Launched in January 2007, 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 local Late Movie, or whatever. This site featues authentic recordings (and a few re-creations) 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 infomercials, home shopping fare, all-night network news, movies and daytime talk-show reruns.
