

WOW! I didn't know that ole bitch Ham Puff was on Channel 13 that long ago. James Spann with hair. The horror! :nuts: I waited tables while going to UAB, and all the TV people used to come into the restaurant I worked at. I always wanted to put a booger in Ham Puff's egg salad. Skanky, hateful ole bat she is.
