Remember When TV Statons Signed off the Air Every Night?
TV-signoffs.com - J. Alan Wall's Television Station Sign-Off Site: "This site is devoted to the memory of a bygone era in American broadcasting when all TV stations' programming ended at the conclusion of Johnny Carson's Tonight Show or The Late Movie. This site will be featuring authentic recordings of U.S. television stations ending their broadcast day with the playing of the Star Spangled Banner (SSB), America The Beautiful (ATB) or some other patriotic piece before cutting the juice or going to a test pattern. With very few exceptions, all U.S. TV stations now operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, filling their overnight schedules with home shopping fare, all-night network news, movies and daytime talk-show reruns."
