I believe someone asked for this once - the weird electronic music that NewsCenter5 apparently used before they replaced it with a more traditional sounding (yet still Electronic-tinged) theme. So, here's an ending of NewsCenter5 on WMAQ Channel 5 that I found recently that features the music. Also has a voiceover promo by Lorry Young for NBC's Saturday Night (later known as Saturday Night Live) Lastly the clip ends with a vintage 70s WMAQ / NBC Station ID slide with the 5 logo. Who's at the anchor desk? Greg Gumbel, Al Meltzler, and who's in the middle?

I think it's hilarious that some of this theme sounds exactly like the sound that speakers pick up when you have a cell phone too close to them. Clearly, someone was picking up a psychic vibe from the future. ;-)

This aired on local Chicago TV Saturday, May 22nd 1976 at a few minutes before 10:30pm.
