Getting another freak on

Earlier in the week I got my game show freak on with a posting of the 1975 Wheel of Fortune Pilot.  Well now comes time to get my sign-off freak on.  For those of you born in the 1990’s, a sign-off or closedown as they say in England, is when a TV station has finished its programming for the day and is leaving the air.  Most of the time it’s done here in the states by playing the National Anthem.  One such film which I have dubbed the Moog SSB, is featured in this 1982 sign-off (30 years ago) of WABC-TV Channel 7.  Handling the duties (LIVE I might add) is Tedd Lawrence…

Two words…EPIC CLASSIC!!!!!! I ALWAYS KNEW ABC7 AIRED THIS VERSION OF THE ANTHEM.

A few years later, they would go to this…with Wally Parker putting ABC7 to bed

And just to balance things out, here’s a 1984 sign-on…using an SSB guaranteed to wake you up!
