ON TV/WFLD Channel 32 - ON TV Sign-Off & Nite-Owl Bleed-Thru (1981)
Ok, here's something kind of nuts, but I thought some people might want to see it anyway. Here's the ending of Apocalypse Now and then the station sign-off for ON TV on WSNS Channel 44. Once the station goes off the air, you can just barely make out the "bleed through" of WFLD Channel 32's signal where they were airing Nite-Owl!
At various times throughout this I can make out "Weather Update" (with a Sun graphic, the Nite-Owl logo, the Keyfax "key" at the top left of the screen, and at about 8 minutes in - the WFLD graphic. Static is kind of hard to capture digitally I think - the picture looks maybe about 5-10% better on the actual tape than here. Still, you can barely make out anything. Technically, this counts as new Nite-Owl footage though. ;p
This was pretty early in Nite-Owl's history since they had only started about 5 weeks before this on Monday, September 7th 1981.
ON TV ending voiceover by Lloyd Hanson. WSNS closing voiceover by Mal Wyman.
This aired on local Chicago TV on early Thursday, October 15th 1981 at a little after 12:30am.
