Over the next several weeks, links to video downloads will be added to the individual
sign-off pages for the benefit of those who, due to issues with their browsers,
cannot get the video to appear inside the page. For those using Android devices who
cannot view the video in the page, the Webmaster recommends using the Dolphin

This site, founded in 2007, 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.

To view the streaming video clips on this site, you will need at least a basic Broadband Internet connection (DSL/cable/WiFi), unless you are among those few remaining dial-up users possesing an extraordinary amount of patience.

Thank you all very much for viewing the site. Any comments or suggestions are welcome.
