I remember when the station would go back on in the morning they would play the anthem!
yes...and your black and white t.v. had to warm up before it came on!
I used to get up really really early and just wait in front of the test pattern for something to come on!
Not to mention the chore of adjusting the channel to hold still.
Yes! I remember the anthem playing in the morning, too and sitting in front of the test pattern waiting for that first show of the day. :)
I can recall some of the channels would sign off at midnight...then it was 3am...I also remember playing with uhf trying to get more channels...lol
