October 1977

The competition was beginning to thicken.  "Price" and "Pride" couldn't take the pressure.  A&P would be gone from Birmingham by 1980, although they stuck around in smaller Alabama cities well into the 1990s.  Evergreen was the last A&P store in the state to close, I believe it was 1998.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.  30 years later, CFA hasn't changed a bit.  As good now as it was then.
(I'm guessing the Brookwood Village store wasn't participating in this promotion?)

The restaurant is long gone, but a billboard lingers on.

This can be found along old US 280 west through "The Narrows."   It was downgraded to a county road after 280 was realigned to its current four-lane route in about 1981.

And, out-of-sight and out-of-mind (except for some vandals), the fisherman still waits for sea sustenance.

Why was a FORD dealer co-sponsoring this "concert"?  I thought The King liked Caddys....

See all the scary ghosts and goblin--- 
What the--???  How did WSGN's DJs get in here?


Luke, I am your plagiarizer.

Kentucky Fried Movie is notable as the first film by the comedy team of Zucker/Abrahams/Zucker, who would be most famous for Airplane! in 1980, and for The Naked Gun movie series. 

KFM is a true 'midnight cult classic' ... it's not so much a movie as it is a series of movie, TV and commercial spoofs all strung together.  It includes as its 'main feature' a brilliant and spot-on parody of Bruce Lee films ("A Fistful of Yen"). 

See it in action!!


Tim Hollis and his SelectaVision.  Makers of all kinds of neat-to-watch treats!
