WMAQ Channel 5 - "Memory" (1984)

Here's a video montage (missing beginning part) that WMAQ Channel 5 used as part of their sign-off apparently for a few years. It features the song "Memory" from the musical "Cats", and showcases Chicagoland senior citizens and various aspects in their lives. Kind of a strange thing to show during sign-off. I mean, for what purpose was this made? Other than to make you realize that your life is going by as you watch TV at 3 in the morning before the station signs-off? ;-)

No that's not Barbra Streisand singing - it's Betty Buckley.

The copyright for this says 1984, but this airing is probably from after that because you can see the newer-style logo at the very end when Jim Hill announces the end of the broadcast day, before the tape cuts off. If I'm not mistaken this logo first appeared in January 1986.
