WWJ Channel 4 - "Partial Station Sign-Off" (1978)

Views: 7948

At the end of a tape, after a recording of a movie ended, there was a bit of a previous recording that was taped over. We see most of the National Anthem, then some strange black and white bars, and then static. In the static you can hear bleeding through what perhaps was on another channel at the same time (during the static the tape kept speeding up which is why the audio races at times)

RetroNewfoundland (Vintage Canada) was enterprising enough to slow down the audio heard a...

Now for some more neat old TV-44 footage!

Here is an excerpt of the ending to The 1 O'Clock Movie presentation of the animated "Gulliver's Travels" on WSNS. (cut-off, sadly) You can hear the same music as in the opening start to fade-up, and we see a flash of what the opening title looked like in color!

Unfortunately (we can always find something to complain about, can't we?) the person who recorded this 29 years ago (who at the time had no idea his recording...

Views: 2026

The transfer of this video clip made possible by your generous donations!

Here's a very small excerpt of the very tail end of a News/Sports Wrap (try one, they're delicious) with Chet Coppock that aired on WFLD Channel 32. At the time, Mr. Coppock was one of the station's staff announcers (as was Del Clark), as well as sportscaster; only in his early 20's at the time, he went on to a long career in sports broadcasting, and is regarded as one of the fathers of spo...
