WJAN-TV Test Pattern..probably from the early 1970's
A pair of 2-inch quad tape machines..Dave Little of Canton owns a few of these machines..(not sure about these particular ones) And has been copying various older Hoolihan and Big Chuck skits..To save them for posterity.And possible future DVD sets of skits..
Early view of the original WJAN studio and transmitter location..At the corner of Reno Drive and California Avenue in Louisville, Oh. near St. Thomas Aquinas High School-Just outside the Canton City limits.
This was the transmitter that was turned off last night..All of WDLI's digital facilities are in Akron..
This appears to be a logo slide of WJAN-Gives you a better idea of what the lettering on the logo looked like. When I first started watching WJAN on occasion in the 1970's..I did not like the "eye" dotting the J in the logo...looked somewhat creepy to me..
Big thanks to Ed for these pictures..If he has any more of WJAN, and he doesnt mind, I'll add them to this post..
Here is a 3-part summary of the History of WJAN/WDLI I did in 2007..
Not as complete as I'd like but it's still hard to find much on WJAN-TV Canton on the net, even 2 years later..Just about nothing on YouTube..
