One summer Friday night late (possibly around the Forth of July) I managed to pick up the three primary TV stations of the Hampton Roads area of Virginia, WTKR-TV 3 (CBS), WVEC-TV 13 (ABC) and the NBC affiliate featured here. The clip commences with a WAVY Easter Seals promotion featuring then weekend sports anchor John Castleberry, who would defect to rival WTKR-TV 3 a few years later. The brief sign-off announcement is followed by the music video "Your'e Covered", the slogan WAVY-TV 10 was using during most of the 1980s. The montage features WAVY news personnel and scenes of the Hampton Roads area as well as brief snippets of Cheers, M*A*S*H, and Geraldo. The very-familiar U.S. Air Force "Aim High" SSB film follows, then color bars.

NOTE: The video files featured on this website are taken from my VHS home recordings of over-the-air and cable video captures, clips contributed by others and clips downloaded from YouTube and similar sites. The quality varies from clip to clip, due to TV reception and recording issues.
