Here's another classic L.A. sign off sequence, this time from KABC. Other sign offs have been posted from earlier in the '80s however.
This begins with Dianetics, Norms Restaurants and Southern California College of Optometry commercials. Then Roger Carroll is the voiceover for the sign-off announcement, which doesn't contain a lot of technical information, but reminds viewers to tune to KABC-AM or KLOS-FM for entertainment. The classic High Flight poem video is then showed (dating back into the 1,970s) followed by the Moog SSB video (this was also used at WABC NYC in the 1,970s/80s). At the end is a bonus...a classic 1,960s KABC B&W test pattern with the ABC logo prominently displayed in the middle! Not sure when they went off that evening, but I suppose 3 or 4 in the morning, based off the Movie Greats airing earlier.
