TV Used to go OFF!

Here’s a fading memory in the American mind:
   Television was not always a 24-hour thing.
   TV used to go off!

I have had numerous conversations with people about TV and I would say something like, “I really miss the days when TV used to go off”.  About 50% of the time, now, people don’t seem to remember the station signoff or the “High Flight” poem or the National Anthem or the Test Pattern or the Snow.

So I went to my favorite web site (You Tube) and rounded up this video that has everything except the test pattern, but that was easy to find, too.
