Robert: I can remember, honest, when TV stations SIGNED OFF THE AIR around midnight, certainly by 1:00 a.m. Maybe in New York or Kansas City there were all night stations, but not where I was.

I remember that as a child. WCBS New York remained on all night, but the other stations did a sign off.

The signoff was a miniature apocalypse:
        *first a brief sermon urging the faithful to repent
        *then the Star Spangled Banner played
        *then a picture of an American Indian in a bullseye
        *then white noise and howling static.

All you need for an apocalypse!
