My friends and me thought these were the best commercials on television at the time, and looked forward to seeing them during the breaks from Wally George on one of those local UHF stations.

Wasn't there an Indiana Jones one too? I haven't found any such one on Youtube yet.

Bought my first turntable (Kenwood) and cassette deck at Federated, in Temple City, while a college student living in Pasadena. I think it was 1987, or so.

I thought that guy looked familiar:

Shadoe Stevens:

"During the early 1980s, Stevens gained an additional cult following when he created and produced "Fred R. Rated for Federated," a long-running series of offbeat television commercials for The Federated Group, a chain of home electronics retailers in the western and southwestern United States. These ads were so popular they were the subject of a two-page spread in Time Magazine and led to a movie deal, television shows, and American Top 40."
