A typical sign-off used by the ABC Television Network's New York key station, consisting of static network and station logo graphics and a live voice-over announcement, delivered here by Ted Lawrence. In the years prior to when this clip was recorded, there was mention of the Television Code of the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) and the display of the Code Seal of Good Practice (hear the audio clips posted below). The "Moog SSB" film that follows is named such because the National Anthem is played on a Moog synthesizer, an elaborate electronic musical instrument developed by Robert A. Moog in the late 1960s. The Moog SSB film was also used by WABC-TV's West Coast sibling KABC-TV in Los Angeles for many years. By the following year, 1983, WABC-TV had dropped the Moog SSB film in favor of another (view via link below)
